Democracy, The Old Fashioned Way

Can you imagine a democracy that was the result of the people living the country rising up and not from an invasion by the U.S.? What happened to the Bush Doctrine? I thought we were the democracy builders for the world? What are those Egyptians trying to do put our military out of business?  Glenn Beck and his crowd were right up front cheering the invasion of Iraq to “free” the people but it seems when its done the old fashioned way he is against it.  Unfortunately when you let people form their own democracy it sometimes doesn’t come out as you might have wanted.

I’m just a simple guy but it seems to be that the world would be a pretty boring place if governments were all cookie cutters from ours.  Not to mention there wouldn’t be anyone for us to borrow money from.  First it is  China teaching us about  capitalism and now Egypt showing us what a democracy is all about. Wouldn’t it be nice if we actually learned a lesson out of all this. But I kind of doubt it.

But what do I know?
