Our own founding fathers recognized that in order for (an indirect) democracy (i.e. a republic) to succeed the people must be at a certain level regarding temperament, education, and character. Democracy isn't right for every nation.

Moslems in Egypt have stated that democracy is merely a step along the path towards a Moslem state (dictatorship). That being the case it isn't necessarily wise that the military of Egypt give up all power (yet) to civilian authorities. If they were to do this prematurely they might end up being another Iran.

Our own government has it's problems, and can't seem to honestly budget.

Hillary needs to stay home and mind her business.
