    We have free elections in our Republic with a Democracy where we get the chance to elect a person to be our officials at all levels of government. However, freedoms as we have, come with a price. We have to be educated in what is going on with our basic documents, powers, leaders and voting that our Founding Fathers established with plenty of prayers and faith in a God who loved them.

    Social studies used to include civics, history, government, and related classes that helped students become knowledgeable about their responsibilities and duties, as citizens of this special country. It is not just to listen to snippets in campaigning advertising, the biased news media of all types, and "feeling" good about the person running or holding the office already.

    We have citizens that don't know and understand their civic responsibility. Their job is to have an education to know more than social media but to know what our government is supposed to be.

    Egypt hasn' had that for awhile and this man is trying to be a King Tut with all he power without a check and balance. They don't have freedom of the press and religion.

    Best wishes to the Egyptians. I wish for them the government that represents their views, the government that they deserve. Given the fact that they are not sitting around but are taking to the streets, they deserve better.
