Egypt On The Brink

February 10, 2011

With everything happening in Egypt these days politicians around the world are watching with great anticipation.  President Mubarak  unwillingness to give up power has spewed the violence in the streets and the world waits.

Today the Vice President took over operations according to news sources minutes ago.  The question here isn’t who is in control now, the question is who will be in control tomorrow?

There will be a revolution in Egypt I am sure. The military will play a key role in the outcome.  Will the military stand for the citizens pushing for reform or will they support the Muslim Brotherhood? That is the question no one knows at this juncture.

If the military defends Egypt and it’s citizens the revolt will be quick with few casualties. They will inform the President and Vice President their goals and then have both removed from office with little resistance hopefully.

If the military defends Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood the revolution will be deep and costly for the country.  Those who are opposed to that direction will not sit by idly and watch their Nation revert back to a dictatorship type of government.

Only when we know where the military stands can we know the direction Egypt will travel down.  WE can only hope and pray the military will back those rallying for peace and democracy. Time will be the telling factor here.


Anchor Babies

There is a new battle going on in America.  There are 6 states that are challenging the 14th amendment giving citizen rights to babies born in America to all individuals.

These states are charging that our Federal Government has not addressed the illegal immigration problem.  There are 360 thousand children born in this country each year to illegal immigrants according to recent estimates with over 1 million individuals granted citizenship or at least green cards to be here while awaiting the proper paperwork to be accepted.

This is what happens when the voice of the people rise up to be heard.  WE THE PEOPLE are tired of our government not working to secure our country, our borders, and our sovereignty.

Let’s watch what happens in the next few months with this case. I believe it could take up to a year to be heard as it works through the court system.  Most importantly is we elected representatives who seem to be standing up united with us, the citizens of these United States and finally saying , “Stop the Insanity”.

Today there are 6 states who appear to be standing united to do what is right for our country. How many more have heard the voices of the people?  Time will tell, stay vigilant and remind your elected representatives they work for us.
