We should turn our attention again to the Middle East, but not necessarily Israel and the Palestinians. We should focus on Egypt, where the people have decided that they will not tolerate a power grab by President Mohamed Morsi disguised as maintaining order.

Morsi is trying to change the fundamental structure of their government and become a dictator for life. We too are experiencing a test to fundamentally change our government and the sad news is that an overwhelming number of Americans are still asleep at the wheel. We have a president who appoints czars in great numbers, who have no responsibility to the other branches of government as our Constitution has mandated. Our president continues to use fancy legal meandering to avert oversight by the other branches of government to exert his will on "We the People.”

In times past our system would not have allowed this because a responsible media would have highlighted it in such a fashion that the protest would be deafening, as we are witnessing now in Egypt. With no responsible media and a power-hungry administration hell-bent on changing the nation, we face a severe challenge in maintaining the American way of life.
