There is no magic about getting elected.

The right wing of the Republican Party has a lot in common with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.  They both used the democratic process to get elected but without the intention of governing.  Instead, they exploited the structural vulnerabilities of the democratic process to seize power and then imposed their ideology on the governed.  Ideology is not a governing principle.  Once in power, they continue to exploit the democratic…

Is Another Iraq Possible?

As I sit in front of my computer, reading the news about the escalation in violence in Iraq, my heart fills with sadness. According to UN reports, more than a thousand people have been killed in May.
