In a parliamentary democracy a Prime Minister can be removed by the party, a government can be removed by a vote of "no confidence" before their terms
are up. There is a mechanism, within government.
In republics, it probably varies but there are mechanisms for the removal of elected officials.
Running amuck in the streets is something that happens after prolonged suffering, not a year or two after someone is elected.
Any business you look at works that way... you hire an inept employee, they don't preform to your standards... you fire them and hire someone
else.... why wait 4 years for them to continue the damage and make your brand or label a laughing stock.
Running a country like a business is fascism. If a business was owned by 70 million people, they would have to vote to fire an employee, vote, not
tear the factory down.
Here in America that is exactly what we are doing... we are going to go the way of Bennington and Ambercrombie soon. I think those Egyptians
may have the right of it. At least they stand up for their rights when they are being infringed.
They have to learn democratic processes. There are ways to do things in a democracy. I'm not in favor of "the mob" as an engine of social or economic
change. That is the road to military dictatorship.
Are you sure that Egyptians want to be responsible for their own affairs, or do they want another "daddy" but a nice daddy this time? It looks like
the latter to me, but I willingly concede that I surely don't have the full details on why Egypt is the way it is.
