Just watching ABC News, and a very interesting report says that Egyptians are taking a serious look at the US Constitution in order to formulate their own Constitution. I have three observations to make here:
1) An Islamic state in Egypt? Forget it. The literacy rate of Egypt is greater than 50%, meaning that fundamentalists don't have a snowball's chance in hell of taking control. Even many of those who are illiterate believe that earning a living has greater importance than installing an Islamic theocracy in Egypt. As much as some are attempting to scare us with the Islamic boogeyman here, the fact is that Egypt is not Iran. Not even close.
2) For those America bashers throughout the world, there is a message. Throughout history, America has mostly worked. In fact, America has worked so well that other nations that are throwing off their own yokes of oppression are looking to America as an example of what they can become. Sure, the resulting government probably won't be that close to what we have, but the fact that they are taking guidance from our Constitution is a good start. The beacon of light that America is, while a bit faded, is not broken. People still look up to us, and that makes me even prouder to be an American.
3) Finally, if Egypt wants our Constitution, who am I to deny it to them? Take it, use it, and revere it for what it is, Egyptians. We haven't been using it lately anyways.
