    The government's not hopelessly outnumbered, they're just in a "target rich environment".

    You do realize that it is those to things which made the US right? Are you willing to abolish the US?

    This is off-topic but I wonder why you say that?

    Yeah, some life-forms certainly have self destructive tendencies, but the net effect of life is proliferation and adaption to ensure continued survival, not self-destruction. If it was inherently self destructive, how would life-forms ever have survived past the earliest stages of cell-formation?

    Democracy, on the other hand, is self-destructive. Without non-democratic checks in place democracies collapse into dictatorhips, monarchies, or other more stable forms.

    number of democracies taken over by muslims:0

    number of democracies taken over by bigoted idiots who scapegoat religious minorities: 1

    So far, muslims have a better track record than people like you. Looks like you are the bigger threat.

    I'm gonna have to disagree with that. Pretty sure some of the countries in the Middle East were democracies before the fundamentalist Muslims took power. Even if they weren't, democracy is only coming to those people over their dead bodies. Are they a threat here in the west? No, of course not. That doesn't mean they're not a threat at all.
    For: legalizing drugs, gay marriage, abortion, guns, universal health care, public sector jobs, nuclear power, free education, progressive taxation
    Against: corporations, make-work, the 40 hour work week, intellectual property, imperialism, "homeland security," censorship

    I'm loyal to the State, but my loyalty to the people comes first. We were Americans long before we endeavored to govern ourselves.

    Re: Does the islam form a threat to democracy ?

    Any radical fundamentalist ideology, religious or not, with enough power, weapons or numbers can overturn a democracy. As we've seen in the ME this spring, the ideal of democracy, given enough power, weapons and numbers, has been able to overturn a couple of dictatorships, and leave others struggling to survive.

    Right now we're seeing both the democracy movement and the radicalized Islamist movement gain power in the ME. Only time will tell if the end results will eventually show who wins, who loses, or if it's a draw.

    I don't think there are any that were previously democratic... most middle eastern nations went from being decolonized to complete ****holes.
