    is exactly why we fear The Muslim Brotherhood taking over in Egypt.
    Our Founders sure were smart. They ran from the same problems in Europe and established our government with that lasting principle.

    True. However, the Founding Fathers did make one major MISTAKE in that area which is seriously hurting this country right now, and has been for the better part of a century now.... They decoupled the State from Religion without reminding people that Religion and Morality are NOT the same thing. To that end, American Society has thrown the "babies" of morality, values, and traditional views of the world out with the "bath water" of Religion. Much to the detriment of our current society; at least in my mind.
