"Democracy", What a loaded word. It seems everybody is for democracy, but everyone has a different definition for it. I am sure both right and left are for democracy, both 1% and 99% are for it. Even an apologist for authoritarianism like me is for democracy. Didn't U.S. Supreme Court ruled money is free speech? and the 1% is not shy in exercising that democratic right. Didn't Egyptians exercised their democratic rights by electing Islamic Party to power and now exercise their non-democratic right by overthrowing it? And the rule of law. Manning and Snowden seem to violated it and is or will suffer the consequences, while Bush and Cheney caused hundreds of thousands of maimed under false pretenses and are free of any consequences. Such big words to club anyone over the head.
