July 16, Kansas City Star Letter to the Editor

Brownback, Morsi

There are striking similarities between ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback.

The election bids of both men were supported by religious fundamentalists. They were democratically elected but immediately began grabbing for more power. Rather than governance through popular participation, an antimodern tyranny of the majority began to unfold.

Morsi dissolved Egypt’s Supreme Court. Brownback pushed through legislation giving him the power to handpick Kansas appellate judges. His next target — the state Supreme Court.

Morsi refused to compromise; Brownback purged his own party of moderates. Egypt was bankrupt by June; Brownback has blown a giant hole in Kansas’ budget.

The Egyptian people reacted angrily when they saw their newly minted democracy being replaced by a theocracy.

We’ll know 16 months from now which form of government Kansans prefer.
