Just 15% of 2,000 people polled by academics from Benghazi and Oxford universities said democracy should be installed in the next year.
More than 40% backed strong leadership from one person or a group.
However, almost a third of those polled said they would like a democratic government in five years' time.
Despite the majority saying they wanted to see a firm hand in control, 69% also said they believed ordinary citizens should have a say in how Libya develops.
And some 16% of people said they were prepared to resort to violence for political ends.

“democracy” and its infrastructure are Christian english concepts. Its easy for them to parrot the words but to understand? Uh - uh. Totally contrary to their muslim beliefs. Antithetical.
So , Obama’s lies about spending American dollars in promoting the Arab Spring and equating that to democracy was only hogwash. All the backing to the MB. All they want is a dick tater. The experts knew this going in.
So, who’s plans did Gadaffi not fit into?
Worst part, who’s plans in the White House did Gadaffi not fit into?
I wonder, what does the Ghazi in the White House have in store for us?

And they aren’t keen on anyone else’s democracy either.

Maybe they’re smart enough to know that democracy is just mob rule. Ask them about a representative republic, after explaining the concept.
They’ll probably choose Sharia anyway...

We're also going to try to replace some of our older servers and failing equipment this year so we're going to add a little extra to our FReepathon goals. John is estimating ten to fifteen thousand to do this and I'd like to get it all in place and working before the election cycle is fully heated up, so we'll try to bring in a little more now if we can and the rest next quarter.
