Here's my opinion about what happened. FPM was big a scam that used the struggle and passion of thousands of people to get few individuals into power. Here's why:

1) The secular speech was replaced by the sectarian speech to get more votes and support in specific areas. "إذا تكلمت طائفيا فانبذوني".

2) The fight against corruption never started because they became part of the game and had a share of the cake.

3) Like everywhere else, they turned a political party into a family business, his sons-in-law are in power. They also got people inside the party for their financial power and investments.

4) G. Aoun failed in creating a political part with structure and democracy. Gebran Bassil was appointed and not elected.

Some people accused me of changing my political views, while in fact, it's the political party that I supported that change. I am still holding to the same principles of secularism, freedom, independence, fighting corruption, and building a civil state.
