Now as an ageing adult who's seen it since I can honestly see where the Yanks got rid of our royalty. Shame can't manage it
We did get rid of The Monarchy between 1649-1660, before the Yanks even.
However we didn't like being a republic ( Commonwealth Of England ) so Parliament asked The Monarchy to return.
Errr............................ You make a very good point there ADL and I forgot about that brief experiment with democracy At the same time
when you refer to "we" one has to see that us commoners never really had any say in it, I mean the average man in the fields or mills wasn't exactly
part of the planned rebellion etc
The Brits would be insane to ditch the monarchy. I am half Greek half American and though that should suggest I would be big on democracy, I aint. I'm
fact it's a sha!e your monarch's power is so limited.
We read about a bunch of studies in cpllege where they took the highest quality of I've civilizations for the last 3500 years to see what things Egypt
3500 years ago, Benelux during the enlightenment, Sweden or Norway up until ten years ago, and everything in between and it wasn't compulsory
education, it wasn't running water, it wasn't access to medicine...the one absolute that they all share is monarchy. And I don't think it's
It's the very problem in America today. It will just never be possible to hand people 're!piracy power and expect so!e of them won't sell out or rape
the nation and their resources to better their lives after they get out. I mean, what was agreed to be the greatest nation the world had yet seen, the
United States, is dreading having to admit it but you gotta face reality. Since 1931 when the economy itself was sold to the highest bidder, the door
to central banking on a system of fractional reserve lending, aka the most evil corrupt disgusting and hopeless thing on earth sent us spiraling
toward failure and for the last four or five decades we have seen the democratically elected representatives one after another become the !pat
depraved criminals no matter how saintly they seem entering politics.
And so here we are, a.country of such wealth and power...so rich we don't blink when 21 trillion goes unaccounted for in one session of Congress...a
thousand times richer than country#2. And are we living that way? Nope. Indistinguishable if not looking like the lesser country to Norway or Denmark.
That tells you about the kind of !money we are talking about the democracy and its reps raping from us. Or look at the incarcwrations. Not only are we
doing the most sick and barbaric sign of an uncivilized society and incarcerating substance abuse, victimless crime, and with e!harassing puniahments,
but overcro!finalization is just impossible to fix now and it would take the fall of the U.S. At this point to scale down government reach.
Why are these things so easy to do here? Because the countries positions, even the very highest, are temporary situations which in no way give a sense
of ownership to its responsibilities which is a big deterrent of reckless behavior. The point of a monarch is the one how we would need to survive
this but alas we don't have one like the UK can put its hopes in when the NOW comes a knockin. The !monarch acts under the very delicate reality of
the nation being the family legacy, the king or queens previous tea and beloved subjects who in return are the only source giving their power
validation. Each move made risks losing the throne or strengthens their place on it so if things reached the level of failure and corruption the U.S.
Is in the process of being destroyed and eaten from the inside out as all its rotten porous holes left by 100 years of 4 year opportunists give way.
This is exactly when a monarch needs to step in and say, "no!" We will preserve a!erica culture, the people will not have another 1 00 years enslaved
by central banking, and if I don't step in now them even should the nation survive, my dynasty will be humiliated and I will be the complicit one who
stood by. In fact, I have nearly piled my hair out these last ten years when I would expect the queen to say enough is enough so many times for !any
things but she stays quiet. I have a feeling of not for the hostile attitude of a third of the nation to the royal family and the many ways it !makes
it terrifying for the queen to flex any muscle at all outside being a ribbon cutter, she would have spoken up by now and has wished she could but
idiots would have seen her head roll for it.
Your monarch is NOT an obstacle Brits, Canadians, Australians, NZers, Bahamians, and so on. The monarch is your asset and if allowed to be so, your
savior in theory when your desperate hour is at hand...stop seeing it as something behind the other nations, everything in history and in theory says
it is part of the best societies.
