Correction, she and the entire royal family have absolutely NO pull/say/grip over the way Canada governs herself.
Again, that's technically not true. The Governor General is the Queens representative and holds the most power in Canada. But as mentioned, the power
is never exercised, but that does not mean it does not exist.
When I read stuff about monarchy (any monarchy), I can't help but think these people are just playing. They can't possibly think they have some kind
of divine right to have power over others, can they? They're just playing like they believe it, to impress the people and get their support, to
perpetuate their way of life. (Yeah, kind of like politicians do.)
You weren't lying in the OP claiming ignorance.
The Royals are the Royals because they have maintained power for hundreds of years and the blood line has been the same for that entire time.
Now, as usual what I am about to say is going to offend people, but it's the truth. It's a fairly tale that were all created "equal", to believe
that is intentional ignorance. It's just a fact of life that some people will never be productive members of societies. Most people do not have the
capacity to manage a group of people, or their funds and assets, and proven through history the "masses" are completely controllable, ignorant
heaps. "Gods and Clods if you will." Some people are just born to be clods, have no aspirations or dreams, and serve no purpose to humanity.
So if we go back hundreds of years and we see that a set of royals was able to seize power, and keep it for hundreds of years, whether you agree with
their policies or not - they must be smarter than a hell of a lot of people.
It really annoys me when I see people on this forum, pretending that they are some how equal to the powers. The PTB are the cleverest people on earth
apparently, since they control it, and have controlled it for centuries.
Don't confuse my statements for condoning their policies, cause I don't. But when you look at how they have manipulated the world into building them
empires, and at the same time ponzi'ing all of our money out of us - they're brilliant. A lot smarter than the masses, whether you agree with them
People sit here and claim that these people are no better, but then the same people are busy gobbling up the mainstream propaganda and falling for the
same tricks these guys have been using for hundreds of years to manipulate the masses. How are they not supposed to think your stupid? When you
continually illustrate your ignorance?
And to really get the flame train rolling on king, if you take a moment to put yourself in their shoes and see how they have have raped the people for
hundreds of years. It's plain to see how they have come to have the attitude that they have of humanity. A bunch of ignorant, lazy, stupid people is
all the masses are to them. And I can see why, every single time I turn on the news.
EDIT TO ADD: And anyone who believes that the Royal Family doesn't have power is out of their mind. The queen is the top of the pyramid, at worst
shes surrounded by a few others at the very top. But ultimately, she's still the top. She very well could be technically the most powerful person on
