She travels the world at her age representing our country, where most people her age are in retirement homes living out their final years in
When you look at her visits and see the happiness in the crowds who have come to see her you realise how much joy she brings to people just by her
Not everybody agrees with it, but the majority of the country, in my opinion, wouldn't as much of a proud nation as it is without someone who
symbolises us for who we are, the United "Kingdom".
I had a look for some links for you, and I found this article which seems to look at it from both angles, there is a lot of for and against stuff out
there, so a two way opinion is probably the best (and not a bad read either)
Wow, blind patriotism and royalty-love really makes you blind to reality as well doesn't it.
"She does a lot of things, just research it!!" Like what? "Well, you know, she brings hope and we're proud of her as our leader, and, ehm, she
uses our hard earned money to go on vacation, errrr she represents our country, that's it!"
But all right, here we go;
Why does she make you proud of "where we come from"?? Do you know where you come from? Planet earth, welcome to the human race buddy. Why people
worship rock stars? Because they're as deluded as you are, only THEY choose to spend their money on their worshipping instead of having it taken from
them either way. There is NOTHING that makes them special, they are just like you and me, except for the fact that some people need other people to
look up to to compensate for what they themselves couldn't accomplish, and thus, making those people appear to be better, or more than what they
truly are. Fail at life? Look up to someone who seems to be doing lots better than you, hurray! Either that, or you accept the fact that you're
important in your own way and are the center of your own reality just like someone else is of theirs. I don't need to worship anyone to be happy,
I'm my own God.
What kind of argument is it to compare her to old people in retirement homes? Do old people in retirement homes have fortunes sitting under their
asses? Do they live in a palace? Do they have the money to go to all those countries she goes to? Lmfao, straw man.
I don't care how happy the crowd is, some crowds go crazy when Justin Bieber blows a kiss at them, do you think that means he truly is an amazing
human being? Haha, the happy ones are all equally deluded, royalty adds nothing a country, I can know, I live in a monarchy myself, my royals go on
holidays too and they call it "representing the country" as well. I don't know to who they are representing it, perhaps to the poolboy, the
gardener, the maid and the waitresses in their vacation homes, but otherwise, we're represented by our politicians and representatives, our
celebrities, our national heroes,...
And you know, patriotism in itself is bad enough, but why on earth do you think you need a person to symbolize your nation when a flag does just fine
for other people? A flag doesn't spend millions of tax money on a birthday party nor does it require diamond encrusted shoes and a ten thousand pound
hairdo to make a public appearance.
I look forward to your reply, as your love for royalty will undoubtedly produce something worth reading, even if it's just for laughs over this
