America has a King, his name is Obama. By using Executive Orders which bypass the legislative and judicial branches of government, his wishes become Royal Decrees.

Contrary to all other posters here, I agree we should adopt a Monarchy.

It is clear that democracy is a failure, and the reason has been noted by almost all political theorist, including the founders of this republic, who, seeing that the uneducated mass, know, instinctively, not to give them any power.

The monarch, being almost completely divorced from the hoi polloi, would be the ideal ruler of any state, which explains the longevity of Monarchies, and its abundance.

That Monarchies come natural to man can be clearly shown by the fact that every civilisation, no matter how seperate they are, have adopted, in part, a form of monarchy, from Persia to Greece to China, where democracy is a taste unnaturally planted onto the soul.


You are the biggest dumb ass of all time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t5yQNpgeR8E



You believe in every single conspiracy theory that comes your way, from Bilderberg, to 9-11, to the Mason-Illuminati-NWO, to Obama Kenyan plan to deprive Americans of the ability to rid themselves faster, and spare Mother Earth of having to support those leeches and vermins.

If you are unable to argue, then do not respond, be quiet, and make yourself less of an annoyance to other, more intelligent people.

why diverge from the subject and ridicule someone instead of proving why monarchy's are actually beneficial for civilization.

Well lets see a Monarchy can make decisions without being marred in bureaucracy and legal processes.When something needs to be done or fixed they do not go through the process of voting or meeting with a committee, but instead their words become law and is absolute. I can definitely see how this can be beneficial during times of emergency. But in other cases you better hope that the ruler himself or herself is benevolent.

but the monarchy has to come from somewhere... a child would be born to rule over millions without any trust earned.
