Make America Great Britain Again

Postby The British Galactic Empire » Wed May 04, 2016 11:06 am

It seems that the next President of the former colonies is going to be either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. Since those are two terrible, terrible choices, what if the Americans made Elizabeth II Queen of the United States?

Of course the US would not cease to be independent, but think of the advantages:

- No more political gridlock between the executive and the legislative branch, since Congress would also elect the Prime-Minister of the United States;
- No more Republican Party, since there is no longer a republic to defend;
- Think of all the money you would save if you did not hold presidential elections;
- A victory for progressivism, as Her Majesty would be the first woman to reign as a US Head of State;
- Congress would never elect Donald Trump as Prime-Minister.

I think I'd prefer your parliamentary system over our congressional system.

As much as I am for a Democratic Monarchy, I think electing a monarchy we throughout over 200 years ago would cause the founding fathers to roll in their graves simultaneously.

1. Make Elizabeth II Queen of United States.
2. Russia, seeing that there is no sensible leader for the USA anymore, drops nukes.
3. ???
4. Profit!

A nation focused around carriers and a strong navy and its airforce, as well as developed heavy industry. In incidents, tries to solve them diplomatically, militarily if no options are left.

As a Canadian, I think I can safely say that you Americans don't know what you are missing. No country has fought harder or longer than mine to not be independent. We would still be a colony if they would let us.

Well, and look at everything Canada has accomplished. The United States may be much more powerful, but Canada is a much better country to live in.

I'm a staunch republican so am all for the abolition of monarchy, but in this case I honestly think I could compromise on those values lol. I feel so scared for those poor Americans right now.

Throw in free new Doctor Who and I'll consider it.
Crimes committed by Muslims will be a pan-Islamic plot and proof of Islam's inherent evil. On the other hand crimes committed by non-Muslims will merely be the acts of loners who do not represent their belief system at all.
The probability of one's participation in homosexual acts is directly proportional to one's public disdain and disgust for homosexuals.
If a political figure makes an accusation of wrongdoing without evidence, odds are probable that the accuser or an associate thereof has in fact committed the very same act, possibly to a worse degree.

Many of the traitors founding fathers said that constitutions should be changed with every new generation. Maybe what this generation wants is the stability of the return of the Monarchy.

God save our gracious Queen! Long live our noble Queen! God save the Queen!

As an American, I can say with full confidence that I would heartily welcome it if Her Majesty was to accept her rule over the United States of America, and bring the country into the Commonwealth of Nations. It would also be a blessing if we were to inherit the Parliamentary system, and bring an end to the ridiculousness of the Presidential system.

People already freak out when they hear about countries outside Europe competing in the Eurovision, they'd lose their minds if the US basically joined the EU.

I thought Eurovision was a hot potato no country wants to be caught hosting. The U.S. would have a Spongebob glazed look happily hosting it until the end of humanity.

That statement in blue above seems to be misleading. The UK. had 13 former colonies which tended to huge the Atlantic coast. A larger portion of what is today the US was under the Spanish Monarchy. So would it not make more sense to bring in the current Spanish Bourbon Monarchy. :lol:

Haha, Eurovision is a guilty pleasure of mine. I wish I was actually in Europe so I could vote, though. I'm really bummed this year though since Romania got disqualified ;_;.
