Those who argue in favor of an American monarchy (and yes, there's a Royalist Party of America) believe that the only definite way of unifying our nation is by appointing an unbiased king or queen to represent us as head of state. I personally disagree with this as I think our Founding Fathers were morally against any sort of hereditary entitlement that such a system guarantees, but I can see why someone would rather be governed by a monarch and prime minister, especially when 50% of us loathe the president at any given time. What's your take on this?

I advocate Tsarism = holy commonwealth of government and church
ruled by God's Anointed Autocrat.

The secular perverted democratic USA is the world's last evil empire,
it will be destroyed and the Kingdom of God on earth will arise.

As soon as you can produce God so the rest of us can here it from God's own lips, assuming it has lips, then maybe I might agree.

My take is that both ideas are bereft of knowledge or either monarchies or parliamentary governance. First, as Britain can well attest, even a limited monarchy has little to any effect on national unity. Second, a prime minster can hold office with far less than a 50% approval rating depending on the coalition that is formed to create a majority in the parliament. Godwin's Law aside Hitler was able to come to power while receiving only 37% of the popular vote.

No thank you, I have no interest in seeing our country run by any one church.

The current system works fine. Congress isn't using its power.
