A Constitutional Monarchist's Lament

Monarchist judges Founding Fathers mistaken in their efforts

Politics is a funny game and usually there is a great deal of obfuscation and mis-direction at play when different sides espouse the fundamental ideology that animates their arguments and mission. That's true everywhere, but it's especially true in the USA for several good reasons:

  • The two party system - Each of America's primary parties serve the function of aggregating a very diverse collection of political beliefs held by different (often competing) special interests.
  • The truth hurts - The true beliefs held by these two parties, and the various minor political parties (Libertarian, Communist, etc.) rub people the wrong way so telling it straight makes it a lot harder to win elections.
  • It's easy to lie - The news media and commentators in general are useless, ahistorical doormats who work in sycophantic and symbiotic collusion with the major political parties to maintain unchallenged order in the regime.

So it's rare, and refreshing, when someone comes right out and says it out loud for all the world to see (or read in this case) and that's exactly what Dylan Matthews did in his Vox.com article "3 reasons the American Revolution was a mistake." The reasons are wonderfully honest and compelling for the Vox.com readership and I recommend reading the entire thing to understand the mindset free Americans have been struggling with since the Revolution. This is what a Harvard College education ($60k per year) will get you - lamenting slavery, aboriginal genocide and republican government.
And parliamentary democracies are a lot, lot better than presidential ones. They're significantly less likely to collapse into dictatorship because they don't lead to irresolvable conflicts between, say, the president and the legislature. They lead to much less gridlock.
See, this young thinker believes we live in a presidential democracy - he's not even aware of the form of government he's living in, but even if he did he still wouldn't like it. He's a Constitutional Monarchist to the bone and like all of his brethren he would have been a loyal Tory in 1776 just as he is today.
Finally, we'd still likely be a monarchy, under the rule of Elizabeth II, and constitutional monarchy is the best system of government known to man.  
There you have it my fellow citizens - The modern Democrat party ideology in a nutshell. Republicanism is for the birds, like the bald eagle, who float on the wind of freedom, but for us who walk the earth - please give us back our King.

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
