A king instead of a president in US?
I think we should have a king instead of a president, Now you have policitians that do things to keep there jobs, instead of whats right. A king would stop senior cit from driving longer than they should, a king would kick out the Illegal aliens and give the work to the poor and unemployed. A king wouldnt let big oil tell him what to do. A king would not be scared off by congress or by anti-whatever groups. Its time someone does whats right instead of whats right to keep my job. What do u think?

This king you're talking about would have too much power. And how do you know that they would want to do all this?

You cant compare a king to a president, it all depends on who's appointed to look after all of us. Saudia arabia has a king everyone there is far from sane and happy.

Uh did you just come to us from the 1700s? We had a king before- sure he was overseas but technically we had a king- if you forgot he was a tyrant- hence the revolutionary war...

i would stay with a president cause a king has all power and can do crazy things like tortures or some shit a president has limited power its not about president or king its about WHO IS president or king

England has a Queen and they have tons of illegals, the Queen bows to Parliament. Try another example....this one was too easy to debunk.

yeah i do believe the constitution of america has an article that does not allow a monarchy in the united states. so this idea or dream of yours would have to be put as an admendment in our DEMOCRATIC constitution.

Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. It would only be a matter of time when the king would turn into a tyrant.
Answered By: Martini61 - 6/13/2008
Take for example the Queen of England, what power does she have? Zero. She is just a symbolic figure with a fat pay cheque, similar to our president.

One of the points our country's founders made was that when an individual can take a country to war, it's a tyranny. We've had that and a lot more; having a king wouldn't improve the situation, it would (if possible) make it worse.

George Bush is generally known in the UK as a King / President so the change would seem to be superfluous.

King=Dictator. I bet you'd feel pretty stupid if we had another Hitler on our hands. Oh wait... we do. But he's almost out of office.

Constitutional monarchies have worked for countries like Britain and Japan (mostly).
Answered By: Deuce - 6/13/2008
It was the heavy-handedness of the English monarchy that caused the American revolution in the first place. If a ruler is all-powerful, there's no guarantee that he or she would be benevolent to the subjects. After all, it's good to be the king... More
