In America, atheists are still in the closet

So do many other interest and identity groups. Complaint is our political lingua franca: it's what Occupiers, Tea Partiers, Wall Street titans, religious and irreligious people share.

Do you vote for who will be president?
I cast a vote for POTUS. Sometimes the person for whom I vote becomes president, sometimes he/she does not, that is how it works in a democracy.

In a monarchy, subjects have no say at all.

The UK is a monarchy, yes or no?

The actual fact is the UK (and the Allies) would have lost had it not been for the intervention of the USA.

Period.

The prime minister is elected, and then rubber stamped by the queen, its a traditional ceremonial, the queen has no choice, she approves whoever the people elect, that is her job, a rubber stamper

Fact unless Japan and Germany has not declared war on the US then the US would have continued profiting from both sides
The US was supporting the UK long before WWII was declared in spite of the the fact the US was supposedly "neutral".

Putting aside WWII in Europe was- and here is the tricky part- a European war which was a direct result of the previous European war, WWI.

You are such an idiot, the monarchy qppoint whoever the people elect, she can't just appoint anyone you test, can you imagine what would happen if she tried to do that, the monarchy would be disbanded and they would lose everything, in a democracy like britain tge role of the monarchy is to have pomp and ceremony and attract tourists, the monarchy were stripped of their powers centuries ago, now their role is to keep out of the way, keep their mouths shut, do as their told,and rubber stamp whoever the voters elect as prime minister, the monarchy are not even allowed to talk about politics, they have to be impartial, their role is purely ceremonial, I know you hate the fact that britain is more democratic and free than usa, but there's nothing you can do about it, is there.

You can't change facts, the fact is that the UK was winning the war without usa, and Britain would have still won without USA, germanys threat to Britain was defeated in the battle of britain, long before usa got involved, from the battle of Britain onwards it was militarilt impossible for Germany to invade britain, they didn't have the capability, juat like they didn't in russia, so world war two was being won long before America got involved and would have continued to do so without america, can you give me a possible scenario of how Germany could threaten britain, they couldn't, they didn't have the ability, or resources to invqde Britain, thats why they never did, after they lost the battle of Britain it was game over, germany were then powerless militarily to be a threat to Britain, and invading Russia ensured that germany would lose, so really you had no impact, at best you shortened the war by a little bit, but Britain and russiqs role was much bigger, greater and more important than Americas, you cant change facts my deluded friend

Your spelling errors make it hard for anyone to read a complete sentence and that is before they get to making a judgement re: content... besides laughing themselves silly thinking that you think you can call anyone else an idiot.

The monarch appoints the PM in the UK.

This is a fact.

The government of the UK exists at the behest of the monarch, not the other way around, no matter how hard you stomp your ignorant immigrant feet, Packy.

Now no one here is expecting you to say that you are wrong.

Germanys mistake was invading Russia, a country which any military tactician would say is beyond germanys capability to win, just as they were incapable of invading Britain, they were incapable of defeating Russia, having to fight Britain and Russia was an unwinable situation for Germany, invading Russia was a massive and irreversible mistake

And yet Hitler made no secret of his intention to roll into Russia in "Mein Kampf". Madness!

It would have taken Germany- on the outside- two months to run though England... as Patton would say... like sh!t though a goose.
