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.

Americans threw them out in 1776, and threw them out again in 1812.
All of Great Britain can fit in one of our states- as a matter of fact, Packy, ELEVEN of our states are larger.
The United Kingdom is **LUCKY** to have an ally like the USA.
We saved "your" azzes out of two life or death jams.
We certainly don't need you.
You have a strange version of history, America got their assess kicked out of Canada by Britain, Britain invaded America and burned your capitol city, Britain blocaded your country, disrespected your sailors, laughed at your face and bqnkrupted your country, America got a whole lot of whoopass from Britain, that's what happens when you hopelessy attempt to invad a British colony, you made the mistake of thinking that Britain wouldn't defend Canada, you were wrong. And as for the two world wars, I think everyone knows what a minor role America played in both, Britain, Canada, Australia and France won world war one, Britain, Canada, Russia won world war two, if you want to have some victories, then go and make them for yourselves, but as we've all seen, America aren't capable, and even would have list 1776, in their own territory, if it wasn't for France and for Britain fighting in another 11 wars at the same time LOL, that's the difference between a real superpower, like Britain was, and a regional power, allready on the way out, like USA, how do you think historians in five hundred years will rate the achievments and power of Britain and America, Britain, like Rome, will forever be immortalised as the greatest nation in history, America won't even be remembered by anybody, except as a small part of the great British empire, and even you, with all your bluster, in your heart you know this is true

Or how about numbers of deaths, many more Americans were killed than brits, even thoe America had many many more troops, you still got your assess kicked by a smaller British contingent, in your own country, how long did it take for the American army to run all the way from Canada back to USA, you are used to retreating thoe, aren't you

The war of 1812 was a good thing in the end, ot unified Canada, with the English, English Canadians and French Canadians and natives, it gave them a sense of identity and nationhood which they didn't previously have, they became Canada, a unique and proud country, a British parliamentary democracy, with the queen as head of state, and a valued member of the British commonwealth, they are a prosperous and liberal nation, secular, athiest, modern, democratic, national healthcare, all the british ideals, plentifull natural resources, good economy, they are very thankfull for this and for britain defending them, that is why life is much better in Canada than anerica, the people loyal to britain were right, and why Canada is great, America would be too if they had stayed loyal to Britain, it was your mistake, and now you can only look enviously at canada and dream of what could have been, America could have been liberal, free, safe and prosperous like canada, but you chose the wrong way, you made that mistake, and you tried to make Canada join you, but they knew better and are now much happier and prosperous, USA made the mistake, now you live with it

I use facts based on reality, Packy, you don't.

Forgive me if I put little effort into it.

I wonder what will be the outcome if there is a referendum in 2016? It seems to me that Unionists have the majority at the moment but things may change. The republic may recover to pre crash times making more financial sense for the North going more Nationalist
Anyone who thinks he's got a handle on Irish politics (North or South) is nuts.

It isn't out of context to call a monarchy a monarchy.
If you were just calling our monarchy a monarchy, then that would be perfectly fine.

But, you are not just calling our monarchy a monarchy; you are claiming that because we are a monarchy, then we are therefore not a democracy - a totally bogus claim.

That is why your whole argument about Britain's monarchy is inherently dishonest.

Your excuses are typical of a NotBot who finds my foot up their azzes when they say something stupid like the same definition in the English language from a dozen different sources doesn't mean what it means.
Definitions are meaningless when reality contradicts them. If Britain were truly a monarchy, then our monarchs would be actively involved in our political system, the people would have no say in the government, and the monarchs would be wielding their powers on a regular basis.

Reality: our monarchs do nothing.

Reality: Royal Assent has not been refused since 1707.

Reality: we have a Parliament.

Reality: the Commons, the legislative body of Parliament, are elected by the people.

Reality: we are a democracy.

Face reality, little boy.

Ah... so after three months, SuperFAG acknowledges that the sun rises in the east, sets in the west, and that the United KING_dom is a monarchy.

Let's check Barefoot's position on this... oh... it seems that is the very first thing he said on the topic...

More members of the UK Parliament have been appointed (or inherited to that position by a monarchy) than elected.

No matter how hard you stomp your feet.

And the Parliament can be- by law- dismissed by the monarch. For whatever reason he/she feels fit.

PS: the Church of England also appoints members to the Parliament.

You have a right to your off-based opinions.

You do not have aright to your own facts.
