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.

Poor NotBot: as always, never the quote he needs, so he has to make them up.
Numerous times in the past you have been told that Britain is a Constitutional monarchy which you claim is false because we do not have one physical Constitution.

The only person making up stuff is you - excuses - rather than dealing with the substance of my posts.

Right. So while we must provide thorough research and evidence for our arguments, you are at liberties to provide nothing for yours other than assertions, ad homs and the odd dictionary definition (because dictionaries dictate reality for reasons known only to you).

So, we act like adults, and you act like a child.

Yes, I agree; that is all you are required to do as that is all you are capable of actually doing.

SupaAFC: two politics degrees.

Barefoot: no politics degrees.

That is why your "debate" with me about British politics has been so uneven and I routinely get you frustrated all the time. I am actually educated in what I speak about; you, evidently, are not.

<quoted text>Poor SuperFAG: stuck making up his own quotes and his own definitions.
Nope, it's cited right in your own pastejob in definition 1.

If Britain is a monarchy then our Queen should be making laws. But she doesn't, because that is the role of the Commons.

The Commons are democractically elected.

Conclusion: Britain is a Parliamentary democracy with a figurehead monarch.

Conclusion: Barefoot is flat out wrong.

Prove me wrong, manchild: show our monarchy in action - preferably in my lifetime.

You don't move them, you simply abandon them when you cannot find a tidbit in the person's posts to latch onto.

Case in point: Macmillan being a democratically-elected MP which made a mockery of your claim that he was an unelected Prime Minister.

Your best response has simply been that you do not care about Britain having a Parliament. You also flat-out ran away from defining democracy despite being asked to so that we could establish what counts as a democratic state.

<quoted text>pointing out the FACT that MOST of the members of the UK Parliament are APPOINTED by the monarchy is just another straw in the camel's back.
If those appointed members actually did anything of substance that affects our political system. Unfortunately for you, they don't.

Does the United KING_dom have a constitution, yes or no?

And you make one up.

In actual fact: my posts are replete qith quotes.

I would say "exact quotes"- because you don't seem to understand what a quote means, and you think that a quote means that you got most of the words in there right.

All quotes- actually- are verbatim.

And that is why when you refer to something you think I mostly said... you don't use them.

Of course, I never ever said that Macmillan was not democratically elected as an MP.

Gosh, you cannot put two sentences together without lying.

You asked for an example of PM who was elected BY HIS PARTY to be *nominated* as PM which- as I pointed out to you- the Queen could consider and then APPOINT the PM to that office... if she felt like it.

You insisted that PMs were all elected and that the monarch HAD to make the "appointment".

I had to inform you that he was NOT elected by his party, i.e., I stuck my foot up your azz yet again.

That indeed the Queen asked for advice on who should be appointed PM and that there was NO election.

And I informed you- you who claims to hold two..."political" degrees... at which point you said er um hmm err... ummm... give me TWO examples...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAH

Review:

Macmillan was not elected by his party to be nominated for PM.

Review:
The monarch is not compelled to take any nomination or advice given in her APPOINTMENT of that office.

PS: You still haven't proved the name of the university and the year you got these "political degrees".

We've establish that, of course.

If the appointed members of the UK Parliament were unable to do anything of substance, then there would not be a House of Lords.

The is a House of Lords.

Sometimes twelve definitions in a row, taking them in order as they appear one after the next complete with links and EXACT quotes.

Is the United KING_dom a monarchy...YES OR NO?

How many definitions do you need?

Have you EVER found a link (ONE) that refute the FACT that the United KING_dom is a monarchy?

Nope.

In a democracy, everyone has equal access to power. If you are born into the "office" of monarch- you are delegated as HEAD OF STATE- and no one else has this access, than you do not live in a democracy.

That is what is meant by NOMINAL head of state, which I have posted many dozens of times.

If the USA declared that you were the head of state, the king, and that 'office' would be passed down from you to your son (or daughter) forever, if the only thing you did (as king) was to throw out the first ball of the first game of the baseball season: the USA would not be a democracy any more.

No matter how many times you spam the board.

PS: the monarch in the UK nominates the PM, sings off on all new laws, declares wars, and has the power, no matter how hard SuperFAG & et al. stomp their feet: to dismiss the elected government.
