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.

The United States is a republic, not a democracy.

The most technical term, our country is a constitutionally limited representative democratic republic.

The federal republic (in the USA) is a kind of democracy.

The monarchy in the UK is a monarchy.

I proved this wrong, Skanque.

Why not start saying the first fully working military spec with red handles enigma machine captured?

"The monarch of the UK is much more powerful than the monarch of Sweden."

That's a range of monarchic power, and a range of what's a "monarchy".

Wanna talk about "Absolute Monarchies"? There still are a few.

You're out of your league, you absolutist infant.

What I said:

(quote)
"There is no middle ground, there is no range of choices."
(/quote)

What you claimed I said (and do notice the quote marks):
(quoted:)
A perfect example of the Excluded Middle fallacy - particularly amusing since you just admitted that there IS a "range of choices".

(/quote)

Now what is the difference between "there is no range of choices"

and what claimed I said:'there IS a "range of choices"'.

Class?

So, you've now at least twice admitted that there's a "range" of monarchies - whilst noisily claiming that all monarchies are the same.

Gottit.

Now, are all democracies the same?

Are all books the same?

Gradations, infant.

Ranges.

Scales.

Even all halfwits aren't the same.

So now you are down to "quoting" one word.

The shame is yours.

Babble.
Here you and your comrades arguing with barefoot over whether or not the UK is a monarchy. It has a Queen and a royal family, whose head is on the banknotes and coins?
Its a monarchy....get over it.
You Frankfurt School drop outs seem to be upset over the role of the Queen and yet there is N Korea which is an absolute monarchy and yet you have no problem with it.
BTW - I thought this thread was called 'In America, atheists are still in the closet'
And that they are because they are all cuckolds watching their wives with black men.
Nutter
So you have nothing of any value to say and so fall back on the good old christian incredulity from ignorance argument (not christian!!! honey I did not ask you what you rest on your chin (bollocks)). Thatís fine it tells us much of your personality and that your intelligence must fall in the mid range of double figures

Barfy butt face chooses to pick verbal fights on a PUBLIC thread, itís how he gets his jollies while his wife is out getting screwed, itís his method of relieving his sexual frustration. He has in the last 2 years had several opposers, including several Americans of whom one is Native American, Mexican, Polish, Swedish, South African, Japanese, Australian and British. He ignores evidence, he ignores fact, he provides outdated and irrelevant counters because he simply has not got the balls to admit that not everything is black or white, he is incapable of seeing the grey areas.

The point is that the British are not seeing this particular argument from the view of dubious American right wing text books and online blogs pandering to a specific intolerant audience but from actual LIFE experience.

Yet you my dear little sheepshagging dufus (remember that you began this by insulting me) have chosen to take his side in the argumentÖ thatís fine, your choice. But donít expect that anyone who is actually involved on the day to day politics of the UK and knows how politics works in the UK should roll over and show their belly just because you and barfy are a clueless morons.

Yes you sheepshagging dufus, thatís what we are arguing about - whether the UK is a monarchy or a monarchy. We all agree thatís itís a monarchy, yet barfy continues to claim that I donít, I have repeatedly shown him the posts that I agree, that I answer his yes/no question with an affirmative. We have a queen for fooks stake how can it be denied?. However that monarchy is a constitutional monarchy, itís not a dictatorship which is how barfy butt breath, from afar and infested with 3rd hand bile and spite, INTERPRETS the monarchy of the UK.

I see that you once again continue to jump in here without reading the thread. Your ignorance is becoming legendary, and it does not matter how republican you are, the queens influence in politics is minimal and falls into the realm of rubber stamping democratic decisions. Yes she can choose not to rubber stamp a democratic decision, she does however know better than that and it is an option that has not been taken during her reign. In fact I believe that the last time royal asset was refused was in 1707, almost 70 BEFORE the US became independent

Nope we are having fun with a dufus like yourself in the role the queen actually plays in politics and for you to assume without evidence (Yet another christian trait) that I have no problem with despotic dictatorships (or many other world situations) is really quite pathetically sad.

BTW What you thought is irrelevant particularly when you just think (and I use the term lightly) without the research, knowledge or education or intelligence to back that thinking up.
