Yes, I keep taking exactly what you said and prove you wrong, at which point you change what you said and deny what you said the day previous. And then I show you the exact quote and how you changed exactly what you said, and you cry I am taking what you say literately and that I am only technically correct, and then you post yet another straw man.
Now you try to pretend "system of government" means... something other than "goverment".
HAHAAHAHAHAHAH!
Your quote-mine is of me denying that our system of government is a monarchy.

We have a physical monarchy. That is well known. What we do not have is a monarchy as a government. That is where our Parliament - with democratically elected lawmakers - come in.

Are you seriously trying to portray me as saying that our Queen does not exist?

You clearly do not understand analogies.
Clearly you don't play chess any better than you do play the forum.

Happy to prove you have a false analogy, you can keep it in your closet full of straw mans.

Seems every time I poke my head in the door of this thread, you guys are still engaging in the same boring, pointless, and trivial argument. I can't help but wonder why anyone stays. I'll keep looking in from time to time, though, just in case someone writes something of interest. Bye again for now...

You can add this to your other cut and paste, Meatball.

You know... that Sweden isn't a monarchy, and the Vatican isn't a country.

Once again, let's zoom in:
"If Britain is a monarchy..."
Closer:
"is a monarchy..."
Ever closer:
"IS"
How sad for Aunt Sally.

Now defining "is-is".

Poor SuperFAG. He forgot he already denied Britian had a monarchy.

Let's see..
SuperFAG writes...
"If Britain is a monarchy then the Queen should have legislative powers.

She does not.

Thus, Britain's system of government is not a monarchy. "

Now let's all watch as SuperFAG flips and flops and tries to say what he said exactly doesn't mean exactly what he said...

Popcorn, anyone?
