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.

Prove me wrong by showing the world our Queen making her own laws, ignoring Parliament, and enforcing it on her people.

That is how governments work. That is how a monarchy would work.

You did not say yes or no. You subverted the question by giving an actual explanation outwith the options you had to answer it.

We too have answered your question by the same method. You simply repeat the question demanding that we answer yes or no - no explanations are accepted.

The gesture is returned and you say you have already answered the question.

It is hypocrisy, manchild, and you know it.

Then your question regarding the UK being a monarchy is also a strawman.

Manchild logic, manchild fail.

And he can still not define democracy.

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.

Nobody, despite your continual spin, denies that Britain has a monarchy. Or that it has "powers". Or that the monarch is our head of state.

Is the United KING_dom a monarhcy, yes or no?

Funny how you can't find a definition of monarchy that insists monarchs had to have legislative powers.

Putting aside the UK monarchy has to approve of laws passed by the Parliament... most of who are not elected into office.

Maybe the fact that Queen Elizabeth could close down Parliament on her say so after tea is enough.

Poor baby.
Yet when we play the same game by showing you the Constitution clearly stating that the Electoral College elect the president you shout it down and point to presidential elections.

I have literally lost count with the amount of times you blatantly display double standards.

"Kinds" do not exist in your world. You have made it painstakingly clear for months that you literally believe that there are absolutist, yes-or-no scenarios where things are either in one camp or the other.

You have been quoted as saying as such plenty of times. You have been quoted as saying that absolute and elective are "kinds" of monarchies, but a Constitutional monarchy "is" a monarchy.

The fact is, manchild, that you change your arguments to suit your circumstances and willingly contradict them if need be.

I am going for the third option, manchild.

Over 300 years and counting, manchild.

In Barefootland, England did not win the 1966 soccer World Cup until the Queen awarded Bobby Moore the trophy up the Wembley steps.

If the monarch's role were ceremonial, the monarch would not be appointing PMs, and the monarch would not have the power to shut down the Parliament.
But we all know you have problems with the English languauge.
Like when you insisted 'unanimously' meant 'almost everyone'.
Technically, according to what is written about that, the Queen does hold some authority but what she does exercise in practice, and has been the case for a long time is ceremonial. The government of all of the countries that she is the Monarch of, including Great Britain, are run by elected officials, and the PM is ceremonially chosen by the Queen, but in actuality he is the person who leads, in most cases at least, the governing party.

What I have read, which is kind of crazy and a bit scarey, is that theoretically she does hold power to overrule the government, but the present Queen has never used that authority, and I highly suspect (but am only guessing) that if she actually attempted to overrule the ruling government that they would do something that would quickly take that power from her.

I doubt that the majority of any citizens of any country in the British Commonwealth would sit back and allow the Queen to rule us. I understand from talking to people who were raised in England but came to Canada after they married, when I asked them why England puts up with having a Queen in this day and age, and the response was that it was good for tourism.
