Canada Monarchy or Republic?
Posted 28 February 2009 - 09:40 PM
Seems to be a busy night here on the forum so I decided to make a little poll although I am not sure how much play this one will get. This will probably more interesting for Canadians but please Americans are more than welcome to contribute. In light of the paper I am writing, the poll/thread is on the debate Republicanism or Monarchism in Canada. Republicanism, in short is the system that America runs on. Monarchism is the current way Canada governs and long story short, it is described by Canada sharing ties with England, including our Head of State being the Queen of England among other things. So I ask you, which do you think would be better for Canada and why?

If you guys were a true monarchy anyway.

lets be honest, I cant wait for a Canadian revolution. we can throw our hockey sticks and curling rocks at our prime minister untill he figures out that not only does everyone hate him. but he has no friends. and we dont want another tax increase on our hydro bills.
our PM just spent 2 days sucking up to Obama and got what out of it? nothing.
IMO: if your the leader of a country is becuase your a respresentation of the people of that country. meaning without the people paying you your dumb taxes you would not exist.
and yet its been flipped on us, now the PM gets all his cash and doesnt worry about the country.
I swear he goes around jabbering about his almighty plan to save us 5% on our water bills and then hikes our electricity bills by 10% without telling anyone.
