Off-Topic Discussion / Re: Why Isn't the US a monarchy?
« Last post by gerrit70 on 4 May 2020, 11:27:50 PM »
So I was re-reading The Spirit of the Laws by Montesquieu, which the American government is very much based upon, and he does not directly endorse that an executive should be elected; even going as far as saying that liberty can be achieved under a monarchy.

Seeing the recent loss of Sanders in the primary, the american people clearly do not know what is best for them. So, why do they have direct control over the president? An ideal system may be to have a hereditary monarchy in which the judicial and legislative branch retain their function and power. Including the ability to impeach the executive, given a significant majority, and except for enacting short term limits on the legislative branch. The only problem I can see with this is the pretty direct control the executive would have over the judicial branch, which could be mitigated by having judges appointed by the senate, or be directly elected.

Thoughts?
lol. the american people know sanders is definitely not what's best for them. that's a good thing. sanders was a terrible candidate, better than biden, but still terrible. they don't necessarily have direct control over the president, we have the electoral college bruh. the reason the us wasn't made a monarchy is because it was founded under the principle of freedom and democracy after their natural rights were stepped on by the british, so why would they want another monarchy?

The president is still directly elected, the vote distribution weight and between areas does not change that. The useless idealoguing that your post contains does not even address any of the concepts in my post; can freedom and democracy not exist under a constitutional monarchy?

also your whole "people can't decide what's best for them" is what Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, and many other dictators said as well so...yeah

This is particularly hilarious because its such a weak point. This essentially equates to: "Well Hitler is bad and Hitler was elected, so therefore democracy is bad." Do you see how dumb that sounds?

And then for Instrumentals I've been listening to:

Hollow Knight OST
Borderlands 2 OST
Stardew Valley OST
Dark Souls 3 OST
Terraria OST
Elder Scrolls V OST
Stardew Valley has one of the best soundtracks ever.
Gris and Journey also have fantastic soundtracks.
Never played Gris, but I listen to the soundtrack occasionally. Same with Journey.
