A Monarchist Version of Functional Libertarianism

Would YOU Sign the Declaration of Independence?

This is one source of our current troubles--a utopian experiment that led to the central-state-empowering Constitution, to democracy and to the abolition of monarchies, to the Civil War and greater centralism, to American entry into WWI, to the punitive Treaty of Versailles, and thus to the rise of German nationalism and Hitler and WWII, tens of millions dead and the Holocaust, nuclear bombings of Japan, the Cold War, etc.

No thanks. Give me back the modest taxes under King George III, and rule from over the Atlantic.

The young Fogey adds: BTW good George III didn’t cause the grievances of some colonists; Parliament did.

For these reasons I am tending towards support of our joining the Commonwealth of English-Speaking Nations, under the nominal rule of Her Majesty the Queen.
