The US Constitution is literally ancestor worship anon, the same as Japanese Shinto.

In order to practice proper representative democracy you need a concept such as Parliamentary Sovereignty where dead men can't bind their successors and take away the freedom of the living.

Nice try, limey. Keep your tea drinking ways outta my country

This is not a very good defence of worshipping ghosts.

Read about Whigs on Wikipedia.

My allowing the sovereign to become the creature of parliament, you have allowed the poisonous influence of party politics to infect the very essence of your national being.
>>
>>605910
He has a point, the Constitution was a jury-rig put together because the Articles sucked so hard and they thought we'd have a new one hashed out in a century or so.

>By allowing the sovereign to become the creature of parliament, you have allowed party-politics to infect your nationality.

What?
>>
>>608404
He's just buying in to the whole "monarchy is cool because it allows the focus of nationality to exist outside politics" meme. If he weren't he probably would have brought up the Magna Carta instead of the Glorious Revolution.
>>
>>605910
He isn't exactly wrong anon.

>>608404

Your so-called prime ministers are beholden first to their colleagues in parliament, as Jeremy Corbyn is finding out as opposition leader. No amount of public support will save him. In a system where the executive is also required to be the strongman of parliament, no true tribune of the people can emerge. This is why the American system of selecting a sovereign is superior.
>>
>>608429
America doesn't have a sovereign and the PM of England is not its sovereign.
>>
>>608441

The PM exercises executive power - all the monarch's power has been sucked away. In the US the president, in practice, fills the role of a sovereign. He directs the machinery of the state in accordance with the law.
>>
>>608449
Sorry I was interpreting sovereignty as the government as a whole (with the monarch a symbol of this, in England). You really shoulda just said chief executive.

Kek.

Pretty sure the President is the cheif executive, not the sovereign

Erdogan's shit is far better than every thing you'll ever have.

Pretty much this. It was hastily put together, and relied almost entirely on last-minute compromise in an effort to keep the country from imploding. None of the founding fathers thought it would last very long, and the only reason it has is because of hero worship and the weird notion that the founding fathers were infallible and created something perfect.

but they did.

Not even close.
