    The current form of government in the Untied states is the oldest concurent government in the world (meaning that while individual countries have continued on, the type of government they have had changed in the last 200+ years).
    You may also mention that the Greek form of government was a "Demos" style government and while they didn't call it democracy in 500 B.C., that's where the word "democracy" came from. Demos meaning people, it was in fact a government run "by the people, for the people". With democracy dating back to 500 B.C., I'm sure it can "hold up".

    However, I'd prefer a monarchy. Reasoning for this was given by Vegeta within the first page of the thread. I still say that if a boy's father is a quarterback, the boy will probably make a great quarterback himself. Likewise, if a boy's father is king, he will likely make a great king.

    As the king does, so does the people.

    What if the son doesn't make a great king? What if he's nothing more then a glorified tyrant? What then? Histories of kingships is filled with them. One king was truly a great and noble monarch, yet his son's were moronic patsy's that ruined the kingdom. however the king acts, so do most of the subjects. If you have a good king then the kingdom is good. If you have poor (or evil, if you will) king then the kingdom is poor.

    The founding fathers recognized the dangers of the monarchy. It is why we have our system of government today. Instead, they wanted a form of government where the government was answerable to the people (outside of utter rebellion) and where the people themselves could serve the government. You can't get that in a monarchy. In a true monarchy, the people are there to serve the government and king. If the king respects the people, all is well. If the king does not...In a democratic republic like our own, we have the power to remove the 'bad' kings and keep the 'good' kings every election cycle. you or correct, some senators sons have been great senators themselves. If they are good, I'll vote them back into office (and some of our senators have had longer reigns then most kings did) if they are not I'm glad I have the freedom to vote them out of office.

    No, I am very glad that the founding fathers had the the wisdom and understanding to avoid the pitfalls of a monarchy. Instead of our freedoms being dependant on the mood of a man, our freedoms are guarenteed...even to the point the government cannot take them from us (itleast in theory).

    I would have no government. I would go off on my own to the very farthest reaches of Siberia... And raise reindeer. And live in a log cabin ... J/K

    If our system of governmet were a monarchy one, we the people wouldn't have all the rights that we enjoy and have today thanks to our fathers the founder of this country they saw how Europe was struggling under a monarchy rule, so they came up and decided to create a government were the people would rule as a nation and so the born of a democratic gov't were the poeple could choose their representatives in government and thus the born of United States Of America.

    If I had a choice I'd choose neither.

    Then what would you choose if you have no form of government you have chaos no one would folo anything and ppl would be so selfish that they would do anything just to have something. So having no government would be chaos!

    Not in my world! All I would have to deal with would be my reindeer. And the cold ... Siberia gets quite frigid. There would be no people to cause chaos. Seriously... I would be a hermit. But then in that case I suppose I would be a dictator - A dictator of reindeer! Muwwaaahaaa!
