A Constitutional Monarchy for America?

This, you've got to see...

So, there's this dude from Denver CO, Bob Enyart, who has his own (extreme fundamentalist) radio show and is pastor of the Denver Bible Church (http://denverbiblechurch.org/enyart.html).  He's a dangerous guy; I've had my own personal dealings with him years ago. 

Well, he proposes that the United States should do away with its present form of government and its current Constitution and become a Constitutional Monarchy.  He offers a draft of his proposed "constitution" under this new Shadow Government.

Oh, and this is NOT A JOKE.

That's not a constituational monarchy, that's a dictatorship.

 

Canada is a a constituational monarchy. This would be nothing like it.

You should let him know then.  He has a live call-in radio show.  I'm sure he would love to debate the semantics.  www.kgov.com

After reading his arguments

After reading his arguments against our current form of government, it's clear that he doesn't actually understand how it works.

So, it seems highly unlikely that he would be able to suggest even a functioning replacement, much less a better one.

Great, so now we can be like

Great, so now we can be like Israel was in the Old Testament stories, a monarchy governed by "god".  A better form of government would be a benevolent dictatorship, but that's just my personal opinion.  The only problem is finding a benevolent dictator.

Agreed. Though a large number of christians think we have one.

It can be argued that in a way, the bushs represent a limited monarchy already

argh

Bush has already taken too many liberties away from us.  I'm just dreading the day when they try to implant the radio chips inside of all of us.  When that day comes, I'm leaving the US, period.

Bush isn't trying to be a Constitutional monarch, he's trying to be an absolute one.
