Why would it be so bad if we had like a King instead of a President?

I really don't understand what would be so bad about changing our style of government in other words.

  • A king is forever, you have NO choice who your king is, his corrupt crappy son could be the next king. Presidents are chosen by the people and if hes doing a suck as* job we can boot him in 4 years!

  • Not only does a King rule for their life time and you don't get to choose him etc

    But there is no one else ruling except the King. In America the President actually has very limited power because everything has to go through Congress first. That's a lot more people deciding what is going to happen to our country, vs one man deciding everything and no one can do anything about it (unless you are brave enough to try to murder him).

  • what difference would it make...we don't even elect our president...the electoral college does...and as for the monarchy, the king/queen is more of a symbol...there is still government, parliament

  • Then we couldn't get rid of the bastard when he gets all nuts like they all do in power after a few years. You need to have them on their toes and doing what they can for the people so they keep their job.

  • It is called a system of checks and balances. If there is a King then there is no balance.
