    Royalist Tea Party - A Monarchy for America?

     

    The Royalist Tea Party commits themselves to the establishment of a constitutional monarchy for the United States of America. They believe the second constitutional flaw that is ultimately responsible for this foul up, is this whole business of separation of powers where the executive and legislature are totally independent of each other. In a Parliamentary democracy, the Prime Minister cannot remain in office if he cannot command the support of the lower house, in the US the President can stay in office whether he has the support of Congress or not leading to a great political deficit, if the chief executive cannot even get Congress to support his proposals how can he get laws passed? Especially since he himself does not even have a seat in the house (which is of itself another shortsighted move). Clearly there must eventually be some political fallout from such a system. The simple fact is that the Westminster Model with its constitutional monarchy and its parliamentary structure has been proven as the most efficient of all forms of democracy that have been tried.

    The Royalist Tea Party is dedicated to the establishment of America’s constitutional monarchy. This would be good for the United States, as republics don’t work, and never will. The movement mobilizes for a leadership that is trusted by its people and works to serve them, not a particular group of interest. In order to attain this, it takes a leader who is not corrupted by politics. It is the wish of the movement members for America to remain an independent nation.

    The Royalist Tea Party is a group of patriots who want to see a new America that is free from corruption and concerned about the prosperity of its people. The movement pushes for a country with a leader who is ethical, moral and very courageous.

    The Royalist Tea Party also wants to see the United States join the Commonwealth of Nations. The Commonwealth of Nations is a voluntary association of 53 independent and sovereign states (one of whose membership is currently suspended). Most are former British colonies or dependencies of these colonies. The movement is creating awareness amongst Americans of the monarchy system of governance, how it works and its various benefits. It fights for a crowned republic like that of Australia, Norway and the United Kingdom, but not a full republic like what the U.S has today. The positions of head of state should be held by two different non-partisan individuals. By promoting the constitutional monarchy as the better form of government, the movement will be able to influence the perception of Americans about this form of government.

    The Royalist Tea Party has quoted Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson, he was a military commander. Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson, KB was a British flag officer famous for his service in the Royal Navy, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars.

    “I hate rebels, I hate traitors, I hate tyranny come from where it will. I have seen much of the world, and I have learnt from experience to hate and detest republics. There is nothing but tyranny & oppression, I have never known a good act done by a Republican, it is contrary to his character under the mask of Liberty. He is a tyrant, a many headed monster that devours your happiness and property. Nothing is free from this monster’s grasp. A republic has no affection for its subjects. A King may be ill advised and act wrong, a Republic never acts right, for a knot of villains support each other, and together they do what no single person dare attempt.” – Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson.

    The Royalist Tea Party has a National Platform and Policies:

    The monarchy system is better than America’s current political system of government. According to the Royalist Tea Party's website, “Clearly there must eventually be some political fallout from such a system. The simple fact is that the Westminster Model with its constitutional monarchy and its parliamentary structure has been proven as the most efficient of all forms of democracy that have been tried.”

    The Royalist Tea Party is optimistic of being successful in the future. It states in its website that, “Royalism, Loyalism and Toryism won’t sit well with most Americans today. But if we believe the Royalist Tea Party stands for what is true and good for this nation, we have no choice but to stretch out our necks and say what is right. We may not win over every American heart and mind right away, but we’ll fight for a good cause, and perhaps earn our countrymen’s respect. Once we can be respected, we can be admired; once we can be admired, we will find the support we need to bring the United States back to her roots."

    So, if you are sick of politicians who don’t care, the Royalist Tea Party is here! They, the membership of the Royalist Tea Party, commit themselves to the establishment of a constitutional monarchy for the United States of America. It is their belief that to create a true sense of trust between the governed and the government, the nation’s leader must be above the politics of the day, beholden to no special interest group, and free to do what must be done for the good of all Americans, not just the party he or she leads. They too have become disgusted with the current state of affairs in American politics. They are patriots just like you. They are sick of the squabbling, backroom deals, special interest groups and the pandering thereto. It really is enough to make one’s stomach turn. To think that America’s forefathers fought, and died to prevent this sort of corruption from occurring only to see it propagated in their name is a sad fact. However, there is still hope for America, and her citizens.

    Again, they want to make this clear, they DO NOT want the United States of America to terminate their independence. They, the Royalist Tea Party, commit themselves to the establishment of a constitutional monarchy for the United States of America. If you have ever thought that the United States would be much better off if the United States did not have politicians running things, the Royalist Tea Party might be for you! They are not left, they are not right, they are the royalists and if you think otherwise, then you have twisted in the name of what you choose to call them.

    “Impartiality and continuity are important aspects of government, and it is doubtful whether any form of democratic government yet discovered provides these to any greater extent than does constitutional monarchy” – Sydney D Bailey, British Parliamentary Democracy, Harrap, 1959.

    “The public are sick and tired of politics, they are sick and tired of the machinations of elected office in a media age, and I think it’s quite good having a Head of State that’s completely to one side of that.” – Simon Upton, New Zealand Environment Minister, March 1994.

    “The State functions more easily if it can be personified. An elected President who has stepped out of politics, like the French President, is no substitute for a King who has stepped in by right of inheritance. Still less is an active politician, like the President of the United States, a substitute. We can damn the Government and cheer the King.” – W Ivor Jennings, The British Constitution, 1943.

    “Parliamentary monarchy fulfills a role which an elected president never can. It formally limits the politicians’ thirst for power because with it the supreme office of the state is occupied once and for all.” – Max Weber, German economist.

    “Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’ Expediency asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’ But conscience asks the question, ‘Is it right?’ And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but because conscience tells one it is right.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
