I wonder..

What would the world be like if the United States was a monarchy?

Assume that Washington's hiers are the royal family. What would be different? What would have happend the same?

Probably not THAT much different, assuming his kingly responsibilities were the same as the current Presidential ones.

Succession would've been more colorful, but most of this country's history is about acts of Congress and the Supreme Court.

He didn't?

Hmmm. The King choosing his succesor.

Kind of like what they did in the early Roman Empire.

It's a moot question.

The United States wouldn't have existed as a Monarchy. It would have been a completely different nation, with completely different people in charge, and completely different ideals and make-up.

So, it wouldn't have existed. It would have been England West.

So what would the world have been like if there were 2 Englands?
