    Spokesperson/mascot/figurehead which is what I assume that the Queen of England is.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    She does 'rule' us in any sense of the word. She is merely a head of State.
    How does she "rule?"

    Can she declare war? What about raise/lower taxes? Does she have any real say whatsoever in these matters or any other matter of national importance for that matter?

    I love brit's. They are our allies. They are our friends. We are tied at the hip as far as I'm concerned. If they want to preserve their heritage and history by prolonging the monarchy it is entirely their business.

    But I think the very idea of the Queen, King, etc., in this day and age is as silly as Benny Hill. If it we're me, I'd tell the Queen and her family to "Get a job. Get a check." Their farts don't smell any better than anyone elses.

    So, please pardon this Yank if I sport a smirk when I see the royalty on TV, in the tabloids, etc. It's just all so rediculous to me. But I'll try to be polite about it.

    Maybe you need to go and learn some fact about what the Queen/King actual can and can't do before you make any post.

    I'm thinkin' typos are at play here. Methinks she might have meant "doesn't" instead of "does" but I don't mean to put words into her mouth. I think she just had a typo. Otherwise her post makes absolutely no sense.

    The British have a great sense of humour.
