    in Australia she sacked that whitlam guy a while ago
    I'm not familiar with why Gough Whitlam was dismissed, but the fact remains that the Queen's powers are mostly symbolic.

    Source?

    Her powers are symbolic. For example, the British Armed Forces are owned by the Queen, but that doesn't mean that the Queen or anyone else in the Royal family can decide on foreign policy or start wars; that is for the Prime Minister and the other houses of government to decide.

    If she is really symbolic, what is the point of having her .... why don't we get rid of her?

    No im not choosing because none of those sound sufficient for me.
    A social-democracy, or a democratic-socialist government would be my choice if they were up there.

    Constitutional Republic, if we can keep it.
    Haymarket's "support" of the 2nd Amendment, a right he believes we never had.

    Such great options.
    "We have more responsibility than power, I think. The newspaper can create great controversies, stir up arguments within the community or discussion, can throw light on injustices....just as it can do the opposite. It can hide things and be a great power for evil." -- Rupert Murdoch, 1968
