While America & Britain share a common history, few Americans have an affinity for the whole concept of a Royalty.
Our individualistic flair doesn't make us conducive to being subject to the dictates of a monarch. But it is important to understand where we've come from.
Blogger VladimirUlayanov left a brief history of the British Royal Family's lineage on AmericanThinker.com that will prove educational for many.

Erdogan is one of those type dictators that screams a lot and does anything he wants until he is stopped.
About the recent diplomatic row in the Netherlands: Turkish officials tried to enter and reach the Consulate after being warned not to come. Basically they were "persona non grata".
No sovereign country is obliged to let some official enter their territory, the rules for diplomatic immunity only apply for those diplomats already inside.Read more
Globalization was all well and good when it was about expanding economic opportunities, setting up factories and businesses with desperately needed jobs in places that had no other economic options to join the global marketplace.
The downside was yes, this cost some jobs at home, but this was somewhat mollified by understanding that the dollars per day those companies were paying the new workers was economically transforming in those areas.Read more
"I feel like I am attending a meeting of a religious sect here this morning. It’s as if the global revolution of 2016, Brexit, Trump, the Italian rejection of the referendum, has completely bypassed you.
You can’t face up to the fact that this bandwagon is going to roll across Europe in these elections in 2017. A lot of citizens now recognize this form of centralized government simply doesn’t work.
There are many incongruities in the EU. First, the Common Market was successful. It did not and does not require the EU step of political integration. Political integration can never work because there is just too much history in Europe.
The Germans don't REALLY want to become France and France doesn't REALLY want to become Germany. Etc.
Furthermore, just as part of the argument, take Germany. The Germans are great people: disciplined, industrious, well-educated, etc. But...they really have not been able to get this government thing quite right going back at least 200 years.Read more
The EU wants millions of 3rd world migrants they don't care where they come from. The goal is to destroy the indigenous Europeans (this includes America, Canada, Australia, New Zealand) to make way for an eventual New World Order. One government, one religion and one race.
You only need to look at a few of the EU's policies and programs like the Kalergi plan, human rights, open borders...it's very anti-european. Europeans must now pay for their own demise. They have imported war.Read more
This is why the nationalists are rising so swiftly in Europe. Because the European left would rather their people be slaughtered by terrorists than bend an inch on their radical ideology.
Support for the AfD in Germany has surged now after this last attack, and support for the leftist parties is plummeting in every country.Read more
Tolerance of Islamic intolerance is now the German government’s cardinal doctrine. What does this say for the priorities of the German government, and for the future of Germany?
Islam is a religion and is a belief system that mandates warfare against unbelievers for the purpose for establishing a societal model that is absolutely incompatible with Western society. How did the Europeans get into this situation?Read more
Yes I know that the referendum was non-binding. And that was an error, or cunning plan, by EU Dave. But I doubt any leaver entered the voting booth on 23rd June thinking "if we vote out Parliament can ignore this because it's advisory only".
And a vote in Parliament will see this happen because hard Brexit will be defeated there.
I voted out because I want UK law to have primacy over EU law and to control our borders. I'm not anti-immigrant, I'm married to one, but I want Britain to have the final say on our immigration policy.Read more
Due to the continent's worst migrant crisis since World War II, European populist parties are surging.
GERMANY -- Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union (CDU) lost seats in a backlash against her "open-door" refugee policy. Alternative for Germany (AfD) won 14 percent of the vote.
AUSTRIA -- The Freedom Party (FPOe) narrowly missed winning a May 22 presidential election. Norbert Hofer could be Europe's first populist head of state since 1945.
SLOVAKIA -- In March, the People's Party Our Slovakia won 14 seats in parliament. Prime Minister Robert Fico called EU migrant policy "ritual suicide".Read more
