What would have happened? I have a few thoughts but I will wait for others who could enlighten me.

It is doable, since all the country would have to invoke is more states rights, relative to several social issues.

@Foofie,
So you ACTUALLY want Dubya President for life?

Do you realize you are making a quantum leap from what I said?

I do not answer such questions, since I do not do repartee.

@Foofie,
The fact that you suggest it is doable has a hint of acceptance not necessarily agreeable somewhat like going to the dentist.

Being close friends for the past twenty years, you do know exactly how I think, in my sarcastic opinion.

@Foofie,
Anyway my feeling is that the United States would devolve into smaller states as a result of the financial meltdown as people start taking things into their own hands as they can't rely on government any more. There could have been a civil war as well.

Canada would be affected as the British felt it as a backwater country and did not see the looming crisis of Western disenfranchisement by the Eastern establishment. The provinces of Ontario and Quebec alone account for the majority of the Canadian population and the elections reflect that. The Senate is appointed. The Founding Fathers of American Revolution saw to it that densely populated areas would be sliced and diced into smaller political states so as not to dominate the political land scape. Ontario and Quebec dominate Canadian politics and crack seams are appearing as the Liberal Party seems to represent Ontario and Quebec mainly and the Conservative Party Alberta where the oil sands are and British Columbia. The new Democratic Party represent Labor. The Bloc Quebecois Party presents separatists in Quebec. With a broken up United States I can see British Columbia and Alberta joining up with California, Oregon and Washington States to form Cascadia. Alaska would probably be involved. I can see Texas and Floridabecoming the bookends of the gulf states such as Arkansas, Louisiana, Alabama with other Dixie states Mississippi, Tennessee, Georgia forming a coalition. These are the strongest impressions. Midwest and the Northeast are hazier for me as to which direction they will take.

Revolution. Barricades in the streets with many of the police and the military joining the rioters . I have absolutely no doubt in my own mind that this would have happened.

@Merry Andrew,
Good to have you back from the hospital.

Would it be too far off if I mentioned assassination attempts? I am sure some in the military and the spooks would plot something as Dubya goes about destroying the American way of life and hollowing out the military.

The USA would plummet to the status of, say, Burundi. As it is, GWB has only taken the US to the level of Tanzania.

@talk72000,
This is like asking someone: “Would you be able to eat a bowl of freshly oozed pus for breakfast each morning?”

Your question is a question that can be put into English words; it is a question that can be understood…but is a question too disgusting to even give much contemplation. In fact, I’d feel more comfortable contemplating my response question than yours.

In any case, I hope this response gives you some indication of how I would answer your question if I decided to answer it.

That's the brand new breakfast special being added to menus across the country tomorrow.
Fear not, it will only be on the menu for 4 years.

it wouldn't be life, it would be about 30 years, which under w's reign would feel like an eternity

and lest we forget the book depository, were they crowned the king of cuba

Only for Republicans and conservatives.

The rest of us get pancakes with bacon.

@Frank Apisa,




The hateful dark side gets pancakes and bacon with no substitutions - bon appetit.


Fun loving Republicans and Conservatives will have steak and eggs or whatever they want.

@H2O MAN,
the funniest part of this whole idea, is somebody from the right would most likely take him out

it would be the far right for sure, but they're the ones most adamant to protect the constitution, they'd probably let it slide for awhile, but if the monarchy was extended too long, you'd definitely see the rise of a militia or two
