Well yes! why should the British Royal family, its self imported from Germany rule in any way over us.
Banana Republics will get a run if this thread does, but remember America is a Republic.
Is it time we cut the apron strings? say thank you will always be our friend but we are leaving home?

Charles seems quite a decent chap . The missus has a grin so yeah , give him a run. Bill and Scomo's mob have had too long at the wicket.

What would be the first available benefits to us ordinary folk ?
The hierarchy will still fleece us I'd imagine that will never change.

Apathetic mob are we not? Kings came from tribal chiefs but at least the chief had to be strong enough to protect his tribe.
Charlie may have trouble defending his lunch
PRIDE in our own country should be enough

Definitely NO to a politician's republic.

Definitely NOT,
we have one of the best political systems, How many Westminster countries have had a civil war? None, How many republics have had a civil war? all of them.

What a waste of money, the previous push for a republic estimated the cost at $10 billion dollars, so today you could easily double that and add some. I would rather $20-30 billion be spent on hospitals, better roads and our lifestyle, than waste it on becoming a republic.

Apart from someone becoming a president , why change?
does it help our trade with other countries? Does it help reduce unemployment? Or help reduce hospital waiting times. In fact there is no logical reason to waste billions of dollars.
