Welcome,
My family fought for HM George III (though we came over as transportees).

I'm leaning towards Anglicanism...

I'm very strongly Tricameral, with an active executive monarch, hereditary lords, and a commons that is part of the whole, not the whole in parts.

I'm happy to be replied to so soon, quite a rarity online, and thank you for the welcome. Now, when you say executive monarch...do you mean in the sense as him/her being the head of government? Like King George the III was during his reign, or do you have different ideas?

Like Elizabeth I or Charles II, or George III was trying to be.....

Ah, thank you for clarifying. I was merely curious.

Also, I just hit the 2,000 post mark on August 6th, which was also the 2nd anniversary of when I signed up to this forum.

Well, first off, My name is Christopher. My Surname is Benoit, descendent from the Dumaines and the Blaises. It is a long standing tradition in my family (so I am not completely sure of its accuracy) that we are descendent from French Aristocrats from the Perpingan area of France. I live in the United States (washington state), my politics are generally conservative, my religion Baptist. Though I must say I have a strong distaste for "religion" I prefer to worship freely, not be told how I should be doing it.

I strongly support the restoration of the European monarchs, but also love the freedom I am afforded in my own country. So the solution? A combination of the American model of Government with a strong monarch. (Basically Monarch for President, Senate being summarily replaced with Nobels appointed by the Monarch, the house of representatives staying marginally the same, the supreme court sytems staying the same. I also believe that most of the constitution could be reworded to fit for a constitutional monarch. Though I believe some of the restrictions regarding the limits (which are fairly grey areas in the United states. not many people know it but the president can do what he wills, via Executive memorandum, until one of the other three branches checks him) Would be nice to keep the intricate system of checks and balances if possible, to keep the French distater from happening again.

I believe the British system of Parliament is far to easy to become corrupt in and also not quite as efficent as the American system. nor does it have nearly a strong monarichal position as I would like.

My primary Monarchy intrests are in England and France, though the others can draw my attention from time to time.


Vive la Roi

Welcome.
Fold the Supremes back in to the Lords (Senate), and you'll find the 'theoretical US System' you've described very close to the real British one under Elizabeth I.  (See Thomas Smyth's 'Republica').
