JMB BS: Duchess of Cambridge (76* d) RE: BS: Duchess of Cambridge 28 Apr 18

I am a democratic republican myself living in Canada which is still part of this disgusting "commonwealth." I believe in freedom, democracy, equality and inclusion. I believe in linguistic and cultural rights in a multicultural society and separation of church and state. Why is it that we have a head of state who inherits the title rather than elected by the people, lives in a different country rather than our own, and belongs to a particular religion, and throughout history this family has committed acts of genocide or ethnic cleansing of many peoples in many lands? If you state that these acts were centuries ago, get over it, I think not. The British establishment has committed many of these acts even within the last century. Barack Obama for example, his grandfather in Kenya was a victim of a British act of genocide. I don't know much about Obama meself, but if I were in his shoes, I would not think very highly of the foyal family.

Some various lyrics from Rabbie Burns's "A Man's A Man For A' That." One of my favourite pieces by my favourite literary artist. I sing this song with great pride and passion. Democracy and equality for all.

Ye see yon birkie ca'd ae lord,
Wha struts an' stares t a' that;
Tho' hundreds worship at his word,
He's but ae cuif for a' that.

The man o' independant mind,
He looks an' laughs at a' that.

Ae prince can mak' ae belted knight,
Ae marquis, duke an' a' that;
But an honest man's aboon his might,
Guid faith, he maunna fa' that.
