Well first of all, I'm a politics/international relations and history double major, so that account for me knowing something about something, I'm also a dual national European, so the general conjecture would be SOME anti-American bias but, it's not really the case as my formal education keeps what I say in check. But this thread isn't about me.
Unfortunately the propensity is that most Americans take Pax Americana all to seriously and don't believe there is a world outside of America.... The constitution is difficult to change, but it depends on how you wish to interpret it. Is it a living document? Is it how the founding fathers would have wanted. The nonsense with Gorsuch put a bad taste in my mouth.
If the Repubs thought Obama was out of control with executive orders we've seen a new level with Trump and I'm beginning to lose faith that the separation of powers is doing what its supposed to do with a rampant executive. See that is the difference which makes the Australian constitution work the way it does. Our executive is always a foreign impartial third party.
I once supported an independent Australia with an Australian executive and head of state but the more I look at what goes on in the Philippines, Russia, the United States, Malaysia. Where ever there is an example of this, the lights not shining brightly on a large and unwieldy president. The more I think about it the more I'm starting to believe in Pax Britannica simply because the executive cannot be manipulated in such a way as to watch the whole world burn around you.
At least in Australia when things get this unwieldy we have precedent that the commonwealth can remove a dysfunctional Prime Minister.... Now whether you believe that rightly or wrongly, it happened. It happened through an impartial third party, and I'm starting to think that the checks and balances in Australia are right in these situations.
If I were an America right now, I'd be burrying my head in the sand until the mid terms and then I'd be voting democrat regardless of what state I was living in.
