Well, the important difference between the current President and the last King George America knew means, as I said here, the President will have to leave office one day, thus giving the citizens of the US a chance to start afresh.

The joy of democracy is that it saves you from having to build a guillotine. I like it...

Hmm. Actually, Charles IX would probably be a better comparison. Louis XVI would be even better, if the fates smiled on us...
