So there are a few problems with this, parliament wasn't necessary for the government to work at this time, the king just couldn't raise taxes without them. So the government was still working. Tthe king just pissed off the people with money and they defeated his army beheaded him and plunged the country into anarchy, then into a oppressive dictatorship. Point of this lesson is ITS NOT THE SAME.

this isn't the United State's first shut down. The last one was in 1996, during Clinton's term. And other than a blow job and a funny tasting cigar his two terms rocked.

Different king. God do you know nothing of Stuart's history specifically who ruled and when?

Yeah, you had a civil war. And after the Civil War you went straight back to having a king, he returned - and you dug up the body of Cromwell, and several others and had them executed post-mortem.

Let me break down for you why this won't happen in America

-The people are complacent / lazy as ****
-Assuming the above fails, the government would probably end up killing or dispatching all the protesters with police / military soldiers / ******* tanks, and all the people would instantly have their rights stricken away, no fair trial or any of the privileges a normal, law abiding, complacent citizen would. They would probably be detained or locked away and tortured and blahblahblah.

Trust me, the American government is excellent at pretending its not a fear state.

there was one civil war going on....
led by some dude called Cromwell.
he died, they dug him up and he got executed again
User avatar #29 - theshadowed (10/03/2013) [-]
That civil war then created a dictatorship from a ruthless man who beheaded the King without letting him give a defense, ruthlessly crushed revolts, and slaughtered the Irish. Cronwell wasn't very nice. But he created the best goddamned army Britain had ever seen

I wouldn't mind removing Harry Reid and transferring some of the federal government's power back to the states where it originally belongs.
