I will be taking the con position and I will do my best to prove my positions. Point 1: The USA is a democratic republic, meaning that it is a mixture of majority vote and enforcing the rule of law. The UK is a monarchy, meaning that there are royalty ruling it. In the USA, leaders are elected for the most part. Feel free to post other differences in the comments section.

The factors that my opponent has so far listed about America is very similar to the political system of the UK. The UK has a monarch. However, this fact isn't significant in the law making processes. The most chamber with the most power in the UK parliament is the house of commons, which is an elected body. The monarch has no input on the law making process and this process functions in much the same way as in the USA. In the UK, leaders are elected fro the most part.

I eagerly await further arguments from my opponent.

I wish I joined this debate.
In america the burden of proof rests on the prosecutors, where as in the uk it rests on the defense. And besides many other governmental differences, the location, climate, and pop culture are also different. And don't get me started on the dental plans.

Reasons for voting decision: Con knew little of the UK legal system. It is a Parliamentary Democracy/Constitutional Monarchy, indicating that the Monarch has almost no real power. Instead, power is vested in an elected Prime Minister. My note on spelling: "that there are royalty" should be "that there is royalty."
