The United States of America based its government off of the United Kingdom just as many Democracies do. Politics today are not what they should be just looking at this Presidential Debate. With the United Kingdom leaving the European Union it is a time for change just as they have shown.


My opponent has the burden of proof.

He's argued that the United State's government is rooted in Britain's earlier democratic model. Even if that were true, it doesn't explain why our government, economy and laws should be based on Britain's preferences today. The fact that we made it a point to leave British government and rule in the first place proves that people residing within this territory believe Britain was unfit to rule us. Since then, we have embraced liberty and freedom from British authority. Pro has not given us reason to return.

Just because the United Kingdom and United States might prefer and need change doesn't mean putting the U.S. under British authority will promote that positive change. The larger the state, the more problematic it can become and difficult to rule over; just look at the Roman Empire. We have no reason whatsoever to return to British rule. In fact, we should be asking for even more individual sovereignty from our current government. We need less government, not more government. Besides, the United States is doing better than Britain (especially economically) thus it would not be in our interest to combine market assets and status quo standards with a country worse off than ourselves [1].
