Ah - the fringe Right is heard from
President Bush can fail in his duty to himself, his country, and his God, by becoming “ex-president” Bush or he can become “President-for-Life” Bush: the conqueror of Iraq, who brings sense to the Congress and sanity to the Supreme Court. Then who would be able to stop Bush from emulating Augustus Caesar and becoming ruler of the world? For only an America united under one ruler has the power to save humanity from the threat of a new Dark Age wrought by terrorists armed with nuclear weapons. - Philip Atkinson, neo-crazy author.

But wait - this might not be a bad thing. Done properly a monarchy has certain advantages over the rabble-rousing Democracy we're currently encumbered with. Consider that there are a number of things that perhaps ought to be done that cannot be because our attention is drawn from manners of Great Import to fiddly details like earmarks and meddling with the corn harvest.

Like what? Well space exploration and settlement for one thing. As it is right we keep whipsawing every four or eight years on a new direction and the only thing that matters is that enough of the pork be spread around in a thin film in Important Congressional Districts. An absolute monarch could lay down the law and off with their heads if it's not done post-haste.

Style Jeb Duke of East Orange, make him head of the American Inner System Company, find some smart guys to run the place and let them go to town.

One problem with making Bush President For Life; lack of a male heir. We may assume that Laura is too old to bear more children.

On his death the crown would pass to his younger brother Jeb. Jeb has two sons (George P. and Jeb Jr.) so the House of Bush looks as if it will pass down through the nephews of the present President for Life, George I.

Long live the King.
