Of Dictators and Kings

Dear readers,

It has come to my attention that Trump supporters think it’s okay to refer to him as more than a president, or the best president we’ve ever had. That, my friends, is not true. To think we had 45 presidents in over 200 years is a good thing. Most countries don’t have that many good leaders, but as for Trump, he wants to make America incorporated, not great, again. And he’s done a terrible job at it. Every thing out of his mouth is a lie, and he wants to make decisions for us that he shouldn’t be making. Yes, we’re in a pandemic, but being grateful for a bad leader is not what we should be. The root of this problem is greed, corruption, and male domination of this country’s government. We have women in our government, yes, but they’re not in the top spot.

America has had a long and proud history, however, and it was created so we could rid ourselves of kings and rulers in Britain, but here are a couple countries with kings in them, and I’ll explain why the kings are not good for those countries.

We can start with kings having power in countries like Saudi Arabia. Women are not given rights by any but the kings, and the kings of Saudi Arabia have the power to take away and give things to women such as rights. The latest ruler, MBS, Prince Salmon bin Mohammad, is a ruthless dictator who killed off a Washington Post columnist, cut off the royal family from taxpayer funds, and jailed Saudi feminists and stole credit for the right to drive for women. MBS, as he is somewhat affectionately called, is really a mean and ruthless warlord. In any case, Saudi Arabia has had its share of aggressive rule by kings since its founding by the Saudi royal family years before. LEt’s move on.

The United Arab Emirates has a group of men in charge, the Emirs, but they are almost as bad as MBS. While MBS is merely a prince, not the king yet, he’s trying to prove himself. But this next king did some pretty bad things to his own daughters. Daughters in the UAE are disposable, as happens to be the case of Princess Latifa, who is being held captive according to suggestions from Human Rights Watch, the British high courts, and the princess herself. Her father, the Emir of Dubai, has placed his own daughters on drugs and house arrest, something you just don’t do to your own children if you truly cared. Kings like these have the power to strip women like Princess Latifa of their rights and throw himself into a human rights mess.

There are good kings, bad kings, and ruthless kings. But let me explain what America was created for: no kings. Donald Trump thinks he’s a king, and I’m sorry, but America does not need a king. We were ruled by George III of England, and it was awful. We were taxed without representation, forced to comply with many other laws, and so much more that we dethroned King George III in 1776 but the war lasted longer than that. The Declaration of Independence has its purpose, so here you go.
