God Save the King!

Pictured above is Francis II, who "is the senior co-heir-general of King Charles I and therefore regarded as the rightful heir to the House of Stuart, which ruled England from 1567 to 1707," who "would now be ruling Brittania" were it not or the "[t]he 1701 Act Of Settlement passed the crown to Electress Sophia of Hanover and her Protestant descendants - and banned all Roman Catholics from ever ascending the throne" — The first 57 people in line to the throne were Catholic.

Of course, things would have been radically different on these shores, perhaps, if Mother England had stayed the course, as Daniel Larison suggested years ago — Onwards, Jeffersonian Jacobites!

Of the rightful House of Stuart, serving as King under the authority of the rightful Hapbsburg Emperor of the West, perhaps. Of the Jeffersonians, no. The Jeffersonians were the ultimate Whigs, enamored of the myth of progress, in love with the mob (and other example of their rank hypocrisy).
