Unnecessary Election

The people of Brazil are electing a new president of their federal republic today. This is quite unnecessary, really. Brazil used to have an emperor. Decendants of the emperor still live and the empire could return. In this case, Brazil would have a Head of State of the same rank as Japan. This would be cool. With an emperor, the people still elects the parliament and the head of government is appointed based on the outcome of the parliamentary election. You do not have to have elections for Head of State. Having a hereditary monarch is better. You can compare it to a wolf pack, where the power is inherited by a daughter of the alpha bitch. In our dog pack, I inherited the alpha position from my Mum. Inherited power is natural.
