Whys doesn't the USA start a Monarchy instead of having presidents?
have Kings and Queens instead
All hail King Trump
Actually a Monarchy has nothing to with politics does it. President is equivalent to Prime Minister. Iv'e been a bit naive here

Monarchies are based on historical traditions dating before democracies came to power, you can't invent one out of nowhere. America could imitate the British monarchy but it wouldn't serve any useful purpose.
Most countries no longer have monarchies. Example: France, Germany, Italy, China, Russia. All of Latin America.

because our founding fathers started a revolution and as a result a lot of people died so that we could get out from under that.

Because we do not want a monarchy. That is why we fought for our independence from England, so we won't be ruled by a monarchy.

Who knows? But, keep your fingers crossed: Pete Buttigieg could get elected president, which would make him the first self-proclaimed "queen" in the oval office. "Oh no u di'n't."

They had one, before we became a nation. It stunk, so we didn't want that any more.

That's what we're trying so hard to prevent. Personally, I don't want my life to be in the hands of a king. Especially ones like the tyrants in history who tortured prisoners and arbitrarily executed them in horrible ways without trial. In fact, Washington DC was designed by the grandson of a British milkmaid who had been accused of stealing the milk. So, she was given the choice of staying and being executed, or being exiled to the U.S. as an indentured servant (temporary slave).
BTW, you should know what was found in the historic Tower of London after it was taken down. They discovered the remains of two grade school aged children who had been walled-off in a cell and left to perish.
Remember these 3 final words: Treasure your freedom.
