What is your opinion on the best form of government?
Most of us live in a democratic society, but there are many who are of the mind of Monarchy, Communism, or otherwise..
What do you think?

Anarchy. Heh. Just kidding. For real..A Monarchy, even though I don't live in one. But a Monarchy with limited powers.

Problem with a monarchy is you can end up with a non-leading type for a head-of-state.

The best is probably a mix of socialism, communism and democracy, you could vote for a leader, all taxes could be spent on the people, and there would be little governmental deficit, at least if it was a perfect world.

Idealistically, Anarchy would be the best. In a perfect world we would not need protection, or a leader.

Perfect Communism is near-ideal but it never works out.
I prefer Monarchy.
bugjacob do you mean Constitutional Monarchy?

If it's a small country that is rather wealthy, a government that pays for itself. Governments are nearly always formed of rich people, so why not make the government empty its own pockets for the people?

Just remember a quote from Albert Einstein:
Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind.
and Dan Fried:
Nationalism ... is like cheap alcohol. First it makes you drunk, then it makes you blind, then it kills you.

Personally my political views, simply based around my current society support a socialist democracy. However, had I the oppourtunity, I would support a meritocracy; if only because I have come toe realize most people do not care about politics and they should. A meritocracy would limit the masses and ensure that only the well informed and intelligent made the crucial descions that are needed to be made.
