Just like the constitutional monarchy in Great Britain that is America's most trusted ally, the Kingdom of Hawaii was modeled like theirs's, BUT with an American style constitution.

Do you find Great Britain's government oppressive?

The UK has a CONSTITUTIONAL MONARCHY, not absolute.  A constitutional monarchy is one in which the reigning monarch (that is, the king or queen who is the head of state at any given time) does not make any open political decisions. All political decisions are taken by the government and Parliament.

Another type is the LIMITED MONARCHY, or a ceremonial monarchy, where the royals carry out public and charitable duties.  Sweden would be an example.

Maybe you need to do a little research before asking such plebeian queries.   :sleeping:

Maybe you missed where I said "that includes absolute monarchies.".

That, from the person who thinks a monarchy represents freedom, and a Constitutional Democratic-Republic represents oppression.

You were the one making inferences that the monarchial form of government does not represent freedom and only constitutional democratic-republic forms of government does not represent oppression.

In many instances, both Great Britain and the Kingdom of Hawaii had tremendous amounts of freedom compared to the US during the same time period.

Both GB and Hawaii did not have the institution of slavery and Hawaii had more egalitarian rights for all of its minorities early on where the US only achieved that after the Civil Rights movements in the 1960s.

Timeframe for context?  I'm no expert historian, but if the context is "both Great Britain and the Kingdom of Hawaii had tremendous amounts of freedom compared to the US during the same time period". . .

Do you have a reading comprehension deficit?  If you have to insert words that convey absolutisms or generalities where I didn't say that, then it demonstrates how useless it is to even try and have a discussion/argument with you.  You love to spin what the other people here say/imply/never said in any way, shape or form to then have something to rant against.

That's called creating a straw argument, and it gets really old.  Try to focus on what was actually communicated, and not what your bias/hate filters tell you was meant.
