Yes I believe it should be done away with also. It's just something handed down from the time of monarchs, as has been mentioned by others here. I haven't seen a convincing argument in the above posts, that sways me from this view. Why the USA would adopt this when they were thumbing their noses at the British monarchy is strange.
