If US was a former British colony, should it join the Commonwealth of Nations and recognize the queen?

While normally that might be a good idea, due to the massive incompetence of the GOP, including their last two Presidents, now that the utter loon Boris is PM of the UK, this would not be a real improvement.

We fought a war in 1776 in order to gain our independence from the 13 colonies. We certainly don’t want to take them back now.

If the US wanted to join the Commonwealth, it wouldn't have to recognize the Queen as its own head of state. There are 33 member countries that are republics (i.e., don't have a monarch as head of state) and 5 member countries that have their own monarchs.

The US does not feel the need to join the Commonwealth, being , or once being, quite an influential country.
The US already recognizes the Queen as monarch of many realms and our ally.

Being a former colony, protectorate or Mandate/Trust territory is no longer a compulsory requirement of membership in The Commonwealth of Nations, nor is having the British monarch as your country’s Head of State.
The US, does recognise The Queen in her positions as Head of State of 16 countries in the context of international diplomacy.
