Britain has voted for independence from Eurotopia. I am stunned, I really thought there was no way the ruling class would allow BREXIT to win. Now, will the bankers and political class really allow Britain to leave? We will wait and see.
Also, is this a harbinger of things to come, not just in Europe, but here as well. It’s obvious the cultural and social fissures in the US run deep and we see the cracks all the time. Britons resented the heavy-handed rule from an unaccountable, unelected bureaucracy in Brussels as much as many Americans in the heartland resent being ruled over by heavy-handed, unaccountable, unelected bureaucrats in Washington DC. Texas does not want to live under New York’s gun laws, nor does Alabama want to live under California’s environmental laws. Sanctuary cities make a mockery of immigration law even as the USA has clearly taken in more people than can be supported economically. As Washington uses Government power to hammer the values of a small cadre of political elites on an increasingly unwilling nation, the cracks grow deeper and more numerous. BlackLivesMatter is one crack, Donald Trump is another. I would not be surprised to see the USA split up in my lifetime.
So, you know, maybe California should show the way now. We know how much you guys hate being attached to “Flyover Country,” and you are obviously far more “progressive” than the rest of us… so maybe a nice Calexit would be good for everybody. California has embraced full-on progressivism, and shouldn’t let the rest of the USA hold you guys back. And you can take Feinstein, Pelosi, and Moonbeam with you.
