BRITAIN and the EU…or MINUS the EU!!

As of tonight, it looks like England HAS voted to LEAVE THE EU…HURRAH! 
Most of the reason seems to be about how the EU has foisted so many “refugees” on them and they want to feel sovereign again (the Brits, not the refugees!)…….

I SO HOPE that when I wake Friday morning, the numbers from tonight will have stayed solid and they DID VOTE AGAINST THE EU….And I’m now hearing a woman announcing it HAS PASSED!!   WOW WOW WOW!!!

Early FIREWORKS! (ironic near July 4th, huh, if you get my drift?)

How do you feel about it?   We might have a bit of a bumpy financial ride, as might the rest of the world, but I’m willing if it means ONE COUNTRY’s people got sane and voted to be England again….to put a crimp in Globalization!

  1. I fully support Britain charting her own course, away from the sinking ship of the EU. The values and goals of one nation…is not the values and goals of many nations.

  4. From Donald Trump’s Facebook page:

    Statement Regarding British Referendum on E.U. Membership

    The people of the United Kingdom have exercised the sacred right of all free peoples. They have declared their independence from the European Union, and have voted to reassert control over their own politics, borders and economy. A Trump Administration pledges to strengthen our ties with a free and independent Britain, deepening our bonds in commerce, culture and mutual defense. The whole world is more peaceful and stable when our two countries – and our two peoples – are united together, as they will be under a Trump Administration.

    Come November, the American people will have the chance to re-declare their independence. Americans will have a chance to vote for trade, immigration and foreign policies that put our citizens first. They will have the chance to reject today’s rule by the global elite, and to embrace real change that delivers a government of, by and for the people. I hope America is watching, it will soon be time to believe in America again.

    Several thoughts flittered through my head as I walked in the pre-dawn murk with Monsterdawg this mornin.

    Shot in the arm for the idea of democratic decision-making.
    Slap in the face to one-worldism.
    EU is now a German collective.
    France will be next.
    Greece must be completely confused.

    This can be a definite negative for the liberal elitists come this fall . . . IF the Trump campaign can spin it properly. Big banks and surrendering power to extra-national bodies took a serious body shot.

    Immigration . . . BIG factor. Should work for Trump.

    Then my stomach took over and my thoughts turned to breakfast.

  6. The decision is also a rejection of the kind of cozy, corrupt and
    unaccountable arrangements that have enriched elites at the expense of ordinary people who bear the brunt of regulations and laws by the European Union for which no British citizen voted to enact.

    The European Union even went so far at one point to dictate the size and curvature of bananas and cucumbers that could be sold in British shops. The Nanny State supreme.

    American leadership shares one thing in common with their British counterpart: ineptness. Withdrawing from the EU simply illustrates what a idiotic idea it was to join in the first place. Will a separate entity in any way solve the problem in Great Britain of Middle Eastern infestation? Not at all; the camel’s hump is inside the tent and now thanks to the practice of polygamy, which is rampant inside Great Britain (as it is here), the once great island nation stands on the threshold of its own destruction. Meanwhile, back in America, we are learning nothing at all from any of this.

The EU was a wicked idea to start with. Sure the markets will crash and shudder for awhile, but, shoot, how could it get any worse?! They’ll stabilize and then be stronger than ever with REAL numbers (I hope). Now if we can just get rid of DingleBarry and the HildaBeast …

    Sparky, we really do need to SHAKE OFF THE SHACKLES. It’s why I am so excited.

    AOW…I absolutely love what someone wrote on Trump’s site….they need to HAMMER THIS….let Americans hear it. So far, it’s only Cons. media covering Trump’s reactions to Brexit.
    Most of the homepages didn’t mention it till well after the vote!…and it’s all ‘gloom and doom’ from the lib media’s perspective, of course.

    Kid…part of the joy IS seeing Obama so upset. The part I can’t take is his incessant LECTURING. He might as well have included “THEY’LL BE SORRY and SO WILL WE”…. he came pretty close, the jerk.
    I’d be VERY surprised if many countries follow suit, by the way…extremely surprised. THey’re too scared to cut themselves off. This took great courage on the part of England.

    Mustang; a separate entity’s a good start since CAMERON IS STEPPING DOWN (which I call COWARDICE)….another miracle in England could be getting conservatives into Parliament who will do what’s necessary to GET RID OF THE THOUSANDS OF YOUNG MEN “refugees”….what a joke.

    Bocopro; the EU IS now a “German Collective”…you couldn’t be more right.
    But it won’t happen in France…you’re not right there. GREAT list, otherwise…excellent.
    It’s the dismissal of ONE WORLDISM I like the most!

    CI…wishing you well over there! Of course I agree with you on this.

    I wish I had about $100K with which to BUY LOW! 🙂

    Z, there are several countries that have discovered they’ve stepped in something quite nasty with these ‘migrants’. They honestly thought they’d come in, get jobs and blend in to their cultures for the most part. (Read the koran maybe ahead of time when you’re responsible for making these kind of decisions?) Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands have gotten quite an education. Vigilante gangs are going around in Sweden and beating the hell out of them. Most of these countries are trying to pay them to leave, some countries say they’ll force them to leave, but no one yet believes that will amount to much. It appears Italy badly wants to remove the forced migration also. It is the number 1 issue at all these countries. Makes me wonder how many moslems have invaded Ireland who already voted to stay in EU and Scotland who wants to have their own vote to stay. Not sure about Germany with the reported % who support Merkle..

    This is what happens when the elitist get to full of themselves & ignore the electorate. A good article below. I hope Angela is quaking in her burka. And, no, Britain will not be the last.
    ____________

    Powerline:
    POSTED ON JUNE 24, 2016 BY STEVEN HAYWARD IN EUROPEAN UNION, UNITED KINGDOM
    ANOTHER “SHOT HEARD ROUND THE WORLD”?
    “Gerard Baker of the Wall Street Journal offers the best summary this morning of the larger meaning of Brexit. Gerry, as his friends and colleagues call him, is a subdued fellow not given to hyperbole, which is why this judgment is so bracing:

    “Levels of dissatisfaction with leadership have reached revolutionary levels. It’s a paradox of mass modern democracy that voters feel themselves governed by rulers who “neither see nor feel nor know,” a political-business nexus that feeds on itself and promotes its own interests while mouthing platitudes at election time to keep the populace at bay. In Europe and the U.S. today, traditional political authority is worn like a scarlet letter. . .

    The very idea that the state has a primary obligation to its native citizens has become unfashionable and virtually unsayable within the tightly controlled bounds of political correctness. . .

    The stunning reality of Brexit needs to be understood as simply the most dramatic development yet in these trends. The British people have spoken, the first to break publicly from the institutional structures that define our modern, integrated international system.

    They are very unlikely to be the last.”

    The rest of Europe is going to keep sinking economically and socially while the UK will get stronger. If countries like France want to be run by bureaucrats so they can get their welfare freebies, they’ll die slowly and will be taken over by uneducated immigrants. 52% in the UK got that.

    Kid, I know all that and I don’t believe they’ll do anything like England just did against this…I just heard Tony Blair say this won’t stop migration, anyway, legally or any other way, which makes me sad. We’ll see. But I don’t believe many of those countries can afford to get out of the EU.

    The REALLY GOOD THING ABOUT LEAVING THE EU is that people will need passports to ENTER non-EU countries from EU countries (and others) now. THAT is the saving grace. IF border patrols are reimplemented, of course….that’ll remain to be seen.

    Silverlady, I am hoping against hope you’re all correct and other countries will follow suit.
    I’ll be VERY VERY surprised..a bunch of angry people doesn’t a referendum make, sadly.
    Germany? NO WAY. It’ll take a miracle. But they need it the MOST…they have the most ‘invaders’ as my German stepson calls them…not ‘refugees’.
