What a win for freedom, severing the ties to an undemocratic regime. A great victory over Globalism and the failures of western establishment.
It’s a week on and the storm is clearing.
Firstly to those of you screaming all Brexiters are racist. One, in the words of Stefan Molyneux, that’s not an argument. Two, I highly doubt that over half of your population are truly racist. Three, you are naïve and very close minded to think that people with different values than you are inherently bad and that you are superior to them.
Yes immigration was one of the major issues facing the UK. Not having control of your own borders is a scary thought. Most countries have very strict immigration laws. It is only common sense to be in control of who you let into your country both from a protection, an economic and a housing point of view.
Voting leave does not mean you hate immigrants or are banning immigration entirely that is overblown propaganda by the #remain party. Anyone with analytical abilities (so I hope everyone that reads this) can see that.
If simplified and generalized into its most basic form, differing values is what defined this vote.
A Freedom mind-set vs a Globalist mind-set.
Those who value their democratic rights and liberties vs those that want free stuff in place of their freedom. – Those who believe (or have been brainwashed into thinking) that globalism and large government is a good idea.
Personally I can’t get over the irony that Hitler’s vision of a ‘One Europe’ – albeit under Germany, came true regardless of him losing WWII.
What about the Economic Backlash?!
Britain you were staring down an impoverished future… do Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Italy ring any bells?
The EU is on the brink of recession and of course the pound was going to take a hit upon severing ties however its future out of the EU is uncertain, with a potential for economic reform and growth.
In my honest opinion it is better to go with an uncertain option than a certain failure.
Granted your currency dropped to its lowest value in the past year but…
Now look only a week after #Brexit and the FTSE100 has soared to the highest it has been in 5 years – http://www.express.co.uk/finance/city/685216/FTSE-100-leaps-to-HIGHEST-level-since-2015-just-a-week-after-Brexit
More than 11 countries have spoken up to strike trade deals with you… Including India where the EU itself has failed to create deals. http://heatst.com/uk/nonmageddon-the-brexit-hurricane-was-a-storm-in-a-tea-cup/
Granted I’m by no means an economics student or stock market expert but to me the outcry over this downfall in Britain has been largely over-hyped.
Lastly. To those suggesting to “Ban old people from voting”
That sounds like an extremely totalitarian thing to do… Promoted by who? The young liberal arts students who are now figuring out that their degree won’t pay well? No offence art students I’m just broadly generalizing like an asshole.
To my generation who still think that their future is over because of ‘old people’ please step out of the cave and into the light. I’m not going to deny that the baby boomers have fucked us over on more than one occasion but this was not one of them.
The ‘pitting the young against the old’ agenda has to stop. If you really think your future is destroyed and you have no control over it then you don’t have any control because you have a pathetic mind-set.
Truth be told the older generations who have fought for your freedoms and have a wealth of life experience over you are thinking about your future… They have experience of being both in and out of the EU.
Regardless of your position on the matter you have to admire the balls of Nigel Farrage in his leaving speech to the EU… All he needed to do was drop the mic. I guess ‘You can’t Barrage the Farrage’ ayyy lmao.
