The British people have chosen to leave the EU with a higher margin than expected.
The is the feeling that this was motivated more by recent problems with Muslim refugees than economic woes.
It is no secret that President Obama has encouraged the UK to stay in the EU.
Personally, I take heart in that. If I knew nothing else about Brexit, I would do exactly what Obama told me not to do. He is the Captain Peter “Wrong Way” Peachfuzz of Commanders in Chief. Take all the advice that he as to give, than to exactly the opposite. Watch this clip and replace “Captain” with “POTUS” and “USS Andalusia” with “USA” and tell me it’s not an accurate description of his legacy.
What the British people have done is defy the political elite of the EU.
I believe that this is the ballot box equivalent of the John Brown raid on Harper’s Ferry. It may not be the first shots fired of a European civil war, but it sure as hell pushed it along. The Prime Minister has resigned over the vote. Several other EU nations have been bitten by the bug of secession.
I don’t know what the future holds for the UK and the EU. But right now, I really wish the people the UK had not given up their ability to own guns. I think, very soon, they will need them.
