Another way to look at Brexit

I have this friend who I’ve never met. We both like to write. We both want to make the world a better place. As a team we say the same thing in different ways. Maybe one will click better than the other. But here is what Brett Pharo had to say about Brexit. Prolly the best indicator that we’ve come a long way since that bastard, Lincoln, thought 600,000 people had to die so his precious union was preserved.

Really. What would it look like today if The South simply had become another country? To believe slavery would still be a part of their labor system is silly. Separate governments more accurately represent their constituents. Cultures don’t clash, they cooperate, yet still compete.  Workers perform better when they want to earn a living than when they are forced to perform. A short glance at union shops vs private businesses across the country will make that obvious.

Anyway, here is what Brett said in his Random Thoughts From the Corner Chair column:

“Luckily, I don’t think the European Union leaders will follow the example of the leaders of the union on this side of the pond in the 1860’s.  I don’t see them calling for an invasion of the UK to force them back into the union, as Lincoln did in America.”

One response to “Another way to look at Brexit

  1. The British people should not be so naive as to think that their vote settles the matter. The fight has only begun. Expect:

    — The British government to come back to the people and say, look, the EU has given us a better deal. We can now afford to stay in.

    — The Fed, ECB, BOJ, and NY hedge funds to pound the pound and to short British stocks in order to convince the British voters that their vote is sinking the economy.

    — More emphasis on the vote’s weakening of Europe, leaving all to the mercy of “Russian aggression.”

    — Hard to resist bribes (and threats) to prominent members of the leave majority and pressure on such leave leaders as Boris Johnson to be reasonable, conciliatory and to maintain good relations with Washington and Europe, and to reach a compromise on remaining in the EU.

    — Expect the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) to attribute the loss of British jobs and investment opportunities to the leave vote.

    Once you learn to think about how things really are and not as the presstitutes (national media) present them, you will be able to add to the list all by yourself.

    As per Paul Craig Roberts

    “Russian aggression” is nonsense, but ginned-up by Crooked Hillary and a war-mongering U.S. State Department.

    Britain has two years to get out of the EU and a lot can happen, especially when the vote is not binding. Can’t wait for the “voter fraud” and investigations to rear their heads.
