This bit of good news was entirely welcome, and much needed.
There will be some temporary economic dislocation due to Brexit. But we must remain mindful that our economic house of cards has been at considerable risk of collapsing for some time, for various reasons entirely unrelated to the European Union.
The broader political and cultural implications of yesterday's vote are quite positive, however. Senator Jeff Sessions explains:
The interests of powerful international corporations, media, special interests, and leftist international forces are not coterminous with those of our people. This we must understand. The ultimate interest that our government is legally and morally bound to serve is that of our people.
He also relates Brexit to our upcoming November election. He said a month ago:
For the first time in a long time, this November will give Americans a clear choice on perhaps the most important issue facing our country and our civilization: whether we remain a nation-state that serves its own people, or whether we slide irrevocably toward a soulless globalism that treats humans as interchangeable widgets in the world market.
The United Kingdom ridding itself of the stifling leftists at the European Union is a major blow for independence and national sovereignty.
The United States today is quite analogous to the European Union. We have an overbearing federal government packed with transnational progressives and Godless incremental socialists from both major parties in all three branches. The individual states have a major problem on their hands because their constitutional powers have been taken away by our nefarious federal government. It is worse in many respects than the EU because it has been in existence much longer. (The EU, of course, has a much bigger problem with Muslim migration than we do.)
The federal structure of our republic is one of the chief sources of our liberty. But it has been critically undermined. Here in the USA, we need to be able to declare our independence once again somehow.
Last week, there was a foreshadowing of Brexit in Italy. The Five Star Movement (Movimento Cinque Stelle) captured nearly 20 races including the mayoralties of two major cities-- Rome and Turin. Italy has been overrun with Muslim migrants during recent months.
Let's be entirely frank. It was so good to see Obama repudiated in the UK. The Brits essentially ignored his demands. It was also good to see Cameron shot down. He is Britain's answer to establishment Republicanism.
