    it would seem that the english and the welsh are a little tired of another level of bureaucracy that takes no interest in their needs. the scots on the other hand expect a lot of freebies. the most interesting thing is the rumor that northern ireland might reconcile with the rest of the irish. the only thing we know for sure is that george soros made a killing.

    Sort of illustrates the downside of democracy … closer to mob rule, kneejerk reaction. It’s hard to accept that the East will be the economic leader in the upcoming decades. The West has exported not just jobs, but skills to the East and nationalism will not stop that from happening.

    An excerpt from Globe and Mail opinion article:" …Those regions and constituencies that voted “Leave” are precisely those that have the most to lose. As research from the University of Groningen and the Centre for European Reform found, the British regions most dependent on the EU for their well-being are not London and its wealthy environs (which have economic relations beyond Europe), or Scotland, but rather the rural areas and mid-sized cities of Europe, whose entire economic basis is Brussels-centred and has no market or support without Brussels. “There is a positive correlation,” they found, “between a region’s level of economic integration with the EU and that region’s Euroskepticism.” Further, the Leave-voting classes and regions are those that will be most devastated by the post-Brexit recession and fiscal crisis.

    The second fallacy is that this has something to do with “immigration” – which, polls show, was the largest motivation for “Leave” voters (the great majority of whom live in districts where there is little or no immigration).

    The brown people in Britain’s cities – who were the subjects of UKIP Leader Nigel Farage’s scare stories of sexual predation – aren’t immigrants; their grandparents mainly arrived as British subjects carrying UK passports. Refugees from Syria and alarming hordes camped out in Calais have nothing to do with the EU. The French who’ve started hundreds of businesses in London, the Polish who have given new life and prosperity to Britain’s trades – they do stand to lose. So do the two million Britons who live and collect benefits elsewhere in the EU.

    Britain didn’t attract other Europeans because of the EU, but because it had an economy to which they could contribute.… "http://www.theglobeandmail.com/opinion/remember-the-brexit-as-the-moment-when-xenophobia-won/article30609024/

    Wake up Republicans: Trump wants to cripple globalization to help implement the plans of Russia and China because they want to kill western power and democracy. Your candidate is un-American
