Will the UK Write Freedom History?   2 comments

We are one week away from the EU referendum, the moment when the British people will be called upon to make a historic decision – will they vote to “Brexit” or to “Bremain”? Both camps have been going at each other with fierce campaigns to tilt the vote in their direction, but according to the latest polls, with the “Leave” camp’s latest surge still within the margin of error, the projected outcome is too close to call.

It is a rare moment in history. The British haven’t had their say since they voted to join the European Community back in 1975. What was initially thought of as a project to unite Europe into one common market, with benefits of free trade and great promises of increasing national wealth, has mutated into a completely different entity. The British have, instead, found themselves being dragged into a regional economy of zero growth and a weak Euro, and heavily indebted states. You may have come across the arguments of both camps, but here we wish to address what a “Brexit” or “Bremain” scenario would mean for Britain.

I haven’t said much about Brexit because — to be perfectly honest, I don’t think Americans should be telling the British how to conduct their affairs. I am thoroughly ashamed that the President of the United States threatened British voters. It was not his place to do that. King Obama needs to keep his mouth shut.

I feel the same sentiment going the other way, too. If Texas or Alaska decides to exit from the United States, Britain can send her good thoughts our way, but we don’t need her advice. David Cameron can hold all the views he wants to on the subject, but it’s not his place to tell us what to do.

As anyone who has read my blog should be able to guess, I am for Brexit. Short-run, it may have some negative fallout (though I’m not convinced that it will be worse than the negative fallout of remaining in an EU that appears to be spiraling out of control), but long-term, I think the UK will be rejoice that they were not still in the EU when the train goes over the cliff. Just taking a LONG historical view of things … it would appear that England is playing the same role the American colonies played 240 years ago. I’m not going to tell anyone how to vote, but I will say that the American separation from England worked out rather well for us. And, if they do it, then that re-invigorates the conversation on this side of the pond. The United States are going torn apart by the same stresses as the EU. Loosening the ties that bind us might to just want we need to save the nation as a whole. A return to federation might slow us before we reach that cliff.

This article does a good job of analysing both sides of the Brexit issue.
