BREXIT, 12 Hours Later

Brexit is just the latest in an easily connected series of dots even here in the US, beginning with the Tea Party and going through the defeat of Congressman Eric Cantor, the taking of both Houses of Congress, the dumping of Boehner, and the rise of Donald Trump.
The natives, worldwide, are restless. They are tired of bureaucrats dictating, and they don’t believe they are being heard!

Can you hear me now?

BREXIT is a world changing shout, that has been ignored so long that the pressure cooker just let go in an explosion that cannot be ignored. In my blogs I have always supported BREXIT but never thought it could happen. I believed the polls. Wrong!

I have drawn the parallels between BREXIT and Prop 13, because in both cases the media, celebrities, politicians, and polls never supported that which the people supported, and everyone predicted doom — and in both cases, the people spoke.


Prop 13 turned out to be a boom not a bust. It remains to be seen how BREXIT turns out, but already those who predicted doom are sighing and saying they will muddle through — just as the politicians did in California after having their heads handed to them.

The recently released book “Flyover Nation: You Can’t Run a Country You’ve Never Been To” is about the same BREXIT sentiment here in the US, the fact that this nation is being run by graduates of Harvard and Yale, and THAT is NOT America. 

America is the Kansas University, Rice, Stanford! People in the middle of the nation, just as in Britain, are not being heard. In Britain the Micromanagers in Brussels are concerned about the use of hairdryers and in the US the Micromanagers are concerned about bathrooms!

In Britain, immigration drove the vote, and that is Trumpism’s central theme as well. The leaders in both nations are not listening to the people.

Pitchforks are being sharpened, tar heated and feathers plucked
