The liberty principle for this Freedom Friday concerns the fact that mortals long to be free. The people of Great Britain voted themselves out of the European Union in an effort for Britain to be governed by Britain.
Michael Goodwin at the New York Post writes, “Revolutions are a leap into the unknown and require the right mix of outrage, determination and leadership. They are testament to the ethos of an entire country and culture when they succeed without a shot being fired.
“That’s the beauty of Brexit, and of grand old England. The people spoke, they were heard, and the wheel of history is turning. Let’s get on with it.
“It took a revolution because the leaders of both of Britain’s major political parties united in opposition to change, with the pooh-bahs and grandees trying to scare voters into sticking with the status quo. Naturally, the establishment media lectured the rubes on what was good for them.
“Sound familiar, America?”
To me, it sounds exactly like what is happening in America. We are led by two major political parties whose leaders are not willing to listen to Americans. They continue to use scare tactics to keep their sheeples in line.
Nile Gardiner at The Daily Signal claims that “Britain outside the EU will be a stronger ally for the United States.” He also says the Brexit vote “signals a new era of freedom for the British people…. Great Britain has declared its independence…. The vote for Brexit … is a vote for sovereignty and self-determination.”
The people in Britain have thrown off a heavy yoke of government. I wonderful if the American people will be smart enough to do the same.
