How will the #Brexit success effect U.S. politics?
The fact that these two men might become world leaders gives me the sneaking suspicion that God hates Mitt Romney. pic.twitter.com/A3z5KvVbVe

News flash: The revolt against elites is real in the UK and America and it’s only getting started. Maybe there will always be an England.
Answer: Those same elites had convinced each other they would win and therefore convinced the usual suspects—media, pollsters and, sadly, financial markets—that they were right. They were wrong. Watching them now on the BBC they still cannot comprehend what has happened. The peasants have revolted—oh no, oh no. There must be some mistake. Didn’t they get the memo? The sky would fall if they left the EU.
Earth to elites: Citizens of truly democratic countries don’t want unlimited immigration into their countries by people who couldn’t be less interested in democracy. They also don’t want to be governed by the rules and regulations of faceless bureaucrats whose not-so-hidden goals are power and riches for themselves and their friends. Simple, isn’t it?
This vote is of immense help to Donald Trump if he is smart enough to seize it properly and doesn’t bobble the ball. Many, probably most, Americans feel exactly the same as their brothers and sisters across the pond. They despise the same elites and want to save their country. Trump, now fortuitously in Scotland (I know—they voted Remain, but not in the numbers they were supposed to), should show his support. The UK is America’s closest ally. We should be the first to extend a hand, negotiate free trade, etc., and get her rolling again.
That most elite of presidents, Barack Obama, who opened his morally narcissistic mouth supporting the Remain side and warning the British people, as he is wont to do, that there would be “consequences” if they voted to leave the EU, is in no position to do anything, even if he wanted to. And he doesn’t.
Hillary Clinton is so elitist she practically defines the term. She was probably up all night figuring out what to do about the situation. I have a suggestion—move to Brussels.
Meanwhile, Trump should take up the gauntlet for the U.S. and the UK now. Why wait? Act like the president—we could use one. Donald has a natural ally in the leading Leave spokesperson conservative Boris Johnson. The two men are said to be similar and in many ways they are. […]
And the American left is pissing themselves … Well, ya know, “HITLER!”:
@sallykohn do you have a brain, the people weakening the power of a central gov't is just the opposite of your "so much this"..wow

Who in the US is ‘cheering’ the #BrexitVote? Shaun King has it figured out … Fake “African-American”
Looks like the main people in the United States who are cheering on #Brexit are racists, conservatives, and white supremacists.

Holy crap, we've raised an entire generation who are terrified of not being ruled over.

Collective ‘globalism’ “New World Order” types are popping antacids…
Anti-Brexit reaction-we are emotional-uneducated-lowIQ and many are old voters-which presumably disqualifies them from the human race

@redsteeze We can't have a president who is constantly golfing during a crisis! Oh, wait

Apparently ‘self-induced-lame-duck’ PM Cameron’s liberal butt hurt smells like this … He’s warning the Brexit will make the fight against ISIS weaker. Uh-huh… The Brits were sick of the EU’s centralized dictatorship dictating their economy. Now, with the tsunami of “refugees” flooding the EU (Germany in particular), with more waves to come, countries like Hungary have closed their borders. But how long before the centralized EU ‘mandates’ countries take in X amount(s) of ‘refugees’? Places like the UK have their own festering problems with their immigrant Muslim population and the Brit government (all levels) appeasing anti-British culture Muslim/Sharia pressures within the country. So, Cameron, exactly how does detaching your country from the sinking ‘open borders to all/any “refugees”… who happen to be loaded with ISIS-ops’ PC-plagued EU ‘weaken’ the fight?
