I am absolutely thrilled at the magnificent Brexit result from across the pond! While the way ahead will not be quick or easy, the United Kingdom can now once again be a fully independent country. So very proud of all my Vote Leave friends in the UK who worked so hard for this victory and wish I could celebrate with them. We have proved that the arrogant "experts" who care little for what real people love can be defeated. I never thought I would say this, but my respect for the democratic process and the British public has been restored. Rule Britannia and God Save the Queen!
In my adult lifetime there have been three major referendums in the
English-speaking world, all of which I wished I could have voted in
(though few if any people could have voted in all three): Australia
1999, Scotland 2014, and Britain 2016. Incredibly, all three have now
gone the way I wanted, though tonight's is the most surprising as it was
the only one of the three in which I backed the anti-status-quo side.
Maybe I am not so alone in this world politically after all. Maybe one
day elsewhere in the world we will even see a successful referendum to
restore a fallen monarchy!
