We Need to Take Notes from Brexit

By Karen

Uninformed, nonthinking British voters’ bigotry was stoked by sleazy politicians. Next thing you know, they’ve tanked their economy, shredded their standing as a trusted, responsible ally, and sent worldwide stock markets into a tailspin.

That’s what happens when a country tries to make itself “great again” by being more unpredictable.

If Great Britain’s catastrophic Brexit from the European Union did nothing else, let it teach us some lessons before November so we don’t follow it down the crapper. We should learn…

A fact-challenged buffoon with a bad haircut isn’t your best source of information.

BorisJohnsonFormer London Mayor Boris Johnson (who could play “Dumb” to Trump’s “Dumber”) was a Brexit cheerleader, appealing to racism and selfishness. His personal agenda was apparently to oust current Prime Minister David Cameron (which he did) so he could have the job himself.

Google your homework BEFORE you vote.

When Brits woke up after their Brexit celebration, their money was worth less and their stock market in free-fall, with recession predicted to follow. THAT’S what made them Google, “What does it mean to leave the EU?” and “What is the EU?”

The answers made them start a petition for a do-over.

When the situation unravels, don’t expect the buffoon to clean up his mess.

Once Great Britain’s economy and trade deals were reduced to rubble and other EU members want to kick the UK out on its arrogant arse pronto, Boris Johnson decided he didn’t want the PM job after all. So, buh-bye to any promises he made to halt immigration, save jobs, and replace all that ails England with “something terrific.”

Our own carrot-faced loudmouth is on track to tank our economy and revive massive unemployment when the many nations he’s already alienated tell him to stick his “art of the deal” on trade renegotiations straight up his ass. And perhaps, just for fun, he’ll drag our southern border states into a pointless war with Mexico over paying for a stupid wall.

And what will he do? He’ll blame Congress for everything and quit, if he’s not impeached first. And so will the hapless schmuck who ends up being his VP.

Don’t expect your so-called friends to stick around, either.

Northern Ireland and Scotland voted to remain in the EU, but England and Wales dragged them out, so they may secede from the UK. Against France, Germany, and 25 other EU countries, a diminished UK will have all the clout of Rhode Island as a voice in Europe’s destiny.

Never underestimate the power of ignorance.

Trump is cultivating an unthinking, fully-armed militia to do his bidding with violence. We’ve already seen it at his rallies. For example, if he decrees that Hispanics or Muslims belong in internment camps so they can be watched (like Roosevelt did to Japanese Americans during WWII), he’d just have to say the word. His supporters would gleefully put on their bedsheets, grab the ammunition, and kill more than they capture in the name of patriotism.

Britain has cut its own throat and may never recover. If we don’t stop Trump, the AmerExit he’s planning could easily turn into a bloodbath.

    SOME who voted 2 brexit were up to here with paying 3rd most into Brussels ineept bureaucracy & getting only onerous regs in return,,, Older mature voters voted out…I’m getting a new view. [hav u red how bad Brussels is? Where is Angela hers on this???]

    Xenophobic bigotry. clink did I just hear a nose cut off to spite face? Trump will lead us down this path so the stoopids can cheer while their economy tanks, their property devalues and their savings expire. But the c–ts that support him don’t care. They have no savings and will exist solely on the entitlements they forgot were democratic inventions like social security. But they WILL keep their guns and at least no Muslims, Mexicans or darkies will be able to get in. Trump must be defeated by a landslide or the USA will perish. Can I make it plainer?

    Morgan, exactly. Yesterday, Hillary Clinton gave a speech in front of Trump’s empty, failed hotel/casino in Atlantic City, a fitting backdrop for what he’ll do to the rest of the country in his quest for more personal wealth. Meanwhile, Trump gave a rambly, incoherent speech where he vilified and praised Saddam Hussein in the same sentence and called Hillary a “mosquito.” Huh?

    No surprise that a lot of the people he’s feeling out to be his VP don’t want the job. He’ll pick Christie or Gingrich (prob. Ging.) because they’ve got nothing to lose after blowing their own political careers.

    Grumpy, the EU may be a bureaucratic mess, but at least it keeps 27 countries from declaring war on each other. Would you like to see it completely fall apart and WWIII erupt? “Mature” voters is another name for those to resist all change, all the time. Younger voters, whom you might think would want unlimited freedom, voted to STAY IN the EU. Maybe they can actually see past their own noses.

    I watched the entire speech…tuned in and tried to tune out but was mesmerized…the mosquito, the repeating the Saddam thing, the explanation he predicted Brexit which was a reversal of a previous statement thst he knew nothing of the Brexit!!! The wild gestures the constantly referring to Newt another failed politician who left a few wives while very ill and cheated like Trump. about 10 to 12 deferments between them; so unmanly, pussy service avoiders and 3 wives each. Is this presidential?
    DEAR GOD AM I MENTAL? How is this even a discussion.

    Today we mourn 2 men killed by police and yet another massacre of 5 police officers by another lone rogue.
    Am I stoopid? If guns were more heavily regulated would the lone wolf massacres stop????
    More guns= more killing.
