Pictured here is Big Ben in London from a family photo album of years gone by. It is a landmark representative symbol of Britain and British sovereignty, something which has been seriously eroded since the United Kingdom opted to join the European Union. And in case you're not aware of the current goings on related to the EU in the UK these days, the British citizenry will go to the polls this upcoming Thursday to decide whether or not they want to remain in the EU or opt out. The "Leave" movement (hashtag #Brexit) which supports return to full British sovereignty, appears to be in the lead at the moment and if that holds true, it will truly be a modern day "shot heard 'round the world" concerning individual national sovereignty and independence.
Why does this hold significance for we Americans? The answer is that it will show the movement to return to sovereignty for the nation, a concept with wide support here, is also strongly present in the UK and growing in other European nations as well. The desire to maintain our sovereignty is strong among Americans since it naturally opposes United Nations "refugee migration" decisions made under the guise of the New World Order or world governance. Both the UN and the EU appear to be joined at the hip on just such issues.
If our British brothers and sisters pull the world's fifth largest economy out of the overbearing EU, the movement will likely gain further ground quickly throughout Europe which is seeing cultures destroyed by the unaccountable EU bureaucrats. Today Britain is subjected to a legal system in Brussels which is responsible for approximately sixty percent of the laws to which citizens are held accountable, a process which includes immigration law. And these very laws are adjudicated by an international court system not based in their homeland, clearly a huge step toward the absolute end of any concept of national sovereignty.
The similarity to the things accepted and pushed by Prime Minister Cameron's government clearly closely parallel the idea of an international governance which the American President and so many Washington politicians support. And things like unpublished trade deals and lack of borders and sovereignty which don't provide any valid reasoning for American support by the citizenry have brought forth the current American distaste for international overreach and control. These are the very reasons for the birth of the Trump movement and if Britain approves #Brexit, the push for major change and overhaul will only grow larger here, likely benefiting Trump.
Stay tuned as we watch for the results on Thursday and the aftermath therefrom. National sovereignty should never be granted to a world body, much of which is run and supported by tyrannical nations. And wouldn't it be a pleasant surprise if our old master from over two hundred years ago leads the way. Go Britannia, make Britain proud again by controlling your own destiny and setting a marker for other democracy-loving nations as well. We need to continue to grow that spirit here as well.
