Privately, I’ve made the questionably portentous prediction that if the UK voted themselves out of the
European Union on June 23, 2016 (Brexit), Donald Trump would become the 45th President of the United States of America.
After many doubts the “unthinkable” happened. Over 51% of voters in the UK voted to leave the EU and the markets shuddered with uncertainty. We’re standing over an uncharted chasm. Barring any last minute “reprieves,” we’re about ready to jump in face first. Nobody can correctly say what’s going to happen next but the world as you and I knew it for the past few decades has been changed.
If you like Trump, the Brexit vote should thrill you. If you find Trump to be a repulsive worm, you should be very worried.
The main problem with the opposition is that their presumptive leader, Hillary Clinton, is too loaded of a question for the electorate to process in any sort of rational manner. Seriously…name two friends of yours that really like Hillary Clinton.
Pshaw to all the hogwash about her foes being misogynistic Neanderthals who’d rather vote in a raving Madman than see a female behind the desk in the Oval Office. The damning shame is that Clinton has blood on her hands in more ways than one. Millions of dollars in speaking fees from the likes of Goldman Sachs is well enough to raise an eyebrow or two on Main Street whether Debbie Wasserman-Schulz wants to believe it or not. Back in the day they called it bribery. In addition, while Trump’s rough manner in the media has soured many potential voters, the sight of Hillary gruesomely guffawing over Gadaffi’s rape death (“We came, we saw, he died!”) on national TV is frankly on another level.
And this is the candidate they want to push in front of Donald Trump. A man who never met a verbal gaffe he didn’t like. A man who single-handedly destroyed the Bush dynasty and the neocon-fueled GOP in one fell swoop on live TV. A man who single-mindedly blows thru his opponents like paper dolls. And the Democrats want to put their lucre on a bloodthirsty, dynastic aristocrat in an attempt to quell a populist revolt. Let them eat cake indeed.
I predicted that Trump would win if the UK voted ‘Out’…but that could all change if the Democrats put their historical ambitions on hold for a season and put out a competitive candidate proven to snag the votes to compete…like, oh, I don’t know…Bernie Sanders. It’s a rough pill to swallow but at this point, any candidate would be a better choice for Democrat supporters. Otherwise get used to a new era of Nationalism. And don’t forget that the ‘Leave’ contingent in the UK conceded defeat just a few hours before claiming victory.
