They dodged the searchlights, the hounds, and the barbed wire. Now, they are on the loose… and we and others are planning our escape.
“Frexit!” say the French.
“Nexit!” say the Dutch.
“Ciao!” say the Italians.
“Texit” say the Texans.
“Italy may be next,” says the Financial Times, anticipating a crucial vote coming up in October.
Here in the U.S., “Texit” – independence for the Lone Star State – has already been proposed. Maryland’s elders have so far held their tongues. (They remember that the last time they spoke in favor of “Maryexit” Lincoln put them in jail.) But other states must be considering their options.
For now, the crowds are still small…
But with the celebration of Independence Day here, and with the smell of freedom in our nostrils… wafting o’er the great seas… the spirit of liberty is stirring. If we had our druthers, we would exit from almost everything. The U.S. would LEAVE the Mideast, NATO, the UN… and all the “foreign entanglements” General Washington warned us about.
At home, we would exit the War on Poverty and the War on Drugs. Then, Texas would withdraw gracefully from the United States. And we’re not finished.
But wait. There, standing at the prison gate, a Taser in one hand and a billy club in the other… is Hillary Rodham Clinton.
“Stronger together” is her new campaign slogan. “And more easily controlled,” she might add.
Hillary is the candidate of the status quo. She is the ultimate insider, the warden, the Deep State champion whose entire program consists of building out the massive citizen prison system set up by her husband, Barack Obama, and even helped along by George W. Bush.
Making a getaway is what Brexit is all about. But the British vote is not the end of the process. It is more likely just the beginning. If we can only break free from the Clinton/Obama globalists of the world.
