MercurialMe WroteColonQr Bbpost What.
This has all made me take the threat of Trump much more seriously. I was toying with voting 3rd party (Green Party: Jill Stein) when it became clear Sanders wasn't going to become the Democratic nominee but now F*** that S***! I'll vote Clinton, eat my vegetables & say my prayers in the desperate hopes the orange terror doesn't get his tiny hands on the arguably most powerful position in the world.
I do NOT want progressive voters crying on TV saying: I didn't know my vote would count. Or Americans in general Googling the next day "What's the difference between the government & reality TV".
Thank you for answering one of my questions. I do know what the EU is I just wasn't sure title-wise what was going on with Britain after the exit.Black Milk WroteColonQr Bbpost Britain is still European, it's just no longer a member of the EU, which is an economic, Political & social alliance.
Well...actually it's still a member of the EU until it enacts article 50....which it may never do...so...
Brexit won because people aren't represented in politics, so they did the opposite of what politicians told them to do, Brexit won because there are "liberals" that think a "protest vote" is a thing, Brexit won because the media fully indulge extremist views because it sells more than facts, Brexit won, because fascism is growing in power all across Europe, racism too, just as much as it is in the US if not more so. Brexit is a symptom of the times we live in, and honestly, these are pretty scary times.
Something that doesn't seem to be getting any attention outside of my Island, *if* the UK exits the EU, and *If* Northern Ireland (who voted to stay) goes with them, that means the reintroduction of military borders & the "Good Friday Peace Agreement" essentially thrown out the window, literally talking about war here.
So while the rich shuffle for power, people are going to suffer one way or another.
Yeah he's a prime example of: be careful what you wish for. He's tanked any & all hopes he ever had of becoming PM. That's at least some justice in all this.SapphireDreams WroteColonQr Bbpost One upside is that Nigel Farage (who is a Member of European Parliament and campaigned for us to leave the EU, yeah, I know!) is now out of a job, and he's resigned as leader of Ukip and now wants to work in Europe! Ha! Good luck matey!
Red_Ink_Cat WroteColonDo not be afraid of Trump.
That is what they want. Britain left the EU over fear.
There's more reason why Brits are angry.
