We are living in a truly revolutionary time.
Despite all efforts by the MSM, by virtually all other establishment powers, and by all the Armageddon types, Great Britain and the UK have walked back their marriage to the EU. This is the peaceful version of what the South tried to accomplish in 1861. We were denied our wish for self-government, first expressed in Magna Carta, and the results have been nothing short of catastrophic for the entire world ever since.
Proponents of collectivists government would scorn me, but so what?
Government with the consent of the governed took a giant step forward in BREXIT. May lady liberty take many more steps, and not wait too long.
Lastly, as Jackie Gleason used to say, "How sweet it is!" The BREXIT vote, 150 years later and on a global scale, vindicated Jefferson Davis when he said, €œI am quite sure that the issues for which we contend will reassert themselves in future generations. The efforts to suppress this vindication are seen all around us, from the denigration of southerners, to the disregard for our traditions, our monuments, and especially in the vitriolic attacks on the Confederate Battle Flag and its praiseworthy supporters, the Virginia Flaggers.
BREXIT blows it all out of the water!
This is not the end of the conflict, but it may be the end of the beginning which started at Runny Meade, stepped forward at Yorktown, was temporarily crushed at Appomattox, but has now gathered up its skirts once again and stood tall at BREXIT.
I cannot believe (yes I really can!) that the headlines on our papers are not as bold as they were in declaring VE and VJ Days.
DEO VINDICE !

"A lot of people's grievances are coming out and we have got to start listening to them," said deputy Labour Party leader John McDonnell.
Indeed, the vote constituted a rebellion against the political, economic and social Establishment. All manner of groups -- CEOs, scientists, soldiers -- had written open letters warning of the consequences of an exit. Farage called the result "a victory for ordinary people against the big banks, big business and big politics."
