I applaud the people of Great Britain for standing up for freedom.
America is a representative republic. The U.S. Constitution gives very limited power to centralized government. Those powers not explicitly granted to the centralized government by the Constitution belong to the states and therefore, the people. Unfortunately, our current and previous socialist/fascist governments have infringed mightily on that historical truth.
By creating the European Union (EU), Britain and the rest of Europe entered into an unholy alliance. Nothing within the EU charter delegates powers back to the individual nations (States) nor to the citizens of those nations. In fact, the opposite is true. The EU assumed dictatorial power over all of the European nations and their people.
The EU represents a clear example of the creation of big government, allowed by uninformed, lazy, complacent citizens. The amount of power assumed by the EU is nearly infinite, with little if any safeguards.
Power breeds more power. Europeans haven’t learned from generations—even centuries—of catastrophes created by dictators.
Britain did the right thing. We hope other European nations follow suit.
More importantly, we hope that Americans will eventually stand up against the same usurpation of power committed by our own socialist/fascist government.
