the British, of all people, would instinctively understand that it is ultimately unacceptable to be governed by a foreign power who doesn’t respect your right to govern yourself from miles and miles away. Their exit is totally not surprising to me. Free people just won’t tolerate this kind of crap for long.
There is a lesson here, for anyone wise enough to learn. Local government works best, and the more local the better. We see that with the “Texit” folks.
THAT is why the founding fathers created a Federalist system. It was a hybrid system between all local and all central. But that system was dramatically weakened with the direct election of Senators (how did that even pass? It just makes no sense!). And we have seen Obama hasten its demise out of an irrational lust for power.
Do I really think Texas will leave? I strongly doubt it. But the fact that it is even being talked about should give Leftists great pause. And CA is talking about breaking up, as well. You would absolutely NOT be wise to just gaffe it off as the rantings of psychotics.
Something is definitely going on, here. We see that in the rise of Trump, rumblings of secession, talk of a CA breakup, total (and warranted) distrust of the MSM, hatred of the federal government, talk of creating a “Madison Fund” to protect/insure against the Federal Government, etc. Something’s up. You didn’t get this in 1990. If you can’t smell it in the wind, you need to get your sniffer checked.
