    Did Mr. Farage go home? I have not heard.
    or
    is he now in hiding seeking political asylum?

    Correction. After the last Parliamentary election Mr.Farage is the leader of a grand total of 2 MPs out of 650. He is about as important as Donald Trump.

    Like Trump does, Farage made Brexit promises that were not true and he could not keep. These two men have similarities, and none of them are good.

    This is isn't the first time a current of right wing nationalism surged in Europe. A similar phenomenon occurred in the 1920s and 30s when the populations of Germany, Italy, and Spain were growing discontented with existing establishment politics.

    The EU for Britain was taxation w/o representation. When Britain was in the EU, local British Fishermen were not allowed to fish in their own waters. Well now Britain has regained rights to its waters and if the EU wants fish from Britain they'll have to buy it.

    I think other EU nations will follow Britain's lead. All those bureaucrats in Brussels ruling the EU will have to find honest work.

    How long can a nationalist movement continue calling itself nationalist when it’s obviously an internationalist echo? This rise of so-called right wing nationalism has been sweeping Europe for a couple of years now. If America bucks the trend with a hard left turn, how might these interlopers react to our suddenly shining city on a hill?

    Hey summarizer -

    "Plenty had plenty bad to say about Brexit but now...what do you hear? I hear nothing. I hear crickets."

    Well, that's because the hype comes BEFORE the big game, not after.

    The votes have been tallied. The people have spoken, and the Brexit is in progress. Now it is time for the British people to suffer from all that Conservative wisdom as their nation detaches from the EU . . . No more juicy EU perquisites . . . No more benefits of membership.

    "People had plenty to say about it for a week but then things settled down and rationality won out over fear."

    Most of the Brexit has not even begun yet. It's not like snapping your fingers. Europe and the British are removing themselves from each other, and the process will take some time. By the Lisbon treaty, it will take a MINIMUM of two years.

    Most of the pain the British will feel has not even begun yet.

    "What Britain did was to do what is best for themselves."

    . . . So says you. But then again, you think Trump would be suitable as President of the United States, don't you?

    The Brit's voted to leave the EU -- yes the Obama / Clinton supported one-world goverment agenda. Once again Trump is on the RIGHT SIDE of the issue and history and Obama/Clinton are on the wrong side and are being rejected by the Brit's.

    No one knows what exactly will come because of Brexit. There was much Doom and Gloom spread about it even from our own President.

    What Britain did was to do what is best for themselves. The US should take a similar approach.

    I am simply amazed. Now all these Republicans want the illegal aliens deported. I'm a comment back in 2004 repeatedly about getting rid of all the illegal aliens. Republicans called me racist. They sure enjoyed making money off of these people. Now they want them gone. We can only blame Republicans and their Greed for the illegal alien problem that we have. Please remember George Bush's first trip out of the United States was to Mexico. He was negotiating the safe travel of legal and illegal labor into the United States to support the growth. Republicans got what they wanted cheap labor and broke a lot of unions all because they wanted the illegal aliens to drive down the cost of Labor. I'm not at all surprised that Trump is teamed with other racist organizations to drive out illegal aliens. Let's not forget that over a hundred thousand Irish are here illegally and they too will be deported

    The Brexit was a losing move for Britain. And now Trump says we can do the same thing right here.

    We KNOW that.

    That is another reason why sensible people are NOT voting for Trump.

    And Hillary Clinton is going home to the White House where she belongs.

    What's that? Donald Trump got the endorsement of the former leader of a party with a grand total of one member of the House of Commons?

    Stop the presses!
