Every once in a while, we see things in elections that give me hope for the future. They're very rare but thank God they still happen. Now if only Americans can follow with another message against the totalitarian left in 2020, that would be great.

Biden says UK elections a cautionary tale for far-left Democrats in America
Joseph Simonson

Joe Biden told supporters at a San Francisco fundraiser that the Labour Party's landslide defeat in the United Kingdom is a warning to the Democratic Party in the United States not to slide too far left.

“Boris Johnson is winning in a walk,” the former vice president said Thursday, referring to the U.K.'s prime minister and leader of the Conservative Party. Biden also said he predicted headlines would say, “Look what happens when the Labour Party moves so, so far to the Left. It comes up with ideas that are not able to be contained within a rational basis quickly.”

Biden, 77, then added, “You’re also going to see people saying, 'My God, Boris Johnson, who is kind of a physical and emotional clone of the president, is able to win.'"

On Thursday evening, the Labour Party saw its lowest level of support since 1935, winning 205 seats in the 650-member Parliament, compared to 365 for Johnson's Conservative Party. The former leader of the party, Jeremy Corbyn, ran as an avowed socialist with a platform promising to nationalize a number of industries and raise taxes on the wealthy. He resigned shortly after the results were finalized.

Throughout the Democratic primary, Biden has routinely attacked Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Bernie Sanders of Vermont for their left-wing policies. Biden has told voters that he doesn't believe either candidate could pass most of their agenda through Congress, while also saying initiatives like "Medicare for all" are too costly and would require substantial tax increases on the middle class.

Neither of which has challenged their supporters to push ups or a fistfight

This is so good on so many counts for the USA, IMHO...Breaking up the EU is HIGHLY important for the US and I think the UK as they are better off without having to pander to their Overlords in the German speaking world or those whom they milk (i.e. the Greek, Italian, French, and Spanish EU Nation-states). Smart economically independent countries didn't join the EU fully as is the case with the UK and the Swiss, in particular, who are very financially savvy. Most American's don't understand that the EU bank simply wants control over all of Europe, at least financially (sound familiar?), and they make this attractive by offering up great projects like High Speed rail in Italy and Spain as well as lending money expecting to be paid back in spades like they did to Greece for the Olympics......subsequently these countries end up owing tons of money that they can't afford pay back and end up overtaxing their local populace...thus the banks end up, basically, owning these countries as their populace is reduced to dependence. The UK has traditionally seen through this socialist give and grab back handout scam BUT I was worried that the positive force of their power had totally passed them by due to their self hatred based on socialist educational upbringing...FINALLY they seem to be seeing the light! Trump is not wrong that the UK will actually profit from this just like we will...they will once again be given the opportunity to be a leader in the World independently of Europe rather than a follower of the recent strong arm money lending banking tactics of the EU regarding all forms of issues that shouldn't be related (like Immigration and protection of ones own independence).

Three Cheers for Boris! Hip! Hip! Hooray!

With the Euro Green Deal announced yesterday the EU will try to foce the environmental views on any country that wants to trade with them and then implement a Carbon Equalization tariff on imports. I think this will hurt their international trade goals immensely...but the whole policy may be a protectionist racket from the start.

The EU GDP shrinks by 17% the day the UK exits and all that's left is Germany (which isn't a consumer culture) and the French (whose people are taxed so heavily many can't afford gas/food at the end of the month) as 1/3 of the post Brexit Economy of 27 nations. The EU can't expand enough to offset the loss of the UK economy.

And now Britain is a threat:
https://news.yahoo.com/eu-warns-post-brexit-rival-britain-johnson-win-150128383.html

Brussels (AFP) - European leaders warned Friday that Britain could become a formidable rival, just hours after a big victory by Prime Minister Boris Johnson's conservatives all but sealed the UK's Brexit divorce.

But the EU chiefs, meeting in Brussels, also expressed relief that British voters had sent a clear message, bringing to an end the first phase of a crisis that has dogged Europe for more than three years.

Led by France and Germany, EU member states said they would pursue a swift trade deal with a tight deadline of end 2020, but insisted that any new arrangement must uphold European values and norms.

"There is no question of concluding a deal at any price," EU Council President Charles Michel told a news conference after the talks.

"Negotiations are over when the results are balanced and guarantee respect for the different concerns," the former Belgian premier said.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned that Britain would be an economic "competitor at our door" after it leaves the EU and French President Emmanuel Macron saw a threat that London would become an "unfair competitor".

This reflects concern that Britain could become a kind of "Singapore on Thames", a trading hub where multinationals can gain access to the EU's huge market without playing by its rules.

I think becoming a "Singapore on the Thames" would be an admirable goal.
