I don’t have a vote in Thursday’s referendum on whether the UK will leave the European Union, but I wish I did. Sadly, our Revolutionary forefathers decided to breakup with England in the traditional “American way” with guns and violence. In fact, our bold Colonial behavior was not even protected by the Second Amendment.
Fortunately, our Revolutionaries didn’t need assault weapons to deal with the over-matched Red Coats.
As the Brexit referendum and U.S. primaries suggest: Democracy is somewhat overrated – i.e the governing establishment doesn’t like it. Hopefully, common sense will prevail, but they don’t teach common sense or cursive writing in U.S. schools anymore. Viva la Revolución!
