Well, with the new status updates in the "New" dA page... is this Shoutbox thing obsolete?

Been about a year and a half since anyone posted anything here... folks, is anyone looking at the Shoutbox, or has Twitter made it redundant?

Political Rant 2 by JakeMcCormick

:flaguk: United States of America JIMMYDIMPLES dA JOURNAL POLITICAL RANT. United States of America :flaguk:

I honestly hadn't had much thought on the "Brexit" -- the UK's vote to leave the European Union.  My general policy on it was:  not my circus, not my monkey.  I'd met my share of foreign teachers thinking they had the right to dictate or even vote on what the USA should do.  I don't wish to extend that discourtesy to the world at large.  The UK's decision is the UK voters' alone.

Still, obviously by the title and the silly cartoon graphic above, I've got my thoughts and opinions on it.

It seems that more and more, unity is out and fracturing and factions are in.

The Democratic party's split up.  The Republicans are split up.  Everything seems to be a wedge:  race, faith, creed, the way you swing, the state where you live... it's truly unsettling.  Heck, not quite long enough ago, Scotland missed the vote to leave Great Britain by that much.

There's precious little pulling us together, if anything.  

But I admit I have a nagging question:  pulling us together into what?

I enough Britons got a good hard look into the EU, and what all's going on with immigration, Islamic extremists, economies going belly up, and the more profitable nations getting socked for the bill for it all (Germans have repeatedly complained on being "the schmucks of Europe") ... and enough of them figured they didn't want in that club any more.

And I have to admit, I can relate.  As a North Carolinean who's seeing his own traditional values and cherished virtues being scoffed at, sneered at, and decried as hate, I'm starting to feel like an alien in my own country.

And I don't want to sound like an unhinged loon... but I've read the story of the Conch Republic, and know a little bit of Texas' history... and wonder... only if the worst comes to worst... if it's possible to secede where everything else has failed.

Jump off that bridge when we get to it, of course.  NOT before.
