Perhaps the ultimate achievement of liberal progressive politicians in 20th century Europe was the establishment of the EU. Fed up with borderless nation states, unrestricted immigration, multi-culturalism and regional economic integration, a narrow majority of British voters, comprised mostly of older working class, less educated citizens, decided that Great Britain will exit the EU. There will surely be more votes like Brexit in other EU countries in the near future. The future of the EU is now certainly in question, and with it the future of the liberal progressive political movement.
The dissatisfaction with established liberal progressive politicians is also being manifested in America, as evidenced by the Trump phenomenon. The 2016 presidential election is shaping up to be a vote on whether America should exit from the liberal progressive movement which has dominated American politics for most of the last 100 years. Commonsense tells me that such an exit is more likely than not, probably also by a narrow margin similar to Brexit.
Commonsense also tells me that the new majority, however narrow, will not break along traditional political party lines. The new majority will stretch across a broad spectrum of citizens fed up with political correctness, unrestricted immigration, underemployment , runaway national debt, military indecision against radical Islamic terrorism and, most importantly, the establishment politicians on both sides of the aisle who have created the mess.
Good Day! Better Days are coming soon!
