The British People Have Spoken and They’re OUT of the European Union

At 11:40 PM ET, the BBC forecasted victory for the movement for Britain to exit the corrupt, bureaucratic and controlist European Union, predicting a final margin of 52% to 48%.

Leader of the UKIP, the UK Independence Party, Nigel Farage, gave nothing short of a victory speech, roughly 30 minutes prior to the declaration, but with votes definitely trending towards the “LEAVE” vote to exit the Union, a process known as Brexit (British exit).

BBC reported that a very high turnout of 72 percent is causing the “LEAVE” vote to lead the “REMAIN” by over 800,000 votes.

“If the predictions are right, this will be a victory for real people, a victory of ordinary people, a victory for decent people,” Nigel Farage shouted, optimistic of tonight’s historic vote — a vote that has been ironically compared to the U.S. declaring independence from Great Britain, without the bloodshed.

A fired-up Nigel Farage, whose UKIP party has often been compared to America’s pro-liberty, pro-Constitution Tea Party grassroots movement, continued…

“We have fought — We have fought against the multi-nationals, we’ve fought against the big merchant banks, we’ve fought against big politics. 

We’ve fought against lies, corruption, and deceit and today honesty, decency, and belief in nation, I think now is going to win!” 

“We will have done it without having to fight, without a single bullet being fired,” a proud Farage declared, noting that instead of using physical violence, the group achieved its goal with “damn hard work on the ground.”

The vote also comes as a crushing blow to Marxist U.S. President Barack Obama, who pushed for Britain to remain in the EU, so that his fellow one-world government globalists could maintain their stranglehold on Britain.

The vote thus far is a bit of a shock. The U.S. stock market soared 230 points on Thursday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average surpassing the 18,000 mark on the belief that the Brexit vote would fail, led by a belief that trade would do better if Britain stayed under control of their Brussels masters, Eurocrats.

BBC Europe correspondent James Reynolds noted that British Prime Minister David Cameron, who campaigned hard in favor of staying in the EU, may issue a bit of a poison pill to the British vote, known as “Article 50” of the European Union Treaty, which calls for two-years of negotiations before Britain can leave the EU.

Obviously, the financial markets got it wrong and the British people, who were fed up with a far away capitol controlling everything from monetary policy to immigration policy, have a historic victory for the British people.

The landmark vote is also a major win for self-governance and self-determination, a unique concept brought to the world by America’s wise Founding Fathers.
