People around the world are sick and tired of the status quo. They
are sick and tired of the overly political correctness and the way that the
system is attempting to control every aspect of our lives. You can see this
growing wave of discontent from the ever-growing amount of politicians getting
elected around the world with a nationalist ideology.
An increasing mass of people is sick and tired of the welfare
state that has been created around us and want to get back to good, honest
work - the type of hard effort and commitment that made the West the most
prosperous nation in the world. Sadly, over the last few decades a growing
portion of the population has gotten lazy and have expected more and more from "daddy"
The government has been overjoyed with this fact, as it has allowed
them to expand endlessly, creating more and more justification for their
existence and increasing their power over we, the people.
No more! That's right, no more! The tide is starting to shift, the
pendulum swung too far and now it is starting to return back to the center. The tools that the government used to "shame" us into walking
in step are no longer working and the curtain has been pulled back.
As I stated, you can see this happening all over the Western
world, slowly, but surely. The most recent example that we can point to is the
popularity of Donald Trump and his national agenda. This proves that a growing
portion of those in the United States are sick and tired of what is being spoon-fed to them.
Yet, an even more immediate and important example can be found in Britain, where the people will be voting very soon on "Brexit". Up
until recently, the polls have shown that more people were in favor of staying
in the EU than leaving. The government propaganda was working, but has now been
chipped away as the facts of how it is destroying those countries partaking can
no longer be ignored.
Now, the polls are showing something entirely different. Those in
favor of leaving the EU have exploded and they now enjoy a
massive 19 point lead! If you follow polling at all, you
will know that this is a stunning lead, and one that has the establishment
shocked in disbelief.
What is even more heartening for liberty lovers around the world
is the fact that only a short while ago, this lead was only 10 points, pointing
to the fact that this movement has momentum and at a key time before the votes
Barring any funny business (which I would not rule out), it
appears that Britain will be once again gaining its independence and shedding
their un-elected overlords in Brussels.
This victory is being speculated to push gold to new heights, as
it is going to lead to short-term uncertainty while the markets prepare for the
unknown. However, I know for certain that it is going to lead to long-term
prosperity from both a freedom perspective and an economic one for the people
Let's hope the trend remains the same. Let's hope that the people
do what is right and that liberty will reign the world over.
