A lot of chatter in many places about the elections in the UK and the USA. A recurring refrain … โ€œIf the Brits can do it .. so can we.โ€

Just to remind my American friends that on pretty much anything that Britain does .. the US will likely do the opposite and always different .. even if they are the only ones on the world to do it โ€ฆ and absolutely having no regard for the consequences.

My recommendation? Keep focussed on what American voters need to do. You made your decision to break from the UK centuries ago, so who cares what we are doing?

Your choice later this year is one of two things.

  1. End your democracy and in turn empower the rest of the nut jobs around the world to do the same.
  2. Vote against that.

You the voter are in charge.

Still in doubt? I commend you to take a listen to Kara Swisherโ€™s ๐Ÿ”— ๐ŸŽ™๏ธ July 4th Special: Why Heather Cox Richardson Still Has Hope for American Democracy
