Doom! Destruction! Total anarchy in the streets! Wait a minute - the sun has risen and the world is still continuing on as per usual, granted with a few expected hiccups.
The people of the UK have voted and the sound of their voices has been carried to every corner of the globe. Democracy has won the day, proving that the people still have some power! They have voted to leave the bureaucracy-infested EU.
Bought and paid for politicians around the world have engaged in a campaign of fear for months, including President Obama and Hilary Clinton. They have scolded those who wish to regain their independence and told them that they would be sent to the " back of queue" if they were to leave the EU, crippling them economically.
Well, the people know this is a farce. The UK is still one of the most important economies in the world and is still one of the biggest financial hubs. This will continue on. To suggest otherwise is complete and utter ignorance.
The likes of Nigel Farage and others from the "leave" camp have fought for this very day most of their political careers, and have been scorned and ridiculed for doing so. Today they are vindicated. Today they are the victors.
The vote was close, with official numbers stating that 52% of the votes were for "leave" and 48% were for "stay". What is even more stunning is the historically high voter turnout at 71.8% - a monumental number.
Today, the markets are adjusting to this new reality. Gold is experiencing its best up day in the last seven years and the best up day when dominated in the British Pound in the last 42 years, up 15% overnight!
As the markets gyrate, so too does the political landscape. Prime Minister David Cameron has announced his resignation , as he strongly supported the "stay" camp and now faces humiliation. He has stated that "fresh" leadership is now needed.
Meanwhile, the bureaucrats in Brussels, the unelected officials who have lorded over the UK, are scrambling to contain the panic among their supporters and within their ranks.
The global elites know that this is a massive blow to their long term plans. They know that this is just the beginning and a tidal wave of nationalism and personal liberty is once again going to sweep across the globe. Those who cannot see this rising tide are either burying their heads in the sand or asleep at the wheel.
Today is one that should be celebrated. Today is the UK's independence day, a day of victory for the free people of the world and liberty lovers. Today is our day.
