Doing the right thing is never easy. I tip my hat to the people of the UK for doing the right thing anyway, and hopefully setting an example for the
rest of the world.
As a result of their decision to leave the EU, Britain's future financial health is uncertain. Some would say a pessimistic outlook in the near term
is warranted, and I would tend to agree given what has happened to the value of the pound today, among myriad other things.
So I thought, What can I, an average American Joe, do for our friends across the pond that have seen the light and rejected globalism? For
they who have stared into the abyss and been delivered?
Because, contrary to what our "leaders" may say or insinuate, many, many
Americans applaud Britain's decision and want to show our support.
How can we show our support? Well, we can help where help is needed. If Britain is going to take a hard economic hit, let's help them out
Buy something British.
Several years ago I went into a recording studio and came out of the session "missing" a foot switch for my amplifier. I've delayed replacing it
for years, as I haven't really needed it due to a lack of playing live.
It's made by an English company. You may have heard of it before. I think today would be a good day to order my replacement:
And I'm buying it from a British retailer too.
Should we bomb England with money? If that's what they need, advocates of state decentralization stand at the ready to assist.
Anyone else have ideas on how we can help our friends weather the economic storm that's coming? I know my small contribution to the UK economy means
nothing, but it's the least I can do.
Bravo, Britons. Bra-VO!
