Your American pal is a fool. UK was never a slave of the EU. If it had been it would have been forced to use the euro, they would not have had representation in Brussels, nor would the PM been able to negotiate a new deal with the EU months before the referendum.
But good news leaving means they will more then likely have to still have to follow a lot of EU rules about immigration and free movement of people to stay in the EU trade market, while loosing the voice they had in Brussels.
