NATIONS ARE different, and that’s what makes them interesting.
I favor national identities and borders that keep them intact. The counter to this opinion is called globalism. Globalists want things to be all tossed together, no borders, where people can hold hands and sing Kumbaya at a moment’s notice.
If there’s an aroma of Patchouli, then all the better.
While I favor nations, I’m not too keen on government, which I think should be kept to a minimum everywhere. I’m a lowercase liberatarian.
Recently, I opened a Facebook page under my real name. Filling in the part about my political druthers, I tried to just put libertarian, but Facebook would not let me. It insisted I put Libertarian Nationalist.
I thought about it for a moment, and I realized I am a nationalist. I favor nations and borders. When I’m in the United States, I favor American nationalism. When I’m in Mexico, I favor Mexican nationalism.
I support a border wall between the United States and Mexico, and I support a border wall between Mexico and Guatemala. Walls make good neighbors.
Related to this is that many years ago the Europeans lost their collective minds and initiated the European Union, a globalist wet dream. Not surprisingly, it was the British who first came to their good senses and departed the EU cage.
In the video above, Nigel Farage, one of my favorite fellows, provides a beautiful description of how the despotic EU works, a description that is so clear that even a nincompoop can understand it.
I offer a tip of the sombrero to the Brits for leaving the EU, even though they only did it by a slim margin. No matter. It worked. With luck, other nations of Europe will get fed up with the EU and do the same thing. Let us pray so.
