Democracy and socialism have nothing in common but one word, equality. But notice the difference: while democracy seeks equality in liberty, socialism seeks equality in restraint and servitude. ~Alexis de Tocqueville
It’s true that I’m a proud American, but I have great respect for our “cousins” across the Pond. They were intrepid warriors whether in uniform or as civilians during WWII. My late parents … who were solid conservatives and loved history … often shared what they learned about the Brits fight against Hitler’s maniacal monsters. The London Blitz of 1940 were night raids which forced average Brits into the subway tunnels with their families to sleep … when the bombings were over for the night, often around 4:30 AM, they would come out from the subway tunnels/stations and go to work.
A resolute and undaunted people. Those are the TRUE roots of the former British Kingdom.
This is not what is on display today in the UK. Not in the politicians or the media. All but a few forthright Brits, who are cut from courageous cloth, are standing up for this once magnificent nation. Not what the Left here in the States like to call the one percenters, but ordinary blokes (and birds) holding strong and fighting the current wave of appeasement washing over their Government.
This valiant group includes: Kev Carroll/Tommy Robinson of the EDL (English Defense League), Gavin Boby of the Law and Freedom Foundation, and Paul Weston of the Liberty GB Party. They have watched their Members of Parliament acquiesce to an ideology that treasures nothing but the blood of innocence and the subjugation of all those infidels who refuse to convert to their totalitarian Barbary. A dictatorial and oppressive ideology that produces, when followed devoutly, a gaggle of thieves, palterers, sex-offenders and cold-blooded murderers.
But I don’t believe these men are alone in their stand. I believe that Britain … and the UK … has myriad liberty-lovers who do NOT want their nation to fall to a backward, 7th century dogma.
