The Great Global Conservative Awakening
It started with Brexit. That led to Trump. Now we have the French Prime Minister Manuel Valls coming out today saying that unless European countries lower taxes, stimulate growth and jobs, and pay more attention to the needs of the people, more countries will leave the EU and European Union "will fall apart".
We are watching the start of what I call the "Great Global Conservative Awakening". There are around 6 more countries that will be voting over the next year or so, and "populist" movements are taking hold and growing rapidly in every one of them. Just like what happened in the USA with Trump. This awakening is a return to policies that work FOR THE PEOPLE and a rejection of the 40-60 years of policies of the Liberal Elites that seems to work only to enrich those that put themselves on an arrogant pedestal of all knowing government power, policies that have failed the people miserably. The Liberal Leftists decades long attempt to literally rule the world as a ruling class of arrogant bureaucrats is coming to an end. Their strategy was, in summary, to have the EU and the UN run the world and to eventually have world dominance. Obama loved this, since he already used the UN to get his Iran Treaty done without getting approval from US Congress, an outright end-around of the US Constitution which clearly states that any treaties with foreign countries MUST be approved by Congress. Rather than take a treaty or bill to Congress, it has been this arrogant Presidents modis operandi to simply issue Executive Orders and go around Congress and the Constitution.
Even now, the Left is still trying to get a small arms treaty through the UN that will supercede the US Constitution and restrict/limit/eliminate our Constitutional 2nd Amendment rights. Looks like that's not going to happen now that Trump, a staunch Constitutionalist, is going to be the 45th President. It was announced today that Obama is issuing literally thousands of pages of regulatory executive orders daily as we approach the end of his term, all of which will have to be reviewed and most tossed out, I'm sure.
These Leftist Elites all around the world have taxed the people too much. They have destroyed their jobs in America and Europe and left massively large percentages of French, German, and American people out of work and tied to the government's social welfare programs for survival. What they have missed is that people don't want to be on welfare. They want to be independent and FREE. It's inside of us as human beings. This desire for freedom is so strong that men and women have, for centuries, been willing to die for it. If the choice was to live as a slave to the government, or be free, millions all over the world have chosen to die...if it was in the name of freedom. Governments by the Leftist Elites DO NOT promote individual freedom. They promote slavery and they don't work FOR THE PEOPLE. This is what French Prime Minister Manuel Valls is saying. He is giving a very strong and valid warning to members of the EU...Listen to the people, give them jobs, lower taxes, boost defense and handle terrorism, and you may avert an uprising and outright overthrow. Fail to do so, and things as they know them in Europe will begin to fall apart very soon.
He's very right.
12-29-16 UPDATE: The leading candidate in Canada is a "Trrump-like" conservative woman named Kellie Leitch, age 46. She has vaulted to the front of the race to lead the opposition Conservative party, pushing a hard right agenda that taps into the Canadian populations frustration with a sluggish economy (like that under Obama) and the acceptance of 37,000 Syrian refugee's into Canada.
