I think things are going to get bad --like a bitter divorce and heads will roll Brit style -- I also think it going to impact every nation associated -- turning my 401K into gold coins as we speak

It could be months or even years before the effects of Brexit ripple through the UK economy. Meanwhile back on the ranch the US POTUS elections are in about five months.

/s.

The people have spoken.
I would argue that Obama going over there, a foreign President, and doing his finger wagging chastising that he loves to do is most likely what pushed the LEAVES to a win.

How would Americans respond if Cameron came over here and told us "ya'll (remember Obama used a strictly English term (queue)) will be at the back of the line if you don't do as I say"

Talk about arrogance on display. Brit's were like "who the fk are you to tell us what we should or shouldn't do" ... and now we see he was covering Cameron's back and nothing more.

Yes the people have spoken and they told Obama and Cameron (in that order) to take a hike!

This is really bad for the establishment globalists, which Hillary is firmly a part of.

You are most likely right. Keep in mind that there is another referendum vote coming up for... Greece? 65% of France hate the EU, as do at least a few more countries including Sweden.

We could be witnessing the end of the EU

Brexit success has probably fired up the Texit movement.

It's the smart move. Cameron has many things, including integrity.

It's only complicated if EU-member States make it so. Remember that the EU was first and foremost a customs union, before it started getting stupid. There's no reason why Britain can't simply exit the political framework and remain in the customs union.

Norway and Switzerland do quite well, and neither are EU-member States.
