The UK has completely botched this Brexit thing from conception until now, to be honest. If the citizenry had known the actual facts instead of the agitprop from the rightwing they'd have chose to stay with the EU. I've read the UK can expect at least a 9% drop in their economy if the Brexit happens as the rightwing wanted.
The UK could open up trade deals with China, Russia, North Korea, Iran, Cuba, Valenzuela, Syria, etc.

You know what Carter said about the U.S. =

Jimmy Carter: US 'Most Warlike Nation in History of the World'
Former president says peaceful China 'ahead of us in almost every way.'
“Since 1979, do you know how many times China has been at war with anybody?” Carter asked. “None, and we have stayed at war.” While it is true that China’s last major war—an invasion of Vietnam—occurred in 1979, its People’s Liberation Army pounded border regions of Vietnam with artillery and its navy battled its Vietnamese counterpart in the 1980s. Since then, however, China has been at peace with its neighbors and the world.

Carter then said the US has been at peace for only 16 of its 242 years as a nation. Counting wars, military attacks and military occupations, there have actually only been five years of peace in US history—1976, the last year of the Gerald Ford administration and 1977-80, the entirety of Carter’s presidency. Carter then referred to the US as “the most warlike nation in the history of the world,” a result, he said, of the US forcing other countries to “adopt our American principles.”

America is run by white supremacists who think that they can tell everyone in the world what to do. We are the world's biggest bully.

What kept the citizenry from knowing? That is a poor excuse in this day and age imo. Either you honor the democracy or you do not
Hey, you willfully ignore the damage Trump does, what's your excuse? Farmers are finally waking up, why are you still asleep?

Farmers are losing patience with Trump’s trade war

Auto workers aren't too happy either. But hey, we're gonna stick it to China, right? Wrong, the Chinese government is way less accountable to their people than ours is. They'll stick it out. But you don't really much care what happens to our farmers, auto workers or anyone else for that matter, do you?

The GOP is setting themselves up for massive losses in 2020, much worse than what happened in 2018. Keep it up, please. Keep showing us just exactly who and what you are.

How do we remedy this? Should we all just hang are heads in guilt (white people only)? Should we immediately seek to begin coughing up reparations, from the wages of the citizenry to the world who feels they deserve it (most likely white people wages only)? How do you define a white supremacists?

Is this an example of white supremacist bullying?

America has invaded at least 70 countries and territories since 1776. No other country comes close to that record. We only think that we are the good guys because we control the propaganda. Germany would be wise not to tick us off or will will bite their butts again.
And since Roe vs. Wade the US has murdered over 60 million babies, that would have made even Hitler blush.

Yes, the Progressive era certainly has been a disaster for the US.

Luckily, Trump is the first President in a veeeeeeeeery long time not to start a war.

I'd like to argue with this, but I can't.
It's depressing to say the least.:(
