from the outside looking in I believe it's not going to be an easy process at all and like everything it has its pros & cons.

In the worlds current state and the way the EU works, the lack of border security is probably Britain's biggest threat. Leaving the EU will allow them to tighten up the borders and control who enters. As far as trade, agriculture, banks, etc.. boy they got a lot of work to do.

Scotland is already saying they want to stay in the EU and will do everything they need to to do so. You saw how fast the PM split.. that was probably the quickest fuck this exit ever after a major ruling in the gov..

Speaking with friends in England and Scotland, while not blind to the possible consequences of leaving, they're concerned about ceding ever more control to Brussels. I.e. not about the immediate course of the UK as much as who exerts control.

Scottish friend voted to leave because it keeps the door open for another push at independence.

Don't know nearly enough about how the EU works or the potential financial implications to comment whether it was a good idea or bad idea to get out. What I can't stand is the number of idjits on facebook (most of them my age group) who are parroting a bunch of "oh no! how could they?! this is the worst thing ever!" comments, when I know for a fact that they have less of a clue than I do when it comes to European globalism.

I mean, really, wtf does a 30ish year old American with a liberal arts degree running some coop small business dedicated to "sustainable hempware," or some bullshit like that, know about the political, economic, and social ramifications of a country leaving a consortium? F***ing kids still trying to pretend they understand how the world around them works so people will think they are adults. It's irritating.

From a purely philisophical perspective, I'd have never wanted to be part of the EU in the first place if I were a Brit. The idea of shoving more people into the one-size-fits-all solution box really doesn't sit well with me. We've been doing it for a while now with eroding states rights and increasing the powers of the federal government. It's not a good thing. It provides us fewer options as to what type of society in which we want to live. The idea of political globalism is scary to me, because I don't have the illusion that everyone will agree to live under the system I would prefer.

Like most things, there are good and bad. Having a more global approach leads to efficiency in many businesses. You can build one car / toaster whatever and know that it meets all regulations in all of those countries without modification (other than the Brits still drive on the bloody wrong wide of the road). That also can apply to things like banking, securities, and insurance. London was really lining itself up to be the banking center for the EU, but that will be going out the window with this.

Another upside is people are free to travel to where the jobs are and work there. This includes young folks getting to see Europe while working at odd jobs around the continent. They can still probably still do that, but it will be a lot a harder.

Also in negotiating trade agreements the larger the block you have, the more favorable you should be able to negotiate in trade agreements.

The down sides are the open borders and having to live with those other countries telling you what to do.

Puerto Rico leaving the U.S. would still be a bit of a sting, but largely a non-event.
$100 Billion in GDP lost very little tax contribution

That's the TX flag. PR has a triangle on the blue side.

Knew it was a matter of time till somebody brought up PR...

Read up on it, its not the little tax contribution that made PR worthwhile to the US, and I am not talking about the Russian missiles in Cuba problem either.

I wonder what the pharmaceutical industry would do if PR were to leave the US.

I am glad England left, it will be a rough road but in the end they will be better for it.


Yeah I am old enough to know better. Thing is, I just don't care.

They are all pretty much gone from PR, after the 936 was killed, most pharmaceuticals moved their business to central/south America. IMO, that's one of the key issues that started this massive problem.
