Since politicians pretty much frolic in my back yard I try to keep myself educated in the matters of the good ol’ U.S. of A.  Honestly, even if they weren’t so close I’d still be keeping an eye on them – they’re ALWAYS in the news.  Ugh! and the news is usually so depressing, lacking of heartwarming pieces, full of B.S. and biased, but if I weed through the junk I may find some info that’s worth paying attention to (caution: sometimes this is a depressing/angering tidbit of news) and so I continue to watch and keep my eyes on our leaders.

When I saw this video it definitely held my attention. Take a listen to Nigel Farage, leader of the UK Independence Party.  He’s got a lot of *cough* balls to speak the way he did and I applaud him in doing so. He’s right on the money folks!

Our country is in economic shambles and if we continue much farther down the road we’re on … and in EU style … we’re surely and sadly doomed. (Sorry for the Debbie Downer moment 😉 )

“But it’s even more serious than economics, because if you rob people of their identity, if you rob them of their democracy, then all they are left with is nationalism and violence.”

High-five brother man! I wish we could get political leaders in our country to speak so frankly. I also wish for a non Socialist president everyday too, but that seems to be pushing it.*sigh*
