    And then comes the attack on the idea of sovereign nations themselves. President Obama insists that “collective action” is more pressing than the idea of independent countries: a notion that those same American servicemen died fighting against:

    And in today’s world, even as we all cherish our sovereignty, the nations who wield their influence most effectively are the nations that do it through the collective action that today’s challenges demand.”

    I feel like Obama's comments went sailing over the author's head here.

    The USA is not about to pool its sovereignty with Mexico, Canada, Nicaragua et al, nor is it about to allow unlimited migration from any of those countries. So why does your illustrious leader think Britain should allow an unelected E.U. commission to frame its laws and allow over 300,000 E.U. migrants to come to its shores each year without any restriction?

    Britons are being told that on the one hand we have such a tiny pathetic economy that we cannot possibly survive outside the E.U., and on the other hand that our economy is so huge that our leaving will wreck the entire world economy.

    Britain is not withdrawing from NATO and has no intention of becoming isolationist. We (that is, those campaigning to leave) just want our country back, please.

    I love watching Nigel Farrage videos on YouTube, especially the ones where he calls out people in the European Parliament.

    It is in our self-interest to have England stay in the EU while at the same time hold tightly to our own sovereignty.

    Translation: It is in our self-interest to hold tightly to our own sovereignty, while encouraging other countries to weaken theirs.

    Actually I do not believe Obama wants to hold tight to ours. I believe we have clear evidence to support that.

    What is the evidence to backup your statement about the government and the need for a lower stock market?

    What happens during a bear market to the average American?
