I was asked on twitter this very question:  Why are you so interested in UKIP?

Someone once asked Tom White that very question.  Here is the answer:

1.  As a student of politics, one of the most interesting things is political realignment.  It seldom happens in a functioning democracy.  The last time we have even minor political realignment is 1980 when Reagan was elected President.  Millions of nominal Democrats in the South and Midwest switched their Presidential vote and many switched other votes, too.

UKIP is on the verge of political realignment in the UK.  And it could be like the last major party shift – when the Whigs died out and the Republicans arose as the nation’s first anti-slavery political party.  That was over 150 years ago.  It’s a bit like seeing tectonic plates suddenly decide to shift quickly and form a new super-continent.  That is exciting to see – especially when it is a pro-liberty party.

2.  UKIP is fighting our fight.  Fighting against globalism and world government and an European Union that does not arise from the consent of the governed  but rather is a elitist superempire.  The issue is joined.  That leads me to my third reason for supporting UKIP:

3.  Great Britain has a great heritage.  Trial by jury, due process, limited government, individual rights, an independent judiciary, free enterprise, and much of what we call Western Civilization all come from Great Britain.

No nation is perfect.  But what Great Britain brought to the USA (somewhat in some cases involuntarily through struggle and revolution!) was all those ideals and they need to stand for these ideals.  I would say that UKIP best (sometimes imperfectly) stands for these ideals.  The European Union, the United Nations, and Agenda 21 all are opposed to those ideals.

4.  UKIP is like the Tea Party movement in the US.  Except for one thing:  UKIP went outside the conservative party and formed their own party but the Tea Party flirted with a third party but decided (in large part) to stay with the GOP.  But they might not continue to do so.  And that result might be led by the success of UKIP in the UK.

So that is why I do what I do.  However, if I am persuaded by UKIP members and supporters that what I do here at this blog is more harm than good, then I will stop writing about it.  My intentions are sound; my conscience is clear but the road to hell is paved with good intentions.  I firmly believe it is 1940 again.  Once again Britain is standing largely alone against tyranny and undemocratic forces opposing her.  She needs all the help she can get.  Maybe once again the principles of liberty, constitutional government, free enterprise and national sovereignty, embedded with the principles of Western Civilization (which is largely the Biblical world view) will prevail once again.  But even if not, as Shadrach, Meshach and Abedengo once said, we’ll never bow down to that false religion that man can be God.  And we are on the right side of history because Jesus will come again.

    The EU was set up to be a non democratic union. It was based on the 1942 German Europaische WirtschaftsGemeinsschaft.

  2. Henry Francis says:

    The EU is a monolithic structure in the making. Its currently appointed leader (as opposed to being democratically elected by a single vote)one Mr Von Rumpouy recently stated to a Dutch newspaper De Standaard that his “dreams” that all the Balkan states will join the EU. He calls it an “inspiring thought” that in the long term “the whole of European territory outside Russia” will be tied in some way to the EU.

    He admits he does not know if there is EU public support for such a move, “But we do it anyway.”

    The last time anything like that kind of rhetoric was voiced it author launched operation Barbarossa to impliment his crazy plans and he at least had the merit of being elected to office.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
