To All My British Friends,
Do you want freedom and innovation? Or bureaucracy and slow growth?
Tomorrow you will chose complete independence, or continued stagnation. You can continue to be dragged down by the rest of Europe's financial incompetence, socialist wastefulness, and meddlesome regulations. Or you can become Europe's prime location for innovation, entrepreneurship, business growth, and new jobs.
The investors who are nervous? Let them be nervous. They don't understand how innovation and entrepreneurship works. They don't know that if the UK leaves, it will become a haven for businesses seeking freer markets and fewer restrictions (i.e., all businesses). They don't know that a Brexit means more entrepreneurship, more jobs, and more growth.
The old, scared investors don't know what entrepreneurship is, or what innovation is. To them, business is just about numbers on spreadsheets. They have never experienced pioneering innovations, brilliant ideas, and the creation of new industries. They aren't entrepreneurs and visionaries. At best, they are financial parasites. At worst, they are the toxic advisors that make you afraid of becoming as great as you can be.
They say Brexit is a risk. Obviously. Innovation and growth always involve risk. In Silicon Valley, Los Angeles, New York, and London, great innovators take risks every day. Those risks create opportunities, jobs, and even entire industries.
Old and frightened investors may pull away from the pound sterling. So what? That just means British exports will increase in the short term.
As for the threats of retaliation from France: first, those are empty threats. They would hurt other countries far more than they would affect you. Realistically, you can expect something like what Switzerland gets (all the benefits, but none of the restrictions).
But even if you get completely shut out: so what? Look at the fastest growing economies in the world. Look at the cities with the most innovation, or the countries with the fastest growth or largest economies. What do they all have in common? They are not part of the EU. As it turns out, no one in history has ever needed France's help to innovate, grow economically, and create jobs.
Tomorrow, please make the UK the haven for innovation and economic growth that it can be. Please vote to leave.
