What an historic day, as the UK decides to throw off the shackles of EU regulation, fees, and socialism. Britons will no longer have to pay for the incompetence, welfare, government pensions, and socialist policies of the rest of Europe.

Britain now has the opportunity to become a bastion of trade, innovation, and business growth. But that won't happen without work.

I ask my British friends, to first beware of cunning workarounds. The proponents of cronyism and socialism will now try the following. They will use economic scare tactics to try to browbeat you into accepting a new agreement...that will look the same as the old agreement. Fight that. While your economy transforms over the next months, there will be rocky times. That's what real economic growth, the kind that comes from productivity and innovation, looks like.

To those who will tell you that England is too small to stand on its own: nonsense. England has the opportunity to be a bastion of free market capitalism in a sea of socialism. What Hong Kong was to China, you can now be to Europe. Let the rest of Europe drown in its regulation, socialism, and unbridled laziness.

Any short term economic difficulty is just shedding a few crony capitalists and economic parasites. If you use this as an opportunity for freedom, innovation, and growth, you will be the great nation you can be.

Keep fighting for the next two years. I promise: this battle is not over. Cronyism and socialism will work hard to find a way to continue. Be fearless; reject any bad deals; and retake control of your own destiny.

Thank you for all the work you have done, and thank you for voting leave.

Respectfully,

Arvin Vohra
Vice Chair
Libertarian National Committee
