    Since I witnessed the petulance, arrogance and contempt of remainers towards the rest, I felt vaguely repulsed. I'm not sure patriotism is regareded as so heinous anywhere. I'm pretty sure that waking up happy to be in an a proudly independent country isn't an evil right wing position or something to be sneered at in India, China, Japan, Canada, the US and Australia- it is simply taken for granted every day and implicit. I feel solidarity with leave, don't get me wrong, some of them I would solely share this issue with them and nothing else, but so many leavers are so much more complex than the vocal and cocksure and indoctrinated remainers presume. Their sneering self-satisfaction, spite towards anyone who apparently is some extreme 'right winger' actually by US/Chinese/Indian/Japanese, many many countries standards they are very very moderate, makes me feel nauseous-it's kind of the social demographic I was raised in but I loath the smug ***** so much. I see the joy and unabashed patriotism, not to mention their direct, open way and lack of pseudo-sophistication, that goes on in the USA, and their gravitas, and when I see them simply acting in their national interests( and showing more humanity than us,) and a bunch of snobs like these sneering at people who try and do the same here, and insisting that none of these concerns that are genuinely about national interests matter, and that their own sense of moral superiority is what it's all about, and that every other country knows whats best, I really feel the call of America. At the same time there are more left leaning, real socialist people in France who I like, totally different principles but still patriots, they are more real decent people who again mean their beliefs and don't use them as social superiority tokens, England is just full of spiteful ***** and sneering pseudo-sophisticated moral hypocrites who would stab you in the back as quick as they can, and simply love nothing more than a sneer in what can seem like such a pompous, narrow place., Like I say I'm torn 'cos I want to to show some solidarity, and I love some aspects and people of this place a lot, maybe that's naive though, the way this country has become. I think we are messed up, and seemingly having ran the world and now lost it to the US and being on the doorstep of Europe gives us some real identity problems and pathologies, it also seems the class system, so rigid, is utterly outmoded for the times we live in(never mind independence being that remainers) but strangely enough, while remainers say they want change in everything and Brexit is about regression, these people seem quite deeply conservative in at least the sense of preserving these deep class distinctions, they also seem to have a low view of America, apart from when it is one of their social and economic liberals Democrat darlings telling them to be lesser as a country and serve America's interests in Europe(all it's about, not pro-Europeanism in the US) but of course-Europe is the passport to civilization and getting away from the ghastly luddite Brits, let's not let their vastly more backward attitudes on race and interracial marriage though.....

    Anyhow, not insulting the decent people amongst you all.

    Sounds fair enough, what is your profession?
    Do you have any family in the US that could sponsor you.

    Emigrating to the US on the employment route is pretty tough, you need to have a good skill and professional experience in something they need.

    I'm not patriotic in any way, nor will I ever be; to me this is just a country where I currently live. I also don't see anything too great about Britain, and I lived abroad for 3 years, so it's not like I don't know anything else.

    Everyone is different; some people love where they live, some hate it, and some just don't care about patriotism at all...

    I plan on moving out of England to a country within the EU once I finish uni, just because I don't want to live outside of the EU.

    You still have 2 years to uproot and move to any EU country.

    Now whether they want you or not might be a different question.

    "Nationalism is an infantile thing. It is the measles of mankind."

    - Albert Einstein-

    Brexiters do love the independence? Okay I love it too. But that doesn't mean I want to become the greatest king of the world.

    Brexiters are such patriots or nationalists? Okay it's your business. But Hitler is also a patriot or a nationalist. So do enjoy your philosophy...patriotism.

    I'm just like a bird. I can fly to any place in the world. If UK is like Hell, won't you leave?

    Sorry, I'm not the measles of mankind.
