NOBODY CARES: We ’re not the center of the universe. In fact, no one really cares about the US.

It has been reported that some are warning more dominos will fall after the UK vote to leave EU. Will they include the OAS, UN, NATO, USA?

Why are exclusion peddlers and haters delighted with headlines of a DIVIDED KINGDOM and DIVIDED STATES OF AMERICA?

United we stand, divided we fall has been a phrase to inspire unity and collaboration. Its core concept lies in the collectivist notion that if individual members of a certain group with binding ideals. like unions, coalitions, confederations or alliances work on their own instead of as a team, they are each doomed to fail and will all be defeated. The phrase is also often referred to with only the words United we stand and divided we fall.

The Bibble "And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand". Similar verses of the New Testament include Matthew 12:25 "And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand" and Luke 11:17 "But he, knowing their thoughts, said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falleth."

Founding Father John Dickinson's pre-Revolutionary War song "The Liberty Song", says join hand in hand, brave Americans all! By uniting we stand, by dividing we fall!" Kentucky entered the Union on June 1, 1792. A little over six months later, on December 20, 1792, the first Kentucky General Assembly adopted the official seal of the Commonwealth, including the state motto, United We Stand, Divided We Fall. 'United We Stand' license plate designed by Troy Wingard for the South Carolina Department of Public Safety in 2002.

Patrick Henry used this phrase in 1799 during his last public speech when he denounced The Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions. Clasping his hands and saying "Let us trust God, and our better judgment to set us right hereafter. United we stand, divided we fall. Let us not split into factions which must destroy that union upon which our existence hangs." At the end of his oration, Henry fell into the arms of bystanders and was carried almost lifeless into a nearby tavern. Two months afterward, he died.

During his unsuccessful campaign (technically speaking) against Stephen Douglas in 1858, Abraham Lincoln gave a speech centered on the House divided analogy to illustrate the need for a universal decision on slavery across all states.

Since 1942, this phrase has been the official non-Latin state motto of Kentucky. The U.S. state of Kentucky's first governor, Isaac Shelby, was particularly fond of the stanza from "The Liberty Song". The phrase is also written around the center circle of the Missouri flag.
