The Scots vote for independence in 2014

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-2182...

It looks like London is going to allow the Scottish people to vote for independence. This is a good thing, and I've noticed more and more regions, states and provinces wanting independence from their various central governments. Another example is Catolina, Spain. They want independence but Madrid is telling them no way the vote will happen.

The BBC article has some very interesting comments. People can be so brutal and anti-liberty it makes me sick. They want to stay as part of they union for no other reason then "it's a global world" and "nationalism is racist" and "we are stronger together...blah, blah".

The sheeple just can't accept that human beings are born free with natural rights of self determination.

Please don't be fooled

I'm here like all of us because we uphold the values of the Constitution and for our admiration of Dr Paul, but this move to independence now is a move to push the Scots into the EU and push them into the Eurozone mess that exists...right now they have the British pound. As always the ptb give you freedom or rights so that it benefits them. I was first encouraged about this potential vote while in Europe this summer, but quickly learned they will be worse off with the "freedom" vote the queen will allow them to have...btw, I visited the William Wallace monument of freedom while in Scotland and it was an epic experience!

Someone has to say it

FREEEEEEEDOOOOOOOM

So when does the crazy Irishman show up to help?

Hang on

I'll ask the Almighty.

My point is that they are

My point is that they are attempting to leave their central govt. that in and of itself is a good thing.

Correction to: Catolina, Spain?

Sorry I was reading this article and I lol'd when I came across Catolina. Just thought I would let you know that it's actually Catalonia; as in the land of the Catalan people, who's capitol is Barcelona, and who often speak Catalan. It's a lovely place, that will hopefully be able to rid themselves of Spain.


From the frying pan into the fire.

The movement to leave the UK is coupled with the desire to become a full member of the EU. Freedom and "natural rights of self determination" aren't really a feature of the ongoing European Union experiment.

May Scotland be Free!

Being of Irish and Scottish ancestry, I have no use for the English maggots who have violated my ancestors. Growing up I learned how they treated them and just the thought of those arrogant jackasses makes my blood boil!

betty

Yes, but joining the EU will

Yes, but joining the EU will be a huge mistake. They should vote for independence, but keep the British pound. The euro economy is a mess. Germany is on the edge of voting to leave...and well they should. The EU is weakened by their poorest and worst run member countries.

"independence, but keep the British pound"

...can't be independent if your economy is subject to the whims of limey central bankers. Go for gold instead.

Anyway, while political decentralization is generally a good thing, I expect Edinburgh will prove as hard a master as London. I doubt an independent Scottish government would be any less socialistic than the current British government.
