The Scottish First Minister is calling for another vote on Independence, because Brexit. Why it seems only three years ago, because it was, that the cause of Independence was rejected by the Scottish voters. The Scots dodged a bullet that time. This time I hope the English dodge a bullet, and the Scots march off playing Scotland the Brave. As in 2014, here are my reasons for supporting Scottish independence:
Well, the Scottish independence referendum is up for a vote on September 18. I suspect that if the referendum supports independence that such a move will be an economic disaster for Scotland, combined with a socialist government whose economic forecasts seem to owe just as much to Groucho, Harpo and Chico as they do Karl. Having said that I am all in favor of Scottish independence. Why?
Depriving Labour of 63 Scottish MPs would probably ensure Tory government in England for the foreseeable future and that would be good for the US both in foreign policy and trade.
Socialists are completely dominant in Scotland and probably will be until they have total power to cause the type of disasters that socialists routinely bring about when they govern unchecked.
Scotland has bred since World War II generations who believe that a socialist utopia can exist in Scotland if it were not for malevolent forces south of the border preventing the building of paradise. They view Mel Gibson’s Braveheart flick as a documentary. Time to put this myth to a test. Vote Yes for Scottish independence if you have the misfortune to currently reside in the land of some of my ancestors.
