On Thursday, Scots will vote on independence from the UK.

I vote YES !

Here is a poll in Time Magazine, you can check a little box and throw your weight into the butterfly effect

http://time.com/3379239/scottish-independence-vote-poll/

This could be the new UK flag, minus Scotland:

It seems that Time magazines position is a globalist one and does not offer a counter point. The Scottish secession vote is a referendum on many things too include multiculturalism, global elitism and the need for Great Britain to consider a Federalist form of government in its rule of the British isles. Scots are considering that some of the most prosperous countries in the world are smaller ones (i.e. Switzerland, Norway, Sweden, etc.) so here are some counter arguments to the E.U. backed Time magazine message.

Many of us are descendants of countries on that island.
If you want strong opinions, ask your elders.

But, as long as i can get a Macallan neat I'm good with whatever they decide.

I am of Scottish descent (first generation American), and while I do not concern myself with their politics, I do believe that this could have both good and bad ramifications, not only for Scotland, but of the rest of Europe and for those that want to resist the European Union.

I vote yes because it will force the UK to take their nuclear submarines someplace else. Why should Scotland be used and exploited as a launching ground for a war they may not want to participate in?

I also think Scotland has every right to run their own country. Small is better.

Financially, every country is better to manage their own finances than rely on an empire.

I'm Scott on one side, Welsh on the other, and I know a great deal of my family history on both sides.
The oppressive yoke of British rule is still a topic of discussion with family elders.

I would vote yes.

Due top proximity to England IMHO Scotland is pretty much f***ked if there is a nuclear war in any case so I think having a British Nuke sub base on their soil is the least of their worries.

I don't know of whom you speak of that think their Scottish, Irish, or whatever, but I know my heritage, where my families lived (and still live), and my name is in the family registers. I proudly wear the thistle on April 16th and the daffodil on March 1st.

Both my parents were born in Ireland in the latter part of the second decade of the previous century. Just before 1920, in case you stupid F'n Brits can't grasp a concept. Both my parents could trace their heritage back before the Roman Empire invaded the islands. The funny thing is that the Irish were never conquered by the Romans like the Brits were. No conquering, no interbreeding, and you give me crap about being what. What a joke.

Us "Yanks" define ourselves from our families place of origin. So even though you see all of those as English or British. The ones who came here defined themselves as Irish or Welsh or Scots..Just like if you ask me what is my Nationality I will say Italian because all of my Family comes from there. I don't have any other blood line. But I'm really an American because I was born here.

Just like we don't understand your culture you don't understand ours....We stand united as one yet we know where we came from and many of us practice the culture of our heritage.

So here in the US those who came from Scotland or wales will say to us they Are Scots or Welsh....we don't define them they did it for us
