"We beg for a piece of what's already ours..." I'm such a nerd--I'm extremely interested in seeing what's going to happen Thursday when Scotland goes to the polls to vote on its independence.
The potential "YES" voters are purists/Romantics --- of COURSE Scotland should vote for its independence after all of these centuries of struggling for self-representation! On the other hand, the "NO" supporters logically argue that separating from England and the UK would mean a downturn in economic/political power for Scotland globally. Which it decidedly will.
I'm with the Romantics on this one. Rule yourselves, folks. Your soul is all you have.
