YES and No Independence

I firmly believe that simply stating that you are YES or No to Independence is not good enough…We have to actually start thinking about what it all means for ourselves, and not just think voting for or against Independence is the end of it.
Voting YES is only the beginning, we have to have a vision of what it actually means to us, and a vision for what we aspire to ourselves, for our country and for our own futures.

This is my first ever video blog…. I hope you like it.

and this is the poem that is included as a small part of it…

YES and NO Independence

Saying YES is no Independence
and saying No, Is no Independence at all
I can say that I’ll agree to the right to disagree
And that Is what independence means to me

You can take all your flags and your slogans
You can shout them from the rooftops if you like
You can say that they’re all wrong, and still not know where you belong
When you don’t know right from wrong, or black from white

Some will tell you about Terror and Confusion
That your world will end,in pain and poverty
That you don’t have the brains to think, beyond the kitchen sink
They will tell you, do as your told,and stay with me

Others they will tell you, you have a future
Others they will tell you,just say YES
There’s a land of Milk and Honey, and you’ll be blessed with plenty money
Stay as you are, and you will end up in a mess

So how will you go about believing?
When you don’t believe in anything at all?
You are not part of a sheep fold, and wont do as you are told
And when either way, the writings on the wall

So think for yourself, you have got to have a vision
so think for yourself, If you really want to make things right
If you think it’s time for change, your hopes must rearrange
and see beyond the blackness, to the dawning of your light.

About auldacquaintance

I am not a member of any political party. I am however a strong supporter of Scots Independence. Any views which I express in this Blog are purely my own. This Blog intends to be a place where I will be putting my views on Scots Independence. It will primarily concern itself with the upcoming Referendum In Scotland. However It will also be somewhat diverse in the range of day to day issues which are evident to me in modern day Scotland. Not all of it will be political, and indeed may take me off into avenues I am not even aware of yet. Please come and join in on this journey, and any comments are welcome provided they are not abusive! All the best from a new acquaintance! Rod

    Scotland has over £4 trillion in northsea oil reserves The partitioning of the northsea by the Blair government could only be done as Scotland are members of the UK after independence those boudaries have to return to their origional possitions as the it’s part of the scottish continental shelf by law International Law, Maratime Law, UN Law, and EU Law, this was done to cook the books so revenues from that section wouldn’t show up in the Scottish account and we would think we had less money than we accually have The UK currently are over £1,2 trillion in debt and are finding it difficult to pay the interest on those loans and are borrowing more and more they need Scottish oil wealth and other revenues to keep their heads above the water
