There are none so blind that cannot see, and there are none so deaf that will not hear,and none so dumb that will not speak.
One would have thought that there is nobody who cannot see and value the simple concept of Independence and autonomy, and yet for a large chunk of Scotland if the opinion polls are to be believed, there is a majority of Scots who are either against the concept or still undecided about it. Now that state of affairs does not ring true to me, and yet it would seem to be the case, how can this possibly be?
Is it really a case of Scots being incredibly thick, or are we the most gullible people on the planet? I honestly do not think that either of these statements are true, but should the vote be against Independence come September 19th then I will have to quickly revise that impression,as to vote against our own Independence will be one of the most collective expressions of stupidity that any people will have ever made. To vote against their own Independence, to vote against their own autonomy,to abrogate responsibility and hand that one singular power that every Individual has over to someone else is madness of the highest order! Yet if the Biased broadcasters and state media are to be believed,there are queues of us lining up like flocks of sheep to do just that?
Why should we not vote for Independence, when every other Independent nation on earth would not have it otherwise, and Indeed historically peoples have gone to war to fight for it, the colonists of the Americas are a prime case in point, they fought for their freedom and Independence from the British Empire, and won. Indeed at the forefront of American Independence were the Scots,they were the ones who drafted the American declaration of Independence and based it on the declaration of Arbroath.
Bit by bit the British Empire has collapsed, Australia,New Zealand,Canada and the rest have all become Independent and are doing alright thanks. Yet somehow or another we are to believe that Independence equates to Separation and is a Bad thing? It is neither separation nor a bad thing, these countries still take their place in the world and have not separated from anyone, and Indeed they have established themselves very well.
New Zealand was finally cut loose in the 1970’s, not because they particularly wanted it, but rather because they and others had run out of usefulness to Britain. The UK when it joined the Common Market cut off their trading lines with the Commonwealth, and New Zealand and others had to find new and alternative routes of trade. You don’t see the Kiwis complaining now do you? They are not the basket case Westminster says Scotland will be if we go for Independence. So why should Scotland be any different from any other small Independent country? Are we so uniquely inept and hopeless? Given our wealth of resources we would have to be worse than that, we would have to be the village idiots of the world to make a pigs ear of what we have got! Yet we are to believe just that, according to Westminster and Better Together….You do realise that they are calling us all useless Idiots dont you?
Well think on….When you hear all the negative things that they say about Scotland and the Scottish government on the TV, in the newspapers, the Westminster party politicians, they are talking about YOU! After all you are the clowns who voted in a government who you knew would ask for this referendum. Even if you didn’t vote for it, every negative thing they say about Scotlands inability to look after ourselves is by extension about you!
When they say that Scotland is too wee, too poor and too stupid, and that Scotland is dependent on Westminster handouts….They are not only belittling Scotland, they are belittling you and calling you a scrounger too!
Whats more…..They are lying through their teeth…..Aren’t they?
