      And sadly, the "No" side is relying on fear mongering and uncertainty, rather than posting solid reasons why staying a Union is a good thing for Scotland...

      While I don't have a dog in this race (other than some investments that could go to either country) I would not mind seeing what a nation of potential producers could do once separated from Socialist Britain.

    Aren't member republics of the United States already debating secession, and increasingly being taken seriously?

    Civilization is on the ropes. A new Dark Age is on the horizon.
