"Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority ... the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters." - Noah Webster

"There is no worse tyranny than forcing a man to pay for what he does not want just because you think it would be good for him."
-- Robert A. Heinlein

The Scottish Revolt

Subtitle: Why it matters.

Never been there.  So I know that my opinion is probably woefully inadequate. I can only go on what I can glean from the internet, which really isn't much.

What little I can get tells me that Scotland is pretty leftist.  I don't use the word liberal, because that word has been abused beyond its classical meaning.  I mean leftist or "progressive" in the sense that Hillary Clinton uses it, which is to say that "progressive" is a euphemism for socialism or communism light.

Many real conservatives in America have dreamed of an independence or secession movement. Like having Texas separate from the rest of the states and become an independent Republic.  A more optimal scenario would be to let California secede and implement all the ideals that leftists want and become the socialist utopia that they believe in, but without any help from the rest of the states. Then we can all sit and watch as they crumble and starve and implode from their own stupidity in rapid order.  Right now, California is just doing it in slow motion because they can use the largess of the rest of the states via the Federal government.

Scotland is a tiny country by itself.  If it separates from Britain and maintains leftist policies, it will be a disaster and it will collapse, which will reinforce the cause of the global elitists.  If Scotland tries to implement true conservative measures that would make a positive difference, expect the global elitists to make moves to bring Scotland to her knees.  Socialism has never, and can never work.  The USSR proved that in no uncertain terms.  Socialism only lasts as long as it has other sources to leech from.
