Why should I or any American care about an independent Scotland?
Besides any reciprocal benefit to the US economy in having a NEW (more on that soon) nation as global partners, there is something deep in the American collective psyche that longs from freedom.
It wasn’t until the fall of the Soviet Union that we thought of ourselves as a young nation in comparison to Eurasia. European nations have bridges older than our constitution. Like it or not the world changes, it in fact feels far smaller than when I was a child. Not all the nations that dipped their toes in the shores of freedom back in 1991 have had it easy.
The Soviet Union was a mess when it was dissolved; sadly the old Devils have resurfaced.
They did not have a sustainable economy, Scotland does.
The Soviet Union was and is to this day an amalgamation of different ethnic groups, Scots barring immigration are a homogeneous people.
The Soviet Union broke apart in upheaval and violence, Scotland hopes to become autonomous with one of the best social tools available—a BALLOT.
I support an autonomous people forging their future as an independent nation–after all it’s the American thing to do 😀
