Why Scotland Should Vote To Leave Britain
The Scottish People Should Vote To Dump Britain.
It really is a no brainer . The Scotts really have no choice but to vote for independence from Britain. Why ? Logic dictates that they have to vote for independence!
Here is how it works. If they vote to remain part of Britain they are forever more British than Scottish. There is nothing to gain and just all of their history to lose. If they vote for independence then they can always vote again to go back on their terms not on Britain's terms. Independence gives them leverage to go back they would never have and great chances of restoring their own nation and succeeding better than the whole of Britain does. Having the ability to get concessions from Britain to come back in union later on is something that the lack of independence never affords. That is logic for the good of thinking it out.
The main question now for many in Scotland is the British Pound. Will they not retain the value of their British pound holdings? Nothing to worry about. The British Pound is sound and no one has to dispose of their holdings. Scotland does not need to move over to the Euro , it can also adopt the US Dollar side by side with the pound and the euro. Nothing in monetary values has to change just because of sovereignty. Many countries use the US dollar as the currency of choice and not the local currency. No hurry on issuing any Scottish pounds or dollars. The British will remain happy that Scotland remains connected and there is also no reason to require passports or visas to cross the border into Britain. Scottish papers can be issued later on and with sovereignty the British probably would not mind an open border as much as the Scotts will be happy to leave it that way. Sovereignty is a great blessing not a curse. It can be greater sovereignty than the Brits themselves have with the adoption of a more American style constitution. Sovereignty affords many possibilities that letting London decide never will . It does not make Scotts less than brothers with the Brits but it does give them more equal footing as equals with the ability to drive the bargains of politics in their favor with the larger neighbor. It does not affect relationships with Europe either other than to give Scotland a separate medium of engagement and representation in the European union.
Given all the possibilities and a greater say that logic says it is a no brainer to vote for independence and then direct negotiations to keep things as much exactly as they are with Britain with much added political leverage to have advantages as never before.
