Scottish Independence, a Good Idea?


European Union

I just wrote about the insanity going on in the United States post election about people in different states wanting to break away from the United States.

The matter it reminded of was the potential vote for Scottish independence in 2014.

I thought of this with the problems in the European Union.  Look how well Ireland and Greece have done in the European Union.  Is it better for Scotland to be connected to Britain or the European Union.  As a nation of five million people wouldn’t it be better for Scotland to have a voice through a larger entity?  I thought of this from Michael Palin’s New Europe, when he toured the nations of the former Yugoslavia.

Then there is the comment, what is a nation other than a language and a flag?

About tucsonmike

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York and now live in Tucson, Arizona. I have discovered a passion for writing. I have five books out now, with a sixth on the way. Take a look @ my book list: The Search for Livingstone An Affair of the Heart The Search for Otzi Griffith Justice in Space. Moriarty The Life and Times of a Criminal Genius Available now on Smashwords - Amazon and Barnes and Noble As to not bore my public with just "Buy my book," I am also interested in baseball, the outdoors, art, architecture, technology, the human mind and DNA. I learned Ashkenazi Jews, of which I am one, have to lowest rate of Alzheimer's in the world. Therefore, I treat my brain as a muscle needing a workout. I enjoy good food, flirtation, beautiful women (I am happily married for thirty years), so just flirting ;) I was considered autistic when I was young, trying to figure out if I have a mild form of Aspergers and learning from that. That is for future posts. You can also see I love history. Enjoy my sarcastic silly look at the world, and making History more interesting than a textbook.
