Well, the ballot box battle is o'er and Scotland is still a vassal state in the UK.

However, over 40 percent who voted for secession  Stop with that fact for a moment. The modern age is one of massive mobility. Here in Virginia, the Commonwealth is full of Non-Virginians. Many people don't see the value of state or regional heritage. With The War (1860-1865), the wars of the 20th century, the changes to the definition of citzenship in the constitution and generally the mobility of our population....that has been lost. Most people call themselves "Americans, it is difficult today to find enough "Virginians" to have a lawn dart game. Never mind finding enough to vote for secession.

But Scotland had 40 percent who, after 300 hundred years of being part of the Empire, after serving in her military, after being taught the English version of history and all that came with being "British"....wanted to be separate. I am impressed.

I am also hopeful they will hold to the faith and come back for another round at independence. This time maybe they can study up on the foundational concepts of sovereignty and win over the rest of the nation to being truly nationally and personally free.

In the honor of the Scots, we shall place a modified version of their flag in our mast head for a while. May God Bless the Scots....
