I really wish California and Texas would secede. They're both terribly obnoxious for different reasons. I don't think California ever would but I can see Texas doing it.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Actually, do.

I'm sorry but I'm inclined to disagree. Monarchs have a history of violence and corruption (or giving into such).
Of course. There are bad kings and they make life miserable. But a good King is far better than any democracy you could hope for.

Yes, Thork, every person in the world who has taken a basic political structure class can say that a benevolent tyrant is the most efficient form of government. It is also an ideal that has never existed, making it a pointless topic of discussion.

Shit, if it matters, here in America, when I was a boy, we read about Robert the Bruce in our Reading Class in Third Grade.

New poll suggests 51% of Scots will vote 'Yes' to independence. How exciting! I'm currently working with a few die-hard pro-independence Scots so I'll be hearing a lot about this.
Whether you're for it or not, this result certainly means one thing: the result will be representative of actual Scottish wishes. A year or so ago I assumed that the majority of Scots would not bother voting under the assumption that independence would never actually happen.

Bullshit. Every election in the history of ever releases a poll that says "oooh its neck and neck now".

I'm starting to suspect that they can't or won't release polls that say "60% in favour of x, 30% don't care, 10% against" because of the backlash they'll get from both camps.

Eg "Your poll means our supporters won't turn out now because they think they've already won" Or, "your poll is a lie because you only asked x,y,z people".

There's some reports saying that Tory rebels are planning to overthrow David Cameron if Scotland does go independent. Maybe that will pave the way for Boris Johnson becoming PM?

Weekend news. Nothing to report. Lets speculate.

Only a small part of the entity U.K. is allowed to vote in this referendum.

Why can't the rest of us vote, to get rid of the parasitic Scots?
My I.Q. is 85......or was it 58.

It is important that we make them the architects of their own destruction. Its just more funny that way.

Bit strange but you never know. I really thought it was closer. If we see No drop below 40%... I won't know what to think.
NOTHING TO SEE HERE. IGNORE RAMA SET.

It's more exciting. They claim it's an ICM poll though... The latest ICM poll does not claim their figures.

I keep hearing about this but all I see are polls. Do they plan on actually voting or are these just nonsense polls all that ever happens?

Thanks. I hope they vote for independence. That way the UK will be weakened and the US can pick them off one piece at a time. Only after we annex Canada, of course.

Good fucking luck. You will have to get past the apology field first. No known force has ever resisted the remorse and guilt imbued in the target of the apology field. Sorry.
