scottish indep vote 9-18-14

i am curiously awaiting the results of today’s referendum on scotland’s independence from the united kingdom / i would find it weird for scotland to no longer be a part of the u.k. \ on the other hand, i would be excited for the scottish people if that is what the majority of them desire / imagine that, starting tomorrow they begin a new era in their history \ i’d be curious to know too what the people of the basque country would think or do, if “aye” wins

closer to home, what are the pro-secession citizens thinking? / in 2012, the top 5 states that petitioned to secede from the union are –  texas: 125,000; tennessee: 32,694; alabama: 31,597; arizona: 23,987; arkansas: 23,506 \ however according to texas vs. white:  When Texas became one of the United States, she entered into an indissoluble relation. The union between Texas and the other States was as complete, as perpetual, and as indissoluble as the union between the original States. There was no place for reconsideration or revocation, except through revolution or through consent of the States.  / so no chance, texas

and i do have a scottish connection / my street is “dunedin” \ the most “unpronounceable” among the streets i have lived in here in the u.s. / is it DONE-edin or done-EE-din \ dunedin comes from  Dùn Èideann which is the scottish gaelic form of edinburgh, the capital of scotland

 

as of 12:32 am eastern 9/19/14

glasgow, 53% independence

aberdeen, 41%

edinburgh, 39%

 

as of 2:12 am eastern 9/19/14

45% – 55% scotland stays in the union!  only 4 of 32 regions favored independence <independence day would have been march 24, 2016>
