A simple brief
thought on Scottish

Were the outdated
union not of some very
high value to England and
the English, why would
they fight so to try to
keep it?

There are only so many
slices to a pie, for one to
have more, another must
have less.

Lastly - to those Scottish
"Loyalists" - to whom are
you loyal?
Scots royalty died in the
1700's so it can be no
Scots crown - And
certainly not it appears to
those who came before,
that bled for Scotland
and her freedom !  
In the words
of Burns, as he
wrote from the heart.

Scots, wha hae wi' Wallace bled,
Scots, wham Bruce has aften led,
Welcome to your gory bed,
Or to victorie.

Now's the day, and now's the hour;
See the front o' battle lour;
See approach proud Edward's power,
Chains and slaverie.

Wha would be a traitor-knave?
Wha can fill a coward's grave?
Wha sae base as be a Slave?
Let him turn and flie:

Wha for Scotland's king and law,
Freedom's sword will strongly draw,
Free-man stand, or free-man fa',
Let him follow me.

By Oppression's woes and pains!
By your Sons in servile chains!
We will drain our dearest veins,
But they shall be free!

Lay the proud Usurpers low!
Tyrants fall in every foe!
Liberty's in every blow!
Let us Do - or Die!!

Choose your destiny.
Oh the glass is no' for you, bonnie laddie O
The glass is no' for you, bonnie laddie O
The glass is no' for you
For it dyes your manly brow
And it fills you roarin' fu', bonnie laddie O

Then drive us not away wi' your drinkin' O
We like your presence mair than you're thinkin' O
How happy will you be
In our blithesome companye
Taking innocence and glee for your drinking O

Now your e'en are glancing bright, bonnie laddie O
Wi' a pure and joyful light, bonnie laddie O
But at ten o'clock at night
Tak' a lady's word in plight
We will see anither sight, bonnie laddie O

There's a right path and a wrong, bonnie laddie O
Oh you needna argue lang, bonnie laddie O
For the mair you taste and see
O' our harmless companye
Aye the happier you'll be, bonnie laddie O
