“Aye, fight and you may die, run and you’ll live, for at least a while. And dying in your beds, many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that, for one chance, just one chance, to come back here and tell our enemies, that that they may take our lives, but they’ll never take our Welfare/Healthcare/Gov’t Cheese!”
Ahh me laddies, that stirring line from the film Braveheart gets me every time. I have gently modified it to reflect the current state of the freedom movement in the now-more-than-ever-aptly-named “British Isles”. For those who thought we were going to see a move away from the insidious One World with Scotland finally embracing the very ideals they exported to this country over 200 years ago…….. Independence Fail! Not really news though. I mean seriously, it hasn’t even been news really. The whole thing was downplayed, at least in our “press”, for months. And when I did see some reporting, it was the typical poo-pooing from all the same poo-pooers. ” What currency will they use? What will they do for a military? Who’ll get their oil?”
I can picture all these same great minds during the American Revolution….. “What currency will we use, blah blah blah?” So, I guess we shoulda scrapped the greatest ( soon to be failed ) experiment in self governance and individual rights ever undertaken.
But there’s so much I’ve got to talk to you about, Dear Reader, so nose down, grindstone spinning….
