PROPAGANDA: INDEPENDENCE FOR SCOTLAND

Yes! for Scottish Independence!

On this beautiful Independence Day here in the USA, I feel like it’s important to talk about the upcoming referendum in Scotland on September 18th 2014. If I could vote in this national referendum, which poses the question “Should Scotland be an independent country?” my vote would be a resounding yes!
