On a matter as time sensitive as this, the old folks should not vote at all. Let the younger generations have their say in what kind of world they will live in for the rest of their lives. The older generation is directly responsible for what ails much of society today. Yes, I'm playing generation politics here which is unfair and discriminatory but I don't care.

Do you realize what you say?

No one should be denied of any rights because of age. The older people have experience. It isn't only about pensions, it's about taking risks, and it's quite normal that the young are bigger risk-takers. The same goes for driving.

Taking educated risks is the way forward. The route away from stagnation. The route away from Brittan.

I haven't seen such idealism during a long time. Populist decisions are good in short-term but could result with inevitable crash in the long term. A majority of older people would always prefer to vote for populist decisions rather than good long-term solutions, that's a main issue of the representative democracy. Populists are exploiting them by offering lower taxes, higher pensions, "stability" etc. It's the same everywhere and their experience is usually irrelevant.

The same is true with women. Women as a group like to preserve the status quo. They hesitate to take risks, even if the relation between risk and reward is highly favorable. In politics most women vote for candidates that either look trustworthy or offer comforting messages. Not so much because of serious interest in political topics.

So without women being allowed to vote we would see a lot more progress in the world. Just saying. Cheesy

The outcome of the vote will impact younger voters more then older voters. His argument is that more people whose lives will be impacted the longest should vote in larger numbers.

A vote that affects all voters for the same amount of time (for congress or the president for example) is a very different story because such a small percentage of votes will die before they have the chance to vote again for the same issue.

They were a bunch of pussies, I honestly think that was part of the problem, because they were talking about things like trying to keep the pound and so on, that's not what somebody who truly wants independence does.

I guess people are just afraid of the unknown. Specially the old people, they dont want their habits to change. Very sad that they refuse the young their independence and a much brighter future away from pounds, banksters et al.. embrace misery and cowardliness.

Not to worry, the old people will be dead in 20 or so years and the Scottish might get another chance Tongue

I think you'll find that in 20 years time there will be a new batch of old people to replace the current ones...

Westminster officials shouldn't take any part in organization of local referendums. Otherwise we'll see the same results every time.

This referendum isn't the end of the world, Scots might get another chance in 15-20 years. This generation probably lost it, though. Independists will have more than enough time to rethink their strategy and to find out why the majority of people wasn't convinced that independent Scotland would be better for them.

I would disagree. The scottland economy would be much weaker without being part of the UK, and having their own currency would mean less stable prices. One reason why many people did not vote "yes" was because the Bank of England said that an independent scottland would not be able to use the british pound after an 18 month grace period

pff you dont have the beginning of a clue as to what could happen. This is like the global warming scam, you are all afraid and crave paying taxes and be dominated by some psychopathic elite. If bitcoin taught me something, it is that independence is precious. Every single people should be independent. Sure it may not be easy in the beginning because those fucking banksters et al are going to crush you with their money (werent the banks in scotland threatening to flee to london? rofl fucking joke those scums), trying to prevent you from breaking free from this corrupted and enslaving system.
