Because I’m allowed to express my opinion on anything if I so desire to, and because it was bigger than just Scotland’s Independence that was in play - it was an opportunity to see a country be brave and take their future into their own hands.
We live in a political climate where nobody but the wealthy have power, and by breaking from the United Kingdom and creating a smaller government, Scotland could have started a process I hope more places around the world start - a process of community based governments where more people are involved in politics and the government caters more directly to the needs of a specific pool.
Also, being Canadian has nothing to do with anything. I could be from ANY country and my opinion would be just as valid. Plus, as a Canadian, I actually do have opinions on breaking away from the United Kingdom, since, you know, my country has done just that.
Finally, on twitter I explicitly said “As a person who has no legitimacy in the issue, I am SO SO SO EXCITED for the Scotland decision tomorrow. This is history.” I’m not asking anyone to hear me as an expert on the specific subject of Scotland Independence.
So, fellow human being, leave me alone. This right here? Your attempt to exclude me from this historic event, to invalidate my ideas on such an important political moment? This is EXACTLY why things like this are important - politics are about everyone not just an elite few.
