Here are some of the reasons to vote 'yes'. I'll leave the 'no' argument to you jmo
Reasons to vote YES for an Independent Scotland
Below is a selection of the most heard reasons, comments and opinions from Yes-voters. If you agree with most of these reasons then make sure you vote YES at Scotland's Referendum for Scottish Independence.
Taking Responsibility by moving all Governing Powers to Scotland. You would like to get the opportunity to move more responsibilities to a more local Scottish Democracy instead of accept the fate of Westminster's plans? With all the powers moved to Scotland, we can make a fairer Scotland.
We already have our own government who decide a high proportion of the decisions that matter. Also we wouldn't be moving all governing powers to Scotland as all of the pro-independence parties want us to be a part of the EU. Not only that but we would lose the favourable conditions that the UK's membership of the EU has, so we would actually be relinquishing power to the EU. I've never understood this notion that we should end London rule whilst being perfectly happy with Brussels rule.
Get the Government we choose
The Tories are in power in the UK, although the majority of Scots have chosen the opposition. The Scots are outnumbered ten to one, so whatever government the Scots will vote for in a UK General Election, it's highly unlikely that a Scottish Political Party will ever be part of a UK Government representing Scotland's needs. With the rising votes for UKIP in England, our goals towards a fair and harmonious society will diminish even further.
The Tories are one party in a coalition with the Lib Dems, the Lib Dem and Tory vote together is actually quite significant, and a lot more than 10%. We have the government we choose at Holyrood, whilst having a proportionate representation in Westminster. Democratic deficits are always going to happen. My constituency voted Labour in both the Scottish and UK elections, yet we don't have a Labour government in either parliament, should we become independent from the rest of the UK/Scotland because of this? Of course not, it's silly. It would be like Texas deciding to become independent because the president isn't a Republican. All of the major parties represent the entirety of the UK, including Scotland. Why should there be a Scottish Political Party representing the whole of the UK? Do people in Yorkshire think there should be a Yorkshire political party representing the entirety of the UK? It makes no sense. As for the rising votes for UKIP, the votes for UKIP are actually rising at a higher rate in Scotland than anywhere else in the UK.
Securing Oil Funds in North Sea
Scotland's Oil reserves are vast. Most of the revenue and tax made from Oil goes directly to Westminster. There are claims that Scotland will be one of the wealthiest nations in Europe if we become independent.
We receive more money via the Barnett Formula from Westminster than we provide from Oil. We are already one of the wealthiest nations of Europe whilst not being independent.
Scotland has the resources and finances
Scotland has the resources and finances to become independent. One of the early myths created by the No Campaign has been debunked and even the Unionists agree that Scotland has what it takes to become independent and the Scottish people will be better off financially.
When was this ever a view of Better Together? Nobody has ever claimed we can't do it, we are claiming we shouldn't do it. Two very different positions.
Believing in the creation of more jobs
With an ever rising energy and electricity demand in Europe, Scotland could be one of the global leading suppliers. Scotland has many natural resources that allow sustainable energy for which more jobs are created. Furthermore when Scotland becomes Independent, many centralized services and offices, like Tax Offices, DVLA etc have to be set up in Scotland. This will create many jobs and jobs provide an income, which is good for the economy and beneficial for us all.
And setting up all of these new services costs money. Why create new centralised services when ones already exist for the sake of new jobs? Tax and spend policies will not help.
Believing in the benefits for Scotland and yourself as individual
Not only will there be more jobs, the future Government already has plans for creating better Healthcare and improve the situation for Pensioners and people with children. We'll keep the minimum wages, scrap the bedroom tax, etc.
Where is the evidence of more jobs? The Scottish government already has plans for creating better healthcare? Why not implement them now then? Healthcare is already devolved to Holyrood. Interestingly the only party in the UK who voted to protect Scots from the negative impact of the bedroom tax were Labour, a Unionist party. The nationalists decided to abstain.
Believing in a more equal wages
The difference in wage in London compared to Scotland for example is huge. This gap is growing and with the current UK Government the richest only seem to get richer and the poor becoming poorer. With a smaller gap between the highest and lowest incomes, there will be less jealousy, greed and more happiness if we're have more equal wages.
Wages are a poor indicator of equality considering the difference in the cost of living between Scotland and London. Wages are higher in Scotland than the national UK average and under Labour the rich/poor gap declined. How exactly will independence miraculously make everyone suddenly more equal? If you don't like the current government, vote for a different party, don't vote to f*** everyone else and try to create a new state.
Believing that Scotland and England have opposite Political and Social views
Why should both countries suffer from having to compromise political decisions to please both sides. Let's respect each other and go our own way. In doing so, we'll become better friends and neighbours then we are ever going to be in a forced political marriage.
Scotland and England do not have opposite political and social views. The north of England votes very similarly to Scotland and social surveys suggest our views are more similar than they are with any other individual country. Another myth perpetuated by the Nats to try and create false divisions between Scots and the English.
Understanding that NO may lead to changes for worse
Change is going to happen, whether you vote Yes or No. By voting NO for independence, you will have less control over the changes that are going to change, because the government who makes these decision is still in Westminster. A No Vote for independence will be almost certainly be used by the UK government to withdraw powers from Scottish Government, withdraw funding for Scotland and will be seen as as an act of 'no confidence' in the current Scottish Government. So by voting NO, not only will things be changing, things might be changing for worse.
Any evidence for this? At all? Every single one of the major UK parties (as in the ones which have any chance of forming the next government) have committed themselves to giving more devolution to Scotland. It won't 'almost certainly be used by the UK government to withdraw powers from Scottish Government', each of the Unionist parties have actually said they will do the opposite.
I don't know where you got these arguments for but they have no evidence and little evidence with stats. Even by Nat standard those are poor arguments.
