    America can only imagine what it's like to have this kind of turn-out.
    Or even the turn-out in your country in regular elections.
    You can't imagine what people say to me when I make calls or talk to them .

    Respect and credit to all of the voters for the high turnouts and making sure their voices were heard.

    I'm sure based, on my interactions with every Scot I've ever met across the globe, the reality of what they were about to do suddenly became clear as they entered the voting booth

    The outcome was the best for Scotland, the UK and the US. I'm actually surprised it was that close even though the polls indicated it would be.

    This has been perhaps the most democratic poll ever held. Without any sanction for non-participation, 85% of eligible voters voted. Stunning turnout!

    Just because they voted 'no' this time...doesn't mean they will next time.

    In the long run, I am convinced Scotland will leave Great Britain.

    I don't really much care either way, but I think it will happen.

    It also doesn't hurt that they pretty much got everything they wanted just before the vote.

    Anyone who's not happy in the USA always has the option to hit the road.

    The entrance to the exit is wide open.
    I predict that Scotland will not be repeating this vote any time soon. It wasn't even close.

    well it's like, you know... what he would say to look good and save some face.

    I'm saying it to be a... you know... a smartass.


    I seriously doubt that Spain will ever permit a referendum on independence to be held in Catalonia.

    And I also seriously doubt that Catalonia will ever be able to secede and defeat the Spanish military.

    But I could be wrong, let's wait and see, eh?

    Just what Europe needs: A second Spanish civil war. I wonder which side Germany will choose this time around.
