I understrand you're American, so unless you want to come and live here permanently, what interest do you have in the future of Scotland, and just how much exactly do you know about Scottish politics or what the true state of affairs here is? You can certainly get information from the media and your friends here, but I can do the same with US affairs, only I wouldn't consider myself an expert enough to make a judgemental comment, merely a reasonably informed on-looker.
Actually, I do plan on moving there, not that it is any of your damn business. I've also been to the country multiple times now, not that it should matter either. Frankly, I never touted myself as an expert, so thanks for putting words in my mouth. I simply know what I have read from the media, from academic sources, and from experts who deal with the EU and the UK as institutions.
Where do you get your information from? Would you have known that Alex Salmond and David Cameron were meeting from anywhere BUT the media? Would you know what was going on in other parts of Scotland if it weren't for the media as well?
