Land has almost always been equated with blood, blood to conquer it, blood to defend it, blood to work it, because land without blood is barren, and blood without land is destitute. But land and blood, together, make the land productive, and the people rich and wealthy. Today, Scotland draws the line with England, north of which is the LAND OF ITS FATHERS, and south of which is the LAND OF THE ENGLISH. North of this line, the Scottish people will possess fully and without limitations, 30,418 square kilometers of land, to be shared by 5.3 million people, equivalent to each Scottish man, woman or child, owning 5700 square meters of land as his or her birthright. If the Scottish people were to remain under UK rule, they would, as at present, own a total of 243,820 square kilometers of land, to shared with 63.2 million others, with each Scot thereby entitled to only 3,860 square meters of land. The difference is that by simply declaring independence, or claiming what was originally theirs, each Scottish man, woman or child would own 50% more land than they would if they remained subjects of the UK. Conversely, if they remained part of the UK, they would own 33% less land than they would if they become independent. As it is, Scots currently are subjects of UK, so the ratio that applies to them in the present situation is that of an increase of 50% more land, if they declared independence.
This much land would have taken long and bloody wars to acquire, but by birthright, and hence by the magic of the vote, the Scottish people stand to gain in one day, what took England 750 years to acquire by conquest.
If only for this one reason alone, the regaining of lands that once belonged to the Scottish people, and the Scottish people alone, land for which countless battles had been fought, countless lives had been lost, land that is synonymous with Scottish blood spilled on it over the centuries, there is no other vote that a Scotsman can make, other than "YES! This land is mine, God gave this land to me!"
