It is odd, I have not heard a single Scot questioning the vote, only one loony

If not for the fact that most pro-Independence voters are blinded by their trust in Salmond, to do the arguing and the complaining, and if instead, they had relied more on their native Common Sense, they would have all been out in the streets protesting at this joke of a referendum, that defies all the laws of probability, in being so extremely different than what 7 major polls said was the will of the Scottish people one to two days before the referendum.

In Chinese history, we have a proverb for this, when the Prime Minister tells the young emperor (akin to the uninformed but sovereign populace) that a deer is really a horse.  It was deemed a crime of "deceiving the sovereign" and in Chinese law, deserving of punishment.  

In the case of Scottish modern history, on September 18, 2014, the sovereign but young and inexperienced Scottish electorate has been told that a Hollywood production called "referendum" with a scripted outcome, was the REAL REFERENDUM IN WHICH THEY VOTED AGAINST THEIR OWN INDEPENDENCE.  The deer was called a horse.  Deception of the sovereign people, indeed.

We can see the forest better from afar.  The Scottish people are still in the woods.  When they get out from the trees, they will agree that the referendum they were told they bitterly lost, probably never really took place.  Instead, they were simply told they lost 44.7% to 55.3%, and their leader promptly conceded in order to close the matter, without due diligence of inspecting the votes since the polls had said the two sides were neck and neck going into the polls.

Lincoln said, "You can fool some of the people all of the time, all of the people some of the time, but not all of the people all of the time."

The American colonists were smart.  They broke off from England early on.  And see how they prospered.

NOW SALMOND WANTS TO LEAD SCOTLAND INTO INDEPENDENCE WITHOUT ANOTHER REFERENDUM?  WHY NOT JUST DEMAND A RECOUNT, AND PROVE IT WAS INCORRECT, AND DEMAND A REVOTE?  BECAUSE, A REVOTE IS REASONABLE AND DOABLE, WHILE A REVOLT IS NEITHER.

SALMOND'S CLAIM THAT THE VOTERS WERE "TRICKED" INTO VOTING "NO" IS A CLEVER WAY OF REINFORCING THE MYTH THAT IN FACT THE VOTERS VOTED IN FAVOR OF "NO" RATHER THAN "YES", WHEN ALL STATISTICAL COMPARISONS OF THE 7 POLLS AND THE REFERENDUM PROVED THAT THE REFERENDUM RESULT IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE.

YES, SOME "NO VOTERS" MIGHT HAVE BEEN "TRICKED" INTO VOTING "NO".  BUT HOW ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY THAT THE MOMENTUM OF THE LAST FEW DAYS OF THE CAMPAIGN MIGHT ACTUALLY HAVE RESULTED IN A MAJORITY WIN FOR THE "YES, INDEPENDENT SCOTLAND!" VOTE?  SINCE THE BALLOTS WERE REPORTEDLY NOT SECURED AFTER THE POLLS, THIS MAY BE IMPOSSIBLE TO PROVE OR DISPROVE USING THE RESULTS OF THE RECENT REFERENDUM.

BUT MORE IMPORTANT THAN THAT SOME "NO" VOTERS WERE TRICKED, IS THAT THE ENTIRE "YES" FACTION WAS TRICKED INTO ACCEPTING THE UNVERIFIABLE CLAIM THAT THE REFERENDUM REALLY REPRESENTED THE WILL OF THE SCOTTISH PEOPLE, A CONCLUSION THAT WAS FACILITATED BY SALMOND'S QUICK ACCEPTANCE OF THE RESULTS OF THE REFERENDUM, WITHOUT THE BENEFIT OF A CLOSE SCRUTINY OF THE COUNTING PROCESS, AND WHERE QUESTIONS ARISE, INSISTING ON EXERCISING THE INALIENABLE RIGHT OF THE SCOTTISH PEOPLE TO A RECOUNT.

What is your proof that the YES vote lost to the No vote by 10.6%?  Ballots are required to be secured and preserved for a recount, but where are the ballots in this FAKE REFERENDUM?  How about in the landfill, where it really belongs?

It is a statistical impossibility given the closeness of the call down to the wire, substantiated by 7 polls done 1-2 days before the referendum, that the YES have 48% and the NOes have 52%, and then next day, VIOLA, THE YES GOT ONLY 44.7% AND THE NOES GOT 55.3%?

You can fool the Scottish voters, and only for a short while, but you cannot fool the people of the world watching your charade with amusement.

The Scottish people were cheated of a referendum that, in fact, they never had!
