I am surprised there isn't a thread on this already. I started off thinking I would be a No come September 2014, not for any discernable reasons other than I don't like change, what is the point, I hate Alex Salmond. I was pretty unshaken in my view and listened to all the arguments for and against. I have found, though, that I am increasingly becoming a Yes. I can't pinpoint exactly why...I think it comes down to dissatisfaction at being governed by a party that won no seats in Scotland, growing disgust at the various antics of the government down south (not sure a Scottish Government would be any less abhorrent though), and the main feeling that I have growing faith in Scotland to take this historical opportunity and run with it. I do feel that Scotland as a whole is a more progressive, tolerant and socialist society and I think we could do good things with Independence. Ultimately though I think everybody wants change and good things don't tend to happen unless risks are grabbed. Yes, I despise Alex Salmond but he eventually would be an historical footnote and other leaders will take over. I can't say No just because I hate the present and temporary leader. At this point I am undecided, swaying to a Yes, but interested in other opinions too.
