I can't speak for others, but here's why for myself:
1. I think the UK's bankers are just as bad as Wall Street bankers. So I was thrilled with the possibility of Scotland being able to break free from
them (don't know much about Scotland's bankers though; was hoping an independent Scotland would then be like Iceland and bring justice and stability
to its financial sector). If the UK leaves the EU, that part wouldn't change (to my knowledge). So meh.
2. If you haven't noticed, we have quite a bit of political drama going on in the US right now. It's a bit hard to motivate myself to care too much
about the UK-EU situation when I'm so busy with our own political situation. Especially since I'm an actual socialist & people in the US are finally
open to having rational conversations about it. This is a once in a generation chance for me to help teach as many people as possible about it and get
them to join us.
3. No offense, but Farage, Cameron, the EU', the Troika, the British monarchy, and whoever else is or isn't involved don't really matter to me. They
literally have no impact on my daily life and I have no reason to root for any of them (to my knowledge). Trump, however, is/was calling for Muslims
like myself to be banned from my own country if I travel abroad. That's particularly ironic to me since my family line's been here longer and for more
generations than his has.
At least Scotland's leader during the referendum appealed to me a little w/his rhetoric. But as a proud lefty, I don't care for Farage or other right
wing demagogues. And we have a party full of them right here that I'm busy delegitimizing lol. So I guess it's a matter of priorities.
