Why are US members not crying "Freedom!" for the UK/EU vote like they did for Scotland?

Do you remember the silliness around the Scottish referendum when ATS members with Scottish ancestry shouted FREEDOM!! every five minutes with associated Braveheart images?
Where are they now?

Remember the cries that Scotland was oppressed and all the rest of it, yet they voted to stay with the motherland lol
Come on US members, shout FREEDOM!!! for the UK...or do you all believe the Scottish Nationalist Party when they attempt to assert that the majority in Scotland want to leave the UK but stay ruled by the EU, and keep the queen as their head of state?
That is funny as #.

I may or may not keep up with thread management if anyone replies to this, but if not apologies in advance as I don't really care and I'm just entertaining myself.

So...to all you Bravehearts out there, why cry freedom for Scotland in the childish way you did but not the UK?

I can't remember many threads or for that matter posts, that reflected what you are saying, but then maybe I missed them.

As for the Scots wanting to remain in the E.U, but independent from the U.K, well I will never understand that.

Let me, as an Englishman cry Freedom for the U.K from the E.U and the unelected law makers.

What is this 'U.K' place you speak of and why does it want to be free? Is it next to Canada-land?

As a Welshman who lives in my adopted nation England, we stand united.

It's a tiny Island just North of France, often incorrectly referred to by our American cousins as England.

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.

Irishland is a smaller Island just to the left, although the top part of it does belong to the U.K. Confused? Don't worry it's all a bit complicated and tiresome if I'm honest.
