Scottish Independence

I've been seeing a lot of stuff about some YES campaign for Scottish Independence in 2014. As an American, I'm not really aware of the political situation of the UK, but I don't really understand what the point of Scottish independence would be. Is it just a bunch of tryhard nationalism, or is there something deeper to it?

Scotland has oil, they want to keep the oil for themselves while retaining the benefits that being part of the UK gave them.

Edit: the poll options make it look like you think being from Europe automatically means knowing about the situation. Why should someone in mainland Europe care about Scotland?

Probably for the same reasons that everyone in Europe seems to care so much about America.

If Scotland was independent they'd lose so much money and quality of life.

They've already got free Uni, free prescriptions and stuff up there. all that would be lost if they left. and they'd have to start their own Armed forces and stuff, so they'd overall end up a very poor country, despite the oil.

Yeah but America is... America. What happens there actually influences the world. Nobody really cares about Scotland. You don't honestly think someone from Turkey or Poland is going to care about Scotland do you?

For the same reasons that someone in Massachusetts cares about what happens in Arizona.

Oh, we're fucking sorry for basing our Empire on a tiny cold island. We could have given you the Welsh land, would you rather be Welsh? Didn't think so. Quit whining.

So imagine Arizona is united with some other state around there, I don't know much about American geography but I'm pretty sure Texas is next to it. Imagine Arizona is in a union with Texas, and they're both part of the USA, and then one day Arizona decides to leave and becomes its own state. It's still part of the USA, so why should the average person living in Massachusetts care?

Because it affects the country as a whole.
