Score one for liberty

Here at Dan on liberty we like to discuss issues that involve obtaining more power for the individual. One way to do this is to pass power from large centralized governments to the smaller provinces that are governed. In short your vote in a smaller pool matters more. Also this allows for more specialization.

On Friday Scotland made progress toward this goal as the Scottish National Party secured twenty more seats bringing their total up to 47 seats. This is in contrast to Tony Blair's Labor Party which lost four seats with a total down to 46. The conservative party has 17 seats, and the Scottish National Party will face opposition from the Liberal Democrats with 16 seats. And yes, the Scottish National Party is in favor of independence of Scotland.

Dan's comment on this is that this assertion of independence will be good for Scotland regardless of the left-right argument.
