Mostly because the sliver of Scottish heritage in my blood yearns for FREEDOM, and I would take a great deal of pleasure from seeing a Free Scotland, irrespective of whether it makes sense politically/financially/practically.

I recognize it's probably a bad idea because I haven't yet seen a coherent plan for how an independent Scotland would handle establishing a new currency and taking care of all the infrastructure upkeep and development that the united government does now, but in spite of all that, I would STILL like to see Scotland tell the UK to fuck off and sort of wing it after that.
3. So many peolpe CAN be wrong about UKIP being racist. I joined in 2004. I've stood for election for UKIP. If people can credit my intelligence, and those who know me know that racist is more-or-less the last thing I am [...]
Well, this is probably the reason you did not win the election; your inclusive views did not mesh with the party's radical dogma. :P

(In all seriousness, I don't think UKIP is racist and I think the people who accuse it of being so are being very shortsighted, as people tend to be when they're ogling a party that isn't their own. I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to make light of it.)
But what I can tell you is that UKIP is the only party willing to seriously look at immigration, and that, combined with the fact that we believe in national democracy, automatically makes us racist in some people's mind.
Immigration I can understand, but what is necessarily racist about national democracy? I thought that would have been a generally popular idea.
I can equally say that the party is not racist. I have genuinely met as many racist Labour and Tory members as I have UKIPpers. That is the honest truth of it.
Well yeah, but they don't say objectionable things, so the public can't very well be expected to rag on them as they do UKIP.
"First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win".
To that I would add my own wisdom (feel free to quote me in the future as you see fit, this could go in a history book one day):

"But not without comprehensive electoral reform leading to results that are in better proportion to popular demand."
4. LOL make light of the breakdown of my relationship due to her repeated abuse of my trust. Good strategy!
That was purely in jest so I'm sorry if I hit a sore spot. I can e-snog you if it'll make you feel any better.
Everyone is a minority when you look into it.
Yes, but it's the degree to which one is a minority that counts I think. Ethnicity is probably the most important one, since common culture can unite even radically-different looking people. Race matters but not quite as much. And I don't think religion or other classes really matter much just as long as you're not an atheist in America (correct me if I'm wrong, but atheism is pretty generally acceptable in the UK these days, innit?).

I'm a minority because I'm legally hispanic, but nobody really cares about that. Now if I was a fresh Mexican immigrant, especially a Muslim one...


if you said that to my face just now, I would genuinely break your nose.
But you wouldn't have punched me? I have to say, I'm a bit insulted. I thought my joke was top-quality nosebreak-worthy shit.

The Indian owner of my local shop was complaining to me today about how there were no English chip shops round here anymore because they'd all been taken over by the Chinese :lol:

I didn't ask him who he voted for.
