During the 2014 referendum campaign no clear picture was provided of what Independence would mean for ordinary folks.
Scotland is rich in natural resources and per capita would endow our citizens with the means to enjoy a quality of life far in excess of that facing them if they stick with an overpopulated UK, which will continue to slide downhill.
Rather than follow the path of generating wealth for the elites through the financial markets Scotland should harness its natural resources to underpin: 1) Energy Security, 2) Food Security, 3) Housing Security, and 4) Job Security. All other components of a well balanced caring society flow from that.
Political party elites select the majority of the candidates we are required to vote for and these candidates primarily "canvas" on the manifesto promises set out by the party organisations. Many elected representatives see their political career prospects as dependent on accountability to party bosses rather than being accountable to the electorate who pay their wages.
Is it not time that a cross section of each constituency provide the manifesto for their elected Members of (the Scottish) Parliament. A manifesto to provide guidance on what we require them to work towards in order to provide a quality sustainable future for our children and their children
The attached Propectus provides a picture of Independent Scotland, outlining what would need to phappen and also what we could achieve as a normal self-governing nation like the Scandanavian countries, Denmark and other similar sized (by population) self-governing countries.
When Scotland achieves Independence from England it becomes in reality a NEW STATE and will require a NEW set of rules regarding the management of government institutions and authorities - in other words a written Scottish Constitution setting out how the NEW state of Scotland will operate. The CSCS have crafted a "Guide to a Provisional Constitution" that is intended to be the basis for a public debate to enable the People to review and authorise a draft Constitution prior to Independence Day.
It is the intention to publish the "Guide" online as a CONSULTATIVE document during 2018. It is expected that it will be taken apart word by word, examined and rebuilt by everyone with an interest in the shaping of an independent self-governing Scotland. It is a framework that is meant to be controversial and thought provoking.

When Scotland becomes Independent we will have a unique opportunity to convert to our own Currency.This will also be an opportunity for the Government to take back control of the Money System from the private banks and thus eliminate future National Debt.
