The Scottish doctrines and  political ideas that  were most embraced in the United States of America.with  it's birth and  now we can see a return to it's  values and the spirit of it's freedom from the Scottish idea of democracy and that of giving the greatness to each man  which came  from  the 1320 Declaration of Arbroath


Greatness comes from great ideas 

the rub comes in their implementation 

Great people come from the People

Of the people and for the people


How Scots and Americans have kindred spirits



Declaration of Abroath, 6th of April 1320

"As long as but a hundred of us remain alive, never will we on any conditions be brought under English rule. It is in truth not for glory, nor riches, nor honours that we are fighting, but for freedom - for that alone, which no honest man gives up but with life itself"


Now then take a  look at how the Scots used this to write the

Declaration of Independence on the Fourth of July 1776


"We hold these truths to be self-evident,that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with  certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life LIberty and the pursuits of Happiness"
