here is a commonly held belief across Alaska, that the US Constitution has been set aside, and other then ourselves, there are no protections to the liberty and freedoms we are to have as our continued inheritance since the formation of the Union of the "several States". Our main "goal" is a legal vote and ballot; one that was not given in 1958 and was in violation of International Law and Treaty. Alaskans were robbed of the choices we were to have as a non-self-governing territory, and steam-rolled into the current classification of a State. The Native population of Alaska, in a large percentage, did not even receive a ballot because of the Federal Voting Rights Act in place. Alaskans now seek to a statewide free election to decide whether Alaska should be a free and Independent Nation.
Around 10 below as I type and supposed to get down to minus 25 by morning, and that ain’t cold. We’ll have 2-3 weeks minus 60 come January. Super nice summers, good hunting, fishing, just wonderful country without houses everywhere ya look. Actually , we get people move up every spring, can’t wait to leave soon as the roads open nx Spring, most just can’t handle it; others luv the Country. Sure is where we belong. I met Palin many years back in the MatSu. Only political I’d ever believe what she said, sure wish she was still our Governor, did good things here in Ak.
They gotta’ give back the part the USA owned though.
And all of these at once make me think that this is a prank by some liberal trying to make conservatives look foolish. This has all the earmarks of a hoax.
West Yukon and a new province of Canada
Alaska does have a strong Independent party support, there could be some serious thought and actions soon.
The problem of course would be the libs in Anchorage.
Actually I would be willing to bet if any state secedes it will be Alaska first.
and watch it
dont give us any excuse
For the South will rise again...
Google State Constitutional Conventions. Each State holds their own. It is tedious, but will avoid the bloodshed of our First Civil War.
NEVER ask the Damned US Federal Government for anything. They live in their own World, and only have the power over us that we allow them to have.
Elected Federal Politicians are fewer than 600 on a good day, and we are 300 MILLION everyday! DUH!
Did they pee in your fruit loops?
Ya know, we do have a bunch of Russkies in Ak, many came for economic reasons and they are now citizens chasing the American dream just like everybody else. They go back to visit relatives in Siberia, but are never moving back to Russia; they say everything, everything is better here. These are educated Russians of German heritage, their German ancestors have been second class citizens for 300 years and they find America so much more to their liking. Have a few for friends and they are conservatives, believe it or not. Their kids all speak perfect English, play sports, enrich Alaska too; but all the Russkies still believe in Russian Hockey, ha ha. I even know one who was in Afghanistan as a Russian. I can't wait to get him up with my Nephew who has been there himself several times. Most of the Russkies I have met are ok, quite appreciative of the USA.
During the American revolution several ststes in New England area including MASS were going to suceed from the 13 colonies...
They had sent their young men and had been fighting and dying for years...
George Washington had made them certain promises or they thought he had or imagined he should and they hadnt been paid nor had they received any supplieds or armament or food from the Continental army..
The crops and farms and families back home were neglected and they were deserting in disgust..
a secret convention place and date was set and delegates from each of the 4 or 5 states were chosen to attend...
I dont remember what happened to cause the convention and the idea to be cancelled but George was in dangewr for a while of losing much of his ready army and the war...
anyhoo the War of Northern Agression was not the 1st time a few states had planned to suceed...
and now here again...
When in the course of human events...
We only got one moose this fall and a few caribou, few bear. Picked up a 308 Scar this PFD day; my new hunting gun nx season. Haven't seen many wolves, got to do some riding when kids come home from school at Xmas. Anyway, what's new and exciting in MatSu?
The most co-depedent state requiring US help was HAIWAII.
May you be “blessed” by the Federal government taking 90% of your land an making it into a park, for you to tend for them. Or telling you not to dig up your coal, just freeze in the dark. Or dig for gold, cause holes in the ground 6” or less are drinking water, but holes bigger than 6” are poisonous mine waste...
Oh, and thanks for the support and grateful heart for all the oil we were able to ship to you despite the graces of the EPA.
You ingrateful sot you.
Those German Russians you referenced are known as Volga Deutch. They were encouraged to move there by Catherine the Great most are either Lutheran or Roman Catholic. At the onset of WWII Stalin had moved many of them (There are a number still living along the Volga in Russia.) to Siberia.
