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.
Doesn’t the Feds own most of the territory in Alaska thus what size would AK be should it remove itself from the USA?
North to Alaska.
North, the rush is on.
I’ve seen a Louisiana and a Texas Petition, so far. Probably many more to come.
“Doesnt the Feds own most of the territory in Alaska thus what size would AK be should it remove itself from the USA?”
Well, first off it wouldn’t be called Alaska. It would be called East Russia.
Well I suppose they could offer to sell it back to Russia
Am I crazy for thinking life would be better under Putin than Baraq Hussein?
If this was serious, the Alaskans would arrange their own vote - not ask the White House.
However, it may be a movement by Native Americans to gain an autonomous region independent of the state and national government. Probably to claim oil that is currently held by the state or the Feds. Then the money goes to a small group of Natives instead of the whole state of Alaska.
“Ive seen a Louisiana and a Texas Petition, so far. Probably many more to come.’
Just looked and saw Georgia and Missouri as well...
I Alaska became it sown country, I’d be the first to move...
Alaska can go ahead and leave. They already rec more in Federal funds than they return. The Federal Gov should sell off the federal lands to the highest bidder and let the Alaskans fend for themselves. Buh, bye.
Sorry...I know too many in Alaska to have any pity for their so called plite. Fooey. Just go.
Why go to a “whitehouse.gov” site to put your name on a list there?
YES certifiably batsh*t crazy
In at least one way, no. They don’t have much truck with idiotic PC over there.
I’m not so sure, thinking Russian Orthodox definitely beats Muslim....
thet had better learn to speak russian if they are truly serious about “wanting” to be a separate country cause they won’t be separate long before they are truly taken over by another country
When we moved to the MatSu from back east in early 90’s, I had a neighbor who had homesteaded his place in 42. Came to Alaska when he was like 20. He passed away a few years back at the age of 94, drove his van clear up to Eagle on the Yukon for a visit when he was 92 years old. He would tell me how it use to be when he first arrived, back when all the Anchorage people thought the Japanese were coming, ha ha. He said nowadays, Alaskans are all just becoming Americans; not radical freedom loving like the Gold Rush People were that were still alive when he came to Alaska. He also told me that during the statehood vote, most Alaskans didn’t want to become a state; wanted to remain like the Phillapines. Alaskans knew they couldn’t afford state govt, they’d be taxed to death. He said the feds brought in 20,000 military prior to the vote, then changed the law so that they could vote, why it passed. I really do think most Alaskans would vote to remain a state though, even all the Repubs; as we do have more freedom here than anywhere’s else in lower 48. I live in an unorganized borough, no local govt, no taxes, no LEOs, no services, nobody to call and complain to, and everybody thinking they run the show and everybody else telling them to shove it where the sun don’t shine. Everybody is armed for bear protection and has’nt been a murder in 30 years, no crime and a bunch of good Indians and kooky White People that would be locked up if they lived in the city. I couldn’t live anywheres else and really be happy.
Only if they leave us their immediate past governor.
I hear Canada is not nice this time of year.
(Take off, for the Great White North, eh?)
I'll have what he's drinking.
