To solve our debt problems, lets sell Alaska Treadwell makes a strong case for a home-grown offer. He notes that of Alaskas 365 million acres, the state government already owns 103 million, which were deeded at the time of statehood. An additional 44 million acres came with the Alaska Native Claims Act. U.S. cash in our till would barely cover a week of federal deficits, but we believe the potential here is worth trillions, especially if we gained freedom to drill it, Treadwell said. Location, location, location.

Nah. Keep AK; sell CA, OR, and Washington.
Who needs a west coast harbor?
Of course, if they sold Alaska but continued spending as they are, it wouldn’t help.
I guess Obama could sell Alaska via executive order.
NAH...let’s sell California and New York and Illinois
Better yet, shouldn’t have brought in Hawaii.
Now that I think about it, I'd like to buy Alaska. How much?
Nuts - sell California...
There is a "better idea" already circulating in Washington.
All told there is over $19 trillion residing in private 401-K and IRA accounts.
Washington simply needs to "borrow" these...and eve3rything will be hunky-dory.
But that is where we all are going to move from Texas when Globull Warming makes it 150 degrees down here.
Yes, and let some other nation, probably China, develop all the resources the libs have blocked domestic development of for years. A pretty logical outcome to liberal deficit spending and environmental whackoism.
From the Washington Post. You could buy them for 17 cents and a bottle of Gatorade right now.
Palin Derangement Syndrome...
Better to, metaphorically, kill the disease of Marxism than dismember one’s country.
Every third post is a lefty, imagining him or her self as clever by making a joke about selling off the Palins.
They don't have the slightest idea why the Palins are worthy of hate, they just know that to be truly cool, according to the beautiful people in hollywood and the media, they have to hate Palins.
Alaska is crippled with federal intervention. Bureaucrats sitting in DC have no clue to what is happening in Western MD or VA, let alone what the real situation is in AK.
Alaska is a Republic waiting to happen if it wasn't for the native welfare population.
The leaders of establishment America are complete fools.
Only God can save us now.
Sell Washington DC and its swampland.
