Sorry Tsar Putin, Alaska is America.

No America without Alaska.

If he DID move on Alaska, would the folks there be pissed off, or happy about getting a tax break?

Per Wiki: The Russian Crown sought to repay money to its landowners after its emancipation reform of 1861 and borrowed 15 million pounds sterling from Rothschilds at 5% annually. When the time came to repay the loan, the Russian Government was short on funds. The Emperor’s brother, Grand Prince Konstantin Nikolaevich offered to sell something useless.

Alaska could make a deal with Russia and secede from the US and become an independent republic. And honestly, because Amerika is now an oligarchy run by establishment elites, Alaska would probably be better off. An Alaskan secession could lead to a total US breakup.

I am sure if you offered Elmendorf AFB to the Russians for a nicely located TU-22M Backfire base they would be quite receptive...

That could be a better deal for Alaskans than US martial law under 0bama and Reid.
You’ve got to believe that people have been talking about this stuff up there.
