In Crimea’s footsteps: Alaska wants to unite with Russia, puts petition forward


A petition entitled “Alaska Back to Russia” has been placed on the US administration’s website and has gathered over 14 thousand signatures in three days. All that despite the fact that that document vanished from the open list of appeals – although the first 150 signatures made it available for voting.


Some experts point out that one should not talk about any tendency for separatism in the US, but one should not take such petitions as a joke either. The authors of the petition – similar to other petitions for the secession of some other US states – are trying to remind the White House about the basis of the state, and specifically about the Declaration of Independence.


A resident of Anchorage, the largest city in the state of Alaska, published his petition a couple of days after Crimea seceded from Ukraine and rejoined Russia. To support his petition he cites the following historic facts: the first Europeans that put their foot on the land of Alaska in 1732 were the crew of the Saint Gabriel vessel, captained by Makhail Gvozdev and Ivan Fedorov. In conclusion the author calls for “seceding Alaska from the US to rejoin Russia”.

I'm all for California becoming part of China.
Maybe China can forgive the debt owed it by the U.S. treasury and we can all start with a clean slate.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Once again, the Native population is being disregarded by wannabe-Russians who dream of "returning ...

well...American stole and massacre Indians (the original residents in U.S. land soil)...
Russian did not kill to regain territory...
