US Debt - Sell Alaska? 2.5 Trillion?

A recent (Dec 17) article on the idea of selling Alaska of which 69 per cent is owned by the Federal Government could be used to help balance the books.

First in line would be Russia and China as potential buyers.

Perhaps double the 2.5 trillion price could be attained.

p.s. "
The government owns 40 per cent or more of California, Nevada, Oregon, Idaho, Arizona, New Mexico and Wyoming"

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

Just default and tell the banks to pound sand

The money is all to pay interest on debt that was manufactured and part of the fractional reserve lending fraud. Just tell the banks to go to hell and reset the dollar to a dollar, otherwise we are screwed.


Odious debt Jubilee.

If there is a peaceful resolution, that must be a part of it. Of course, only us "very suspicious Americans" want a peaceful resolution...

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Yes, funny how those who save and don't live

beyond their means are considered odd. The world could be such an entirely different place with a few fundamental shifts in thought, but watching the madness that is the holiday season in America makes we think we are doomed. Especially since we have exported this mentality to all reaches of the globe.


Well Hell

It can always be sold for 5 Trillions and be taken back in a few years on the basis of the Doctrine of Pre-emption or some technicality.


Maybe if we just sold

The government owned land across the country, to private US citizens. Just have an auction - the US government has no business owning any of this type of land anyway - for now, they could even keep the national parks - since I am willing to compromise.

Many national parks are "protected" by the UN now.

Here is what that means

in whtiewash-ese, of course.

There Is Hope Of Us Getting Out Of The UN


We need to get an early start on 2016: Support Rand PAC 2016

US National debt

A false debt, a debt created from nothing of any value, created out of thin air, counterfited by foreign owned Federal Reserve Bank COrp. Digitized out of thin air at NO COST, a false compounding debt. To think anyone would be so stupid to actually give anything of value, or any effort to repay such a criminal false compounding debt is really criminaly insane. To post such nonsense is a seperate crime in itself.

Advocating to give Alaska as payment for false debt, OMG. I only shake my head.


Foreign creditors

I don't think they look at it the same way for some reason. Something will indeed have to be given up because I do not think spending is going to diminish anytime soon.

And bringing home the troops is not going to solve all the problems.

Imo the Chinese want Guam and they most likely are not going to care too much on how much they lose monetarily on the deal.


The evidence ...

The evidence would suggest that you might need to re-evaluate your thinking!

Shifting false compounding national debts from one

Rothschild crime bank center in USA to a Rothschild crime bank in China is not a transaction that involves the people of china or the people living in the area known as USA.

It just provides some sense of false justification for war. Hope people dont take the bait. The militaries have become mercinary.

So far as Guam or Alaska well the people living in those areas will need to defend themselves from agression.


What could we get for Washinton DC?

We would still have 50 states left, LOL


Would cost money to do... Similar to hauling the garbage to the dump!

When Fascism goes to sleep, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul!

They already sold some of it back to Russia a few yrs. ago

Something the MSM would not cover, of course. Google it.

How about we

sell your sorry carcass?!

I do not think my hide will fetch much on the open market, perhaps the Chinese will more interested in my other other organs will suffice.



opinion is worth even less...

Default on the federal reserve. That is the only moral solution to the debt I see. Legalize competing currencies. Admit that the Federal Reserve's policies are no less than robbery, and thus, defaulting on them and abolishing them is the only reasonable solution. Paying a illegal debt only validates the debt. We shouldn't lose Alaska (or anything else) simply because the Fed has been robbing us for 100 years.

Free market capitalism isn't right for America because it works better. It's right because it's free (and it works better).

the oil in Alaska is worth

the oil in Alaska is worth more than that alone. Not to mention Gold and other precious metals.

Please put this in your post...

People need to know WHO the debt is owed to. The biggest lie sold is that we the American people owe the debt. That is FALSE.

Debt 100 per cent + of GDP

When this period arises we shall most likely know for certain.

There will eventually have to some type of liquidation of debt, assests, etc. as RP mentioned.
