The United States is For Freedom – or is It?

The state of Alaska has just recently started a petition to secede from the US and join Russia. It currently has 18,000 votes and has until April 20 to get 100,000 votes. If they get this many, the Obama Administration will give a formal response. Alaska actually was purchased in 1867 from Russia, but it was still quite surprising that there is a movement to return to Russia.

Alaska isn’t the only state that has voted to secede from the United States. Almost every state in the Union has had a secession movement in recent years. Texas, not surprisingly, had at least 100,000 votes to secede and to also require a response from the White House. Alaska, should she gain the required 100,000 votes necessary for a response, will most likely get the same response other states did: Forget it. Freedom is great, but forget it. We know you don’t want to remain part of the US, but forget it. We hear you, but tough – “…our states remain united.”

This was the exact reply, “Our founding fathers established the Constitution of the United States ‘in order to form a more perfect union’ through the hard and frustrating but necessary work of self government. They enshrined in that document the right to change our national government through the power of the ballot — a right that generations of Americans have fought to secure for all. But they did not provide a right to walk away from it.”

Actually, once upon a time, the states voluntarily agreed to form a union of states, with the understanding that they could voluntarily leave it. That would be freedom. After the “Civil War”, it was clear that this was not ever going to be a real possibility. Americans would be satisfied with the guise of freedom. The federal government would be blind to the fact that the states would have no desire to leave the Union if the government was good, healthy, honest, minimal, and strong.

We don’t blame some Alaskans for wanting to secede. Unfortunately, as far as we can tell, the United States government is utterly opposed to freedom in America. Though the US frequently gives support to “freedom fighters” around the globe, they are very stingy about freedom in America, the “homeland”. Why is that? When there’s a rebellion in another country, they help the revolutionaries there, but are currently working to take away our rights (such as our 1st and 2nd amendments) and they certainly won’t let Alaska or any other state get any serious secession movement going.

Sorry, Alaska.

    I can’t imagine for one moment that the American Government would like the idea of Russia having a direct border with the USA!!

    • Yeah, even though Alaska does not actually touch the other contiguous states, it would be disconcerting for sure. The weird thing is that Alaska not only wants to secede, Alaska wants to be part of Russia. We guessed that that was because Alaska is not able to stand on its own and so must join another existing nation. We hope the US gets its act together because obviously a lot of people are unhappy – even in Alaska which is so remote.
