Disregarding the whole Civil War thing (Americans in general are too wussy to stand up and fight for what they believe in anymore) I think it would be great if more Western states jumped in and challenge this weakling Obama administration and incompetent Congress in literally taking back America from Democrat policies. Over 60% of Alaska is federal land. If the state of Alaska sued to have ANILCA overturned, it would release us from the federal yoke and allow us to deal with Big Oil on our own terms instead of constantly having to wait for years for the Fed to turn down a new oil drilling lease. Not to mention opening up more of the state to fishing, hunting, logging, mining, and tourism. To hell with D.C. and their environmentalist cronies; most of them have never even set foot in Alaska yet act like they know what's best for us.
Heck, now they're even talking about closing Eielson Air Force Base in Fairbanks and displacing over 1,000 military families by moving them all to Anchorage. Yeah, like there's room for all those people in an already tight local housing market! The Feds don't give a rat's ass about us little people, so why should we give a frig about them?
There's people in the world today
Who say they're Jewish, Christian and such,
They're all ignorant fools.
They'll tell you you can't have your own way
unless you pay money and dedicate your life
Or you'll be d*mned in hell. ~ "Faith in God" - Bad Religion
