    Thousands Sign Petition For Alaska To Secede And Rejoin Russia

    We must have a lot of stupid people in this country.

    Thousands Sign White House Petition For Alaska To Secede And Rejoin Russia CBS DC

    WASHINGTON (CBS DC) – A new White Housepetition has been launched calling for the state of Alaska to secede from the U.S. and rejoin Russia.
    The petition – called “Alaska Back to Russia” — has nearly 30,000 signatures after being created March 21 by S.V. of Anchorage.

    The petitioner does not explain or provide any reason why Alaska should rejoin Russia, but just states: “Vote for secession of Alaska from the United States and joining Russia.”

    Meh, as far as some of these White House petitions go, this is fairly tame. They get some real whackadoodle ideas.

    I'm anxious to know why they believe Putin would "adopt" Alaska?

    I'm curious to know why some people here think Putin would be the guy whose leadership it would be good to live under.

    The idea of Alaska seceding is not that far fetched but what is - is their demands that Russia absorb them.

    I wonder if: "we also demand that Russia absorb the country of Alaska" is also on the petition.

    I hope the petitioners aren't waiting for Russia to come to their aide.
