    Acquiring the resources out of siberia has similar technical and logistical problems of economizing environments on other planets. The weather is unearthly there.

    (I mean sure its earth weather but you know what I mean)

It seems like a much better way to build overseas bases than defending South Korea or invading Iraq, and probably cheaper too.

    Not that we have any extra cash lying around. Ironically, 70% of the people in Louisiana and Alaska would be against buying a new territory.
    The biggest problem with that is: do you really WANT the hordes of Mexicans or Kenyans or whatever that would come along with it? We're not going to just brush them all off of the land when we get it. The reason it was ok to sell Louisiana or Alaska is because basically no one was living there. Very few places are like that today.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    I have no problem adopting the entire world into our nation as long as we do so by peaceful means and not by force. And actually Louisiana was populated since at least 12,000 BC by tribes including the Chitimacha, Coushatta, Choctaw, Tunica-Biloxi, Cherokee, Houma, Atakapa, Caddo, Washa, Chawasha, Tunica, Bayogoula, Acolapissa, Quinapisa, Mugulash, Tangipahoa, Okelousa, and Adai peoples, and Alaska has been populated even longer by the Aleut, Inupiat, Yupik, Tlingit, Haida, Tsimshian, and Eyak, among others.
