Advice to America: sell Alaska

This could be one of the smartest property deals in history. It is time for the Americans, who bought low, to sell high.

This is the check used to buy Alaska in what was maybe the smartest property deal in history. It is time for the Americans, who bought low, to sell high.

Note to Obama: Sell Alaska to the Russians. They sold it to the United States in 1867 for practically nothing – $7.2 million.  Buy low. Sell high.

Also ditch Texas to the Mexicans. And Louisiana to the French. Why not everything for sale? The Canadians might like Michigan, or North Dakota.

A smaller America would be a happier and more prosperous America and less likely to get ideas above its station.  

I promise you this is a much better plan than handing bungs to the bankers and other great American failures.
