We're deeply in debt, so let's think big. Imagine that you own 50 properties; wouldn't you consider selling the biggest liability, one that costs more than it brings in? One that is worth enough to pay off your entire debt? In this case a property big enough to raise $14 trillion. Think Alaska.

Geographically, Alaska would make the most sense. I don't know why someone brought up California, that state takes up the majority of the left coast.
In a bold and unexpected move, Gov. George W. Bush announced Friday that he would sell Alaska if elected president. The proceeds would not go toward paying off the national debt, but would instead be converted to cash and dropped on taxpayers from low-flying airplanes.
Bush said after his announcement Friday at a child pornographer's convention in Salt Lake City. "It makes more than sense. It makes sensibility."
