How about we start a fund to buy an island for a couple thousand people to live on?

So I came across this little island for sale. It has its own fort, wild life and fertile land.

All we need if 5 million bucks. Has security food and is not too far from home for Americans.

who is down?




Isle for sale, 19th century fort included

Harold Cushing calls his fortified island in the Gulf of Maine, 'a little kingdom.' For $4.85 million, the keys to the kingdom are yours.

Star to you!!
Check is in the mail.

I dunno, the place looks abit small for farming and the trips to the piggly wiggly are gonna kill us on fuel.
Off of Maine too, kind cold I'd think.

oh hell yeah....any names for our new country? It has to be catchy but not so much so we get allot of attention and invaded because our people protest our inhumane living conditions and cause an international incident.

A couple thousand people seems quite a lot for this little island, not?
Make it 20-30 and you might have a nice life.

I almost did the same thing with 15 friends last year (a small Greek island it was)... When we showed our interest to the owner the price suddenly went up 500% ... a pity.

Naming can be tricky, but pretty much anything seems to go with "stan", and as long as you are not one of the stans with natural resources no one cares about your living conditions. God help you if oil is discovered anywhere the island though.

Oh yea! An island in greece Id so be in!!
But to be honest why but the island?
When I was in Rhodes last year I saw a derelict building being squatted by chaps that seemed to be enjoying a cushdy life... I can play guitar so I could make a cash in hand living in Faliraki and live quite comfortably in a greek squat... and it'd be a lot cheaper!

im sure this will be more common very soon.


imagine if a bunch of americans teamed up, and bought an island, SECEDED, and said "we are going to be even MORE free than america" and they made a better constitution that prevented corporations from ever taking over the island, and everyone was truly free there, and the government could not break into your home and tell you what to do, AT ALL, unless you were doing something bad like stealing, etc.


islands name: America 2 (side notes: because the first one is no good anymore )



lol this would be such a massive statement, people would say "wow people actually got sick of all the oppression and made their own country"


peace.

If you send me your bank details - I'm in
I have money to invest to build a Shopping Mall, Sports Stadium and Government and Military buildings plus maybe a bunker or two.
God it is so frustrating having Billions to spend and nothing much left to buy

I agree...so...the first 30 to reply? Crap, I don't have 1/30th of $5 milliion. But I do have a boat!

And I know how to sew, and cook, and garden, and am a great child care provider! I even speak Spanish!

Vote for me! (and Pedro
