    If you support it, the pros are:1. It expands American presence over the entire continent, which is our manifest destiny and creates a buffer against Russian or European intrigue on our continent.2. It gives us a gateway to the Pacific and greater access to Asia, which European nations are colonizing.3. It would compel us to build a stronger navy.4. It would make us one of the largest countries in the world.5. We could buy it relatively cheap.6. We would thus become a great world power.If you choice to oppose it, the cons of the purchase are:1. Alaska is uninhabitable.2. We have limited access to Alaska, which makes it very difficult to defend. A strong nation could easily take control of it and we would be a laughing stock.3. There are few known natural resources in Alaska (remember it’s 1867 – oil is not important yet).4. It is not important to our access to Asia. We can find other ways to expand our influence in the region.
