Are you in favor of a 51st state? If so any ideas for a new state?

Why would Puerto Rico want to be a state? They're all already on welfare. I say Guam.

WA should excommunicate King County, and become the "leave me the hell alone" state.

Long Island should separate from NY and stop sending all of our taxes to help balance out NYC. If we do become a state we would be one of the most powerful swing states.

I think upstate NY would want to be it's own state too then. Same reason.

The cost of living is still higher on Long Island than it is upstate so we deserve to keep our money here, but I still get where your coming at.

I lived upstate NY a few years and people there would sometimes say the taxes just go to NYC. Cost of living is lower but so are incomes.

I think the issue here is that the state tries to take care of too much, which should be left to cities. Then NYC could pay for it's own spending.
