Are all those tiny New England states really necessary?

Why not just take the states between NY and Maine and just mash them all into one normal sized state? Just call it New England.

And we could combine NJ, DE & MD into a single state too... Maybe call it Shittsburgh? I dunno.

If anyone brings up redistricting states, they will commit political suicide as that would be the final nail in the coffin of "States Rights" if the feds reorganize them at a whim.

I think all states smaller than Alaska should be combined into Alaska sized states. Something similar should be done for countries smaller than the US.

Everything west of Idaho can be called "Awesomeland" and everything southeast of (and including) Missouri as "Craphole".

In theory it works for forums. Not sure about countries. We could combine P&N, VC&G, and GG&P. Anything else you'd need an IQ test to post.

Being the biggest in New England, Maine is the closest state in New England to being a normal sized state. The others can be lumped together and us Mainers can still live in Vacationland.

So who do you work for a map maker or a flag maker?

Why would geographic size matter though? Wouldn't you want to do it by population?

Let's just call Hawaii a territory instead of a state too.

Territory? Colony!

And we'll make Alaska our Australian-style penal colony. Hell, they're more than halfway there anyway. :p

each of those states has a GDP vastly larger than many "normal sized" states...and a population to match.

Actually, the New England states used to be much bigger. But then those pushy New Yawkas started shoving them up into that tiny corner, and they got smaller. Really. Trust me! :sneaky:

Hey now... unlike those commies in Massachusetts, some New England residents still like living in a free state where they're allowed to buy guns without a permit and aren't forced to buy health insurance yet.

These guys are a bunch of fucktards, no credibility, no support, and about as fringe as crazies can get.

3. Does this mean you want to make Southern Arizona part of Mexico?

A. Absolutely not. It is our stated purpose to remain part of the United States. We also, as a movement, do not want to “open the borders,” “let all the illegals in and live off the dole,” etc. Our movement even includes people who believe that our border with Mexico should be totally sealed off. Start Our State does not have a singular vision for how our new state government should run; we plan to elect our own state legislature to debate these issues and pass laws addressing the issue. Most importantly, our state legislature will debate the issue REASONABLY.

fucking illegals need to gtfo

You guys go crazy we with the states.

We're nearly your size and we have only 6. And that's probably too many.
