Sorry - we don't want any Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, or New Mexico stuff. Y'all can keep all that.

Alabama here. We would annex the westernmost counties of the Florida Panhandle. Florida nearly sold it to us in 1869, but the deal fell through. That would give us Pensacola, Fort Walton Beach, Panama City, and two big military bases. Not to mention a ton of tourist revenue.

Or, failing that, grab Chattanooga and Columbus, Georgia.

I did not know that about West Florida. A shame Alabama didn't score those additional beaches.

And taking Chattanooga into AL would requite a bit of gerrymandering.

Why would Texas want New Mexico when they can just come over in droves all summer long and then leave back to whence they came.

Texas drives the economy of several mountain towns thanks to tourism.

I don't guess that New Mexico would want that to come to an end, so apparently it's working out well for everyone.

Living in Maryland I'd say annex Delaware and merge it into the Eastern Shore.

Louisiana doesn't want Shreveport either.
