I voted Guam. There are already military recruiters there, they are moving military bases there from japan/okinawa and it doesn't have the level of anti-state thinking that PR does.

You people think small. I say we put some people on the moon permanently and make it a state. We've already got a flag there. It wouldn't take much more effort.

I think none of the above. I think, if anything, the US (much like the British Empire) will gradually turn our territories over to become independent countries. The farthest away will probably go first, Guam and the island territories. Puerto Rico will follow after that. It might even go so far as to see Hawaii return to an independent country by the end of the century.

It's a natural thing. We've already let go of the Philippines.

I would say Puerto Rico, or Washington D.C.(it's not technically a state)

I think FL needs to be split. South FL and north FL are two different worlds. Economically, socially, politically, and culturally..
