I'd say Puerto Rico. It's funny, just the other day I was watching CNN and they were talking about Hillary Clinton campainging in Puerto Rico. Just weird I guess.

I also think of this, I live in Wisconsin and There is the UP of Michigan north of us. I think that it should be it's own state. I guess it would be different but cool.

South Florida should be it's own state, it's like a different country down here. (which is both a negative and a positive)

Why is Bermuda on the list? It doesn't belong to the US.

I was in Guam this past December. BEAUTIFUL place. The people I talked to are very happy not being a state and not paying federal taxes. I can't say I blame them.

LOL, god bless the US education system!

why is Bermuda on here? It's BRITISH territory. Might as well throw Cuba and Alberta in the poll....

I figured I'd get a little heat for putting Bermuda on the poll. But here is why I did it.

Bermuda's currency is the Bermudian dollar, which ispegged to the US dollar. US notes and coins are used interchangeably with Bermudian notes and coins within the islands for most practical purposes; however, banks levy a small exchange rate for the purchase of US dollars with Bermudian dollars.
