    Should we ask other countries to join our federation of states since so many of their citizens like to participate into our politics. We should just include britain, france, and germany as a three new states so that they can actually vote for Obama in 2012.

    IF Britain joined, would Northern Ireland rejoin Ireland?

    I don't know if you were serious about this but there is no reason why any country can't join our union and be its own state with compete internal autonomy just like any other state has in the union. A country like cuba could join us and still be communist if they want.

    Puerto Rico should have been a state years ago. All the benefits of a US citizen, none of the taxes. Kinda like Iraq.

    Aren't those the seven new states President Obama visited during the campaign?
