    I hope for them that they get in, but I have my doubts .... they have to get past the Tea Party in the House.

    51 is an uneven number and makes me nervous. I like even numbers. Maybe we can let Canada be the 52 state.

    I haven't heard them take a position. I don't think they oppose it. After the TP cost them the opportunity to take the Senate, the GOP is going to cut them loose. They were only good enough as long as it won them elections.

    When Canada wants to do that, it's fine with me. Everytime the seperatists in Quebec make noise, the Atlantic provinces talk about joining the US anyway.

    Or cut one loose. Any favourites?

    It will come down to 2 things....

    The island will have to be renamed Port Rico and they will have to accept English as their only official language. That will be the Tea Party and their backers that will demand that, and well..

    I would probably let Texas cede. They have been asking for years.

    I think Florida has shown through its many election fiascos that it isn't quite ready to be a state yet. Problem solved.
