    You are the one using a map from a Fallout wiki to make a claim. If the game cant be used as a argument against your idea, then why even use the game reference?


    So in lieu of a intelligent map your idea falls flat on its face.

    For anyone curious the flag was changed to this:
    Interstate conflicts are nearly non-existent, and those which do pop up do nothing to bog down the day-to-day business of the country. The United States is the most solidly-cohesive federation in the world among constituent states which have any real sovereignty (no, not even Canada is as cohesive). The entire premise of this poll is based on not knowing anything about the subject matter. There is no "bureaucracy" which stems from having 50 states instead of 13.

    For anyone curious the flag was changed to this:
    It is not the state or state governments where the problem lies. The problem lies in Washington D.C. regardless of 50 states or 13 commonwealths.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Well, if you'd like us to follow Fallout as a guide for what to do, we could annex Canada, too.

    The only possible upside I can imagine is the lower taxpayer cost of having to maintain 13 Commonwealths versus 50 States. I would imagine the local County and City governments would remain the same?

    I don't think the difference would amount to much as far as savings.

    There has to be a war with China first. I also do not see the Bureau of Alcohol, Drugs, Tobacco, Firearms and Lasers existing yet.

    Why would it be lower?
