    Would You Support Splitting The U.S. Into 13 Commonwealths?

    If you have ever played a Fallout game you must know about the U.S. before the Great War, anyways it was split into 13 commonwealths:


    Would you support merging the 50 sates into 13? I think this would be a good idea s it reduces the number of state governments from 50 to 13. I believe part of America's problems stem form the fact it has 50 different states and 50 diffrent governments to go with them aswell.

    For anyone curious the flag was changed to this:

    I see no positive gain and people having less control of their local government.

    3 or 4 is more logical but I love the symbolism of 13.

    Heck no!

    Why would less states be better? What would this change?

    The only thing this would do is take us one step closer to outright nationalization.

    The individual states are a hedge against the tyranny of a central government and need to be preserved for that purpose.

    Not seeing how much pride can be derived by claiming "I hail from the great commonwealth of North!"

    Man, tough question.

    I love Fallout, but I don't want to split...

    Wait, did I just agree with you on something?
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Among the power elite in SoCal right now there would be a great gnashing of teeth - you just cut off their water and most of their resources. All they have left are deserts and hollywood, oh and gambling and prostitution.
