    Shucks why not go the whole hog and include Canada into the US of A, at least they have the advantage of being able to speak and understand English (even if some of them speak French), Think what this vast influx of folk would do to Obama care.

    The most sensible suggestion I have read thus far in this thread is that of legalizing drugs.

    Now that would be a shaker, but I doubt it will ever happen in the US as some of those who make US law profit handsomely from this illicit activity.

    Well instead of annexing Mexico and possibly Canada, there's always joining them in a supranational North American Union.

    Its already severely impacting our economy. Its not practical but id be all for it...not just our 51st but break it into smaller pieces and make it 51 through 60.

    Methinks making it one state would result in a really big state - perhaps several states?

    That said, if actually done it would be a decades-long process, what with the bureaucracy we have these days.

    I'm fully in favor of a political reunification with Canada. There are fewer cultural differences between the United States and Canada-- separated for over 200 years-- than there are between the Koreas who've been separated for fifty.

    Is say we just give them back Texas instead.

    We've got less in common culturally with Texas than we do with Canada.

    No- we already have enough mouths to feed.

    If you give them back Texas, it will become the country of Texas and Mexico will become incorporated. I assure that Texans will refuse to be ruled by a worse kleptocracy than we already have .

    Meh, they'll just try to change the Mexican History books or something.
