  •  Here's an idea (7+ / 0-)

    If they don't like government, and the population of the Great Plains is shrinking, and the climate is going to start turning western Kansas into the Chihuahuan Desert, why don't we just merge a few states?  

    Combine Kansas and Nebraska into one state.  Combine the Dakotas into a single state.  Get rid of four Republican senators in one go, and probably a house seat too.

    Then give Statehood to Puerto Rico and maybe to the Marianas and Guam too - top it off at 50 states.
