I had a great idea. We should invade Cuba, and make it our 51st state. Then, the Cubans who are wanting to get to America will already be there! [:D] Maybe Mexico could be next! hehehe Okay, I'm done.

You could probably get minimal support for East California. Course, you'd probably be assassinated.

Northern California needs to break away from the liberal Southern California. Without us they wouldn't survive and without them we wouldn't have to put up with their stupid laws they pass down there, since they do have a majority of the voting population. We'd have to make the state line right above San Francisco, SF is a lost cause... bkss67

I remember in the 1970s that Bella Abzug and her crew tried to mount a campaign in NooYawkCitty to make it the 51st state. Too bad they didn't succeed....would have saved the rest of America a lot of time, trouble and money.

Puerto Rico is the 51st state. Ask any New Yorker.

Mexico? MEXICO?!? YOU WANT MEXICO!?!? Jeessus, I have been to Mexico, it is a giant latrine, and there is NOTHING there that you want. I wish we could blast the whole country into space. I like the food, though. radioman

I don't hold myself out to be much of a constitutional expert but isn't that very specifically outlawed in the U.S. Constitution?

Do you think you could slide that state line to include the East Bay Area? Maybe we could trade the east bay for Marin County.

I know about 8 or 10 years ago, it was all the talk around the Redding surrounding area and even a few counties from NE Nevada. TAC

Man, when are you guys going to get it right? It's not a north/south issue, it's an east/west issue! :) You need West and East California, with the border running along the coast, giving West California all the land on the coast up to 30 miles inland. The rest goes to East California. However, if you must have a north/south border, Southern California should include Marin County. That's something I could live with. :)

The only problem with not including the East Bay with our new North CA state is that Oakland and the surrounding areas have an immense amount of guns, the way I see it is that if the SHTF the East Bay is sort of like our little storage arsenal. Only problem I see is with all those HomeBoy sights they have on the Tec DC 9's will take a little getting used to.......... bkss67

I am willing to trade the North all of Atlanta, GA, Richmond VA, the entire state of Mississippi, and New Orleans LA, in exchange for Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. I'll add Alabama if you throw in Colorado sans Denver. If interested, e-mail BigChiefCrappingCattle@yahoo.com so we can begin the paperwork.

What's the point? Any new state would still be subject to unconstitutional Federal laws.

No matter which you choice we would still need a name for the new state. Hmmmmmm, how about calling it simply the "Gun" state.

I think you can form a new state out of an existing state so long as the state legislature and congress approve. U.S. Constitution, Article IV, Section 3.
