    It's been a while since the US admitted any new states, are there any new states you're predicting will join the union in the near future? Is there any territory that you would like to see join the union?

    i think we are fine the way we are--- we already can't supposed the nation so why add more?... but since PR has US birth certificates, i would imagine they will be next.

    I think the country has more than it can deal with already. Maybe at some point when the economy stabilizes but I don't see that happening in the immediate future. But agree PR will probably be next if it happens at all.

    PR is a commonwealth and they will never be a state. They don't want to be. I don't know if there will be any new states any time soon and I don't see the need for it anyway.

    We have enough states already that we can't support. Maybe we should sell California to pay for our debts. Razz
