re: #129 Backwoods_Sleuth
Puerto Rico has more American citizens than Wyoming, Montana and the Dakotas COMBINED. So yes, they should be a State. (the Virgin Islands is too small to be a state; their 100k people should just be lumped in with Puerto Rico for a combined State.)
DC I’m a little more conflicted about; they’d be one of the least populous states, and a pretty high percentage of the people who live there are only there for a specific administration, they have permanent addresses (and voter registration) in wherever it is they came from. Maybe the people who are really truly permanent DC residents should get to register as “adjunct voters” in Virginia or Maryland?
