I'd prefer the United States of Canada.



Since we're so torn between modernism and traditionalism, let's try a country reflecting each and see which one is still standing in a couple decades.

Who gets Alaska and/or Hawaii?

Who gets Alaska and/or Hawaii?
I dunno.  I'd assume Alaska would be red and Hawaii would be blue, but I really have my heart set on a contiguous US.  Maybe they could hold referendums.

I remember something very similar being said in 1932.

And 1936...

And 1940...

And 1944.

I think the Russians probably want Alaska back.

Hijiri, I imagine her replying to your question, in an old granny's voice

"Deary, I'm not touching that shit with a twenty-foot pole."

In the end, we are all standing in the dark,
trying to figure out why we are here.
But let us not choose one direction
without proof of where it is headed.

Check your pocket for matches
so we can observe and learn together
as fast friends and relative idiots.

No the Russians want the entire Arctic Circle.  More oil there.
