Hawaii wasn't an option, but that's what I would pick. It's the least useful of all of the states as far as economic contribution and it is so far away from the motherland. Given the fact that it is composed of only islands and it is surrounded by volcanoes, there are a lot of potential natural disasters that the US would have to deal with. The only thing it's good for is tourism, but there are plenty of other states that are good for tourism (ex. New York).
I have to admit, i take offense to my state being the most voted for state on the list, but what pisses me off the most is peoples reasons stated, they are all because of bias against a certain group that is stereotypical in California (btw, we have more non-liberals than you know if you would actually look at a political map of california). Come on guys, why can't Democrats and Republicans work TOGETHER to get something productive done? I have been saying this for a long time, both parties need to work together rather than against each other.
