Texas got the most votes by a wide majority in this poll for some reason (about 3/5ths down the page: http://www.Businessinsider.Com/poll-how-americans-feel-about-the-states-2013-8 )

Probably because there are also Texans who don't want to be Americans.

I completely agree. Texas would be perfectly fine without us, and we would be all the better without them.

Texas wouldn't really be "fine" without us. With their crappy education, their high poverty level, and the fact that they take far more in federal dollars than they contribute, they'd collapse.

Theyd probably look just as bad as Mexico in a few years on their own

Seriously, can I just vote Detroit? Until then, Texas.

I love NY! It's my home state.

California is helping us fight global warming by giving us more miles per gallon in our cars and using natural gas instead of coal.

Actually, Texas contributes more than it spends. It could be a country all on its own, not a very good country, but I personally just want it out of the United States.

Nevada.
TheCommonMan says2013-12-04T20:24:39.2979139-06:00
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).
Nyx999 says2013-12-04T20:39:17.5885364-06:00
Why Nevada?
yay842 says2013-12-04T20:39:54.0608688-06:00
Neva been to Nevada before?

Nope, not really.

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.

Most of the people who live in or near beaches and big cities in California basically worship it... Therefore it would make sense for it to be it's own independent country.

Georgia. This state su**s it own *** with a straw!

America is like a train with 1 locomotive ( New York ) and 19 boxcars ( the other states)
