I agree with the Alaska and Hawaii estimate and thought of that before opening the article. It would take more resources for any one state to invade either of those states and most states would have to cross another state to even be in a position to invade. They could sit it out while the others beat up on each other, storing resources and building assets at that time. It would mean a much weaker opposition to them when someone was left who was finally willing to turn their eyes on those states. They may not come out on the very top, but they will be one of the last standing.

I posted it after reading the first few paragraphs, then went back to read the rest.

Interesting analysis! I have a hard time thinking California could overtake the Pacific Northwest, though, because we have an awful lot of military resources here...

I think Alaska too, at least on playing defense. Perhaps I was thinking more of seccesion. Heck - just secede and let the gov’t figure it out some day.

“Hey - anybody heard from Alaska lately?”

Hawaii would die quickly. They can't live without ships arriving every day. Fuel for power comes in by ships. Not many people have air conditioning in their home due to the high cost of electricity. Food comes in by ships.

I've been there twice and studied their history and how they live now. I checked a grocery store and prices are really high because it all comes by ship. If you live in Hawaii and buy something from this country, your shipping charge raises the cost of that item so high you will think twice before you order it.

If no ships come, Hawaii dies. Planes can't get enough of anything there, it must be ships. Ships allow the many people who live there now, to live. Before ships, not many people lived on those islands.

I would not want to be in Hawaii surrounded by undrinkable water and no food or anything else coming in.
