I’ve advocated for years having the United States expand by admitting more states to the Union. For some reason, many fellow conservatives here find that blasphemous. In fact, many of them actually advocate having existing states secede from the Union. I don’t understand why. So long as the new states adopt the Constitution, we should continue to admit more of them.

Well, that’s the flaw in the plan: you might admit new states and wind up with a bunch of voters who don’t really understand or appreciate the Constitution — kind of like what has happened with California and New York. I don’t know how you would check the tendency towards deviationism.

Like Baja California or Sonora? No way! (Imagine the tax burden). Its bad enough when 35% of them are already in the US anyway.
