I have an even better idea. Let’s let all of those people who want to be a state move to the mainland and then those of us who are true patriots, conservatives, and want a minimal government all move to the island and make it our own country.
You could all move there anyway, and then vote for Independence. It would only take about a million votes.
Wouldn’t it tip over?
I love the island and am of partial descent myself. I would be thrilled to move there.
