Someone recently alerted me to oddball interview questions. One of the questions was, "If you were to get rid of one state in the US, which one would it be and why?"
The state I would get rid of would be Hawaii. I would sell it to the people of Japan or China. My plan is very simple. When one is in debt perhaps the fastest way to get your life back is to sell something and use the proceeds to pay the bank back. We as a nation are very much in debt. We owe 16.6 trillion dollars. I would sell a chunk of our land to these wealthy Asian giants. With the money, I'd pay those same folks the money we owe them and wipe out the national debt.
To many, this would be unpopular. But I just hate debt. I would be willing to sacrifice a state, that few Americans will ever visit anyway, to regain our freedom.
