    Would you be ok with:

    DC statehood in a scenario where we maintain having 50 States and 100 US Senators and 435 representatives?

    So DC gets a House seat in addition to their 2 senators. 3 electoral votes. 1 house seat gets pulled from somewhere else, maybe a NY or CA.

    Remove both Alaska and Hawaii as states, they shouldn't be states anyway as they aren't contiguous; they should be commonwealths/territories just like Guam or Puerto Rico.

    Add Chicago as a state, pulling from Northeast Illinois and the farthest northwest two counties in Indiana (i.e. merge Chicagoland). The city of Chicago can become Chicago City and the capital of the new State of Chicago.

    So Indiana loses an electoral vote, the newly formed Chicago state gets about 8 [blue] electoral votes (6 house and 2 senators), Illinois becomes a solid red state with 9 electoral votes (7 house and 2 senators).

    Fair trade off or no? Alaska and Hawaii really don't belong as states, especially now that you can't get to either without a vax.

    Who's the junkie exactly? You play make believe by continously pushing such asinine bs as "junkies don't get an input" but I don't play make believe so what drugs are you exactly on Tranny? We already know estrogen but what about street drugs? Inform me because I have no experience with hard drugs outside of psychedelics when I was a teen. Do tell Tranny!

    It's just that... Illinois is not a blue state. It's a large red state with a big ass blue in' city dragging down the whole state like a chunk of lead on a yacht, like a turd stain on one corner of a golden toilet bowl. I've hung around different parts of the state and it's bull that one small overcrowded brainwashed ty urban area can destroy an entire state whose economic heartbeat and iden y is food, agriculture, farming and small town life... one ty metro in the far northeast corner of an enormous state can decide that an elitist megalomaniac dictator like (F)JB Pritzker can take over the entire state and impose communazi laws, regulations and draconian mandates on a midwestern rural republican farming state, raising taxes and the cost of living, gas, etc for EVERYONE in the entire state all because of one hole city.

    and 99.8% of violent crime...

    but under "urban" you're including everything that is not rural. So you're including urban, ghetto, suburban, and exurban not rural. All 5 of those categories are distinctly different and present in almost every state (yeah, you won't really find urban or ghetto in Wyoming) and have distinctly different demographics and, in general, partisan views, leans and trends.

    equal represention in the US Senate is an absurd anachronism and inherently anti-democratic. for that matter, so is a capped number of US reps.

    Oh and I forgot to add one more classification: College town. Because that deserves its own category.

    -Urban: downtowns, inner / medium to high density-building portions of large cities. Racially and ethnically diverse; deep blue trending even bluer
    -Ghetto: outside of urban, outside of commercial districts of large cities; high-crime neighborhoods. Racially majority Black and Latino. Deep blue, slightly trending red
    -Suburban: between ghetto and exurban; low-density SFH, typically nicer, lower-crime, white-majority, more upscale, oft-HOA type neighborhoods. Purple, trended blue last 15 years; could trend back red?
    -Exurban: smaller cities and towns outside of larger metro areas, smaller stand-alone US cities not a part of large metro area, industrial towns. Large white majority, red, trended strongly red in last 15 years and should continue trending red
    -College Towns: self explanatory; towns with mid-size to large colleges and universities. Racially and ethnically diverse, deep dark blue and will always be deep dark blue.
    -Rural: small towns not part of metro area, farms and ranches outside towns, large-acreage residences, off-the-grid residences. Very large white majority and deep red trending even further red.
