What do you think about the idea of the U.S. scrapping the states it has and coming up woth a smaller number (say 13 for historical significance) and redraw the boundaries for 13 much larger states?

On its face it seems like the government could save so much more money in overhead costs (similar to economics of scale) because they would only have to pay for 13 governors, 13 boards of education, etc... and interstate commerce would be simplified because there would be less states.

Of course, people have their "state pride" and laws differ between states so I wonder how much of a problem it would cause.

Obviously, this will never happen. I'm just curious if you would mind if your state joined with surrounding states and if you think it would be better.

I'm from Louisiana and although we're suppose to have this unique culture and law, it wouldn't bother me at all.
