    As a Canadian I followed your 2000 election and Florida recount and now twelve years later i am chuckling when i see the Florida 2012 voting debacle.My American friends let me suggest a solution to your election woes: let Florida go.
    Your map will improve esthetically ,49 states is a better mathematical number,49 is a perfect square number.What does Florida have but fluff:Disney world,cruises,strip clubs....fluff! I am certain Floridians won't mind after all we all know there is a significant Jewish population in Florida and they are already familiar with the motto : let my people go.
    So my friends do it before 2016,Let Florida Go and on election night 2016 you will have a definitive result within two hours and you will be able to go to sleep early and with a smile knowing the world is smiling with you.
