The United States of America is a vast and diverse nation, comprising 50 individual states, each with its unique strengths and contributions to the country’s overall power and influence. While power can be difficult to quantify, several factors, including economic strength, political clout, cultural influence, and military presence, help us identify the top 5 most powerful U.S. states.
This article explores these factors to determine which states hold the most significant sway in the powerful empire nation.
Israel, a state of just over 9,000,000 people, is clearly the most powerful US State in the Nation.
Over the last 75 years since its EuroColony created existence, it has received the most money from US Taxpayers and has used these monies to build up its cyber security economy which is NOW the #1 surveillance state in the world. It has a large military dwarfing anything the other states can claim.
According to Congress, since the U.S. support for the creation of Israel in 1948, to date, the United States has provided Israel $158 billion in cash. This does NOT count the amount of arms and nukes provided to them. And it certainly does NOT count for any new stuff they will give to its most important state for the Genocide in Gaza.
2. BLACK ROCK INVESTMENT COMPANY
BlackRock, Inc. is an American multinational investment company based in New York City. Founded in 1988, initially as an enterprise risk management and fixed-income institutional asset manager, BlackRock is the world’s largest asset manager. As of 2023, BlackRock has about $10 trillion in assets under management, about 40% of the GDP of the United States (nominal $25.347 trillion in 2022). Run by one man, the current most powerful man in the USA, Larry Fink, its relative GDP is larger than any other state.
Wyoming is the least populated state in the US, with a total population of 578,000 in 2021, and is about the same size as the backwater desert city of Tucson Arizona. Yet it has 2 US Senators who wield tremendous power in the United States Senate. In comparison, California with a population of over 40,000,000, about 70 times the size of Wyoming also has 2 US Senators. I bet our founding fathers did NOT see that coming! In Wyoming’s case, it’s cheap and easy for corporations to purchase those Senate seats because the population is so low.
Since the war began, the Biden administration and the U.S. Congress have directed more than $75 billion in assistance to Ukraine, which includes humanitarian, financial, and military support, according to the Kiel Institute for the World Economy, a German research institute. And more are coming! That is powerful stuff. Imagine if New Mexico got that money, they could rebuild their roads made from GOLD!
Texas is often referred to as the “Lone Star State,” but it is anything but lonely when it comes to power. This state is known for its energy resources, including oil, natural gas, and renewable energy. Texas’ economy is the second-largest in the nation, and its influence extends to sectors such as technology, aerospace, and healthcare. Furthermore, its political clout is substantial, with 38 electoral votes, making it a significant player in presidential elections. Texas also boasts a strong cultural identity, especially in areas like country music and Tex-Mex cuisine. Plus, they have lots of guns that scare the shit out of everyone including all their school children.
By the way, California failed to make the list because, with over 40 million people and just 2 Senators, they have the same power at the federal level as Wyoming and that sucks! Plus, by the time they vote in presidential elections, it is already over so they do NOT matter.
The United States is a union of 50 states plus that very special one that every American knows their monies goes to called Israel. Each state has unique attributes and makes contributions to the nation’s power and influence. While the concept of power can be subjective and multifaceted, states like Israel, Black Rock, Ukraine, Wyoming, and Texas clearly emerge as some of the most powerful. These states combine economic prowess, political clout, cultural influence, and military presence to play an outsized role in shaping the country’s future and its standing on the global stage. The power dynamics among these states are sure to continue evolving as the United States faces new challenges and opportunities in the years to come.
