Bunk. Move them back to Maryland where they belong. No way DC needs two Senators. As far as moving the capitol, move it to the hardest to reach point in Kansas
DC, as a state, would not be able to support itself. He’ll, it can’t even govern itself right now. Could you believe a Gov. Marion Barry?
But Criswell of Criswell Predicts said Wichita KS would be the new capitol of the US.
But then he also predicted the world would be destroyed several years back.
Put them on a Mountain top or the Desert floor.
Take away the fancy restaurants, put them on some old Military Base, raise their pay to say 2 Million, let them hire their own staffs - no law against nepotism spend what you want on staff, it comes out of your salary.
Couple of Spartan years they will have a chance to get some work done without a whole lot of distraction.
Provide them the same as Military.
Quarters, meals and security.
Put them ALL there, Pres, VP, Congress,Supreme Court, Cabinet etc etc etc
You don’t balance the budget; NO LIBERTY.
bump for later read
Since the area of DC is comprised entirely of land given by the state of Maryland for the purpose of creating a seat of government, granting statehood looks to be directly in violation of stated Constitutional language.
The Museums would stay in DC. The departments no longer need to be close to the capitol. Move DOE to texas, Move Agriculture to Denver or Kansas City, Move Education to Ohio, Commerce to California, etc.
The senators and congressmen should meet and conduct business in various conventions centers around the USA. Would this cost a lot ? Yes, but the savings in getting these people out of DC would be 1,000 times greater.
I think we should give them a separate country altogether.
And it would give the libs another two seats in the Senate and god knows how many Reps.
It will probably pass.
And we’ll get is some lecture about fairness and racism. :(
This, like all White House Petition ideas are asinine, useless and go nowhere except to gather info on those who start or sign them.
That being said, “if” DC became a state it would end up like Detroit in the first year of existence.
This is typical liberalism. Take something that is failing badly and rotting from within due to their policies, gerrymander it to suit their needs, then change the name and appearance of it.
Like the Drive-By-Media, they then wipe their hands, smile broadly and move on to the next thing to destroy, and gain two senators in perpetuity.
There was a specific reason Washington DC was not given representation, but they are too stupid and ignorant to understand.
Liberals are ideological locusts.
B.S. idea. If D.C. ever stops being the Capital, it should revert to being part of Maryland. It most certainly does not merit 2 senators. Additionally, once the whorish industry of free money roles out of town, so too will 90% of the population.
Perhaps it should be stipulated that the people who work in D.C. must live in D.C.
Louisville? I don’t want those SOBs here. Move them to Moscow or China where they fit in better.
Give DC to Maryland — from whence it came. As posters have already indicated, we don’t want two permanent permanent ultra-liberal, Communist-loving, America-hating Leftists.
If you move the capital, there would be no reason for DC to exist, let alone merit statehood.
Louisville is a lovely city with very nice people. Why destroy it?
I suggest that Detroit be the next DC. After all, it woul benefit greatly from being given “something” to do and our government could use all those guns they have ordered to stay safe.
Louisville is nice, but we need a capital closer to the center of the nation, far away from lobbyists and east and left coast liberals and odious for the national media. How about western Nebraska?
