The heartland is the demographic center of our nation and would be the easiest to protect.
Ummmm I don't think Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols got the message.
For political reasons, I would also like to have our Congressional delegation closer so they may better serve their constituency. Presently, the bastion of liberalism is the sole region receiving this exclusive treatment.
Now THAT is a great point I never even considered! Kudos to you!

Thank you. I bet few people wonder why their "conservative" members of our federal government seem to become "liberal" after spending time in Washington, D. C. They are stuck there in that political environment. They become like the area that surrounds them.
Here's another thought. The Constitution does not forbid moving the capital. Give the land back to the states, but retain the building and open them fully to the public under the management of the Parks Department. People exploring our rich history would strengthen our nation and rival all the theme parks in attendance.
And if these reasons alone were not enough, relocating our nations capital would spur such economic activity with people building homes, companies relocating offices, and foreign governments building new embassies in this new city that every segment of our economy would enjoy great benefit.
