>>>While on the subject of compelling arguments, lets consider the case of the disenfranchised citizens of Washington, DC. They pay 100% federal income taxes, but have no Senate or voting House of Representatives delegates. This is clearly taxation without representation. >>>
Talk to the democrats. They have kept the people in D.C. on the “reservation” so they could point to them as poor people who NEED government handouts. Yet, when a Republican is president, they can blame that party for all the “poor” people within D.C.

I believe Washington DC was intended to be a political reservation of sorts.
On July 16, 1790, the Residence Act approved the creation of a capital district located along the Potomac River on the country's East Coast. As permitted by the U.S. Constitution, the District is under the exclusive jurisdiction of the United States Congress and is therefore not a part of any U.S. state.
