    Do you support the plight of the oppressed citizens of Washington, D.C. - who are being taxed without representation in Congress?

    Is District of Columbia a state?

    How about Puerto Rico, Guam, USVI, American Samoa?

    Or does your heart only bleed for the biggest money pit city in America?

    If they are stupid enough to live in Washington, DC, they are too stupid to vote.

    There are no teabaggers.

    Now if you're asking Tea Party members the question.....who cares really. They can always move.

    DC is not a state - more of a federal district - on land given by VA and MD to create a national capital as I recall.

    Puerto Rico, USVI, Guam, American Samoa are all Territories and I think they do have voting rights and option to request statehood - as did Hawaii.

    Don't know about the others, but in Guam all the taxes they pay stay in Guam.

    So then I take it YOU ARE IN FAVOR OF TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION ? A couple hundred years ago they would have strung you up for that.
