How does that make me a fascist when you are the one who doesn't want your fellow citizens to have equal representation?You only care about “stacking “ the Senate as you’re a fascist swineThe District of Columbia would still need to exist however the size and location are not coded into the 23rd amendment. My understanding is that it's just required that DC have the same number of electoral votes as the smallest state. So, you simply just for lack of a better saying redistrict the district. So that DC only takes up the federal buildings and the mall. The rest of DC would make up the new state. Then we would have the new state with a full set of representatives, senators and electoral college votes (probably still 3, maybe 4). DC and what's left of it would still retain it's 3 electoral college votes and at this time pretty much the only citizens of DC would be the president and his/her family and maybe some staff. It's at this point that it might be pretty easy to amend the Constitution to strip the electoral college votes from the smaller District of Columbia.Really? I thought you did.You don't need an amendment to make a portion of D.C. a state.Nah... It needs an amendment. It won't get it.I am reading what you saidAgain, you didn't read what I wrote...feel free to do some fucking research...Yea now show me virginia's numbersDC wants statehood if you believe the polls:You said a people who don't want statehood should have itYou didn't seem to read what I wrote. Maybe do some fucking research.It's not crazyDoubutful.The Democrats will give Puerto Rico statehood and have permanent control of the government forever.
"Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely"
They have gotten away with their Russian Collusion scandal, their baseless impeachment scandal, and probably with their Mass Voter Fraud scandal and their Censorship scandal.
Expect more of the same.
One Party countries always devolve into dystopian misery.....aka Biden's "dark winter"
Puerto Rico votes in favor of statehood. But what does it mean for the island? - ABC News (go.com)
But certainly DC and PR (and the other outlying areas) should have statehood....
A person can become an American citizen in one of two ways: by birth or by naturalization. A person may be born a U.S. citizen by either jus soli, i.e., through place of birth, or jus sanguinis, i.e. through descent from his/her parents. With very few exceptions, most of which have to do with...nl.usembassy.gov
Its crazy that we have citizens who are not considered citizens of a state.
Take the outlying areas and have them become parts of the current 50 states. Take the 3 electors from DC and get rid of them. DC residents become residents of Maryland (or VA--whichever). Its silly to have an even number of electors as well.
DC is inside virginia....You can't have a state within a state without the bigger states approval.
Puerto Ricans have never voted in a binary vote for statehood. It is not clear a majority of people on the island support statehood......Merely respecting the democratic process. If Yes would win in a binary vote on statehood republicans could not prevent them. THey'd have to allow them in, as it stands ricans don't vote for statehood and that's why they're not a state
Maybe do some fucking research my god....
What is with all these retards on the left thinking PR want to become a state....? Wishful thinking not backed up by PR voters. I hear this all the time triggers me each time. THe anti racist party not listening to the Brown Ricans when they say they don't want to be a state. lol
I did you ignorant ****
Shut up retards, you have no idea what you're talking about.
Just because a talking head told you Ricans want statehood doesn't make it true. Been plenty of votes on the issue. Ricans clearly do not want statehood

There are two relevant voting populaces
Virginia and DC
You can't make a state within a state without the larger states approval. I told you that.
Now maybe Virginia supports DC statehood, IDK. But that's the relevant question here. I have no doubt people living in DC want statehood.
You didn't include relevant information..../
DC needs virginia's approval, they have a democratic process as well. lol
Democrats if/when it's possible should take this route. Fix the issue with lack of representation for the citizens of DC and then solve the constitutional issues that will be crated afterward.
