1st / only state not to have an airport...among a lot of other things?!

Most 'citizens' live, pay taxes in, and vote in another state....

This is a blatant socialist power grab.

Where did our founders ever say you must have an airport to be a state? You must be listening to Trump.

Most residents of DC were born there. They actually have hospitals and stuff.

In what universe is allowing citizens to vote for their representative “Socialism”


Not true.

Most residents of Washington DC were born elsewhere.

Yep, PR will be next. These moves along with changing voting laws will assure democratic rule. Sadly, the majority of Democrats are already too brainwashed to see the danger.

The danger of what? Letting people vote and giving Americans representation?

Wow. That's really fucking dangerous.

Here's the thing, dummy. If your whole political philosophy is contingent on keeping "Those people" from voting (and that's REALLY what we are talking about here) then that kind of flies in the face of everything you think this country stands for.
If your concern is letting people vote, then pass legislation allowing them to register in either Virginia or Maryland for purpose of voting.

The District of Columbia is supposed to be Neutral Ground, free from the influence of any State.

If you choose to live in DC then you choose to abide by the political parameters for that were established for the District.

If you make DC a State then it's probably a good idea for Illinois and Indiana to jointly cede a 10-square-mile patch of land and to move the Capitol there.

I plan to write my Congressman to tell him that if he votes for H.R. 51 then I will vote against him in 2022, and to encourage others to do so as well.

I plan to write both my Senators to tell them that if they vote for H.R. 5.1. then I will do the same with them.

Again, just because something seemed like a good idea in 1790 doesn't make it a good idea now.

The fact is, DC isn't "Neutral Ground". People live there, and they have unique concerns.

So go get that amendment!

Believing Congress can simply vote DC into statehood, Madwoman Pelosi insists the House remains outside constitutional restraints. Any such vote will be a vain exercise, without validity.

The House of Representatives will vote Tuesday on whether to make Washington, D.C., a State.

Full House Will Vote to Make Washington D.C. a State Tuesday
Sure they pass that and we kick DC, and Cali out of the country to be independent states and select a whole new Gov't where IQ and Psych exams are required. Pelosi needs to just hold her press conference at a tapioca pudding factory and get her old age over with already.

Show some ACTUAL fraud
Not conspiracy theories.

Each of those states went over the results again and again and again and found NOTHING

Trump sued and had no actual evidence to present in court

The Constitution decides, and DC cannot become a State.
That's both true and false

"DC" as in the buildings that make up the seat of government can not become a state....but the area that makes up that grouping of building is only mandated as not LARGER than 10 sq miles. The original 10 sq miles has already been reduced and can be again.

The newly "excised" area CAN become a state. One that would have a population larger than Wyoming
