After visiting Washington DC I am more convinced than ever, no statehood


The District only exists to serve at the pleasure of the other 50 states. That is why it was created.

It would not exist except for the bloated bureaucracies housed throughout all of the halls of government. They have done nothing to deserve statehood other than act as the nation's clearinghouse all the while tacking on a processing fee.

In fact, I would propose an old idea be implemented and that is the decentralization of DC. I would have The Supremes, Congress, and parts of the Executive branch in Washington DC. Probably some military and spooks. The other 2.1 million federal jobs need to be relocated throughout the country.

On a side note, I walked by the Cannon House building. AOC comments are just too funny when you see the relationship between that building and the Capitol. I guess you can give a 20 something a pass but it would be like saying you were threatened by a protest at the Union while sitting in Folsom.
