DEMOCRATS ARE CRAZY DESPERATE FOR POWER
This past week, debate in the U.S. House of Representatives
If you find this puzzling, let me clear it up for you.
Article One, Section Eight, of the Constitution permits the establishment of a "District (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular states, and the acceptance of Congress, become the seat of the government of the United States".
residents (almost entirely government employees) elect a non-voting,
congressional delegate to the House of Representatives
If DC became a state, US taxpayers would be paying for running this new micro-state, about 1/20th the size of Rhode Island, and as a new state, it would get two new US Senators. The likelihood of that being Democratic Party Senators would be an almost certain lock; therein lies the motivation.
The U.S. Constitution stipulates the US Capitol be in its own separate District for good reasons: so that it is not coerced by being a part of any state, and so that government itself doesn’t have voting power equal to a state.
This 51st state ploy is simply Democrats wanting to control the Senate again. No clearer example of lust for power and disdain for the founding principles of our country can be made.
Maybe we should pass a law banning Federal employees from living outside the District of Columbia; in that way, most would resign. The Republicans ought to put a bill forward for that. I would argue we should have a law forcing Congress to work from their home states, and simply use the Capitol for ceremonial purposes and maybe keep the President there. Scotus should be moved to the Aleutian Islands
