The passage through the House of a bill to make Washington DC a state made me wonder if they had forgotten the 23rd amendment. This would have to be repealed to proceed, since it would not be necessary if the “Seat of Government” has full representation in the Congress. Then it occurred to me that the solution was simple: Move the seat of government somewhere else!
The people of Puerto Rico have citizenship but have no vote in federal elections. If the same rule of electors were applied to Puerto Rico as currently applies to DC, they would be a swing vote in presidential elections. All that is required is to build a palatial residence for the President and an ornate Capital. Then the goal of the Democrats will finally be achieved. We will become a banana republic!
