Sorry, Dems — but DC was created purposely so it would NOT be a state

First, because they were concerned about the seat of federal power being controlled by a hostile or intrusive state government. Second, because they knew that if the capital were in a state — much less its own state — the people would vote to grow and accumulate federal power. Both situations were incompatible with the proper separation of powers and state rights.

Today, though, Democrats want to localize one of the only things in the Constitution that is actually federalized — while federalizing everything else.

The Democrats clearly want to admit Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia to shift the balance of power.

Between that and the unrestricted “illegal immigration”, the Democrats want to be in power for ever and ever.

Argh!

A New Push to Become the 51st State in an Ailing Puerto Rico
By RICHARD FAUSSET

SAN JUAN, P.R. — It is a proudly Spanish-speaking territory at a time when the White House has taken down the Spanish version of its website. It is as materially poor as it is culturally rich. And Puerto Rico has entered a new and exotic version of bankruptcy, facing a staggering $123 billion in debt and pension obligations.

In short, it is difficult to imagine a worse time for governing-party officials in this struggling Caribbean commonwealth to persuade Washington it is ready to become the 51st American state.

It’s funny when other groups are seeking the exit, this “state” wants to join. 

Could it be for the perceived largess?

In that case, why would “We, The Sheeple” want them in the “club”.

And, if they had any “national aspirations”, then why would they take them into “the Le Brea Tar Pits” of this “union”, or any union.

“I sent the club a wire stating, PLEASE ACCEPT MY RESIGNATION. I DON’T WANT TO BELONG TO ANY CLUB THAT WILL ACCEPT ME AS A MEMBER.” — Groucho Marx

If anything, spin them off into their own country with our apologies for bothering them all these years.
