    So there will be a East Washington state and a West Washington state?

    Born and raised in Maryland. My neighbors deserve representation. The founders could not have guessed that this plot of land would become so filled with people; permanent residents, who are long overdue to have an equal voice in government. And beyond that, autonomy in how the city is run.

    I’m quite fond of the arrangement of stars that puts them in a circle, kinda like the original flag, but with stars in the middle too.
    Both would be valid arrangements, since the law that governs the design of the flag only says that the stars must be white on the blue canton in the corner, have five points, and be equal in number to the number of states. There is nothing saying what arrangement the stars must be in.

    How about this:
    1. American territories with at least 0,5 million people gets to be a state.
    2. People in the remaining territories gain full citizenship at birth and voting rights according to the geografically closest state (ex Hawaii for American Samoa).

    Making D.C. a state is nothing more than a Democrat power grab. It would give the democrats a majority in the Senate for the rest of eternity.

    I thought she was just showing what the real American flag looks like. Not those mutilated trump flags. Lol

    Why would DC become a state? That’s an insane proposition given the District of Alexandria was returned to the state of Virginia on it’s dissolution. We should return the District of Columbia to the state of Maryland to end this grievance once and for all.

    She is charming and sharp. I’m really hoping for DC and Puerto Rico to become states at last! It’s unconstitutional to have Americans living without representation.
