    If the citizens of Washington DC wish to become a state let them, I think it would be more practical for Washington DC to become part of Maryland. As for constitution just have the federal buildings and mall be the national capital. What would the name be there is already a State of Washington.

    Washington DC needs statehood so that its residents may have representation and also to hinder the militarization of police forces there.

    I want statehood for DC. BUT make sure that no one who is in DC representing a state can switch their residency to DC until they NO LONGER REPRESENT THAT OR ANY OTHER STATE.

    I have wondered for a long time, why aren't the people that in the District of Columbia should not be granted statehood. Why not?

    I feel that statehood for Washington, D.C. is just another way for Democrats to grab more seats in Congress. Washington, D.C. should stay the way it is.

    As of this year, the population of the district of Columbia is already larger than Wyoming’s population. It is unconscionable that we have a population of people who have no representation when, there are fewer people in Wyoming who have three votes of representation. Give DC statehood.

    maybe that would cut down on White House influence on the citizenry . Promote true representation in national politics

    I beleive DC has the right to Statehood. The people living there have had their say in many situations.

    I do support statehood for DC and for Puerto Rico also. The more the merrier. Seriously, diversity makes us so much stronger.

    This would be just another liberal state to corrupt the balance of power in the U.S. Senate

    II think the government should be incorporated into some kind of District of Governance . The surrounds could be partitioned into Virginia and Maryland. I realize that is not a simple solution based on what it would require to do the redistricting, but it seems the most logical one. The government therefore would have it's own jurisdiction without encroaching on the taxpayers who live in that huge metropolitan area, and they would have representation! Those who would continue to have their homes in that District of Governance would just have to deal with it and appreciate living in the seat of government.

    Residents of DC contribute to the national benefit and are impacted by national policy just as everyone. As a community, they contribute more than many states since they have more people. Our Republic was founded on a number of key ideas, including no taxation without representation. This fits DC. Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution was written before the nation's capital was a large and thriving community. I can't imagine that the Founding Fathers would take the same position today if they saw the economic and social diversity of so many US citizens in the DC community.

    700,000 American citizens - the majority of African heritage - are still deprived of many of the basic rights ‘enjoyed’ in 50 states. It is well past time to ‘invite’ these Americans into their full participation in American democracy - make Washington D.C. the 51st state!
