Summary



Part VIII: "Statehood for the District of Columbia"

 

 

 

 

  • People who live in the land comprising the District of Columbia unquestionably deserve full representation in Congress.

  • The District of Columbia was never envisioned to become a State and should not become a State.

  • Making this a "black" or racist issue willfully ignores the complex issues involved and unfortunately assures open hostility to demands for representation either through Statehood or other means.

  • The issue to Statehood proponents is power, not voting rights or "taxation without representation".

  • Retrocession to Maryland satisfies voting and representation issues, without tilting power to a political party or changing the current political balance.

  • Entrenched DC politicians and those people and businesses directly benefiting from the current power structure can be expected to oppose Statehood and retrocession.

Michael A. Wallace is a registered Republican, a former Eagle Scout, a Lifetime Member of the National Rifle Association, a strong believer in Second Amendment rights, a retired Marine officer, and a pro-life advocate - all things liberals seem to dislike.  In addition to his affiliation with America's Voices, Mike is a founding member of ConservaVets, a conservative veteran's organization (which has since become Rally4America).  Mike uses thorough constitutional and historical research to analyze and explain key moral and political issues of the day.  He particularly enjoys debunking the myths and lies perpetrated by the many liberal groups who claim to speak for most Americans and by those who misrepresent Constitutional principles to further their own agendas.  E-mail Mike at mwallace@americasvoices.org.
