On Friday of this week, the House of Representatives voted almost totally Democrat that the 51st state would be Washington, DC, but not all of DC. The White House, the Capitol building, and other federal buildings would remain outside of the actual 51st state, which would be known as Washington-Douglas (after a renowned abolitionist). All of the Democrats save one voted for the bill. All Republicans voted against it.
The bill is pretty much dead on arrival at the Republican-controlled Senate. And Donald Trump has said he would absolutely veto any attempt at statehood for the DC area if it got through the Senate.
Let’s be honest here. The reason that Democrats are looking at DC to become the 51st state is to use it as an election issue, as well as make it a chance to get two extra senators, as well as another representative. It, like everything with the left, is all political. The only reason the House wants to make DC a state as opposed to say, Northern California, which would add two additional conservative senators and at least one more conservative House member.
Overall, the attempt that the Pelosi-led House tried is totally political at a point when we as a nation want to get back to business and attack the problems facing Americans. We need to face issues like dumping Obamacare and returning the individual healthcare to insurance companies that are experts in that industry. We need to look at fixing immigration so that we can have only the people we need coming into this country, not the illegal immigrants that have flooded our southern border.
It’s time once again, as I’ve said dozens of times here on this blog, that both parties, but especially the leftwing snowflake Democrats realize that now is not the time for uber-socialist policies. This is the time for you to compromise. The mere fact that Democrats in the US Senate couldn’t take getting 80% of the police reform bill, but would rather use the defeat of the bill as a campaign issue is very telling. This isn’t a political party that merely has a difference of opinion against their Republican rivals. This is a political party that wants to overthrow the current government and tear down our country and remake the country in the shape of socialist regimes like Cuba, Venezuela, and Guatemala that can’t even keep their own countries afloat.
Without a strong bi-partisan effort to make sure our country is on the right road, the Antifas and socialists of this country will indeed win. They will keep fighting until the right just gives up and goes home. And that’s the point of no return where America becomes a third-rate power. God help us if that ever happens!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
