The founding fathers did not want the federal government to be run by a state. It remains neutral to all state laws that way. Can you imagine the red tape if it was? The federal government and the state government would both be trying to get their way. It is in everyone's best interest for it to stay that way.


The following stores are all stores that I've dealt with or have become friends with through the forums and I highly recommend them all.
Comics Castle-AKA Pat McCauslin
Alpha Comics--ComicVortex--Comic Cellar--Hall of Heroes--Swifty's Olde Tyme Comic Shoppe

Because then we'd have 51 states. And that'd just be odd.

It's been talked about a few times. Aside from the neutrality issues that Pat mentioned, my understanding is that the states that donated the land used for our nation's capital would need to give their permission in order for DC to become a state. Washington DC was orginally built on land donated by Maryland and Virginia. I think (although I'm not sure) that Virginia eventually took some or all of theirs back. Either way the Maryland part of the donation still exists (or DC wouldn't).

What a tangled web.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/District_of_Columbia_retrocession

Looks like the most likely future outcome is most of DC going back to Maryland except a small part around the buildings that Congress would still control and fund and that's assuming Maryland ever wants it back and that it stands up to any consitutional challenges which giving the land back that VA donated to quell the fears of people wanting to keep their slaves while upgrading the port of Alexandria to be competetive have avoided so far but could still occur. Once RG3 wins the Superbowl a few times you might see Maryland pushing for reclomation but even if it happened, the Redskins would still be In Washington County and wouldn't have to change their name forcing millions of people to have to redecorate everything from their cars paint job to their sofas. Whew!

Because they don't deserve to be?
Seriously, because the US doesn't want a state named Cracksylvania.

No, unless they physically move, the Redskins would not be in Washington County. Washington County is in the the western part of the Maryland. And Maryland doesn't need to take back any part of DC to get the Redskins. The team is already in Maryland, Fed Ex field is located in Prince George's County Maryland, not the District of Columbia.

LJ is correct on the county. the team's stadium is in Landover Maryland. There is talk of them moving the games back into DC, serious talk actually. Apparently to the old RFK grounds. I'm all for that too. Redskins HQ is actually in Ashburn VA, and training camp is in Richmond VA starting next year. Maryland can have the Ravens, we'll take the Skins lol

No, No, No. I'd rather see Maryland keep the Skins and let Va (or anybody else) have the Ravens.Batting Eyelashes

RFK is the only Redskin stadium. If I refuse to accept any substitute then they never moved and I get to know they're in Washington wether it's County, DC or State.

Besides, we all know Marylands team is the Baltimore Colts. Applause
