Midwestern cities need jobs. DC is too crowded. A simple solution. 3 minute video.

WHY would we INVITE D.C. CANCER to The Heartland?
I vote, ‘NO!’
Right in the middle of Kansas. I also really think Georgia should move the capital out of Atlanta.
Move it back to Milledgeville.
Doesn’t Denver, Colorado, or Boulder, Colorado, can’t remember which, have the “shadow government” poised to relocate there at any given threat?
Hell no why let them infest a conservative area, and to take over places like Iowa.
The problems of DC would exist wherever the nation’s capital is located. They aren’t problems because of the physical location, they are problems because of the function of the place.
I do think that federal agencies should be moved out to various places. If each agency were in a different part of the country, some of the toxic DC culture might be neutralized.
My personal favorite would be an island in the Mississippi, somewhere near the borders of three states like Iowa, Illinois and Missouri. The advantage of the island would be to really restrict the growth.
Milledgeville would be a good centralized location.
The only thing they didn't mention was the punishment building located in Barrow, Alaska.
A better spot would be right in the middle of Alaska.
Cold, isolated and unpleasant
It's just west of Denver in the suburb of Lakewood.
Sounds good in theory, but they would loot the rest of the country to erect a giant bubble over it. We would pay for the bubble AND the heat.
ABSOLUTELY. In fact, in an earlier life, I actually worked for the US government in one of the (many) agencies that we hate. Guess what - the people there were great, they did their job, they lived conservative lifestyles (even more conservative than me), and they NEVER had any political agenda.
Those are the people we NEED in government...not a bunch of Deep State types who think that the world revolves around them and if we don’t bow, it’s only because we’re TOO STUPID to know better.
Even better, move most of them to the mid-east.
Especially the State Dept. - ship them to Baghdad.
No and hell no. It’s bad enough we have these criminal bastards in charge, but at least we have them congregated in a single enclave. I’d prefer to keep it that way rather than spread the rot all over.
I often said, move it to Lincoln Nebraska, the near middle of the country now, and design it more efficiently.
Keep historic D.C. For the tourons
A blue state is best. Make it bluer. Va. turns red. American Samoa does not have enough housing for lobbyists.
With the advances in communications this should be a no-brainer. Move DOTransportation to Detroit. Agriculture to Kansas City. Energy to Dallas. That would be good for starters. However, it is not the Executive branch that won’t consider it, it has been the Congress that opposes decentralization because it wants everything under its thumb.
