Stop unconstitutional statehood for Washington, D.C. Here's why:

Washington, D.C. as an independent city not owned by any state "is not some accident or technicality. It was by design and an intention of the founders to have a capital which was beholden only to Congress but could not influence it. The first mention of the District occurs in Federalist No. 43, one of the few penned by James Madison. Madison writes,

“ Without (the District), not only the public authority might be insulted and its proceedings interrupted with impunity; but a dependence of the members of the general government on the State comprehending the seat of the government, for protection in the exercise of their duty, might bring on the national councils an imputation of awe or influence, equally dishonorable to the government and dissatisfactory to the other members of the Confederacy.” https://bpr.berkeley.edu/2020/07/10/against-d-c-statehood/
