You must've never had Southern sweet tea then. I can see where Richmonder is coming from with that, quite honestly.

I kinda have to disagree with you on the sweet tea being everywhere thing. Many parts of the Northeast neglect their sweet tea wanting clientele.

I disagree with that statement.

But if you think so dont you want to keep it that way? If you do then dont punish your city (or the state of Virginia) by putting the capital and all that corruption in our beautiful state. The nation's capital already has a negative impact on our beautiful state of Virginia.

Who can stop it? My post being a bit ironic.

They have already taken NOVA. And they are starting to encroach upon Richmond. In 20 years time, the DC Metro Area will include Raleigh!

Default Never Again !!

Remember your history - Richmond was the capital of the Confederacy !!!!

For this reason alone, it should never be considered as a future capital for the United States.

Its nice and you can walk to most of the restaurants and stores and people here are friendlier than dc. Also we serve sweet tea in most all the restaurants, so people from further south would feel at home here.

Why would you just move the capital a few miles south? That makes no sense at all; just leave it where it is.

If the capitol was to ever be moved, I think Philly or Boston should be it.
