I vote for building a new capitol - very futuristic. DC is old, has too much crime and serves as a bad example to the rest of the world that all hates us. We need to renew ourselves. Make it more centrally located.

The rest of the world doesn't hate us. They hate our government, and with good reason. Moving it somewhere else isn't going to help.

It's what we call an example which i used. you can look it up on wikipedia if you'd like

[/quote]How isn't Brasilla a "true" city? It has over 2 million people living there and is the only city founded in the 20th Century that is listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Besides, who are these "Brazilians" that say their capitol city lacks any real neighborhoods?[/quote]

The people who say this are people all over. I mean you only have to look at photos to see what they mean. sorry but this is pointless and you have no reason to hate DC. Next

Pittsburgh is old. Lets build "New Pittsburgh", and put it someplace else
I mean, it is part of the US and the world hates it. Yea! good idea. plus, it has crime and doesn't serve as a good example to some people to represent Pennsylvania. Lets Put New Pittsburgh in Kansas and make it 100x uglyer! Yay!

Why do we need a new capitol building? And I like old cities. They have charm and character that lots of newer cities don't.

That's a good joke , you have a good sense of horror humor don't you..LOL...if Washinton D.C. should be moved..AKA..The National Capitol , it should Be Moved Under-Ground directly below the current city of Washington D.C...just start all over from scratch with ours National Capitol....Smile.

Richmond as the national capital!!! Aint gonna happen to many government agencies have new offices in d.c., plus if you ask me the nation's secondary capital is Arlington!!! It's something sneeky about Arlington that I can't point out. lol Is it the Pentagon, is it because it's boundaires look to much like D.C.'s boundaries (as in it looks as if it completes the West Portions of D.C.), I cant point it out!!!

Can you see what I mean, Arlington makes D.C. a full diamond shape!!!

Back on topic-Just by having stores, restaurants, and etc isn't going to make it move to Richmond, think about security, proximity, and etc!!!

Everything for the President is in Maryland from his Plane (Airforce one) to his secondary white house (it's not the white house but it's the official secondary house)

Camp David

The security bunkers for the president are in PA, but I believe that they stretch to Maryland. It just will never work it would cost over $10 billion to create Richmond as the national capital, for that matter any city!!!!

Arlington was part of DC, VA asked for its land back. DC was originally a perfect diamond shape.

I know but, don't you think that it wouldn't be a perfect diamond any more because Arlington was existent yet, so they wouldn't have restored it to it's original city limits!!! So why did they put it into a Diamond, I believe it's the nations 2ndary capitol!!! Addition to that is a lot of government agencies are based there!!!!!

It's the immediate suburbs of DC. I guess it's the natural place to put the cemetary and the Pentagon. Just like Camp David is nearby in Maryland. Washington isn't all that big. That doesn't mean it needs to be relocated or rebuilt. We don't have enough old cities as it is. Why do I keep responding to this thread?
