I vote for Atlanta, Georgia....birthplace of the late, great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Atlanta, in my opinion is the personification of all freedoms and liberties that the U.S. Constitution had intended for all Americans, but Black American did not receive. Today, as a result of the events which occured in Atlanta, as led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., not only can Black Americans, but All Americans fully enjoy and participate in the freedoms and liberties, that were intended for all but denied to so many.

I don't like any of the options, all of which are large cities and do not need more congestion or employment. Locating in the South misrepresents everyone else.

I suggest Indianapolis, which already has a large number of government jobs, is centrally located, and needs a better reason for its existence other than having a lot of roads meet there.

How about Nuevo Laredo, also known as Narco Laredo, that way the federal government can experience the wonders of its glorious border policies first hand.
