What a loaded question. Not answering this poll.

The Capitol is right where it needs to be.

OMG. Oh.My.God. Although not a good movie, watch a film called Escape From L.A., the sequel to Escape From NY, and tell me that the president from that movie is not Donald Trump. The similarities are uncanny, and now here we are listening to some Trump supporter suggest moving the capital city, JUST LIKE IN THAT FILM. Everyday this movie becomes more real, this and Idiocracy.

The answer is simple

NO



The entire "drain the swamp" meme implies exactly that.
Sorry but the majority rules and right now the Democrat majority is voting to telecommute from Sweden.

Did everyone here just cut school that day in third grade when we learned the difference between "Capitol" and "Capital"? C'mon, people.

Capitol is a building. Does the OP want to move a building or a place that's the center of government?

Yeah, a place like that would work too. You just need to ban educated, informed people from serving in govt. positions, and the "Duck Dynasty" and "Honey Boo Boo" crowd can have their national capital of Idiocracy.

Boise & Phoenix aren't but who said it has to be a city and why not telecommute. DC is a mess and hates Republicans....we should not have to go there to rule like we were elected to do.

I'll take Honey Boo Boo over Loretta Lynch in an intelligence test to the death contest.

Based on your bizarre posts, I don't doubt you would.

Lynch is only a honors graduate of Harvard Law and Harvard undergrad. No match for Honey Boo Boo...
