DC Statehood!

Taxation without Representation!
You may recall this protest propelled by the colonists against the British rule before our country was born. The colonists were tired of being treated as second-class citizens. They stood up and fought for Democracy and autonomy. DC residents are doing just this some 225+ years later!

The folks living in the District of Columbia do not have representation in Congress and Congress controls DC's local budget and laws!! Isn't it time we lift up the torch for Statehood again... we can win it this time with your support.

* Please goto to sign a petition in support of DC Statehood.

The petition will demonstrate to City and Congressional leadership that we want full voting rights, 1 House Representative and 2 Senators, and complete budget autonomy from the hands of Congress.

It's time we stand up for our rights as citizens of this nation. We can no longer stand the paradox of trying to create democracies around the world, mostly by violent force, when we don't have it right here in the Nation's capital.
