A Senate panel is taking a look at the possibility of turning Washington, DC into the 51st state. Over 630,000 people currently reside in the federal district, but have no representation in Congress. Residents have long fought for the right to have a say in the government that taxes them, but politics is a perpetual roadblock in their quest. DC Shadow Senator Paul Strauss joins RT’s Ameera David to discuss the fight and its implications.

We have been following the story of Super Patriot activist Adam Kokesh for a while now and  most of you know of his latest arrest.  Here’s a little background with Adam’s involvement with the DC park police and why there were probably  a lot of high-five’s in the DC Park Police locker room that night.

I thought I’d do a little presentation to put on the front burner a review of Adam Kokesh and his public disobedience record, a man who not only talks the talk but also walks the walk.

Help Adam with his legal fees if possible. . . EDITOR

Taxation without representation angers DC residents (Video Report)

from youtube

Posted by RTAmerica

Published on Oct 19, 2012

Washington DC is considered to be the symbol of American power and freedom. However as the saying goes – the District has a long history of taxation without representation. DC residents have no members representing them in either the House or the Senate and yet they pay their taxes like everyone else and in many cases much higher taxes. RT’s Liz Wahl looks at how this works and how the people feel about it
