Cool license plate

I'd never seen this D.C. license plate motto before, but I thought it was pretty neat.

You gotta admit, they have a point. But then again, taxation with representation ain't so great either.


It really does suck, doesn't it?

I can't believe the traffic authority would print those. Good for them.

The Capital of the United States CAN'T be made a State.

That's in the Constitution and that's one of the things that SHOULDN'T be changed...they got that right, as well as most of the rest of it.

There IS however, a way to give the people residing there the representation their taxes warrant and that is by assiging the residential areas of D.C. to either Maryland or Virginia, giving one or both those states an extra Congressional district or two.

There are many examples of taxation without representation throughout this country. Anyone who works for the City of NY, for instance, and lives on Long Island, or any of the allowed counties Upstate (Westchester, Rockland, Orange and Putnam, I think) all pay full city income taxes (not the "commuter tax," but full city taxes) as do their spouses, even if that spouse doesn't work in NYC. ANYONE who pays city or state income taxes and can't vote in that Municipality is also suffering taxation without representation.
