Here it is in black and white.
Washington, D.C. petitioned for and received “statehood” recognized by the UNPO (Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization).
Why would they need to go to a separate organization to receive recognition as a state, rather than walking down the hall and passing some legislation? We think we know why.
The problem is, it has never been a state of the union – and with Congress passing federal legislation all this time as though it were a state, they have been operating in what amounts to fraud upon the people for over 200 years. To come back and declare themselves a “state” of the United States of America, Incorporated, would bring up some very interesting questions.
Why not just admit the truth, make the necessary corrections, and move on with life? Because the prison sentences for fraud are typically kind of long … ? And there’s no statute of limitations on fraud? And they know they’ve pissed off the American people to the point that they understand we will tolerate no more lies and therefore the intensity of our reaction can’t be easily predicted?
