i say just make the land around the major federal buildings (the mall, white house, supreme court etc) "DC" and hang the rest of it back to Maryland or Virginia.

That way repubs aren't worried about MOAR DEMOCRAT VOTES and the residents actually get representation.

admit it as a state but only if they change the proposed name of the state. The State of Washington, D.C. is kinda bad imo

my only concern with this is that I think d.c. law is a lot more liberal in some areas (like employment discrimination) than MD or VA. But then again maybe the influx of d.c. voters would pull those states to the left

I know it's probably more liberal than VA, but not sure it is more so than MD.

I'd actually be cool with conglomerating the states into like 10 or 12 big states with roughly equal populations.

I doubt other people would be though, since conglomeration means giving up substantial local control, which is a big issue even if the states are highly culturally similar. As just one quick example, Oregon and Washington have extremely different tax structures and rationalizing them would be a major sticking point, because you've got a powerful constituency for retaining one of the most regressively FYGM tax-structures in the nation vs. people who are used to not paying any sales tax whatsoever and vote it down every time it's proposed - and that's to say nothing of what the people in northern CA or Idaho/Montana would think of having policies set by populations living in Portland and Seattle.

Is there anything else I'm missing?

PS: Fun fact: "Alt-right" is not a political party, so that is *not* protected.
