How unique is the District of Columbia
Average rating: 3.67 of 5 with 9 votes.
A monumental capital with many national museums, the White House and the Capitol - this is how Washington is perceived by tourists. A metropolis where the elite work and the whole world meets - this is how people from abroad see it who live and work here. Many Americans see it as an airborne bubble that has nothing to do with the rest of the country.
From: Barbara Leidl
A swamp of lobbyists and politicians who indulge in luxury and are only interested in their own interests - that is the impression of many Americans. And what about the people of Washington? They are fed up with being reduced to just being the seat of government.
The Capitol Dome in Washington D.C.
Washington, the District of Columbia, is a historically unique entity in the USA: Created by the constitution as a stateless federal territory, controlled by Congress. What makes the people different from the rest of the country? You are not allowed to have a say and therefore call yourself the most un-American city in America.
