From a militarily strategic standpoint, should the nation's capital be moved further inland, nearer to the Colorado/Wyoming border?

Washington DC is currently vulnerable to a submarine attack or air attack from carriers in the Atlantic Ocean. Ground troops could easily invade after a conventional first strike, let alone a nuclear strike, with tanks, artillery, and ground troops. Further inland, the Capital would be protected from an invasion by 1800 miles of terrain and the Mississippi River on the east, and the Rocky Mountains on the west.

Besides...anyone who is anyone would be whisked away and tucked safely in.

We don't want all those corrupt politicians and their endless lines of toadies in Colorado.

To a place surrounded by high mountains that makes a natural fortress

Move it to Finland.

@ZonkeyBalls Move it to Finland.

If we move all our politicians to Finland, you have to agree to keep them.... and continue to support them in the opulent lifestyle they have grown to expect.

I'll personally make sure, that there are plenty of hookers to choose from. And if they want to have a blast, we have a perfect test zone for the next generation nukes. It's called Ahvenanmaa in Finnish, but really, it's just as much a part of Finland than the appendix is a productive part of your bowls.

Ever notice that in DC, everything seems to be "free"? All the costs for the numerous museums, and the zoo are paid for by Federal tax dollars. That mean that a taxpayer from Colorado is paying for museums and a zoo they most likely will never have the chance to visit. Now lets look at the cost to go to the zoo and museums in Denver. The zoo, is $20 a ticket. Museums are about $15 a ticket for each museum. Why is that?? DC has a culture of everyone else picking up the tab.

Your concern - "Ground troops could easily invade "

Nuh-uh! The District of Columbia law prohibits the possession of handguns, even in private citizens' own homes, unless they were registered before 1976. So, an invasion is not possible! hehe smiliejolly smiliethink smiliemaniac smiliepunk smilie

And if YOU think that there aren't enemy infiltrators, spies, sympathizers, and computer hackers who could not disable those safeguards, then you are decidedly naive, and quite likely a stolen valor Ranger.

No Need. Just set up lots of intercepting rockets - blow any threat out of the sky before it reaches dc.
