I can’t believe this didn’t happend during the Cold War, and with the other nuke threads on this forum, I’m wondering why we don’t do it now:
Why not relocate the various branches of government so that we are less vulnerable to nuclear or other WMD attack?
Why not put a new White House in Kansas City or Salt Lake City??
Why not put the Supreme Court in St. Louis, or Dallas?
I figure it’s harder to move Congress, so we can leave them in DC.
For that matter, what about the Pentagon? Maybe that should move it to Omaha or Denver, or Memphis or Des Moine or some such place.
Is it better to have the three branches in one place so that no regionalism develops in the federal government?
It just worries me that all of our eggs are in one basket, from the three branches of government to the Pentagon to everything else in the DC area.
