Slavery is gone.

The third point has been hashed over often enough that it's not worth addressing here.

The District can not have a representation without an amendment to the Constitution. I started making a list of all the unConstitutional thing that have been going on in Washington, and am now being treated for severe writers-cramp.

Negative, Ghostrider! If you're lucky, we'll let Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming join us here in our new nation south of the Mason Dixon line and East 'o the Mighty Mississippi.

Sorry, southern Illinois, you're out. Ditto MD and western PA. You'd have to do some serious realigning of state borders for us to let you in. Hard choice, but AZ's out, too. UT might make it.
Maybe we could create a corridor from TX through the midwest to link up with Idaho. It would cause CA and MA fits to be split up like that, but that's the breaks. VT and NH would be independent states, I think.
