Puerto Rico votes on US ties and chooses governor

Nov 6, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Republic

Citizens in the U.S. island territory cannot vote in the U.S. presidential election, but many were excited to participate in a referendum that could push the territory toward statehood, greater autonomy or independence.

Leave Puerto Rico the way it is. Puerto Rico is for the Puerto Ricans . This is our Island and most of us return to the Island to stay and to visit family. We need strong leadership. That's what Puerto Rico is missing!!! We need a governor to help Puerto Ricans. Do not let any Governor through us into a pit. Puerto Rico will end up like Haiti. Puerto Rican better Wake up!!! Viva Puerto Rico.

By your posted message you seem to desperately need "US funds" (or you would end up like Haiti).

Are Puerto Ricans, US citizens? Or full blown Puerto Ricans?

Can you explain -your "Puerto Rico for Puerto Ricans" message?

You had strong leadership: his name was Luis Fortuno.

Garcia Padilla will return Puerto Rico to the days of Sila and Anibal: out of control spending, no accountability, and no vision for the future except the same old policies of the past.

A poorer, more in debt Puerto Rico, makes it less appealing to become a state.

They should let us Americans vote to decide if we want Puerto Rico. Our will is to cut them loose. We don't need any more dead weight. We are already supporting all these Mexicans.

Why are you supporting Mexicans and why did the US invade Puerto Rico?
