It is true the Popular Democratic party has mis managed the goverment of Puerto Rico. Where is all the money? Puerto Rico is a wonderful place. The Portirican people have paid there dues with the blood of their sons in every war since WW II. It's time Puerto Rico becomes a state. But let it be known with out a doubt. Even after statehood the puerto Rican culture will not fade. Note that there are people who call themselves Puertorican all over the world. The grand majority of those people have never visited the island. That is how strong our culture is.

Caguas, Puerto Rico

And I don't think "Puerto Ricans are on the bottom rug of American society", blacks have been treated like hell ever since they were brought here.It is unfair to treat every person the same due to race or ethnicity.I treat people according to character.If the person is a piece of garbage, I won't like them. Regardless if they are Ricans or not.Do you agree?
I agree on 2nd and 3rd postings. I don't agree on statehood because a very high percentage of people on the Island, especially the elderly may lose their properties and/or landholdings, not if, but when realestate tax comes into play.
