Does the average Puerto Rican that moves to NY or FL not understand the whole Democrat vs Republican? That's the only explanation I can come up with as to why they have such a high voter turnout % on the island but one of the lowest in the states.

But even then they must have noticed the PPD's affiliation with the national Democrats, and then Fortuno with the Republicans.

And their voter turnout is also significantly lower than the island average. It may be higher than NY but it's still alot lower than on the island itself.
Im incredibly confused as to why.

Oh I see what you mean, yout saying it's similar to the Blacks and the "plantation" mentality?

Not based on facts.
Many Puerto Ricans who hail fom NY have moved to Central Florida, as well as spread out across the Tri-state area.
You are caught in a time warp.
CF has been a COMING TOGETHER of both island and stateside Ricans.
The demographics are really unique.
But, you can keep Kissimmee.

Each individual is responsible for themself.
I can honestly say that speaking from personal experience.
It all starts in the home.
Or better yet. Go ask Sonia Sotomayor. Write her a letter with you observations. I bet she would do her best to answer you.

Island Puerto Ricans are teaching US Puerto Ricans NOTHING.
Don't patronize me.
I concern myself with my own, Jorge.
I have 4 mouths to feed. A mortgage to pay and a business to help run.
My plate is fully loaded.
People are responsible for themselves and their own circumstances.
I very much prescribe to the idea of the rugged individualist.
Frankly,I am not worried about Puerto Rico. Only up to a certain point.
Although, they are my people.
After we go. The prob of PR wil still be there. One has to put things in perspective.
I made it on my own, busting my azz.
Pennysaver and Newsday paper routes when i was younger.
Mowing lawns and raking neighbors leaves for extra pocket cash when i was quite young.
Busting my ass by Breaking down and setting up my mother's table in Long Island flea-markets (She was going back to school herself after buingy a home while she sold various forms of merchandise on the side)
I Worked with my stepfather sweating in the sun doing masonry work (Paving driveways, bricklaying, etc).
Working in the South shore mall selling clothes after school and during LI college days.
Busing and waiting tables. Then advancing on to working in swankier Downtown Manhattan establishments after i got good experience under my belt. I was that good.
Salesman in clothing stores again in Manhattan.
Working in a yeshiva in Upper Manhattan.
Moonlighting as a nightclub bouncer.
I ,now, train private clients on strictly a gym part-time for extra cash which comes in mighty handy.
I have my own thing after putting up with a lot of crap from my in-laws to get it, and i still grin and put up with them (I won't say here what it is because is not anyone's business)
THERE ARE NO FREE LUNCHES in this world.
AGAIN....It is up to the individual to get off their azz and stop complaining.
If this doesn't work out. I always have my education to fall back on and i will just finish up my credits and proceed onto graduate or law school as i originally intended after my kids are raised.
I will just keep on keeping on.
(Each individual is responsible for themself and the way they turn out)
AGAIN. No complaining, Jorge!.... Just get up and do!!

Shame on you for telling so much about yourself.
Is your arm tired of patting yourself on the ack after your inlaws helped you so much fopr their daughter and grandchildrens sake?
Hang your stuck up head in shame.
And stop complaining!

And jorge, they were not hardships. That is part of growning up. Kids mowing lawns here in the summer is a normal part of growing up and setting up a table and then taking it down again is nothing.
He is milking for sympathy.
