This cracks me up. Eventually this party is going to split between the Soberanistas and the "permanent union"/"traditionali st" supporters. Neither fraction can win without the support of the other fraction within the party. What's the point of having a party that cannot agree on status?

Jose Alfredo Hernandez Mayoral called the Soberanistas "a bunch of clueless idiots" a few weeks ago.

My greatest hope is that those "permanent union" defenders/traditional commonwealth supporters see the light and join the statehood movement rather than support colonialism.

Statehood is inevitable. It will come.

Not a question of "if" anymore, just when.

Agreed, it is inevitable. This is why the PPD is so desperate to call a constitutional assembly because then they can dither and babble and delay it for a a little bit longer. Everyone within the PPD knows damn well that Washington will never approve of any "enhanced/improved/perfec ted/new commonwealth". Ever since the 1990s the goal of the PPD has been to delay since they know they cannot stop.

Some people within the statehood movement are pushing for March 2nd 2017 - the 100th anniversary of US citizenship - to be the date Puerto Rico formally enters the Union.
