I think the time has come for Puerto Rico to become a state. In Puerto rico life is almost identical like in the united states. I also believe do we should have the right to vote for a president like the people who reside in the UNited States. I hope finally the congress support Puerto Rico to become the 51 state.

As do I.

It's time for statehood. It's time for Congress to make this happen.

Agapito and his colonial crew will do everything in their power to bankrupt what's left of their colony, these next 4 yrs (in order to postpone, as much as possible, Puerto Rico's statehood admission).

I have a feeling that Agapito will be a one term governor. The PNP will be back in 2016 and they will get the ball rolling on statehood.

The only thing the PPD can do is to delay the inevitable. They might as well accept it and Puerto Rico can move forward.
