Historic Photo of the Day: The Tydings Bill

It could have been a reality …. Freedom, independence! Powers that be said: NO!!


Book - 12-10

On three occasions, the U.S. Congress offered to give Puerto Rico its independence.

In 1934, Senator Millard Tydings (D-MD), chairman of the Senate Committee on Territories and Insular Affairs, filed a bill in U.S. Congress that would give Puerto Rico its independence. Sen. Tydings even sent a telegram to Luis Muñoz Marín, and asked for his support.

Every elected official in Puerto Rico supported the Tydings Bill. Everyone in the Partido Popular Democratico (PPD) supported it…everyone but one.

Luis Muñoz Marín opposed it.

He even took a steamer to Washington, D.C., and lobbied against the Tydings Bill. He did it again in 1943 and 1945 – every time that Tydings re-submitted the Independence bill, Muñoz Marín rushed up to Washington to oppose it.

To this day, many people still wonder, why Luis Muñoz Marin opposed the Tydings Bill for Puerto Rico’s independence.

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
