I’m a proud Puerto Rican! All my life I believed/hoped the American intention to “chose” Puerto Rico as a state. Little did I know my view would completely change. Puerto Rico should be a sovereign nation! The USA doesn’t deserve Puerto Rico!! If allowed by the “master”, the Island should stand on its own. It would be a “bumpy ride”, lots of work, starting from zero …. It’s time to give up the colony/possession … after returning all of what has been taken and robbed!
A recent poll conducted by El Nuevo Dia resulted in 65% support for Puerto Rican statehood, 28% against, and 7% unsure.
This “poll” reminds us of the old adage: “There are lies, damn lies, and then there are statistics.”
The owners of El Nuevo Dia, the Ferré family, are well-known supporters of the statehood option. In addition, the size and demographics of the sampling universe for this “poll” were not clearly announced.
Most significant of all, statehood for Puerto Rico is an illusion.
It is a pipe dream.
The PNP should stop smoking that pipe, and here is why…
THE UNITED STATES OF ATTITUDE
In 1898, when the US first occupied the island, this was their attitude…what some of the “best and brightest” had to say about Puerto Ricans:
“They’re a heterogeneous mass of mongrels…savages addicted to head-hunting and cannibalism.” (Senator William B. Bate )
