Let them go.
The way tough issues are addressed in DC , I think we will still be talking about what to do in 10 years.
Free Puerto Rico! Independence is the only just reward foe all we have done to Puerto Rico! /s/ If these people think they are going to saddle America with another two permanent Democrat Senators and 3 permanent Democrat Congresspersons and THEN stick their hand out and say “Pay me!” they are loco!
The only reason why I might disagree with this is 1) if we truly need PR as a naval/military base or 2) if there's a real chance that an enemy (China,Russia,Venezuela,Cuba,etc) might succeed in filling the vacuum created by our departure.
Statehood? No way,Jose! Independence? Maybe,maybe not.It could well be that the current arrangement is the least harmful to the US of the three options available.
Right! Cut them loose. They’re an albatross, and a parasite upon the USA.
My one trip there was downright scary. Bars on everyone’s windows, and houses fenced in and locked. We were advised by the hotel to NOT leave the grounds by yourself.
It’s a hellhole, and needs to cut-the-f^^^-loose from us.
Independent statehood? How does that work?
Since the rising voices are from opposing sides they cancel each other out.
Good Lord give them Independence please.
Puerto Rico = 2 politically diseased Schumer Senators + x mentally deranged Maxine Waters Clones Congressmen
Cut them loose!
Kicked then loose. They only want our cash and perks. let them see how harsh the world is without us.
Puerto Rico should be let go to be independent.
But they will never do it.
They live by sucking on the US Government teat.
Work harder, taxpayers, 4 million Puerto Ricans are counting on your money.
We can thank Teddy Roosevelt for this. Congress divested all the spoils of the Spanish American War, but he insisted we keep Puerto Rico.
I believe that Puerto Rico could be a great state. I believe the governor is Republican, so don’t judge. However, if we make it into an independent nation, we might have China as a neighbor.
I’m all for P.R. to become their own country, and be away from us.
They come over here flying their flag, speaking their language, and even in the military they do this.
Get rid of them, and tell the ones here they have to go back to their own country, their country which they love so much.
It’s time for the United States to cut ties with them.... Let the Spaniards have them back.
Cut ‘em loose!
The only way the country can survive another left-wing socialist, failed state would be for California to secede or be kicked out first.
LOL, Puerto Rico can go free and become rich. Open it’s naval bases/ harbor to the Chinese and the Russians, maybe even Iran. Of course that would eventually lead to a take over via immigration of the guests. Far fetched, the Monroe Doctrine with Trump will be enforced but with jelly fish backbone of of a Lib President it could happen??? I could see a typical Latin American dictatorship coming to power in PR. Maybe the Clinton Foundation can help them improve their economy. (”Their” = PR not the Clintons)
Independence ... what possible benefit would there be in making it the 51st state.
