God help us if this happens. If they add Puerto Rico as a state, hopefully Texas or South Carolina or someplace conservative can secede.

I see you can already buy 51-star flags on Amazon.

I wonder how 51 stars would look arranged into a hammer and sickle?

Just incorporate it into Florida. I don’t want it to be a state either

Why not just give Puerto Rico independence?

Cuba, Russia, China, muslims.

I say we should help PR become an independent country.

The LAST thing we need is a debt-riddles state.

So apparently, some in Congress is wanting another Democrat state in the election process. Not a good thing and probably not going to happen.

Democrats need a few more million reliable voters, as the Mexican border is closing.

The average latino seems to love socialism, and accept state authority, corruption and control as a God-given fact of life.

Puerto Rico sits astride an international crossroads. Under the proper leadership it could be the Singapore of the Americas.
