They won't acquire statehood because the federal OSHA and environmental laws do not apply there. Major, major corporations like pharmaceutical and manufacturing companies do their dirty work there under lenient laws and far less oversight.

Because of yous selfishness soon there will be a universal basic income for all. Too fucking bad if your self-centered financial portfolio isn't going to like it.

Sorry to say but a failed country would also be a failed state if given statehood.
If i were Trump i would tell them when they can prove they can run themselves, like most states in our union then they could apply for statehood, otherwise, it will be another drain on the American taxpayer when we certainly don't need it.

Why?

Liberalism is disgusting. It makes people and whole societies a mess. No common sense, no logic, no honesty, no integrity, no real humanitarianism.

Instead just a bunch of lazy-ass, dumb, corrupt liberals playing games with champagne socialism.

The mindless tolerance and dumb-shit political correctness that the left loves to feed off of result in nothing but giant libtarded cesspools.

OH HELL NO

SOMEONE SET UP A POLL.

We gotta stop this!!!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75055317


Actually, no, we need to let them in. The shirtless, leather jacket-wearing, long-haired dude made a video about this topic, and he is a die-hardTrump supporter. Very smart guy who makes excellent points on this subject.

Puerto Rican citizens are ALEADY US citizens. They are an American territory, and can move to the mainland whenever they like. If conservatives get all pissy and turn them down on statehood, then down the line when they do get statehood, and they eventually will, they will harbor resentment against conservatives. Better to have Trump offer the bridge to full statehood, so conservatives can begin to woo them now.

Likewise, Guam should be granted statehood. It is comprised almost entirely of US military and their families. This can act as a counterbalance assurance of conservatism in new statehood.

Also consider the Cubans in Miami. Ev Rooney thought for sure they would collectively vote liberal. But they did not this last election cycle.

Plus, you have to consider the fact that individual states shift with each cycle. Maine is almost a swing state now. And when Alaska was admitted, they thought for sure that they would always vote screamingly liberal. Now it is probably the reddest state in the US.

Demographics change, and by opening up PR, theirs will also reflect this.

Puerto Rico’s government is banking on a push for statehood to solve the structural issues that led to its financial crisis.
Puerto Ricans will vote Sunday to decide the territory’s status.If statehood wins, as expected, the island will enact what’s known as the Tennessee Plan, an avenue to accession by which U.S. territories send a congressional delegation to demand to be seated in Washington.Puerto Rico will send two senators and five representatives, chosen by Gov. Ricardo Rosselló (D), later this year, once the plan is put into action.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 74910446

Aren't you ignorant. I'm an American retired in Mexico. I also lived in Puerto Rico for years. Let me educate you. Puerto Rico is suffering the same crisis Detroit suffered. The only difference is that they cannot file for bankruptcy protection because they are a territory (colony), not a state. If they would have been allowed this avenue, they could have been on their way to recovery years ago. Wall Street also had them by the balls, giving them money tax free. Investors loved that.

Puerto Rico is the most developed country in America (after the United States), if you categorize them as a county. No country comes even close. Puerto Rico lost 64,000 during WW2 and has been fighting in every US conflict ever since. Korea, Vietnam, both gulf wars, etc. Puerto Ricans (natural US born citizens) pay US payroll taxes. They have no representation in the US Congress and no right to vote for a US president. It's the only territory in the Americas that hasn't been independent.

So either they become independent or they become a US state. They cannot continue being a colony. And I can guarantee you've never visited Puerto Rico. Click on Google images and find out for yourself. Aside from the financial crisis, Puerto Rico must be one of the most beautiful places on Earth. They are just hanging by their balls right now. Any other state would have been back on their feet years ago.

And by the way, things are not looking that peachy in Canada with Fidel Castro's son (Trudeau). The fruit doesn't fall far from the tree. So next time you open a thread, inform yourself and don't appear so intellectually challenged. Visit Puerto Rico and then talk. Many states in the USA would love to look like Puerto Rico. I've been to many shithole cities that don't even come close.

Peace.

Oh, and I almost forgot. There are as many Republicans in Puerto Rico as there are democrats. In fact, Democrats thought that Florida would be an easy win because there are so many Puerto Ricans living there. They were wrong.

Cubans are almost 100% Republican, but Puerto Ricans are half and half (just like in the USA).
