Ok what I am about say might get a few of you mad but this is just me. Not being disrespectful at all. To me is really wouldnt matter cuz I was born in NJ. But I do have family in the Island. This is just something thats going to be a big deal for a long time. Cuz not everyone sees it the same way. I have family that says it would be great to be a state then other say that it would be the worst thing for PR to become a state. It would really effect me since I am not planning on moving there. But to be honest they should just put it in a vote off.. you never know what the ppl of PR really have to say..

OH yea and I want to stress something that they said which was **** 'I believe that if you are eligible to join the United States military and defend our constitution and defend our freedoms, then you should have the right to vote for president.'*** I belive that so much.. Ricans were sent first in alot of wars. Anyone who has older grantparents still alive know what I am talking about. IF they want statehood or not i still believe they should be able to vote. OK I done..lol... GOD BLESS TO ALL. AND A SAFE RETURN TO ALL OUR TROOPS!!!!

Its not up to the United States to let PR be the 51 state. It is up to PR"S president & gov. to decide whether or not they want to be apart of the United States. & who are we to say yes or no when our opinions really dont matter on this topic because we dont have the power to make it a state.

Puerto Rico a state!!! That make me feel very agree, why you may ask yourself. The united states have done everything humanly possible to take the Boricua culture away. From trying to impose they language to trying to poison are beautiful women so they can?t have kids. Why become a state for some us Boricuas we have come to depend to much in the usa from welfare to SS. We are scare to think if we become a part of the united state the island vanish from the face of the earth. What is my say on Puertoro being state hood I say hell NOOOOOO? Y eso que disen que si es por lucro personal y no por orgullo o por que quieren lo major para su isla. Puerto Rico es la unica colonia que hisistes en el mundo y eso que los estados unidos son Buenos verdad?. Metasen la estadida por el culooooooooooooooooooooooooo? Or for those that are so call Boricuas and don?t know how t oread or write or speak it take ur statehood and putting up urrrrrrrrrrr assssssssssssssssssssssssss?
Me despido un Humilde Boricua que no quiere habrasos con la vida sin ver a su Patria libre?..
