EVERYONE WANTS PUERTO RICO TO BE THE 51ST STATE? THAT IS A LIE!!
In the last days, I have been seeing people writing that EVERYONE wants Puerto Rico to be the 51st state of the union. Let me guarantee all of my readers that whoever says that is a LIER!!
For your information, first and foremost, the ideal if statehood has been presented to the people of Puerto Rico 4 times and statehood has LOST IN ALL OF THEM! The second thing is that this is a decision that has to be made by Congress and they DON’T WANT IT TO HAPPEN!
I must make it clear that my views are non-partisan, here or in Puerto Rico.
Anyway, I am including an article written last year by Julio Varela. It is more than a logical explanation about why Puerto Rico will NEVER be a state. I hope you enjoy this article. As always your comments are welcome. But please, don’t lie saying that ALL Puertorricans want statehood. You know better than that. You know who you are……see you next week.
