I hope you get your wish and that Puerto Rico will be independent very soon. It will be a $16 BILLION dollar relief to the taxpayers of the United States. It is ironic that so many people from the Dominican Republic are literally dying to enter Puerto Rico to live under the form of government that you so obviously despise.
In answer point 1: Maybe Spain will take Puerto Rico back and we won't lose our language or our culture!
Point 2: Are you naive enough to tell me that if the Independentista party was in charge, no corruption would exist? You better take the 5th Amendment on this one!
Point 3: I can actually agree with you on this point! Puerto Rico would have a very, very powerful voice in Congress and affect the balance of Congress if it became a state.
Point 4: The argument has little basis in reality or fact. It is rich in exagerations and conjecture, however.
Point 5: As if independence is going to be able to keep industry here. What are you smoking?
Point 6: I don't know that you are right or wrong but at least the USA will see that no one starves or goes without education or without medical care. Will independence provide that to the people of Puerto Rico? How?
Point 7: You're kidding, right?
Point 8: It is also funny to read how you state that the Independentistas will "rise up" and commit terrorist acts if statehood comes to PR. What do think would happen if PR was given its independence by an Act of Congress because, ultimately, no plurality can be established? That all of the Puertorican people are going to accept independence without armed resistence? I would love to see that scenario get played out! Even if a plurality of Puertoricans voted for independence, what will be left after all the industries shut down because of the expense of doing business here, all those who do not support the independence of Puerto Rico move to the mainland (There actually are a LOT of people here who love the USA) and that $16 Billion gets reduced to 4 or 5 billion a year (or less)? How long before all those unemployed workers would rise up against the independent government of Puerto Rico? We could go back to growing sugar cane.....
Conclusion: Get real! PR will never be independent nor will its people allow it to become independent of the USA. Don Quixote, you are jousting with windmills!
