Again, the PNP try another thing that would
bit them in there nose. Why? Because what
they try to do never comes from the heart but
of hate. This is why I also believe this
would free Puerto Rico once and for all.
This would force US to get rid of Puerto Rico sooner than ever and this is the reall
reason the PNP try this old trick.

For Puerto Rico to given the electorial vote would definitely make us noticeable, however, I think that the US will probably offer Puerto Rico statehood. This will be done only to appease us. Right now they are boiling in Washington because it has been placed as a possibility for Puerto Rican's to vote in this year's election. I know there are many that oppose it in Washington, but I don't think Washington will give Puerto Rico it's independence that easily. Even though the US complais about the monies the government has to ditch out to Puerto Rico, the US also knows that they are still profiting from the Island. With Latin American Trade becoming so important in the Global Market, I think that the US will hold on to Puerto Rico as long as it could.

Well, I hope US do not hold on to Puerto Rico for any longer. I believe Latin America wants Puerto Rico to become part of the family of Latin Nations. This would benefit US more.

Do you really think this? I believe your assumption is Wrong and this is why I believe that.
If they grant us the right to vote for the President as we stand (Which I Doubt) They would probably move fast to grant us Statehood. For if it is true that there are some congressman that would not like PR to become a State there are some that Would.(It just amuse me the way most people that want independence always speak as if they were a majority and when they say that congressman does not like puertorican to become a State they also claim that it is the majority of them that don't.)Let me explain! It is not as simple as to say "HEY! WE WANT YOU OR WE DON'T WANT YOU AS STATE" there are other things to consider. Like is it Viable,Is it the right choice for us and for them? Congress is a complicated part of Government. And to make a decision it goes thru a process.
On the other hand if it does not permit us to vote for the president it is not because they don't like us like you said. This is not kindergarden, where you say they don't like me teacher! I believe if they would accept us to vote for the President as we stand it Would open a Pandora's Box since they would have to grant the same right to Guam, Samoan, Us Virgin Island, and the Northern Mariana islands. So as we can see it is not how you paint it.

You are right. As you could see I am not
alway 100% right. Thank you for your point of view.
