A Vote For Statehood

Puerto Rico Report

“Puerto Rico has chosen to become the 51st State of the Union. Statehood won yesterday’s plebiscite by a landslide: 97% of votes cast favored statehood.  Among the other two options on the ballot, the current territorial status received 1.3% of the vote and independence/free association had 1.5% of voter support….”

Any person who does not believe in miracles (“an extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency. The miracle of rising from the grave.”) start believing. As the paragraph above from Puerto Rico Report stated, the people of Puerto Rico have voted for statehood. Some of you may think miracle is a bit strong for this vote; however, those who have some knowledge of the Island’s history would, as I am doing, place this vote for statehood right next to “The miracle of rising from the grave.” Puerto Rico has been since 1898, buried under a bureaucracy of unnecessary and unfair USA legislation, plus, since 1948, the people of Puerto Rico have been buried under the corruption of the Popular Democratic Party. Now they have risen.
