In fact Puerto Ricans are Latino Americans. We have served among American soldiers in many wars for the United States. We vote from the main land for President of the United States. Doors will open up, especially for business if we can become the 51st State. Everything will change of course but times have changed as well. The majority of Puerto Ricans live and attend School in the United States. English is well spoken by those who put an effort to learn. Contradictions are everywhere in our island because people here buy American products, they use Federal Funds for Education, Food Stamps and housing. It has come to my attention that our people do not like to pay. The reason they do not want State Hood is because there will be taxes to pay that at this time they do not pay for.
Maybe a temporary State Hood should be established in order to see how it progresses. A year or two maybe five years of State Hood should give us room to test the waters before diving in and possibly drowning. June 11, 2017 is the big day here in Puerto Rico. It will be up to Washington, DC to give the final touches of this heated debate.
Only time will tell. Right now Puerto Rico needs to establish a business development plan and restructure our education system as well as our local emergency services.
