Puerto Rico Needs StateHood

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.


Puerto Rico Is Not Ready For Statehood

While Puerto Rico is facing a deep financial crisis it is impossible for the island to convince Washington for Statehood. The bottom line here is that the people who reside here for over 40 years are not in accordance with this decision. 51st State will cause a bigger problem here. Many people are claiming that Property Taxes, Vehicle Insurance, Home Insurance will go up. Here in Puerto Rico there are no Emergency Services available due to lack of funding. In the States things are different because taxes are paid, we see public service at work. Vehicle insurance is paid monthly but coverage is awesome due to the fact that they cover medical and vehicle damage as well as passengers. There are good things that come with being 51st State and there are bad things as well. What is the exact reason our Governor Ricky Rosello wants Statehood?

Statehood is needed to open the doors to business relationships, opening the doors to better health coverage, better emergency services, Social Security Income can be established for the needy. Puerto Rico will have an open opportunity to vote for Federal and State officials, Voting for Senate, Congress and for the President of the United States. Puerto Ricans do not realize the advantage that comes with being 51st State.

Minimum wages will be leveled to Federal standards. New Laws will be established in order to bring Puerto Rico back into normality. Puerto Ricans do not own the island as we speak, this island is a territory of the United States. We have no more choices here. Education will be monitored by the Federal Government. In my opinion, Statehood will benefit many people here.

It does bother me to hear people comment bad things about the United States and yet they pack their bags and move to Florida. This has been a constant battle for decades with Puerto Rico.

Contradictions are at it’s finest in my island.
