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.

StateHood or Not – Nothing Will Change

In reality we are facing the same issues no matter what status will be chosen for Puerto Rico. The United States is and has always faced a financial crisis, so a status will not change anything here in Puerto Rico. What our island needs is more business connections, more private investors. We need to change our current Political Status by opting out our current corrupted Politicians and replacing with honest people who are willing to work for the people of our island. Our island needs to have its communities reorganised and rebuild its infrastructure for a better future. Money needs to be placed in specific areas in order to see growth. Our island also needs to get rid of these Government contracts that are actually destroying our people, our Communities. This is something that nobody is aware of.

Puerto Rico is a beautiful island. We are a territory of the United States. So what is the real issue with our people? Puerto Ricans need to act upon the issues facing us right now. We need reinforcement with employment. We need to open local businesses and pay our taxes on time.  Our voices need to be heard and taken seriously here!

Let us educate ourselves more in order to rebuild a new and improved Puerto Rico. We can change only and when we decide to educate ourselves to be respected by others. This is our island, which needs our full attention. Puerto Ricans leaving the island should take responsibility and send assistance with FUNDS to those who cannot leave the island. Let’s open the doors to real business and take back our lost island. Que VIVA PUERTO RICO!!!
