    These are images of Puerto Rico around the 1930's

    And this is modern Puerto Rico. Except for the tourist sections. All we need to do is give them a bucket of nails and a few pieces of plywood or cardboard, and then everything will be back to normal.

    They applied for statehood.

    PR and the other territories can vote to become a state in the US but none of them ever vote for statehood.

    Florida's a nice place, and we shoulda given Texas back after we took all the oil. (-:

    Seriously I never understood why PR didn't become a tourist destination after Cuba went commie. Nevada? Seriously, Nevada. We used that place for nuclear and biological weapon tests.

    Apparently they did many times, but their votes never succeeded. I don't know why.

    On 2nd thought, since they are all US citizens, the best for Puerto Rico would be if they all deport themselves to like Florida, then declare the island a wild life sanctuary, and take in huge profits on exclusive hunting permits.

    They can market it as the dinosaur island waiting to happen, like the Jurassic park. They look like that already anyways. :)

    No way TH! It's already being speculated that if the PR's start to run to Florida they'll turn Florida blue and wreck it.

    This may be exactly what the powers that control Trump / Hillary / Obama want. By the way, every state will be blue in like 10 years, because 90 % of people will only care about who will cancel how much of their student debts.
