    How would admitting any territory as a state improve the U.S.? I'm personally against Puerto Rico becoming a state, but that's because I don't think Puerto Rico should want to become a state. I think they should simply go for their independence from the U.S. but that's unlikely.

    It's a scam by the socialists to get more Hispanic votes.

    WoW!!

    Disparaging a whole country and/or racial type.

    Classic Neo-Con rhetoric.

    Keep it up.
