The Democrats will give Puerto Rico statehood and have permanent control of the government forever.
"Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely"
They have gotten away with their Russian Collusion scandal, their baseless impeachment scandal, and probably with their Mass Voter Fraud scandal and their Censorship scandal.
Expect more of the same.

Doubutful.

But certainly DC and PR (and the other outlying areas) should have statehood....


Its crazy that we have citizens who are not considered citizens of a state.

Take the outlying areas and have them become parts of the current 50 states. Take the 3 electors from DC and get rid of them. DC residents become residents of Maryland (or VA--whichever). Its silly to have an even number of electors as well.

The Constitution mandates the existence of Washington DC. It can never become a state without a constitutional amendment.

What's "crazy" about it? America has always had federal territories from its founding.

BTW, should Guantanamo Bay be admitted as a state as well? If America had admitted the Philippines as a state, we wouldn't have been able to give them independence. If the Panama Canal Zone had been admitted, JImmy Carter couldn't have given our canal away (I guess that would have been good)

No they shouldn't. Why not give statehood to our military base in Cuba?

No they should not, because this nation was made for Americans and for freedom. We will now allow an interest opposed to those causes to rule us, ever...

If you want the Venezuelan experience, stick on a boat. That's the only way to teach some idiots that free shit is not free.

Here is what the Dems will say about the Republicans who vote against Puerto Rico statehood.
"You are a Racist"
It is their go to racist demagogue tool that is very worn out.

Actually it can...or it can be absorbed into Maryland and VA.

I'd tell you more but I'd prefer to keep you as ignorant as always

if we gave Gitmo statehood, the Dems would allow the 9-11 Islamic Terrorist to vote in our elections.

There's no guarantee that PR would become a Dem stronghold. They tend to be a religious and conservative group.

Dems however believe America citizens deserve proper representation.

Republicans however refuse to take the chance of losing political power regardless of citizen's rights.

Why can’t Republicans convince Puerto Rican’s that they will be better off under Republican policies?

We have observed what happens when the Democrats take total control of states.
It gets so bad that the vital middle class taxpayers flee.
CA, IL and NY are about to lose congressional seats after this census.
If the Dems gain total control of our country, people will start leaving the country also.
Or perhaps some states might opt-out of the union.
If States choose to abandon the Democrat Hegemony, will it cause another civil war?

DC Statehood is next.

Currently taxation without representation.
DC pays more Federal Tax than 22 states yet they have no vote on how that money is spent

I'm sure there are some statutory limitations and hurdles to clear. As with everything involving our constitution....there are things that its obvious we should do that we will never, never, never do. Why? Because we're not adult enough to admit the evermore present truth that our framers--who probably represented the brightest minds on the planet at the time--couldn't make a business plan that would exist through the ages for Infinium. That and our politics and cynicism are so paramount that it prevents making the changes that we all know must be made.

Actually, it can't. Yeah we could merge the existing teritory into neigboring states, but then we would have to create another DC. The Constitution madates its existence.

Do you even have a clue about how batshit crazy you sound?

Puerto Ricans, citizens of DC, etc.. fought in our wars (and continue to do so). They should belong to a state you dimwit.
