Puerto Rico is having a referendum in November to choose whether it should be a territory, a state, an independent nation, or freely associated with the US.
What do you think it should be?
A place with regular referendums in which the three groups always seem to get 1/3 of the vote.
I don't think they should go independent.
Would that make it the 58th state?

Do they even want statehood? That's a huge deal whether they would even want it or not. West Virginia could re-unite with Virginia or we would have a flag re-design to do.
They should become an independent nation. The last thing we need is ANOTHER welfare state.

Since people have decided that once one decides to join the union as a state they are forever stuck with that arrangement it would be wise for them to decide not to be a state.
Also, considering that our freedoms are disappearing faster here than ever before it would again be wise for them to decide to not be a state.
The best choice for them is to completely leave us behind.
