    Puerto Rico Statehood?

    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?

    Puerto Rico Statehood?

    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.

    Personally I think it is the Dakota's that should unite. As a nation our north/south divisions have been much more problematic.

    Feck that! We're a big enough state with our own issues as it is. Don't want more from a useless and out of left field combination.

    I don’t think that anyone that does not live in Puerto Rico cares. I don’t think that the majority of people in Puerto Rico care either.

    Re: Puerto Rico Statehood?

    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.
