    I was playing devil's advocate there, I was curious about your answer.

    Now that her name was revealed, I am willing to bet that activity in this forum has decreased and activity on google has increased by an equal amount.

    Afterward there will be 1-2 minutes of silence and then the washing of the hand.

    Too many more Democrats! Don't think so. Be like voting for a one party system if the states had a chose of voting for it. They already get all the benefits of being a state except voting. Tsk! Tsk!

    Moderator's Warning:
    The 51st State: Puerto RicoSorry to ruin the fun, but we are getting complaints from certain adult sites that, with this young lady's picture appearing here, they are receiving less traffic.

    That's what it seems like.

    Other than people who already vote Dem, there is no good reason for them to get voting representatives.

    Re: The 51st State: Puerto Rico

    IN theory I have no problem with anybody with in reason becoming a state(s)
    Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba etc.

    The only problems I see is security. Always a concern protecting an island away from mainland

    the other of course is, quality of life? Like how far a society is below ours and how much would it cost to bring them up to standards above the new taxes we collect from them?

    But in general Im all for it.

    Can anyone educate me on real serious CONS of the matter
