I would've supported it if they hadn't ousted the reformer governor they had. Knowing that it's no surprise more democrats support this.

A socialistic country wants to join the US? Another liberal/democratic electoral college for the democrats?! That makes sense why so many wants get them in. I say he'll no, the libs are going to destroy our country and our take away our rights - would prefer to not give them more ammo.

Puerto Rico is actually considerably conservative. I hope they join the union.

Puerto Rico has a representative like our other territories, but it's actually up to them to vote to become a state.

Yes, and we need two more after Puerto Rico. That way the number of states will be 53 and we can really be "One nation, indivisible"

It would benefit! We put taxes in order, then we start receiving money. Even if we do sen in millions, we start getting it back!

No.. We would be getting taxes from the people there.. Even if we had to fix it up a little bit, it would be better in the long run.

Basically your asking us to do what britian did to us in the 1700s. Tax somone that is not part of our country. There just a colony. Even if we send money to them... I believe they should be a state so they can pay taxes fairly.

My reason for not supporting PR as the 51st state is that they repeatedly have indicated they don't want to become a state.

I say, let them be.

exactly 3rdparty. they are our territory or colony if you prefer we send, money to them. so let's make them a state. a new state and revenue for US. more states are better and will make us stronger

On november 6 54% voted "NO" to the "PRESENT FORM OF TERRITORIAL STATUS" and then 61% voted for "STATEHOOD" out of three "non territorial options".
