PP Question: Yes, or No on Puerto Rican Statehood

Note: This is the first edition of PP Question, which will be featured every Monday afternoon on the blog.

I have a question for the faithful readers of Pundit Press: should Puerto Rico become our country's fifty-first state, or remain one of our five territories?

Conservatives do not exactly have one general opinion on the subject, as some (including myself) support the notion of Puerto Rican Statehood, but we do not want it forced down their throats, while others strictly oppose the idea outright under all circumstances for several legitimate reasons.

The United States has not admitted a new state since Hawaii's entrance in 1959.

It will be interesting to hear some of your thoughts on the very important issue.

What say you?


  1. I have no problem with PR becoming a state or independent. The commonwealth option appears to be making no one happy right now.

  2. I have no problem with Puerto Rico becoming a state.

  3. I had the misfortune of being stationed in Roosey Roads back in `84.
    It was a third world country then and it hasn't gotten any better since.
    The Communist Machiteros grew up and became the .GOV.
    Just like our anti-war hippies.

    F*ck Puerto Rico.
