Plenty of PR folks still want independence. Most PR folks don’t want Statehood.


Marcha No a la Estadidad, Si a la Independencia - 12 de septiembre de 2021


even among folks who want statehood... I'd put money down that most of them just see it as a compromise because the current status ACTUALLY SUCKS (most people agree), because they're literally scared of what independence might mean. Because the US *ruined* us. The Republicans ruined PR. They know that if PR becomes a state, it will be Democrat.


@blackskye It wasn't the Republicans. It was the whole shebang. All the US politicians have been in on it. Democrats suddenly wanting PR statehood as a political power move is a recent development. They didn't even consider it before.

· · Web · 1 · 0 · 0 It has never been recent. It's been going on for at least two decades, since the Obama years. The Republicans were charge for years and they sabotaged the system against PR.

@blackskye The system has been sabotaged for PR much longer than that. See also: project bootstrap
