In prior editorials, I have explained why statehood for Puerto Rico is nearly impossible: politically, financially, and socially, the US simply does not want it.
The most prominent member of the Statehood party is ex-Governor Luis Fortuño (2009-2013).
In recent interviews and editorials, even Fortuño is stating that due to the $73 billion public debt, statehood for Puerto Rico has become extremely unlikely.
This is a very serious admission, on the part of Fortuño.
If the leader of the Statehood party (PNP) admits that his party cannot deliver statehood, then what’s the point of voting for it?
That would be like buying a car that does not move.

Or shopping for a refrigerator that does not cool.
Or buying a pig and asking it to fly.
Or milking a cow, and expecting champagne.
Or betting on a horse with a broken leg.
Or buying a lottery ticket to last week’s Lotto.
Or marrying a woman who hates you.
I am not a psychiatrist…but voting for a Statehood party that is already telling you there will be no statehood, seems fairly insane to me.
So what happens now?
That is an excellent question.
The Commonwealth Party (PPD) has killed the Puerto Rican economy.
The Statehood Party (PNP) admits that there will be no statehood.
Both of the parties are corrupt.
Gee…maybe it’s time to look at INDEPENDENCE.
