At a campaign rally in San Juan last week, GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson announced that he wants Puerto Rico to be the 51st state of the Union.
Congratulations. Carson can now stand behind Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Mitt Romney, Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, and every GOP presidential wanna-be for the past 35 years.
Hispandering in Puerto Rico
In every election the GOP candidates all swoop down on San Juan, talk a little Spanish, and promise statehood for Puerto Rico. Strangely, even when they get elected, this statehood never arrives.
The reason is very simple…it is a false promise.
It is a lie.
The candidates do not mean it.
They simply say it to win a few Puerto Rican votes, and some cash from the moneyed elite in Puerto Rico. This is called Hispandering.

After reading that, if you still believe that Puerto Rico may soon become the 51st state, then I would like to sell you the Brooklyn Bridge.
After that, I will show you how to put Humpty Dumpty together again.
