Puerto Rico Votes for Statehood

I saw this on a different site, and since I don't know very much about the issue myself (and it's late so I'm not particularly feeling like looking anything up right now), I will give you the link to both the site and the newspaper article.

Site

Article

Does anyone think that we might be seeing a 51st state soon? What will this mean for the politics of the US if this happens?

Why would they want another state when they got the perfect number 50?

Funny, when it comes to Puerto Rico becoming a state, this is the ONLY thing anyone seems to care about.

If you wanted to keep the numbers the same you could combine North and South Dakota into Super Dakota. (So only the north had to change its acronym)

I don't think the 18 people who live in South Dakota and North Dakota would approve of that.

Don't give them a star.

Flag redesign = solved.

EASY.

edit: Wow. 9 million native-born Puerto Ricans in the world and 5 million are living in the States. That's insane. Over 50% chance of your kid leaving the island.

Can Poorland become the 52th state?

We have 38 million people here, and 10 million in US. Is 20% of Poorland's population living in States not enough?

53rd state.

UK is the 51st and Puerto Rico the soon-to-be 52nd


Resisting the monstrosity of American expansion is popular in Latin America, but I'm amazed it took this long to finally passively beat them into submission, sorrow, and defeat. With half of my countrymen living elsewhere I'd probably just throw my arms into the air and say "**** it".

Ireland already has become a Polish colony. You'll take us under your custody, or you'll have 50% Poles in US after 100 years, let me warn you

It would be sort of ironic if they did, though. What with America originally being a European colony and all.

50% of Poles will be living in the US or the US will be 50% Polish?

Polish women have their work cut out for them.

First Puerto Rico, then Guam. Those are the next to states, in that order.

And yet people forget about Guam, just like they forget about a bunch of other states.

Chicago already has a Polish population larger than any area outside of Warsaw.  AND the state of Illinois is being practically run into the ground by worthless politicians.  You should come here, DF - it'll be just like home.

Or if you're unhappy with the election results Corribus, you could always move to Poland... exactly like home right

It will be after another four years of Obama in the driver's seat.
