They can become a State if they wanted to now.
Right- and they remain a commonwealth to avoid paying income tax
I was under the impression that they voted "yes" on becoming a state last week.
I know, I was trying to be diplomatic.
I thought they should have been a state decades ago
They've voted to become one, but that will take congressional approval. They should remain a commonwealth and enjoy the benefits. I'm thinking a move there would be good, then I don't have to pay income thievery tax.
omg that would be awesome if they did but i dont know why they not already a state tho
No. But, why don't we just put all the latin nations together in one big "bowl" because after all, all "latins" are the same and they all want to be Americans, right?
Yep, I knew Spanish would come in handy one day.
It depends who votes for it. The residents of P.R. or the Congress. Due to the great benefits that they get and the tax breaks, I am not sure they (P.R.) would want to do this.
No. They get an amazingly good deal as a protectorate. Plus, I think they have something resembling a national identity. I think Hawaiians would like to go back to the good old days.
