PUERTO RICO HERALD
September 7, 2001
I see that Gerald Shinn is very ignorant ("Let Puerto Rico Go").
For Mr. Shinn and every for Americans information, not all Puerto Ricans voted; only Viequenses did.
My second point is that Americans, you or the presidents health is not being affected by the consequences of the chaff. Why dont Texas want these activities in their state? Because they know the consequences.
A third point is that Puerto Rico generates economic value for the United States. You probably think I'm crazy but let me tell you that the majority of commerce here is from the US and all that money that Puerto Ricans spend goes back to the United States in triplicate.
And, if you haven't noticed, Puerto Ricans are the ones fighting for you. They are always put in the first row of a battle, to defend you Americans and of course us Puerto Ricans.
Do you know how they/ we have been treated? As a stepson. You are very unconscious about what really goes on. I suggest you read and get educated before you write or talk about any island, republic or continent.
If the United States really wants Puerto Rico the President has the power to make Puerto Rico a state. They want something from us but they/you wont let us vote for the president. Do you think that's fair?
In conclusion, I want you to know that I would like and love Puerto Rico to become a state of the United States of America.
