In November 2011, documents were presented that consider admitting Puerto Rico to the Union as the 51st state. My question to all of you is simply "What do you think??" I'm using this topic as an Issue Proposal in my english class and would like some other views on the topic for my Exploratory Paper. Puerto Rico has very limited representation in Congress (I think only one individual) and he has little to no input on serious matters. Puerto Ricans are not subject to Federal Taxes such as an income tax unless they work in an American business or if they work inside the U.S. It has been a U.S. Commonwealth since 1898 and since then we have admitted Oklahoma in 1907, Arizona and New Mexico in 1912, and Hawaii and Alaska in 1959. Please...Keep it Civil. I would just like your thoughts on courses of action. Yes? No? Stay the same? Make a few changes??
