    Puerto Rico Chooses to Become the 51st State?!

    " In a slightly-less publicized election, citizens of Puerto Rico have decided to embrace statehood and become the 51st state of America. Although not all precincts have reported their tallies, 65% of votes that have been counted are in favor of statehood. Many Puerto Ricans wanted to vote in tonight’s election, but were unable to do so. Under its current relationship with the United States, Puerto Rico is only considered a territory, and is unable to participate in presidential elections. The territory also has a very limited representation in Congress, which causes some citizens to feel left out of the law making process in the United States. The transition to statehood has previously been proposed to Puerto Ricans, however citizens previously decided against statehood.

    Although the transition to statehood has been all but approved by citizens of Puerto Rico, there is still one more hurdle for the aspiring state to jump through: Congress. In order for Puerto Rico to officially earn statehood, Congress must vote on the matter. President Obama stated that he supports whatever the citizens of Puerto Rico support, which may help the territory in the long run. Although the election is over, one looming question remains: Where will the extra star go on the flag?



    Possible new flag for the US?

    #1 reason why Puerto Rico isn't a state, no one likes an odd number.

    Maybe if them and some other place bundle together, we could take this into serious consideration.
    "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first." John 15:18

    "True strength isn't determined by when a man has a lot and gives enough, but when he has nothing left but keeps on giving."
    "A man is determined by the strength of his will."
    "Courage has nothing to do with ascertaining any sense of certainty, but the will to go on even
    in the face of uncertainty." - Arhk

    As American Imperialism is still very much alive, I have no doubt it will be approved.

    They will be admitted if they honestly want to become a state, though I highly doubt they will change the flag. They will probably say "it's a representation of the original fifty states".

    It's like we had an illegitimate child, and we never took care of it and now it's coming out of nowhere asking for college tuition.
