  •  I can't wait for the inevitable battle (1+ / 0-)

    when right-wing radio jocks and some Fox News anchors start calling PR statehood a ploy to elect more Democrats, and drive a wedge.  Some Republicans who used to support it will chicken out and try to kick the can down the road.

    Age 23. Voting in NJ-03. Lived most of life in NJ-01. Had Rush Holt represent me during my undergrad years and am now represented by Frank Pallone in my grad school.

      Yes, I think there will be a lot of racist / partisan backlash against PR statehood, but I don't think it will be amusing. If we can't give them a say in electing our leaders after they've voted that that's what they want, we have no moral right to claim territorial sovereignty over them. The situation with DC is bad enough, but at least they get to vote for president.
