Report by the President's Task Force on Puerto Rico’s Status

There is very little that goes on in this lovely island of Puerto Rico that is not somehow permeated with status politics. Today The White House released the Report by the President's Task Force on Puerto Rico‚’s Status. I have always favored statehood for Puerto Rico as a preferable solution to independence. Puerto Rico's current status is unstable. Just think, Congress can do away with our U.S. Citizenship unilaterally according to this Report.

My wish for the coming year? That all local politicos would only say things to the public as regards the status issue that would serve to properly educate the public and help them make proper choices, rather than the choices necessarily advocated by the particular politicos. If they do this, then win, lose, or draw I'll be more than satisfied.
