1. Niiiice! It would be wonderful to add Puerto Rico as our 51st state!

They're very Democratic Party leaning and it would be nice to add two more senators and a few more Democratic House Representatives to our column.

It can't be with a little more than half of a little more than half the votes, as my niece who lives there put it.

It has to be a strong majority.

Are they represented by a voting rep??

If Puerto Rico is added then DC needs to taken care of also

77. Actually it doesn't. All they have to do is apply for statehood.

Unfortuanately, congress controls the city government so congress would have to apply to congress for statehood which is currently impossible due to the republican controlled house.

Constitutional amendment can still be blocked by racists and in more ways due to needing 3/4 of the states.

12. The flag is already cluttered enough. I like this one better:

The 13-star "Betsy Ross" flag. It's cleaner, IMO. All those stars on the current one look like an over-enthusiastic cake decorator got hold of it.

16. I don't mind adding PR or DC to the flag....

I'm not rooted in some tradition about how many stars are on the flag, but I don't like the round shape of the field aesthetically. I don't think it's appealing and I'm sure many agree.

Adding stars would ruffle the feathers of conservatives enough without finding opposition from those who are used to the square field. I don't think it'd fly (pun).

Even more perfect would be the chagrin of the racists and other assorted assholes who don't even know that Puerto Ricans are US citizens by birth.

81. Somehwat

Puerto Rican's are citizens by birth, but that citizenship is granted by congressional act -- not by the constitution, and could in theory be taken away or otherwise limited.

One advantage of Puerto Rico becoming a state is that people born there will enjoy the same birthright citizenship as everyone else.

Thanks for this. I hope to see a lot more flag ideas as this story unfolds. I am overwhelmed with emotion about this, my family came from PR and being a witness to this is absolutely huge.

Honestly I hope whatever happens happens quuckly. I can't take the constant suspense!

King Arther had a Round Table. I can see a Peace Symbol in the star field. I can also see Leonardo da Vinci's "Vitruvian Man"
The round star field goes back to our roots. It shows how we have grown. What's not to like?
