Post here if you support self-determination for Puerto Rico [View all]

They now say they want statehood...that is, they wish to end their colonial servitude and total inability to tax the megacorporations that bleed the island dry...so it seems to me we have a moral obligation to back the puertoricanos on this issue.

Also, do you think we should use Puerto Rico statehood as a case to remove the 435 seat limit on the size of the U.S. House? That size limit has been used for years as an argument against D.C. statehood(since some other state would have to lose some representation to accomodate a new state).

We need to start the discussion on this...since it may also be the key to starting the program of electoral reform(including the end of the Electoral College, instant runoff voting for presidential and gubenatorial elections, multi-member districts elected by pr for Congress, and perhaps other measures as well including national initative and referendums)that the country desperately needs.
