America’s Colony

US citizens at birth but with no representation in Congress or the right to vote for the US president has left many Puerto Ricans with a bad taste in their mouths for the USA. I suppose you can’t blame them as they are neither in nor out.

For those of us who do have representation in Congress and can vote for the Presidency what exactly do WE get from Puerto Rico? Puerto Ricans do not pay federal income tax (unless they work for the US government) so a net negative amount financially. With all of the anti-colonial protests going on around in the world I would hope that AOC votes to take the USA out of the colony business! What is she waiting for?

And that is all i’m going to say about that!
