Puerto Rico wants to become the 51st state of the US. Guess which political group not just hates the idea but racist hates it?
I like how one conservative wants to make Israel a US state. I am sure Israel, with their collectivist kibbutzim and socialized medicine would be a great way for Republicans to defeat Democrats…oh wait…..
My second favorite comment is that making Puerto Rico is part of Obama’s nefarious plan to change the shape of the American flag.
And then it gets worse….
Great idea. 3 million more socialist voters in the voting booths.

2 more Rat Senators and another 1 million Rat votes, and 3 million more on the dole, what could go wrong?

Puerto Ricans pay U.S. taxes, not in Obama’s America.
They will trade voting for dimocRATS for taxes.

Can we make Israel a state?…. with 120 electoral votes?

It’s not about votes.. It’s about 0bama getting the excuse he needs to CHANGE OUR FLAG. I’m thinking the color ‘yellow’ is top on his list. Bye bye old glory. Phase II of the grand Socialist transformation. Will probably have his ‘O’ or his picture on it, too.

The people who want this keep having these votes every few years. I guess they won’t stop until the Puerto Ricans give them the answer they want.
I think statehood is a bad idea. It certainly isn’t something to be rushed into on the basis of a slight majority in a nonbinding resolution. The Puerto Ricans are products of a different cultural tradition—Spanish-speaking and Catholic. The colonies which later formed the United States were English-speaking and 99% Protestant (seeing Spain as the enemy and generally holding anti-Catholic attitudes). A lot of Puerto Ricans may have moved to the mainland, but few if any non-Hispanic Americans have gone to Puerto Rico to live.
Statehood is irrevocable, or at least the outcome of the War between the States seems to have established that. What if PR became a state and twenty years later everyone thought independence was better? If they were allowed to leave, 600,000 lives were wasted to establish the principle that secession is not allowed.
That’s in addition to a Puerto Rican state being a guaranteed two Democrat senators and five Democrat congressmen—and 7 electoral votes for the Democrat nominee for President.
As for the flag, we could either keep it at 50 stars and require Vermont to become a province of Canada, or add a star. 51 is 3 times 17—so could have a set of three rows of stars 8 across and a set of stars 9 across, alternating rows—might not look too bad. I remember when Hawaii became a state and my father thought there would be a problem with a 5 by 10 arrangement. They worked out something different.

But you have to understand that ‘Hispanics’ are among the largest law breakers in America. 1/3 of those incarcerated in the federal prison system are illegal aliens. Many who come here are takers not makers, flaunt our laws, form lobbying groups to support lawbreaking, won’t learn English, and in the worst case declare they own the southwest. Hell, a few Hispanic entertainers are openly hostile to whites, for what reason I have no idea.

Heck yes, we need Puerto Rico as another state. Then Cuba, Mexico and a few African states - just as long as we don’t get stuck with more of those constitution loving white people.
Oh, and load up on more dope smoking homosexuals too… lots of ‘em.
AND, female with breathing vaginas…. I just learned on FR that those even exist, so I’m down for more breathing vaginas… I just don’t want them to talk.
No, I am not racist, but today - I’m starting to feel a wee bit ‘racist leaning’.

I don’t have a problem with Hispanics. However, I do recognize that unrestricted immigration has made assimilation next to impossible for large sections of Hispanics.
People are just scared because the party’s about ready to collapse, and nobody has any answers to fix things. The Hispanic Question has been around since the 80s, and nobody has answered it correctly.

I have always hated fags, liberals and democrats so yes, I am a racist. They’re the race I despise.

I have an even better idea. Let’s let all of those people who want to be a state move to the mainland and then those of us who are true patriots, conservatives, and want a minimal government all move to the island and make it our own country.

The measure will require approval from the US Congress
I’m sure the House voting this down will do wonders for the GOP and the Hispanic vote.
Everything is a racial booby-trap.

The 51st and a new welfare state? People will always vote themselves money if they can.
They want some of those handouts Obama has going around, and now is the time I guess.

Once they start paying taxes, they’ll become more conservative.
I’m not so sure about that; voting Hispanics went 71 percent for Obozo. The Dimocrats (and a few Republicans) have done a good job of painting conservatives as anti-immigration. Once that label sticks, it’s tough to get rid of.

In the annexation of Texas there was a provision that Texas could, when it wanted, separate into as many as 5 states. At least 4 of those would currently be conservative, and with a bit of Gerrymandering, Austin could be perhaps be coupled with enough regular people to balance it.
Of course it would be interesting if the re-admission of Texas after the War of the Rebellion would make that provision of the annexation of Texas null and void, or not.
I think East Texas, North Texas, West Texas, and South Texas would be good names, and perhaps Austin. Then there would be only two more to go….

why don’t you leave this forum

their job well done

What I hate about hispanics is their constant voting for leftists..with few exceptions
and their illegitimacy rates
and that over half that have been here 20 years are on some sort of dole
and that those vote anti white but I’m supposed to excuse them?
I’m sick of it…making excuses for them got us here
because they were non white mostly …we looked the other way
meanwhile…Cubans…who do vote our way and know a thing or two about liberty have been left out to drown literally in the Gulf Stream while we give over our nation to left voting Amerindian illegals and legals who think our nation is one big crime against them and stole their land
I am tired of excusing…I am losing the land my forefather built…not your’s unless you are a Seguin…you can claim to be anyone i guess
I will not excuse the 70-80% because you are a nice guy sorry
but stupid Pollyanna freepers will…don’t worry and they will pander to you on their knees
and they are just as big a reason we are lost as the bad Mexicans are
I recognize you individually but will not look the other way anymore
Shooting war starts and folks better make sure they are lined up right…regardless of race.
Are you willing to turn against 80% of your DNA kinfolks?…don’t laugh…I have been in civil wars as a kid…these are real questions
that is not a question i have to answer given my own peoples
and don’t lecture me…I have two half latino daughters and I can assure you they know what time it is and are not asking for deference for latinos..see my homepage…and i lived in latin America off and on over a decade
they see the enemy
basically it’s this…..just plain and simple hoss…this is who hates my country:
70% of those who call themselves Hispanic…they think I owe them something…most just got here…bastards
97% of blacks…lost cause
75% of Orientals…why ..it can only be race… they sure don’t need the handout
70-90% of non Christians..irrelevant in numbers but not in influence but partially offset by some stalwarts on our side…see Mark Levin who said basically just what I am but more polite
90% single moms…worthless women…my taxes are their husband, their kids my responsibility and bane
Northern White Liberals in mandals with ugly women with hair under their arms from non Anglo ethnicity…another lost cause pretty much
this is it buddy…I warned folks here for 12 years that the demographics many here celebrated would kill us and it has
I hope ya’ll are happy.
My children and grandkids will likely make the ultimate sacrifice to try to save what’s left down the road
I disgusted that at this juncture your first cry is don’t pick on Hispanics
well..son…4 out of 5 deserve it…and not just for voting but for general cultural rot overall
if you can’t handle it then that is just too damned bad
I mean damn you epitomize what is wrong with the GOP today…Jeb Bush is waiting for your vote
Your identity or race matters to you and you ask for deference due to it. What about mine…White Southerner…been kicked around here since Lincoln was chasing Vampires…does mine count less then your’s?
Actually I think not…quite the contrary to be candid. My people are the few stalwarts left…but ridiculed by the same GOP that gave us Romney and will pander to you if you have brownish skin and last name ends in a vowel
The inability to deal with anything minority…not just illegal Mexicans but anything…has destroyed us.
Could we cherry pick only Cubans, Nicaraguense, Salvadorans, Colombian supermodels, Chavez refugees…I wish but we didn’t…we let in a big uneducated dependency class and they want their redress for everything from Azatlan to Taco Bell slurs
well screw em…they are a clear and present danger and if the forum wants to go that way (again) then screw them too
we did this to ourselves which makes it all the more sickening and the fact that so many here still fail to see that and keep up the racial sameness and outreach platitudes in light of utter defeat is absolutely nauseating
In 1980 Magnus won with 54% of white vote…last night we lost with almost 60% of white vote and the reason is almost completely due to how the brown invasion..legal or illegal …votes and why they vote that way…yet we the invaded and soon to be subjugated are the bad guys?
Kiss my butt…if non whites can’t get the message about liberty and Constitutional government then I’m not gonna excuse them..I’m gonna fight them and call them for what they are
and calling me bigot quit bothering me decades ago when I shed my freedom rider youth..after realizing my unappreciated folly

They …any minority…is either with us or they are the ENEMY in a battle for our land and way of life…not for me…I’m old…I will die soon enough
but for the young..like my kids
and I will not shut up because they are not ‘white’
and I will blast white collaborators with a vengeance
and applaud those minorities who see the light
but I am not standing down
not any more
we are headed for a dark path…I have lived this before as a spectator on the ground and I come from a part of America once scorched with this sort of strife and grew reminded of it every day
freepers are for the most part kool aid drinkers…they better ditch that
issues like this…don;t settle easy…even with as low ebb a dominant culture as we now have

To: wardaddy; Travis McGee; hosepipe
…if non whites can’t get the message about liberty and Constitutional government then I’m not gonna excuse them..I’m gonna fight them and call them for what they are…
Keep on fighting the battle against political correctness (which sadly exists even here, occasionally, here on FR) and continue to state the TRUTH! Well said, wardaddy, yon nailed it. America would be far better off if there were millions upon millions like you. By the way, if anyone hasn’t seen your “About” page, take a look. You have a beautiful, wonderful family and you are right to be very proud!
At the risk of getting zotted due to my too-brief tenure here, I think it’s high time that whites start voting for their self-interest. The blacks and Mexicans are applauded by the media when they march in lock step formation. Yet, when white Christians form a political coalition, they are pilloried. Unless whites coalesce, America will go the way of South Africa and will face genocide. The white man and woman (particularly Southern Christian heterosexuals) are rapidly becoming an endangered species in Obama’s dystopian America.
