By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
The United States (US) forced her citizens on Puerto Ricans in 1917. In order to vote in the so-called “Puerto Ricans elections” Puerto Ricans must swear loyalty to the US. The US has ignored 42 United Nations resolutions asking her to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
Due to the fact that 38 million Americans live in poverty, while 8 of the 10 richest men in the world are US citizens, is the US really a democracy?
Due to the fact that the People’s Republic of China has already eradicated her poverty, despite having 4 times the US’ population, is the US really the champion of democracy?
Due to the fact that only 40% of US citizens are satisfied with our government, while 90% of Chinese are satisfied with theirs, is the US really the leader for the free world?
Due to the fact that most nations consider the US as the biggest threat to peace, can Puerto Rico gain her independence via colonial elections?
Wouldn’t it be better if the 6 million Boricuas in exile, and the 3 million Boricuas in Boriken engage in permanent resistance to force the US to comply with international law?
Elections would be preferable in a real Puerto Rican democracy.
