By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
The correct answer in a real democracy would be that the United States (US) government (USG) represents 100% of its citizens. But the truth of the matter is that it only represents 1%. How do we know that?
The fact that the USG militarily invaded Puerto Rico to make her its colony 122 years ago. The fact that the USG has never complied with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism for the past 75 years. And the fact that the USG has never complied with 39 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. It doesn’t matter which political party is in power. Click this link for more: http://webtv.un.org/watch/5th-meeting-committee-of-24-special-committee-on-decolonization/6051725003001/
Note the entirely different narrative by President Obama in these videos, from the one just mentioned. He pretends to be oblivious that the USG is committing a crime against humanity for maintaining Puerto Rico as its colony since 1945. He pretends that Puerto Ricans have rights, when people in colonies never do. He argues that we should use the colonial elections in Puerto Rico to decide what political status we want, instead of complying with the UN resolutions. He totally ignores that the USG did not hold democratic elections in 1898 to make Puerto Rico its colony. Moreover, Puerto Ricans were made US citizens against our will! But if we don’t know our own real history, we will believe what Obama says in these videos: https://youtu.be/45IETGP2el8
99% of US citizens have no rights, because there is no democracy. And there will never be, unless the 99% are willing to fight for it. We must, because the 1% has never wanted LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL! http://www.todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/
Not the 99% of the citizens.
