Whose budget was thrown out of whack?

by José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


United States (US) President Trump said a year ago after Hurricane Maria, that Puerto Rico had thrown the United States Government’s (USG) budget out of whack. Can Trump’s allegation be substantiated by history? Click here to watch the video:

The USG tried to buy Puerto Rico several times before May of 1898, but Spain always refused.

The USG manufactured an excuse to go to war in 1898 to get Spain’s last remaining 4 colonies, notwithstanding the fact that Puerto Rico had already obtained her sovereignty via the Autonomic Charter of 1897.

The USG devaluated Puerto Rico’s currency 40% in order to impoverish Puerto Ricans even more after Puerto Rico became its colony.

The USG made all the laws against Puerto Ricans, so that USG’s interests could always be guaranteed.

The USG forced its citizenship on Puerto Ricans to try to divert their natural loyalty to their homeland towards the USG. Puerto Ricans must move to the US in order to enjoy all of the benefits of that foreign citizenship. Obviously, the USG designed it that way to get Puerto Ricans to leave their island, so that the USG could have her for itself! And its plan has worked excellently!

After 120 years of US colonialism, Puerto Rico’s budget has been thrown so much out of whack that more Puerto Ricans, 5.4 million, live away from Puerto Rico, as opposed to 3.4 million of us who refused to abandon our national territory.

Do you know that more soldiers are recruited for the US military in Puerto Rico than in any of the 50 states of the Union? Are Puerto Ricans more patriotic with their second class US citizenship than the first class US citizens, or are we more desperate due to our budget being thrown out of whack intentionally by the USG?

Join the permanent resistance to force the USG to comply with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism, and the 37 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. Get involved, because those who throw your budget out of whack and then turns it around to make you the bad guy, don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL!

Nací en NYC. Me mudé a Puerto Rico en el 1980 donde eventualmente me convertí en independentista al ver que PR no se administra para los boricuas. Me retiré tempranamente de la pedagogía para luchar 24/7 por la descolonización de Puerto Rico a través de marchas pacíficas anuales y empujar a la ONU hacer su trabajo. Necesitaremos un tsunami de gente protestando permanentemente para obligar a USA a cumplir con la ley internacional que prohíbe el coloniaje.
