by José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
A democracy is a form of government designed to be for the People and by the People. Many Puerto Ricans say that Puerto Rico is a democracy. Is she really?
Puerto Ricans were militarily invaded by the United States (US) government in 1898. The year before the invasion, Puerto Ricans had real autonomy from Spain via the Autonomic Charter of 1897. Puerto Rico became suddenly a US colony.
All the laws affecting Puerto Ricans today are against Puerto Ricans. Puerto Ricans were forced to be US citizens 1917. Puerto Ricans must use US expensive ships to transport all cargo in and out of Puerto Rico against their will. Puerto Ricans are forced to close down schools against their will, because the US government wants to get more money out of them.
Puerto Rico is bankrupt, because she can’t run our nation with all of the laws going against her! That is why more Puerto Ricans live off Puerto Rico today than on.
Puerto Rico is not a democracy, despite Puerto Rican elections every 4 years. That is only to fool the Puerto Ricans who say that they live in a democracy.
Puerto Ricans need to turn off their television sets and radios that are controlled by the Federal Communications Commission. Puerto Ricans need to stop watching the movies controlled by the US government. Puerto Ricans need to learn independently of the schools with US accreditation. We must, because we have been brainwashed during 120 of US colonialism.
Puerto Ricans must use resources not controlled by the US government to learn our real history. We must organize ourselves to force the US government to comply with the United Nations’ Charter and its 37 resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans.
Why must we get involved? Because if we don’t, Puerto Rico will be a US colony forever. We must get involved, because, those who have maintained Puerto Rico a US colony since 1898 don’t believe in LIBERTY AND IN JUSTICE FOR ALL! https://www.facebook.com/groups/1697349163904877/
