By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico
The United States (US) government (USG) refuses to tax the 1% of its citizens. What has been the result of that?
The good news for the 1% is that 8 of the 10 richest men in the world are US citizens. The bad news for the rest of us is that the US is the epicenter of the coronavirus with over a million deaths. Click on the following link to understand how we got here: https://youtu.be/EvfYClz6ekM
The US 1% have been served by having maintained Puerto Rico as a US colony for the past 124 years. But by doing so, the USG has violated, for the past 77 years, the United Nations’ (UN) Charter that prohibits colonialism for being a crime against humanity. Moreover, the USG has ignored 41 UN resolutions asking it to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=otzBslJLbI0
In order to hide its crime and look like the USG is democratic, it tells Puerto Ricans that they must decide whether they want to remain a US colony, be the 51th state of the Union, or be an independent nation. Then, the USG wants them to go to Washington, so that the USG can decide what it wants to do. And that, the USG calls its “Rules base order (RBO)”.
We must, therefore, engage in permanent resistance to completely change the US’ RBO to international law. We must, because the US’ RBO serves only the 1%, while international law serves 100% of the people. https://todosunidosdescolonizarpr.blogspot.com/
Because the 99% is allowing it!
