Taxation Without Representation. An American love story.

The commonwealth of Puerto Rico has an infrastructure and an institutional framework guided by the regulations of US federal agencies, which have an active and continued presence in the island. It’s trading partners are the United States itself. So basically it’s a dictatorship. It reminds me of our American history class: The British and “No Taxation Without Representation” AKA the American Revolution. Damn, if that isn’t the same Damn thing. Puerto Rican citizens haven’t been given the rights to be the owners of their own destiny nor given representation for the all taxes paid. Thousands of miles away but still a territory of the United States. Let’s take a look at Washington D.C.  it’s a state that is represented by congess but it’s different for Puerto Rico and it’s citizens in its taxation, trade, air space etc. The United States treats Puerto Ricans in a less than human like manner and if you are afrolatino your in a worst situation of racism right on the island of Puerto Rico, colonialism has a way of creating racism.

How long can you milk a cash cow without the present chaos. Manipulate its financial infrastructure so that it’s financially ruined. Then the island is open to vultures and scavengers seeking to take over with smiles while daggers are in the backs of the Puerto Rican People. Puerto Ricans have fought in large numbers side by side in American Wars. A long  lists of American campaigns have been headed by Puerto Rican Americans. So don’t treat us like second to third class citizens. We are American citizens during war and peace.
We earned our rightful place in America and earned the right to be owners of our destiny on our Island of Puerto Rico and mainland US. So real quick: Respect our Island and dump that ridiculous vulture hedge fund and big government spending that created the Puerto Rican Debt. This So Called DEBT was paid a long time ago with blood, lives, sweat, and tears.
