Puerto Rico is not a mere territory
por Ezequiel Gonzalez Friday, Jun. 16, 2017 at 12:58 PM

To make Puerto Rico a State of the United States would be the worst mistake the Union has ever made.

Puerto Rico is not a mere territory own by the United States and populated by (2nd class) American Citizens but another country, another nation, with our own history, national heroes, and sense of mythical origin and transcendental destiny. To make Puerto Rico a State of the United States would be the worst mistake the Union has ever made. Yet under the present fiscal crisis in Puerto Rico, caused primarily by self destructive actions by Congress back in the late 90’s, Uncle Sam may engineer a Statehood transition process in PR, that within a few years [or even months, if the Hispanic and the all powerful Jewish lobby in Congress, and the Hispanic and Jewish Media across the United States, decides to push it], PR could become the 51st State of the Union.

Yet to incorporate PR as a Federal State would be like swallowing a hard, sharp, pointed, living diamond, covered with milk chocolate. Uncle Sam has a big enough throat to do that. But once the milk chocolate melts away, there will be a nation, with a sense of national origin and destiny of our own tenfold stronger that the American, seeking our way out… to fulfill our own destiny. And eventually we, the Nation of Puerto Rico, will find that way out; and the wind and rain will wash away any blood and feces that may have stuck to us. What may happened to the guts of the beast, in the process, please don’t blame us for that.

[Sorry for the strong imagery, but presently there is no process for a State of the Union to leave the Union, and there is no room for another Nation to exists within the Union as a State of the Union. If PR becomes a State, the situation sooner than latter will deteriorate into a battle of wills between the American Nationality headquartered in Washington and The Puerto Rican Nation. In that ideological and transcendental struggle, Uncle Sam, you do not stand a chance. Honestly, if PR were to become a State, sooner or latter Puerto Rico will depart The Union and you will be left behind to fix the framework of your former Republic, for by then it will be broken into so many pieces, nations, regions, alliances and ideological tendencies….]

Thus the right and wise thing for The American People, The Union, The Federal Government, Washington and the elected officials to do is, first and foremost, to recognize that PR is not a mere piece of land owned by the Federal Government and populated by US Citizens, but a Nation, A People with an identity and a collective life of our own: a sense of origin, of present identity and future and prophetic purpose a zillion times stronger that the manifested destiny and pursue of happiness ideology the Union was founded upon.

Once that point is understood and internalized, the rest is easy. As the uninvited Imperial power that invaded PR in 1898, and stayed there against the will of the people till all the local economy had been destroyed, and then offered the residents of Puerto Rico a historical lie to keep them subordinated, it is the obligation of the federal Government and the American People to set up a process of true decolonization for Puerto Rico that will lead to full national sovereignty for Puerto Rico. This is not an act, a one time event, but a process that will restore to PR the National Sovereignty and economic and political tools that were taken away from us so that we may continue on our own path toward our own collective destiny.

Certainly, The United States do have national interests in Puerto Rico. Their military have invested heavily in PR: First in visible naval and military installations that were, at a given time, essential to national defense, and simultaneously in secret naval intelligence installations deep under the sea and at secret/sacred locations at various places in PR. Most of the visible installations are gone, abandoned and in disuse and yet the secret installations deep down under water and elsewhere are still there: growing, and so vital to the United States survival, that some would place them above and before the well being of those living on the surface of the Puerto Rico islands.

Those secret installations are vital for The United States national security and must be taken into account. So a process of transition, a Road Map toward PR National Sovereignty must be develop, that will take into account the various, and often contradictory interests, of all those concerned, including The Puerto Rican People and Government, The American People and Government, The America military, and the special interests built upon the secret installations.

That can be done. But the first step is to recognize that Puerto Rico is not a mere territory populated by American citizens, but a nation on our own, with a right and an obligation to become a free, Sovereign and Independent Nation: Free and Sovereign to pursue and fulfill our own destiny, our own purpose, among the free nations of the world.
Sooner or later it will happen. It remains to be seen if it will happen with the support of the United States, or against it. The United States certainly has become the most powerful empire the world has ever seen. Yet against the will of the Cosmos, that empire is like the grass on the field. And just as easily it can be swept away. As the Almighty once told the Pharaoh of Egypt. Let my people go. To fulfill their destiny. You have been granted the opportunity and the time-frame to transition PR toward National Sovereignty, Uncle Sam. Please do so. Amen.
