Puerto Rico’s Moment in the Sun - NYTimes
The United States is overdue in re-engaging with this special place, which landed in our lap as a stepchild of imperialism in 1898, and which we have never seen clearly.

Al rojo vivo la batalla primarista - El Nuevo Dia
La primaria del 1 de junio se convierte este fin de semana en el centro de atracción de la contienda por la candidatura presidencial del Partido Demócrata con la llegada de los senadores Barack Obama y Hillary Clinton a la Isla, en búsqueda de los 55 delegados que elegirán los electores puertorriqueños ese día.

De paseo por Ponce - El Nuevo Dia
El gobernador del estado de Nuevo México, Bill Richardson, junto al ex gobernador Rafael Hernández Colón, recorrieron hoy varias calles del casco urbano de esta ciudad pidiendo a todo el que se encontraban a su paso que votaran por Barack Obama en las primarias demócratas del primero de junio.

Puerto Rico will not give Hillary the popular vote edge, from someone who actually lives in PR
Puertorrican politics are like latinamerican politics. You don't choose a party, you are born into one. We don’t root for our parties, we fight for them, we scream, we ruin family meetings talking politics. We like our candidate strong, with personality, we like them to hug us, kiss us, dance with us. We don't mind choosing women (we had a female governor), as long as they are strong women. If you are a nice guy, if you can't dole out the punishment, you are branded as a "mongo", literally a local slang that means flacid. The label mongo is a death.

Democrats adopt boisterous Puerto Rican style - AP
Forget placards, stoic bodyguards and formal rallies. To win Puerto Rico's presidential primary, both the Clinton and Obama camps are campaigning in the boisterous, face-to-face "boricua style" favored on this Caribbean island.

Impugna uso de fondos públicos para primaria
- PrimeraHora.com
La asignación de fondos públicos para la celebración de las primarias demócratas en Puerto Rico es inconstitucional porque no tendría “consecuencia legítima” alguna, ya que Barack Obama prácticamente alcanzó los delegados necesarios para obtener la nominación presidencial.

  1. Puerto Rico: Land of the Forgotten Americans
    Educating the American Voters
    Declaration of Independence
    Our most cherished American heritage is found in these profound words. “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” These promises included Puerto Ricans and ALL Citizens alike. Puerto Ricans have full USA citizenship and are NOT Foreign CITIZENS. This notion is not a legal term and is absurd to even be spoken by any intelligent person.
    The Constitution of the United States of America
    Amendment XV
    Section 1: The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude.
    Section 2: The Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
    Do the US Citizens of Puerto Rico have a Constitutional right to Vote? Are Puerto Ricans Citizens or NOT? If they are then what do we do about Amendment XV? Why has our Congress not solved this shameful dichotomy? We need to end this second class citizenship perception once and for all. In America WE ARE all EQUAL. VIVA USA!
