    (and this is Morgan, Roland's wife, in case I goof ^_^)...

    Puerto Ricans are already Americans, at least sort of.

    Per the Factbook, it's a commonwealth of the US, and their "chief of state" is "President George W. BUSH of the US."

    It's not like they come from another country. They don't need passports to enter the states. They can be, and were, drafted. They can vote for president if they live in one of the 50 states (and register and all).

    I say this as the wife of someone whose mother is Puerto Rican, who was just researching that side of his heritage.

      As most people on this blog.  But Puerto Rico still has its own flag and it was featured in the Jeb video.  That's all he meant to say, I think.

      Anyone living in NYC, definitely knows PR has its own flag and we are proud to display it =)

      extra fyi: in Puerto Rico both the United States flag and Puerto Rican flag are display side by side on all government buildings.
