Save Puerto Rico by Setting the Island Free!
By Veronique de Rugy and Tad DeHaven 

*** begin quote ***

There’s an old saying about raising children that “healthy birds fly away from the nest.” Applying this concept to territories of the United States, it may be time to consider setting a timetable for Puerto Rican independence as part of any effort by federal policymakers to help the beleaguered island regain its financial health.

It’s time to set free the USA’s “colonies” — Puerto Rico, Guam, Hawaii, Alaska, and anybody else.

Puerto Rico’s problems are partly of their own doing and partly Washington’s.

And, the débâcle will continue.

Give PR a fresh start and let them find their own way.

We’ll all be better off. 

The USA can’t afford the luxury of “high living” off the backs of the Taxpayer class.

Argh!
