Puerto Rico doesn’t want U.S., and it doesn’t deserve its bailout

I’m upset with Puerto Rico. They’ve been a U.S. territory since 1898 and a commonwealth of the U.S. since 1952, giving Puerto Ricans naturalized U.S. citizenship, but have refused to become a full U.S. state many times. Now they’re asking for a bankruptcy bailout from U.S. taxpayers!

NO. I say drop them altogether and let their welfare ties to the U.S. stop, period.

They don’t want America, only its money.
