There’s been some chatter about statehood as the GOP candidates look to Puerto Rico. Rick Santorum says Puerto Rico could get statehood but they need to make English their first language while Mitt Romney says English wouldn’t need to be a priority.
To me the solution is simple. We need to treat our states like an NFL roster. We say that we’re limited to 50 states in in the Union and if we want to bring on another state someone’s going to have to be cut from the roster and as with the NFL we’ll need to cut the most overpaid, lazy, arrogant player on the team. If Puerto Rico looks like it has it’s sh*t together more than, oh let’s say just as a hypothetical, CALIFORNIA!, then maybe we should think about shaking up the roster.
To think I do this for free.
