- Why is Puerto Rico not a state? Votes Democratic?
Basically yes; same reason DC is disenfranchised. Republicans have been blocking it since before I was born. We need a clean sweep to remove the Republicans from power in both houses of Congress and the Presidency before we can straighten out this undemocratic garbage. Of course, the Republican Party leadership fundamentally opposes democracy; this is uncontroversial and at this point actually in their party platform.
