Puerto Rico is a beautiful Caribbean paradise with warm sandy beaches and lucioush rainforests trapped between political ideologies. Puerto Ricans have Hispanic heritage and United States citizenship under the last north american colony. This particular political standpoint makes a very unique cultural blend from two clashing worlds.
A people politically divided into; those who want the island to become a state of the "Union". Those who want it to become an independent nation and those who for some strange reason want to keep living under colonized rule.
Being a cultural nation and a colonized country, Puerto Rico lacks the gobernability that a sovereign government would guarantee. The incapacity to make important desitions without the Federal Government's consent and the powerlessnes of not having representation in the government that rules it, are some of the main abstacles in the way of its progress. With a downsized agriculture to make way for industrial interest, Puerto Rico only produces about 15% of lts foodbasket. High crime rate, unemployment, domestic violence and school desertion also stain Puerto Rican modern society, but after all of that, at the end of the day, Puerto Rican tenacity always prevail.
