I pose this question so it will serve as a discussion regarding the governments running the two islands.
The US has “occupied” Puerto Rico since 1902 when we “acquired” it after we won the Spanish American war.
Fidel Castro has ran Cuba since January 1, 1959.
Who is better off, the Cuban people or the Puerto Rican people?
Would Puerto Ricans rather live in Cuba or would Cubans rather live in Puerto Rico. This does not mean that Cubans can come to the US mainland once they live in Puerto Rico. This discussion is solely about people native to the island. I am not talking about foreigners or exiles.
So, let this discussion be about the good and the bad regarding the US government and the Cuban government specifically as it relates to the people native to the islands.
Remember, Puerto Rico has no representation in the US Congress. It is simply a territory of the US. Cubans have free health care and other government subsides. The Puerto Ricans have personal freedoms. I would like to see comments about these and other differences.
