Defying the will of the people in such a continuing arrogant corrupt way will force Rossello out of Puerto Rico as well as out of office!

Rossello’s arrogance and bigotry also reportedly included an apparent death threat made by Rosselló against Mayor of San Juan Carmen Yulín - his behaviors similar to the orange bigot/racists.who has earned a similar popular uprising that has not materialized in the ways necessary as the people of PR have done so well. We should take a lesson from the people of PR, but we are still too comfortable in our wage/debt and interest slavery; fed a steady diet of lies and deceit by government, great wealth, and their corrupt complicit media…

The treatment of PR’s people with utter contempt, as if their lives didn’t matter, especially after the hurricane, vividly showed the level of contempt, racism, and colonial slavery still being endured in PR, while some profit and live high on the hog.

If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine.

We should all be paying attention to the people of Puerto Rico, who are showing us how it is done. They have had enough. Their ‘Revolution in the Streets’ has gotten rid of most of the criminals running THEIR country, they are emboldened by their success and they understand that it is just a matter of time until their ‘pretender-in-chief’ is gone. The list of Trump’s reprehensible criminal co-conspirators who have already fled is long. We need to follow PR’s lead and finish the job. Relying on the election may remove the despot from office, but it will NOT restore our democracy. That requires a massive, public, grassroots uprising and revolution. It requires the complete overthrow of the old corporate-controlled system and both political parties supporting it. There is no way in HELL to grow a new, viable, life sustaining social/political system in the same old infected and depleted soil.

I was thinking that as well. We could start a fund to provide plane tickets.
Trump would call them refugees, and not allow them into their own nation.
