[EVENT] Almost Citizens: Puerto Rico Becomes a Self-Governing Commonwealth of the United States

711C.02/10โ€“952

The Acting Secretary of the Interior (Northrop) to the Secretary of State

Washington, October 9, 1952.

My Dear Mr. Secretary: I am pleased to report to you that with the establishment of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico on July 25, 1952, the people of Puerto Rico have attained a full measure of self-government, consistent with Puerto Ricoโ€™s status as a territory of the United States.

The establishment of the Commonwealth marks the culmination of a steady progression in the exercise of self-government initiated with the first organic act for Puerto Rico enacted by the Congress in 1900. That act provided for a governor appointed by the President of the United States, with the advice and consent of the Senate of the United States, a legislative assembly in which the lower house was elected but the upper house was composed of the heads of executive departments of the government and five other persons, all appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate; and a supreme court, the members of which were also appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate, justices of the lower courts being appointed by the governor with advice and consent of the upper house of the legislature. The act provided for Puerto Ricoโ€™s representation in the Congress by a popularly elected Resident Commissioner.

Puerto Rico has not become an independent nation; neither has it become a State of the Union. It remains a territory of the United States. The action of the Congress in authorizing and approving the constitution of the Commonwealth was taken under the constitutional power of the Congress to make needful rules and regulations respecting the territory of the United States. Puerto Ricoโ€™s foreign relations, like those of the other territories and, it may be added, like those of the States, will continue to be conducted by the United States.

However, with respect to internal government and administration, Puerto Rico occupies a unique position among the territories. By requesting the Congress to authorize the drafting and adoption of a constitution, Puerto Rico has voluntarily entered into the relationship with the United States which it has chosen to describe as a โ€œcommonwealthโ€ relationship. The term โ€œcommonwealthโ€ was adopted by Puerto Rico as the official English designation of the body politic created by the constitution (the official Spanish title is โ€œestado libre asociadoโ€), to define the status of that body

[EXPANSION] ACFS Integration Completed, Commonwealth of Puerto Rico Granted Protectorate Status

The Francophone regions of the Caribbean have now been brought firmly under the protection of the Commonwealth. Now the more difficult task of bureaucratic integration begins. Luckily, the creole speakers of the Lesser Antilles are a big help with translations of regional slang. The new Royal Governor-General of the ACFS hopes to have the two governments working seamlessly within the year.

Bringing the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (CPR) under CC protection is proving a unique challenge. The creole on the island is an English-Spanish mix that is proving deceptively challenging to learn. Due to the loose structure of Puerto Rican governance under La Alianza, the island's central government has little power allowing some local interests to dictate their own terms. Much slower going, the integration of the entire island into the CC system is not expected to be completed this year.

[CLAIM] Revolutionary Commonwealth of Puerto Rico

So I saw what was going on in PR and I wanted in.

With a declaration of independence, supported by many Puerto Ricans, the Independent Revolutionary Puerto Rican Peopleโ€™s Army (EPRI) has become one of America's biggest enemies. With many bombings, killings, and peaceful occupations happening on the island, no one can be sure what will come of this. If the USA wants to press its full advantage and outright invade Puerto Rico, then it will win, albeit while taking any pretense of civil rule out the window. Not much is known about the EPRI, but much will revealed in the coming days, weeks, and months.

My goals are as follow:

  1. Establish an independent PR
  2. Extend the Spanish language, and find allies immediately.
  3. Gain mass support from the Puerto Ricans, we must build a big tent to succeed!
  4. Build an army capable of antagonizing America, even if they invade fully.
  5. Rebuild the destroyed nation, and heal the social wounds of Puerto Rico

First time in Washington DC, found the Philippinesโ€™ Pillar @ the WWII memorial along side 55 others consisting of US States and territories. Thought about the what ifs if we didnโ€™t declare independence and retained our commonwealth status after the war just like Puerto Rico. Share your thoughts.
