Cuba - Glorious revolutionary people's state. (Yet, strangely, people have little say in the government and cannot freely leave the country)

Puerto Rico - Poverty stricken victim of American imperialism and racism. (People can freely leave and, if they wish, can either 1} Pay no federal income tax, or 2} Pay the tax, and vote. There are substantial numbers of Puerto Ricans in the U.S. Army, apparently willing to volunteer to fight for their 'oppressors')

Cuba - Has the superior system of communism, and the brilliant genius of Fidel. (GDP: $1,540)

Puerto Rico - Struggles under the exploitive system of capitalism. (GDP: 8,600)

Cuba - Peace loving state. (Except in Angola, Mozambique, Nicaragua, Grenada, etc.)

Puerto Rico - Toils under a miserable imperialism, bent on world domination. (Whose troops spend most of their time peace-keeping and in garrison.)

I am waiting for you to regale me with tales of desperate Puerto Ricans making for the Cuban shore, eagerly seeking all that wonderful health care. From the above economic figures, they are likely to have significantly better bribes than the locals. (Or did you actually think health care in a communist country was free?)

I'll take my three whacks, please.
