I was hopeful, then I listened...

I was hopeful and pleased the first few podcasts. I did noticed no experts are interviewed to argue any given point but I did not mind it. Then I listen how the plebiscite results of 2017 were referred to as “laughable”. Hard Stop here. The plebiscite options were authorized by the US Justice Dept. The Statehood option won overwhelmingly. Yes, it would not have been overwhelming or perhaps not even a victory had the colonial party not decide to boycott it. But you see, here is where Mr. Mercado-Vazquez needs to be educated in that in a democracy only the votes of those who actually voted count. Do we wish everybody had expressed their opinion? Of course we do. Did the party in power at the time pulled out of thin air the options that were voted on? No they did not, they were authorized by the JD.None the less, I appreciate the effort and time commitment. However, in the era of “alternative facts” one has to point out this sort of “alternative fact” wherever we see them presented as facts.

¡Gracias!

Su podcast es muy informativo. ¿Ha pensado desarrollar un podcast con la misma información de una manera mas simplificada? ¿O al menos en español? Me parece que esta información motivaría a muchos puertorriqueños viviendo en los estados americanos a ejercer su voto para crear un empuje hacia resolver el estatus político de Puerto Rico. La verdad es que tuve que volver atrás en la grabación para entender el material. Podría ser un reto, pero pienso que el mensaje llegaría a mas personas.

Getting educated, ready, and funded

As an isolated PR here in the NC, I’m surrounded with the best academics but no one coming from our perspective. Keep these coming!
