Puerto Rico statehood vote benefits no one

So, what does 52% yes for statehood mean? First, it means that Puerto Ricans are divided, and are incapable of deciding in a matter in which one of the concerned parties, the United States, keeps silent. The statehood pyrrhic victory is unpresentable to the U.S. government because the 48% of Puerto Ricans that do not want to be a state of the Union will be noticeable. Coming down from a previous attempt to fool Congress, in which the pro-statehood movement claimed to have 97% approval for statehood from the people of Puerto Rico, this plebiscite, undoubtedly, does more harm than good for the statehood plea. Is the United States willing to admit as a state a territory in which half of its population does not want to join? Certainly not!
