Three NPP gubernatorial candidates registered nationally as Republicans (Luis A. Ferré, Baltasar Corrada and Luis Fortuño) while three NPP gubernatorial candidates registered nationally as Democrats (Carlos Romero Barceló, Carlos Pesquera and Pedro Rosselló). The current Governor, Luis G. Fortuño, caucused with the Republicans when he was in Congress and serves as Puerto Rico's Republican National Committeeman, while Resident Commissioner Pedro Pierluisi is a Democrat.
This legislation is about the most blatant act to further disenfranchise – and mind you I never use that word ever – and actually perpetuates the discriminatory and ‘racial’ – treatment of Puertoricans. The liberals set up the system of dependency that will always make these people look like a bunch of lazy moochers who only want to get money from the federal government and don’t want to work. If the feds would stay the hell out of the Commonwealth and out of the states’ sovereignty and allow for free markets to flourish again then there would be no need to dump public funds into everything! The Progressive Party (Blue) hides behind the Republican shield while the Popular (People’s is the correct translation) Democratic Party (Red) fights for Commonwealth status to remain even though they are card-carrying FDR libs themselves, perhaps a notch above the progressive part but not by much. The independence party bears a green flag but I’m sure you’re not interested in that right now.
If this bill passes the economic situation on the island will spiral completely out of control and that’s just a breath away believe me, as scores of people are on the verge of being unemployed because of lack of government jobs, lack of industries that create real jobs and increasing cost of living! This is the final blow for America because as I reported before this is all an experiment and believe me, the stuff growing in that petri dish is oozing over the edge and spilling all over the place. It will travel faster than you think. Today, call your representative and stop a great injustice. Any of you Republicans in Congress voting for this atrocity will pay dearly as you are about to unleash great harm upon this great land.

Probably a star layout like this:
I could see a possible star design out of those stars, too. Arrange all the stars in to one huge star, that would be pretty cool. (I'm not artsy-fartsy enough to try it, though)
Edit: I just realized my 9-11 alternations there. That was not intentional, no conspiracy remarks needededit on 11/7/2012 by Nyiah because: (no reason given)
