GOD Fearing Rican's...

" No imperial designs lurk in the American mind. They are alien to American Sentiment, thought and purpose." Alien to American sentiment!!! Now as these soilder march along the coast, and into the cities of Puerto Rico they dont Plan to eat the children of these god fearing people! NOooooo.....they've only come to take away their government, and their livellihood. "our military forces have come to occupy your preety little garden. The first effect of this occupation is the severance of your former easy manner of eanring a liveihoodand the establishment of our capatilists. The sole object of our presence will b eto overthrow all your old and time-honered customs,..." NoooooooooOOoooo..... Of course America is anti-imperlist nation..... Even though the plan was to take over Puerto Rico over, the plan was simply for our nation to take over this smaller nation economically, socially, and politically. So Those Puerto Ricans had one thing to do. Hold on to all they could grab.... and watch as our good nation showers this little nation with their imperalist blessings!!!!!

A very strong reaction to this document.

This is a satire of American intentions written by a Puerto Rican intellectual. What does it tell us about the attitude of the occupied population towards the U.S. at the time? Many of the Puerto Rican elite welcomed the American intervention. Some like this writer feared for the independence of Puerto Rico under American occupation.
