What Socialism Has Done To Cuba 

In brief, Cuba is yet another country where generations of citizens have suffered from the false promises of socialism. Long considered the “Jewel of the Caribbean”, Cuba has been left in the past.  Cuba’s capital, Havana, was once a prosperous city with beautiful homes, buildings, modern vehicles and happy people. Cuba had a Constitution that was highly praised and at par with the U.S. Constitution.  After fifty years of socialism under the authoritarian boot of Fidel Castro, only the ruling elite and their comrades live in beautiful homes, and the country’s roads are traveled by dilapidated vehicles built in the middle of the last century. Run-down homes, buildings and junker cars are the legacy of Cuban socialism, which survives only Cuba Nowthrough brutal and forced suppression of all political opposition.  The Cuban people are now enslaved, there is no freedom of expression, the regime has taken over all businesses and children are the property of the government.

 

 

 

  • Castro Is Now Issuing Demands On U.S. — Well Done, Mr. Obama

    Foreign Policy: Soon after President Obama announced plans to normalize relations with Cuba, Sen. Marco Rubio called him the worst negotiator since Jimmy Carter.

Cuba didn't have to make any concessions on freedom of speech, … [Read More...]

    The Cuban Embargo Was Never Meant To Cause Regime Change

    The more they say, the less you know. That seems to be the maxim behind President Obama’s latest foreign-policy move: his proposal to overturn the Cuba embargo and pursue full diplomatic relations for the first time since 1961. In the words of the official statement: “Decades of U.S. isolation of Cuba have failed to accomplish our objective of empowering Cuba to build an open and … [Read More...]

    Reports from Cuba: White flag to the regime in Havana?

    Those who advocate the elimination of the mechanisms of political pressure to which the Cuban government remains subject — I mean basically the United States Embargo and the Common European Position — often wield as a fundamental argument the alleged climate of reform undertaken by Raul Castro during the last few years. One can suppose that this oversized expectation had its roots in … [Read More...]

    What Would JFK Have Done?

    My stepmom rushed into the kitchen to find me hiding under the table. “Why are you under there?” she asked. I don’t remember my exact answer, but she put it together quickly enough, considering the news on our black and white television; nuclear missiles were in Cuba, aimed at my home, and I was afraid…very afraid. I do remember her response, however. She laughed slightly, but her face then … [Read More...]

    THE COMMUNIST DICTATOR OF CUBA

    Fidel Castro entered Havana on January 8, 1959, to wild acclaim from all quarters. Most Cubans were jubilant; Castro was promising an end to the corrupt governments that had plagued Cuba since independence. Far from any Communism, Castro was promising a revolution "as green as Cuba's palm trees!" with national elections in three months. Private property would be secure, a free press guaranteed, … [Read More...]

    INDOCTRINATION OF CHILDREN IN CUBA AND OPERATION PETER PAN

    "Common Core" is the same educational system the communist regime of Fidel Castro imposed in Cuba in the early 1960s.  It is the norm in all totalitarian communist regimes.  Each child will have a file from birth to death with all his information, including his conduct, his friends and his parents.  Based on that information depends what he would be studying, what kind of job he will be assigned, … [Read More...]

    The Illusion of Cuban Reform: Castro Strikes Out

But however the transition from the Castro era plays out, one outcome is off the table: that Raúl … [Read More...]

    U.S. embargo of Cuba is necessary

There was complete silence, only the splashing of waves against the ship could be heard. Our D-Day had arrived! I was reminiscing and recalling that less than a month before my brother, Jorge, and I were students at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia. When the winter quarter ended … [Read More...]

    Obama´s Road to Socialism

    This experience changed my life forever and that of my entire family. I saw how we, in Cuba, ignored the warnings that Fidel Castro and many of his followers were communist. Most people believed in Fidel Castro’s promises to have free elections, respect individual freedoms, and establish a democratic government. Instead, we have had a bloody dictatorship for almost 54 years in a country 90 miles … [Read More...]
