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.

    Downtown Old Havana, just blocks from the capitol Neill Blomkamp’s 2013 science-fiction film Elysium, starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, takes place in Los Angeles, circa 2154. The wealthy have moved into an orbiting luxury satellite—the Elysium of the title—while the wretched majority of humans remain in squalor on Earth.

    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

    The 2006 succession from Fidel Castro to his brother Raúl, programmed since the early days of the Cuban revolution, was efficient, effective, and seamless. The eighty-two-year-old Raúl, who recently announced that he will step down in 2018, is now orchestrating his own succession behind the scenes. 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

    U.S. embargo is necessary At this time, when the democratic opposition within Cuba is acquiring greater strength and showing extraordinary political maturity, I believe it is important to remember the reasons for the existence of the U.S. embargo and the three conditions for its lifting.When I arrived in the U.S. Congress in January 1993, I was able to confirm that U.S. law did not prohibit trade … [Read More...]

    My longest day: April 17, 1961

    Shortly after midnight, our ship, the Houston, an old liberty type vessel, entered the Bay of Pigs on April 17, 1961. 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...]

    Hagel’s Cuba problem

    Much of the focus on Chuck Hagel’s record has been on his views on Israel, Iran and sequestration. Equally troubling to those who have taken a forceful stand against Castro’s dictatorship in Cuba, however, has been his dismissive attitude toward the Castros  and his enthusiasm to end the U.S. embargo with no quid pro quo. Cuban dictator Fidel Castro (Javier Galeano/Associated Press) Sen. … [Read More...]

    Obama’s Vision for Cuba Turns a Blind Eye Towards History

    During a recent trip to Key West, I was fortunate to snap a couple of pics of the old Cuban embassy that was recently restored after it was severely damaged in a fire several years back.  While appreciating the embassy’s historical value, I began to think about the extent of how much Cuba-U.S relations have suffered since the beginning of Fidel Castro’s repressive regime. Today, the … [Read More...]
