I just hope that the Cuban people will continue to enjoy free excellent healthcare, world class education and social wellfare benefits.

Cuban people aren't rich but we don't want Cuba to become like the US where there's a huge gap between rich and poor and most wealth is owned by 1% of the population. Neither do we want to see shopping cart people going dumpsterdiving for food and dying on the street because they can't afford healthcare.

Support socialism. Avoid capitalism.

I hope that Obama first thinks of the Cuban people and not off his political ambitions.

The US empire is slowly dying away, it won't happen overnight but like all corrupt and decadent system it will eat itself out and will come to an end. I'm not proud to having been born there.

Paul Craig Roberts-US Government Most Corrupt on Earth

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRrNs4mlHMA

On the teetering economy and possible economic collapse, former Assistant Treasury Secretary Dr. Paul Craig Roberts says, “We know something serious is wrong. The only provision of Dodd-Frank that has any teeth is the provision that says if the big banks are going to be casinos and gamble on derivatives, they cannot do that in the depository institution where depositors have their accounts. They have to farm it out into subsidiaries. So, if the subsidiaries get into trouble, the subsidiaries have no access to depositor’s money. This is the only real reform part of Dodd-Frank. Citigroup got put into the recent spending bill, the repeal of this, so banks can gamble on derivatives, and taxpayers and depositors are on the hook for the losses. Why would you do that unless you had a lot of derivatives trouble. It could easily be the oil derivatives. . . . The banks can gamble all they want and they are covered by the FDIC, which has no money. . . . This gives the banks access to depositor’s money. . . . This is sick, and it shows the United States government is the most corrupt government on earth, far more corrupt than Russia or China.”
