    Re: Majority of Americans Favor Ties With Cuba, Poll Finds

    I think most Americans couldn't even tell you why there's still an embargo at all anymore, which may sound like the usual slam against our terrible understanding of history, but isn't necessarily always such a bad thing. Part of what makes us unique is that we don't (usually) hold grudges going back to the Middle Ages. Our grudge with Cuba is obsolete as hell and needs to be swept under the rug. We've got bigger fish to fry.

    The embargo is absolute stupidity, especially when America trades and has ties with China who's human rights record is every bit as bad as Cubas, it's hypocrisy at it's finest and it's all about the politics of winning Florida electorally.

    Open your travel, your trade and your media to Cuba, you gain 12 million new consumers for your products and strengthen the forces of freedom by making them play by the same trading rules as everyone else because within 5 years you'd be their largest trading partner, with your products, your media and your people visiting the Islands beautiful resorts and their people visiting America you will break down the regime piece by piece and you'll never have to fire a shot.

    The only people that have anything in Cuba are Communist party members and the government itself. Everyone else is poor as dirt and totally beholden to the government.

    So how is that going to help our economy?

    I think you have that backwards. The embargo keeps out USA drugs and crime. When's the last time you heard of interdiction of a load of drugs from Cuba. Never! How the hell would travel restrictions keep travelling American people safe. Safer in Cuba than in the USA.

    Legally there is a difference. Had the Americans confiscated German property in the revolution that would the question you are asking.
