    To which I got no reply from Joe Castro.

    So I would like to apologize to my fellow posters, for posting something that was so pitiful and so illogical that it wasted another users time. Mods can you please send me to the Debating Hall of Shame.....

    It depends on the context, I don't remember what else was being said. There is a possibility that what you said was irrelevant, there is a possibility I missed it. But if you wish to discuss the Soviet Union, then by all means start a thread. I am always ready to discuss the Soviet Union in a rational manner. I will look forward to receiving your prompt, should it come.

    Thank you for highlighting rationalism in bold, a mere pleb like me might have missed that. Was my question about the Soviet Union and the former Eastern Bloc irrational?

    Secondly you can see the context of my question by reading pg 4-7 of the thread "Re: Scottish referendum Bill heads for defeat".

    You see, it is those kind of comments that normally drive me to deem a post or poster unworthy of my time. If you believe that, you must be drowning in self consciousness, a member of the exploitative class or just irrational.

    You have obviously never read the communist manifesto, the most basic, easily read piece of literature, or you haven't understood it, or you have not opened your eyes. Just have a thought to yourself about the essence of the IMF, the School of the Americas, the history of Cuba or Puerto Rico or the relationship between the modes of production and the division of labor, then get back to me.

    Ignorant? The ignorant one is the one who has no idea of the terms being talked about and their inherent essence, that certainly is not me.

    Anyway on behalf of the Spanish Health Care System I would like to thank Fidel for choosing to use Spanish health care over the wonderful Cuban Health System. It's good to know that when the President has a serious condition, he is willing to give up his spot in the Cuban system by getting treatment in Spain; so that others may reap the benefits of Cuban Health Care.

    I have given you an opportunity and invite to logically construct an opinion on the Soviet Union and challenge me with it. If you ever get round to it let me know.

    Impressive, you have turned the tables on me. Ok how about you actually answer my question that has been put on hold for such a long time.

    A quick question for you JOE. If cuba is such a great place to live then why do thousands of cubans risk there lives and thier kids lives every year by floating on rafts just on the chance that they might get to stay here in the US. Seems if it were realy as great as you say it was people would be leaving Florida on rafts to get to cuba dont you think?
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

    How is no elections, locking up dissenters, reeducating gays remotely in the interests of the people or not autocratic. It's funny that you mention China and Cuba as "victories for the Proletariat" with their abysmal human rights record.

    They just want to spread the word of the socialist paradise to America. Trust me, there are tons of people leaving the US in droves.

    The Soviet Union, where we make tanks, but we make no food. Excellent system to glory of worker!
