Cuba is my birthplace but the United States has been my country and home for longer than many of you, I would guess, have been alive.
My family and friends have lived and died here.
My allegiances, past and future, are here.
It troubles me deeper than anyone can know to see my birthplace virtually destroyed in the name of socialism. Predictably, the parallels I see are the root of my concerns for the path we seem to have chosen here. Without mincing words, my hope is that we excoriate, and soon, any ideology that results in a similar fate. Namely, Liberalism.
The attached article is one of the very few I have seen from anyone, especially penned by an American, describing the truth. It's a bit of a long read and for some of my friends, another in a series of lies unveiling the perils of socialism.
But, regardless of what Michael Moore, Sean Penn and our liberal socialists say, the truth is much uglier.
A quote form the story I find particularly pertinent.
"Sure, Cubans get “free” health care and education, but as Cuban exile and Yale historian Carlos Eire says, “All slave owners need to keep their slaves healthy and ensure that they have the skills to perform their tasks.”
