Echoes of Castro in America’s liberals
The death of Fidel Castro provides the opportunity to observe similar behaviors between the American left and Mr. Castro’s reign of terror. It is all about keeping power in order to achieve some small benefits to some of the people. Yes, Castro did create a country with great reading ability (better than ours), and he did give the people some health care. But those benefits were paid for by the poorest with no hope of getting out of poverty. They were paid for by the killing and imprisonment of all who thought anything contrary to what Castro thought. It was paid for by the grounding into pulp any cries from the people as to what they wanted to happen.
In our country, we have seen the leadership of a party in power control all discussion about a health care law and pound into the ground anyone who dared to raise even the smallest question about it. Representatives were told to pass it so they could find out what was in it. Well, we have found out what is in President Barack Obama’s law, and it isn’t good for most of us.
In our country, we have seen an education system that is not as good as Cuba’s in teaching reading but better than theirs in binding minds unquestioningly to the liberal left’s views. In our country, we have a party seek a recount of only three states under the guise of voters’ rights. Why not recount all the states, including those on the coasts? We have millions of dollars to be spent in this elite effort when they could be better spent building a factory in Mexico near the border so people don’t have to risk their lives and small wealth coming into our country illegally. But this will never be even thought of by these false justice brokers because their chief concern is not true welfare of others but dictatorial control of them.
In our country, those not standing during our anthem and those rioting to keep some false sense of power over their lives should take a trip to Little Havana in Florida and talk to the seniors there who fled Castro’s “care” and find out the truth of leaders who talk concern for others and act out concern only for their power.
