1. RE:"... who fought for Castro who was a Communist"

Lots of good Cubans supported Castro in the battle to unseat Bautista. Only after the revolution, when revolutionaries (Che Guevara in particular) started to imprison and execute their fellow citizens did they become disillusioned with Castro.

3. We in Canada can't wait for the USA to open trade with Cuba. It will become a free democracy a few

years after that.

4. You're preaching to the converted

The embargo should have been abandoned after communism fell in the Soviet Union.

6. Yup. As it stands now they get lots of investment from Canada and tourists too. But they

would be a rich mixed market economy rich now if the USA had dropped the embargo when you say. USA is losing lots of opportunity. Canadians have invested in spanish galleon treasure hunting in Cuba because they were the last place in the West that started looking for ships. Cuban Americans would have lots of US $$$ backing them if they were to invest in business back home. There would be such opportunity. A win win for all. And this time do it right.....build a middle class.

5. Is Ted Cruz a US citizen?

Surely FreedomWorks (now with Fake Panda Porn) wouldn't have supported him without seeing his Birth Certificate. Uh, right?

7. Now Only That But the Long Form

And is he in the country legally, or is he an illegal immigrant. Is he really an American citizen?
