Petition to POTUS to normalize relations with Rep. of Cuba
This can happen now. The Latino vote came in for Obama big time and most of
them would positively view normalizing relations with Cuba (not the right wing conservative
old Cuban-Americans) but everyone else in the Latino bloc would. I am an expat Mexican-American (living in China!) but I believe my constituency takes a softer line on the Cuban Revolution because of our own 1910 Mexican Revolution. My dad did.
The petition on the We The People page on whitehouse.gov is here
If the petition gets 25,000 signatures by Dec 14, it goes to the President's desk, if it goes viral, the White House has to make a public statement. Let's make Obama do something we want and end the 60 year old failed Cold War policy that has only impoverished the Cuban people. Let tourists go, let farmers and businesses sell, let ports, airports, airlines and the travel agency hire new workers for this new market. Tear the wall down, we can make Obama do this in his 2nd term now that he has no excuse not to.
Thank you DU, forward it on, make it go viral.
