11. Cubans are not
free.. i don't know when you guys will get it.. at least in this country, we have the right to vote every four years.. they don't. Such a regime that inhibits basic human rights and freedoms is an offense to the human dignity of its people.

How Americans have used (or abused) our freedom to impose our selfish stand on other nations shouldn't be the standard for determining whether the Cuban people should be given their fair chance. IT is time to change. It has been more than 50 years. We must demand something from this country if we are going to give them what Castro is always seeking for, MONEY and power to continue oppresing the cuban people.

President Obama did today what President Clinton did in 1993, small steps that provided no consequences or change in communist Cuba. Castro didn't change anything then, and i am sure that if he is not pressured, won't change anything now.
