95. Chavez is a capitalist?
Right...all those state programs and land redistribution are sure-fire marks of a capitalist...or not.

Anyway, Cuba is very un-authoritarian. They have a better representative government than we do (NO cost to run for office, parties do not nominate candidates, etc...). It is very left-wing in both social and economic policies. To say Cuba is authoritarian is insane and mistaken.

The gunboat is still very much a threat. Did you miss the creation of an official post to topple the Cuban government? It may have misfired and taken on water, but it is not going away. Not by a long shot.
