With the resignation of Fidel Castro yesterday, I think it is high time for the United States to look at its policy toward Cuba. Our candidates for the presidency this year will be faced with hard questions.
What steps, if any, should be taken to normalize relations with Cuba?
When talking about illegal immigration, what should be done to end the hypocrisy of deporting some but not all -- the INS procedures that see Cubans caught asea trying to get to the U.S. turned back toward their island, but allowing those who manage to make it to U.S. soil to stay?
What positive lessons can the United States learn from Cuban government?
Our next president will have to decide what we are to do about our neighbor 90 miles south of Florida. With Fidel now out of power and his brother Raul, 76, now set to take charge of the nation, the socialist experiment might not be much longer for one of the last outposts of the Marxist dream...
But is the United States itself slipping ever closer to fascism and totalitarian rule?
And, as always, PLEASE let this make your mind turn on the subject... then let the rest of us know what YOUR thoughts are in the comments section below!
