Many Cubans like myself feel that to replace Castro with a typical corrupt if not purely self serving Miami/Hialeah politco is no better than Fidel so after living outside of Fidels grasp in Miami we realize how politically corrupt we are.

We were a political disaster in Cuba as we are here and this is why it matters not if Castro is replaced or not as the Cuban political corruption will continue.

'Elena Diaz, a Cuban-American whose parents immigrated to Miami when she was a baby says,'This is the way it was in Cuba before Fidel Castro. I heard my parents talk about it that country was so corrupt. Corruption's what actually destroyed it and now they're doing the same thing here.'

Soy puro cubano and the anti-American separatist scumbags are your ilk, you have "thanked" USA for saving your lives with this behaviour-

"The Cuban community that doesn’t care about corruption when it casts its vote was critically portrayed by most leading city columnists and others, Cuban and otherwise. Robert Steinback, a Black Miami Herald columnist, said the Cuban community is gullible. Liz Balmaseda calls it “a knee-jerk majority” that would elect a hamster wearing a Cuba Libre T-shirt, and,“They only cared that he was Cuban.”

You are full of separatist hate for this country.

The late Jorge Mas Canosa, the undeniably powerful founder of the right-wing Cuban American National Foundation, was a major force in setting in motion the infiltration of these problems into the fabric of South Florida government and exile persuasion. His company, Church & Tower (which was under investigation in a $3.9 million road-paving scandal with the county water and waste department), and his political foundation successfully put pressure on virtually every level of government to obtain not only business, but to advance the separatist objective of its leader—his return to Havana, post Castro. One of Mas Canosa’s most profound statements against assimilation of the Cuban-exile culture into the American tradition of cooperative ethnic heritage was made in a 1992 interview with The Miami Herald:

“I have never assimilated. I never intend to. I am a Cuban first. I live here only as an extension of Cuba.”
