My dad's best man escaped back home. Preferable to him over the drudgery of working on the line in a Ford plant. Dumb move, financially, for sure. He probably would have been a millionaire had he stayed at Ford with all the goodies those guys used to get. My point is that there is more to the myth about "freedom" than meets the eye.<quoted text>
I've often wondered how the "escape" to Cuba worked out for those people. The poverty line there is much more obvious than it is here.
Don't get me wrong. Our country is GREAT compared to those countries, especially when you consider the fact that everybody in some of those countries is subject to some kind of surveillance and know everything you do. My point is that if you are a normal person, it's not so bad in most other places either. That includes Cuba.
