I bet not a one of the Cubans in Miami voted for Obama. They haven't voted Democrat since John Kennedy. Hopefully that bunch will soon die off but they sure like to keep the hate stirred up.

How dare ANYONE tell me where I can and cannot travel. Just because a bunch of banana republic Miami Cubanos throw a hissy fit, politicians line up to kiss their behind.

It is un-American to prohibit my free travel to wherever I want to go. Heck, I can travel to China, to Vietnam...but Cuba--no.

Just stop it. Stop denying me my right as an American.

Bastards.

You might feel differently if your family business had been stolen or your personal property stolen by Fidel. Any money or travel to Cuba keeps the crooks in power. You do a disservice to the thousands who have suffered human rights abuses under Fidel. But, hey, you want to travel, so why should little things like human rights, rule of law and freedom stand in your way. Selfish, b-tard.

If you are talking human rights, then you can't travel to many places in the Middle East or Africa.

As far as "stealing" property, don't go to Texas or Arizona, they were "stolen" by the United States.

By spending money in Cuba, things might open up a little more.

The current decades-long policy has not worked.

Cause it's easier to whine and complain from somewhere safe.

These so called 'patriots' are really called cowards.

Plus, the whole Cuba thing is getting really tired.

The Miami Cubans have NOTHING to do with Americans, they don't care about your American rights, they make their own laws, speak only Spanish and think they can take over everything.

Once they floated over here on their little rafts, they assumed it was their land and THEY make the rules, not Americans.

Blah, Blah Blah
If it meant anything they should have banned together and fought for their property.

They are rude and inconsiderate people - all of them. GO BACK forever.

Who are these 57% that back the 45 year old embargoe? No one goes to Cuba to see Fidel, they go for their families, the atmosphere, the food, etc. The Old Cuban Guard in Miami is almost dead and still America has it's back turned on the island 90 miles south of Florida. Time to wake up and admit that ignoring Fidel only made him stronger.

Perhaps, but why give in to him? Why play into his game? If we really want to bring down the embargo, it's got tyo be under our terms! If he does not agree, either continue the status quo or do to him what we did to saddam!

The fact that we haven't been able to travel or transact business with Cuba for nearly 50 while the crooks have remained in power seemingly disproves your statement that "money or travel to Cuba keeps the crooks in power." Don't you think? Further this bit about human rights seems a little self-righteous. If you really cared about the people of Cuba, it would seem only logical that you would want to help them through this terrible mess. Rather, you are promoting continued abandonment of them and even worse continuing with a policy that intends to make their suffering all the worse. If I were you, I would be more care before I called someone else a selfish bastard.

I guess we should stop visiting Washington, D.C. as well.

Cuba does not need the U.S. Every other country in the world feeds Fidel's hungry people. U.S. should stand for more than $s.It's funny how you wimps complain about U.S. It's like the people in WWII who said Hitler wasn't our problem. O.K. Go ahead and stick your head in the sand, b-tard.

<quoted text>
Liberals and Anti-American will always find and excuse to do as they wish. They contradict themselves in many subjects, Gitmo, Traveling freely to Cuba a country who has 11 million people in slavery for 50 years......but just to find their ways they will do anything. The Embargo will be lifted little by little, just yesterday Congress is working in a Law to do business with Cuba and Traveling freely by american citizens. So the Embargo will not be a Taboo anymore for Castro to free his citizens and give them the rights lost for 50 years. I can say as a Cuban- American...nothing will be adchieve with the Castro family in Power and the cubans in Cuba and their Liberties..........Only will make stronger Goverment and richer. But Democrats have always try to be friends with the Castros..as cubans says...QUIEREN CALDO ??? LE DARAN TRES TAZAS....translate:' Want soup .? castro will give us three bowls."""
