Jan 4, 2013 Full story: The Montgomery Advertiser

My first trip to Cuba ended a few days ago. I thought I'd offer a couple of untutored observations.

It's about time America did something concerning their "grandfathers' vindictive mistake". American citizens are the only ones suffering from the inability to visit Cuba. Cuba has moved on, and is trading with the whole world for needed goods and services. When are you going to wake up and smell the flowers folks? Tell your elected officials to cancel the Embargo on Cuba, since it has gone past its, "best by", date.

Not in the numbers that correspond with the welfare and entitlement rolls we are funding
today, and that does NOT include all the illegals! If anything it is American culture and American way of life that is under attack. The bigotry and prejudice is FROM those who are supposed to be advocating for the poor and downtrodden. Liberalism under the guise of "helping" has in fact done more to hinder the progress of the less fortunate than advance them. Why? Because if there is no one to "help" there is no reason for THEM! Liberalism constantly stirs the pot of racism and bigotry in order to justify their existence. Liberalism looks at us from the standpoint of color, gender, nationality, etc. Always dividing us into groups. Not from the standpoint that we are ALL Americans. Liberalism does NOT believe that the individual is capable of providing for himself and be self reliant. Conservatism on the other hand looks at ALL of us as Americans and believes in the individual and their God given ability to provide for themselves through self reliance. That is when left to their own devices. Free of gov't interference and oppressive taxation can and will provide for themselves and their families. We did it LONG before liberalism started to convince us we couldn't! Ask those that lived through the REAL DEPRESSION! I know because everyone I've talked to, and there are fewer and fewer every year, told me there was a time when you were looked down upon if you took gov't handouts. People were proud and believed in THEMSELVES, and they survived! Liberalism steals the individualís sense of self worth and dignity. Liberalism has one believe the ONLY answer is gov't. That gov't is the answer to all their woes. Liberalism is socialism and socialism is predicated on everyone being a loser!
