Is Obama the right person to do it? Of course not, because he'll do it from a position of weakness rather than strength. But because something is being done by the wrong man for the job doesn't mean that the job itself is wrong.
So was Nixon treasonous for reaching out to China?
Obama will be gone in January 2017, all paranoid fantasies aside.
And exactly why do you want to visit a communist country? Are you planning on visiting North Korea also? Any money you spend in Cuba will support the Regime.
Regardless of the merits of Obama’s Cuba move - it’s certain that no actual new law will be signed. The set of existing laws (or as Obama calls them “laws”) that establish the embargo will just be ignored, while the Chicago King marches forward with memos and phone calls.
Uhh.... to see what its like? Why does anyone want to go to any foreign country? Some of us like to see how the other half live.
No, it’s not a red herring. So-called “state capitalism” is all over Marx’s writings. And if you think that private businesses operating in China are really private, think againChina has always assaulted trade secrets while giving lip service to their protection.
A dearth of subsidized medicine is interpreted as China being further along in the transition from socialism to communism, BTW. Even the 1936 USSR Constitution appropriated 1 Thessalonians 3:10 and twisted it into its “root principle of socialism” in Article 12.
Well you know what they say. Never get between a libertarian and his hookers and blow. Libertarianism is a theoretical construct that only works in a perfect world with perfect people. Do you know how to create a libertarian? Just take a conservative and remove all common sense.
Well, I've been to Nicaragua and found the people there delightful and friendly. Although like China, they're only nominally Communist. Plus, I like to make up my own mind.
Wow, just in time for the Jimrob to endorse Romney thread that just popped up.
Yep, and you are naïve to think that these Chicoms couldn't bankrupt us if they pulled a few financial strings. EPA and the olive branch to the Chicoms were his biggest mistakes.
And about your stupid comment about paranoid fantasies..... Go ahead and put your Obolo knee pads on. Most freepers here understand what this SOB is all about, and his intent to destroy this country. If you don't, that just adds another level of naivety that runs rampant in you.
Well, having lived under Big Government Conservatism as well as Big Government Liberalism, and seeing the wreckage both have strewn, can you blame me?
Evil is always a threat and must be vanquished. Zero tolerance is the right stance. Never surrender! Never tolerate communism! Never give an inch to the enemy!
The poltroon Johnny Kennedy botched the Bay of Pigs invasion and later caved to communism, resulting in the rogue state of Cuba lying within less than a hundred miles of Florida. A clear message must be sent to the world that America will never tolerate communist Cuba.
It really boils down to this. What would President Reagan do? We don't have to speculate for in 1982, he tightened sanctions and put teeth in the travel ban. It's a simple binary, black and white issue. Reagan was and is right. The criminal hussein was, is and will always be wrong.
China is not nominally communist.
They’re currently following the principle espoused by Khrushchev of allowing the capitalists to sell them the rope by which the capitalists will then be hung from. Never mind other principles set out in Sun Tzu’s treatise “The Art Of War”, which I suggest you read, and quickly.
There’s no such thing as big government conservatism. What you and all of us experienced is liberalism.
Care to propagandize a bit more for the enemy?
” I want one of Gullwing Mercedes Benz SLs that are there.”
I want a restorable 58-59 Corvette “fuelie”
Yes Nixon was, and liberals are the ones usually fond of the phrase “paranoid fantasies”.
Your tagline quotes from the the greatest president of the 20th Century, Ronald Wilson Reagan. On these two issues, why do you stand on the side of the evil hussein, who illegally occupies the White House and against Ronaldus Maximus?
Not really. Castro has rarely been seen in public for years and is too old to say much of anything. If he does have an opinion on this, no one is going to hear it except his nurse.
“Well you know what they say. Never get between a libertarian and his hookers and blow.”
” Libertarianism is a theoretical construct that only works in a perfect world with perfect people. “
Oh great, another million refuges on the public dole just set its wheels in action.
