Political and religious commentary from a liberal, secular, humanistic perspective.
We love our former Cuban refugee who escaped from Cuba and Castro years before Castro took over Cuba. That kind of family ability to predict the future so they could leave so far in advance means we need Rubio Junior in our government. He seems to want the US to go back to what he was born into and his dad liked enough to stay in Cuba for many years...under Batista, the former dictator, before the revolution and Castro. Life in Cuba was very uncertain then. Murder and long term imprisonment were the norm, unless you had no money to pay bribes for protection. The wealthy helped bring in the American mob and Meyer Lansky to assist Batista and his wealthy friends in stabilizing their form of government. Apparently it was heaven if you were rich enough to pay off the bad guys and kept your mouth shut. Many Cubans left for the States too avoid the bad times. After Castro’s revolution, Castro installed the Communist version of a dictatorship, with Russia as his protector. Russia was much stronger internationally and the Cubans suffered from then on due to a far more sophisticated form of government control, acceptable to established and strong countries that could live with a small weak Cuba kept alive by Russia, which gained a foothold 90 miles from the USA. Europeans and Americans had learned to live with dictatorships as long as they did not engage in open war.Rubio manages to vote against anything that gives power to the less wealthy in the USA. The wealthy back him and hope he can bring back the kind of government by the 1% they enjoyed in Cuba, as long as they do not plan to return to Cuba. See below and check out what he has voted for and against since he became involved in government. He likes the Conservatives as long as he can join them. Living high on the hog has its privileges, he and his father have learned.
I've said it many times, I'll say it many more times- this is what's become of the party of Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, and Eisenhower?I don't include Reagan in that lot- the man's deification by the current brand of the GOP is disturbing to say the least.
