Thread: Where can I escape?

  1. #1
    Each year I get to celebrate Independence Day twice. On June 30 I celebrate my independence day and on July 4 I celebrate America's. This year is special, because it marks the 40th anniversary of my independence.

    On June 30, 1968, I escaped Communist Cuba and a few months later I was in the United States to stay. That I happened to arrive in Richmond on Thanksgiving Day is just part of the story, but I digress.

    I've thought a lot about the anniversary this year. The election-year rhetoric has made me think a lot about Cuba and what transpired there. In the late 1950s, most Cubans thought Cuba needed a change, and they were right. So when a young leader came along, every Cuban was at least receptive.

    When the young leader spoke eloquently and passionately denounced the old system, the press fell in love with him. They never questioned who his friends were or what he really believed in. When he said he would help the farmers and the poor and bring free medical care and education to all, everyone followed. When he said he would bring justice and equality to all, everyone said "Praise the Lord." And when the young leader said, "I will be for change and I'll bring you change," everyone yelled, "Viva Fidel!"

    But nobody asked about the change, how he plans to bring the change, so by the time the executioner's guns went silent the people's guns had been taken away. By the time everyone was equal, they were equally poor, hungry, and oppressed. By the time everyone received their free education it was worth nothing. By the time the press noticed, it was too late, because they were now working for him. By the time the change was finally implemented Cuba had been knocked down a couple of notches to Third-World status. By the time the change was over more than a million people had taken to boats, rafts, and inner tubes. You can call those who made it ashore anywhere else in the world the most fortunate Cubans. And now I'm back to the beginning of my story.

    Tragically, history is repeating but in a different geography. I escaped for freedom, better life, & opportunities. I admired USA and respected the right it gave to each individual to make his destiny. I respected USA the right it gave each individual to be something without Government interference. I respected USA for incenting individuals who took financial risks to be successful, not to be penalized with hefty taxes and unneccessary Government spending. I respected USA.......

    Sadly I've been brought back to the darkest memories of my life. The scars and wounds of the past were healing with the time not only the same will be opened in future. I understood America to be intelligent. The super power that reign the world and preached the principles of Democracy has now taken the first step towards communism and socialism. Once the hangover is done, people will realize what they voted for. I hope and pray it is not too late by then.

    Those who don't have Cuban friends or family will never understand what coming years will bring you. The same promise of hope and change were made by Fidel and Hitler. It never brought any change, hope or prosperity. To the contrary, it only brought devastation and disaster. The term hope and change are not the same it used to be.

    I am getting too old to escape another Cuba. Where can I escape?

    I am thinking of going to Russia or Australia. Even Cuba will have more freedom than America in a couple of years. I can see Obama being like Hitler and purging millions of white people.

    Also there are many people considering moving to Alaska and seceding.

    The Freedom of Speech shall not be infringed. Even after that terrorist mass murdering monkey changes the 1st Amendment, I shall continue to express my opposition to his marxist socialist racist and anti-American ideology. I do not fear any government or terorist. Call them I do not fear them; I dare you X a million.

    Mike_2007 - Obama is not President yet. He is elected for the post but he is not until he takes his oath on Jan 20, 2009.

    Wow...didn't you say s.h.i.t about Bush? He is President. So if you are saying that any name calling to President is crime then you have committed crime as well.

    And yes, when you call FBI to report SOM, please tell them you have gleefully cheered innocent deaths of 9/11 and you think it was a hoax, no Muslim Terrorist were involved.
    If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans

    Democrats - Brave enough to KILL our unborn, just NOT our ENEMIES!
