Thousands of Cubans are in the streets protesting communism in Cuba.  Yet I bet you guys haven't heard anything about it.  CNN has a byline that says "rare" protests in Cuba.  The reason they are rare is that you risk your life protesting in Cuba.  It's a tiny byline story.  Yet the left in this country views socialism and communism as the preferred systems.  Barry Sanders who has praised Cuba is strangely silent right now.  Another leftist hypocrite.  This country is not the country my son, my dad, my grandfather, and I fought and bled for.  I wish none of us had served.

We have tens of thousands, maybe millions, of people living in America who think socialism is great and vote accordingly. The unrest in Cuba will be ignored by these fools and their misguided position will be ignored at best or at worst supported by the liberal media and maybe Biden's bureaucrats.

I believe most citizens have never experienced socialism or communism outside of a book or some sort of media. Our public education system continues to dumb down the youth of America. All this fits with the democrat socialist drive to dump our Constitution, eliminate capitalism, remove God from our society and move the Nation into their supposed socialist paradise. What they don't seem to appreciate is the next step in that journey is communism.

I've done business in the USSR, China, Indonesia, Sweden and parts of South America. In all my activities I never experienced one area in which the socialist or communist paradise was superior to our capitalist system.

Home schooling may be a partial answer to our propaganda mills. A better one would be parental guidance assuming those adults have not been totally corrupted by the lure of free stuff. Free stuff is the evil that buys votes and corrupts minds. We have gotten soft and, if we are not careful, we will fall like the great civilizations of the past.

It's sad but inevitable unless we commit to electing representatives who want to keep America great. I don't believe we have enough of them in office today. Therefore, we are on the wrong track and our Nation is in peril. We won't fail tomorrow or next year of in this decade. But we will unless our citizens grow a pair and understand free stuff does not a great Nation or good life make.

If they doubt that they should ask the folks protesting in Cuba!

I watched it unfold last night. Sadly not 1 peep from Bernie Sanders (not Barry), AOC, Talib Talib or any other socialist - communist in the USA. Sad to see the little boy yesterday stop and deface the flag whilst his Mom watched on. It saddens me to say our country is lost for the foreseeable future. More US citizens know who is on "Survivor" or The Bachelor" than know about communism. The Cuban protestors are being rounded up now, likely to never be seen again, much like Hong Kong.

I would sadly predict we will be socialist within 10 years.

While I'm sharing or ranting, depends on your perspective, my wife just returned from a couple of our grocery stores on the island. We have 5 major chain grocery stores for a community of about 20,000 residents. The tourist season is back and demand picks up quite a bit. So they are busier than normal.

She said the shelves look like she's trying to shop in Russia. She's been there once, about 2 years ago, but has seen clips of the old USSR and has heard tales from me. We have lived her for over 20 years and, outside of a hurricane, never experienced any type of shortage.

My view is it has been created by liberal governors who shut down their states due to the covid scare. The issue has transcended toilet paper into food needed to sustain a family. If this is occurring across our Nation, our citizens will be getting a taste of a socialist paradise.

The blame will fall on Trump or big business or any vehicle except the liberal policies that created it. Democrat socialism, given time and an ignorant public, will destroy our Republic.

I would agree. My wife and I are stockpiling everything we can. We also bought an additional freezer last year and it's stocked. I keep the cars on full tank at all times. I routinely purchase ammo and surprisingly it seems to be coming down in price. I am now working on a design for a solar powered generator for my home. Anything you cam afford to purchase or store I recommend doing so.

You are a bit late on your prediction, they are already blaming Trump for this.

I've been stockpiling guitars for years, just in case.

You don't hear much about this anymore but I did read where the Biden administration refuses entry today by a small raft of Cuban refugees. I feel truly bad for them when they return home.
