Luis, your opinion comes from reality and having lived the “school of hard knocks”, escaped it, and courageously started your life over. Years ago, I had a friend who, like you, saw what the rising socialism in Cuba was going to bring (as we say in Spanish, les vio las orejas al lobo) and had the courage to leave everything behind and get the hell out of there, because her liberty was more important than anything. She bore the ridicule and attacks from her family and friends at the time… and noted shortly after that she could observe from a place of freedom what happened to those who stayed behind. Kudos to you. The people in the U.S. who are espousing the same socialistic rhetoric and plans just don’t understand how they are participating in destroying what they have taken so for granted: their freedoms. I have always said, what you take for granted, you eventually lose… Thanks for posting your comment.
