Obama is making efforts to open the doors to relations with Cuba after 50+ years.

For years I’ve thought about what Cuba would become if the borders were opened up. Currently, there’s two million people solely reliant on a ruling class dictatorship, technological stuck in the past, and with no hope of a quality life.

Average monthly salary is between $17-$30 a month, and average pension is less than $10 a month. And for you #FeelTheBern types, only the elite have Internet access:

So with all this poverty and technological stagnation, why has the ruling class Castro family, with Fidel having an estimated $900 Million net worth, still in power?

To answer that, we have to ask what do the Cuban people blame for their poverty? The Castro Regime blames the U.S. because of it’s crippling sanctions. The average Cuban blames the U.S. as well:

And they are both right. Without the free flow of people, products, ideas, and labor, the Cuban people have been nothing but hostages on a giant island work camp. Completely reliant on a benevolent, extremely wealthy ruling class to provide each person with just the basics to exist. While the average person receives less than $1 a day in their slave wages, the elite Castro family has gained unimaginable wealth.

Once this Island is opened up, it will be like the Internet, or Bitcoin, or Uber. There will be no stopping the rapid advancement. The genie will be out of the bottle. The Cuban People will have opportunities to earn a living and indulge in all the pleasures of life the average American takes for granted.

At this point the Castro Regime will have no choice but to allow personal and economic freedom to its citizens just to stay in power. I’m happily optimistic it will be the beginning of the end for poverty in Cuba, and the end of the rule of the way less than 1% in Cuba. (What is 1 family divided by 2 million, anyway?)

Thanks a lot, Obama.

After every primary, social media explodes with sorrow and sadness. Our world is coming to an end and the signs are everywhere.

All the gains Ron Paul fought for are being engulfed in a sea of Trump nationalists and Bernie socialists.

I’m here to bring some sanity back to the Liberty movement. Trump and Hillary are both tyrants and neither will do a damn thing for human freedom, but they will drive people to discover libertarianism.

The worst circumstance for your freedom would be for a likable politician to gain the reins of power. I think back to Reagon and Clinton I:

Both loved by the establishment.

Both genuinely likeable people.

For all their expanses of government power, they both paid lip service to keeping government small. Even Clinton I said “The era of big government is over” at one point! Could you imagine a Democrat saying that today?! When top politicians pay lip service to smaller government, libertarian alternatives aren’t sought by independents.

However, under Bush II and Obama, all the lip service ended. Both were and are unabashed supporters of bigger government being the only solution. This directly lead to the Ron Paul movement starting after Bush II, and the current crop of libertarian minded people in Congress today like Justin Amash, Thomas Massie, and Rand Paul. Not to mention major cable news shows being handed to John Stossel, Kennedy, and Judge Napolitano. All of this was unimaginable before Bush II.

Whoever wins this thing will make things worse, but sometimes we have to take one step back in order to take two steps forward. The more war, debt, and prisoners the State creates, the more fed up people become.

Please share this with your depressed freedom loving friends! I’m pulling for you; we’re all in this together.
