“Sorry but yes there is. In capitalism you have free press, free travel, opposing political parties plus all the rights the constitution guarantees its citizens. In communism you are a property of the slave master...in Cuba, the Castro brothers.”

“Free press? Look at the Wikileaks case! Free travel? Try making a trip to Cuba! Learn to read instead of having Glen Beck do it for you!”

“Free press? Opposing political parties? Ever watch Fox for truth? Too bad!”

“Please educate yourself. There is no comparison. Americans ARE FREE. Cubans are subjects of a dictatorship state.”

“No, Mercedes, we are not free. Our personal liberties have been straitjacketed for years, and we are prevented from traveling to Cuba, the largest country in the Caribbean. Please note that we could travel to the U.S.S.R. (when Russia was Soviet), and every other Soviet bloc country, and today we can travel to China (which has a horrible human rights record) and North Korea as long as we apply for visas. It is one thing to have a travel advisory for my safety but quite another to have a law in place that prevents Americans from traveling to a country for ideological reasons. As an American who *should* be free, I resent it. And you should, too.”

“Mercedes, you are demonstrating your ignorance. Canada, Scandinavia, France, Germany, UK have much more freedom and a press with actual journalists reporting facts about the whole world. Come out of your cocoon!”

“Lets be fair. Cubans can not vacation in the USA or anywhere for that matter. A cuban citizen who can get a PERMIT from the Cuban government to reside in a foreign country, must go back after 11 months and spend a month in Cuba before he/she can go out again. If they stay over 11 months, they loose their possessions in Cuba and the right to go back. They will be considered expatriates.”

“Yes, I agree Cuba should lift the embargo it has on its people. They can not travel, there is no opposing political parties, no free press, etc, etc, etc. The list is too long to mention.”

“If we did it first there would be a huge influx of people and ideas and soon the whole Cuban government would crumble in fact its crumbling now. It is time to do it NOW.”
