Castro, No! Cuba Exports, Yes!!!

It was bound to happen. Who exports a lot of food to Cuba?

U.S. farmers, that's who.

According to an AP story by Will Weissert, "Since December 1999, governors, senators and congressmen from at least 28 U.S. states have visited Cuba, most to talk trade."

Read the article. There are a lot of red state governors looking for a piece of the "more than $1.5 billion for American food and agricultural products..." A lot of blue state govs have gone, too; but the Republicans have "owned" the Miami Cuban expat vote for a long time.

Trade defeats communism. Economics defeats communism.

Isn't it time to look at facts (including the fact that Venezuela and China are increasing aid to Cuba) and end the boycott of our near neighbor?

Maybe Florida could benefit from a trade with Cuba. Maybe that trade would hasten the fall of the communist influence on the island.
