Life not that great in the US for many Hispanic immigrants

”I hate Fidel Castro, but does that mean I should work in a cafeteria?” she said. “I am 44 years old, and the first and only time in my life I went hungry was in the United States. Here (in Cuba), I live in a four-bedroom house and have a car. Over there, I had to live in an apartment the size of a table.”

That was a brief excerpt from an article in the reactionary American paper, the Miami Herald… Some Cuban emigrants head back home

Yes, the fact of the matter is that life in the us is not that great for many, many Latin American immigrants, and they would be much happier if the US government would just stop fucking over their own home countries. That, of course, the US corporate elites that run the US will never, ever do. Their profits are dependent on running much of the rest of the world into the ground.

I just got back from visiting such a country, the country of Nicaragua, which the US has been destroying for many long decades. I will write more about what I saw and experienced in the weeks ahead, for Nicaragua is a prime example of why we must oppose the despicable bipartisan foreign policies of the US government. You might be planning to desperately vote for Barack Obama hoping for some sort of change towards decency? You are just being manipulated and deluding yourself if you think that the ‘defeat’ of the Republicans is all that is really necessary, for much more must be accomplished before change can come about.

Cuba is no absolute paradise, but compared to countries like Nicaragua it certainly is a paradise. At least the people do not have to live in squalor and misery even though the US has spent decades trying to break the people by waging an economic war on them. That is no small accomplishment!

Viva Cuba!
