Some Americans must find it odd to see Cubans protesting. Aren’t they thrilled with their “excellent free health care and education?”
The Cuban people, like all people, deserve liberty.

Unfortunately Socialism is now cool in some circles. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez praises “Democratic Socialism” and told comedian Stephen Colbert, “in a modern, moral and wealthy society, no person in America should be too poor to live.”
Colbert ate it up. “Seems pretty simple!” he replied, to cheers from his audience.
But socialism shouldn’t be cool, Gloria Alvarez reported recently, noting that it wrecks economies. In this video she points out that it also leads to government using force against its own citizens.
Regimes that call themselves socialist have killed millions of people. Tens of millions were killed in the USSR. Same in China. Millions also died in Cambodia and North Korea, which claimed to follow socialist ideals.
