    "Objective assessments"--by which you must surely mean that I'm not sufficiently ignorant to pretend the commie propaganda isn't complete bullshit.

    Like I said, don't take my word for it--I've never actually lived in Cuba (just may family)--oh, and happen to know (literally) thousands who had at some point, and for an uncannily familiar reason--like same damn reason for given for thousands of 'em--go figure--no longer live in what is, by all accounts, a geographic paradise.

    Now, why on earth does Man, by the hundreds of thousand--nay, by the millions--leave a veritible geographic paradise on earth???

    Never mind such spurious 'evidence'....clearly I am incapable of any objectivity on the matter...

    So go on sage WGB...tell us upon what you base your brilliant "objective" analysis on the matter???

    Since you obviously, objectively, haven't the balls to put your money where your mouth is, and go and live under that Utopian dream society, so geographically near you could literally take a homemade raft down there--as hundreds of thousands have actually done in reverse (never mind the hundreds of thousands who attempted, but failed--they don't count--not even for the lesson of what they stake by venturing out...b/c that of course, would obscure your precious pretense at "objectivity"), go ahead and tell us all about your 'objective' basis for your analysis, that doesn't require you actually delving into and submitting to the governance you so proudly champion.

    I'll wait for your learned reply.

    The problem is that if you ask any Cuban (in Cuba) their opinion of Castro, you will be standing next to a government minder, and if the person tells the truth, he might get sent to prison or worse. Communist countries are often like that.

    National Geographic had an interesting article about Cuban health care a few years back. Most Cuban doctors make so little money that they have to moonlight as taxi drivers. How good can medical care be in Cuba if the doctor needs to hurry back from taking a tourist to the airport in his taxi before starting your surgery? Someone should ask Bernie how much of his medical care he gets done in Cuba. I'm sure the Senate would pass a resolution allowing, or even encouraging, Sanders to use his Congressional health insurance in Cuba, and might even pay for him to fly there to get his medical care. It's probably too late to educate him in Cuba.

    Great you found one communist that Trump has praised in the past...

    There’s one thing that everyone Trump praises has in common... they all praise Trump...

    Cuba is just one plot point for Bernie... he’s had enough of a history to show us a trend... he’s a commie...

    Nice of you to avoid the other 90% of his post. When has Trump expressed "excitement" over a communist leader coming to power, when has he honeymooned in a Communist nation, when has he suggested we could take notes from Communist countries? That you have to mischaracterize the argument by omission shows you are beaten. Just accept it, Bernie has had definite Communist leanings (at least) in the past.

    We've discussed this enough for me to see its deeply personal to you, which I respect, but its not like I'm going to change your mind or not get called misguided by you when I post even the faintest of praise for aspects of Cuban society.

    Me, I'm waiting for Bernie to weigh in on Lenin and Stalin before I make a judgement.

    You’re asking for more than a smoking gun...

    there’s nothing Bernie can say that can convince you he’s a communist...

    Ask yourself if they’ve said nice things about Trump and you’ll have your answer...

    Also... try to stay on topic... we’re talking about Bernie...

    He should do it more than that. Tell Bernie to go back to where his Honeymoon was.

    I truly believe if Bernie gets the Dem nomination he is going to be destroyed by DT in the general election.

    Even CNN is piling it on, making Sanders feel the Bern of his own policies.

    Bernie Sanders' disastrous answer on '60 Minutes' - CNNPolitics

    It may actually be worse than the numbers quoted. Most of these assessments assume that the new policies will not change the behavior of people. Of course, when you make medical care free for all, a number of people will go to the doctor for trivial complaints or routine checkups, just because it is free. And that will not improve the economics on medical care. It would be very difficult to figure out how much behavior would be changed and how it would impact the bottom line.
    Sanders might be the only candidate that could get me to vote for Trump.

    Don't know too much about your politics...

    But you sound like a Liberal with an anchor (or just an anti-Trump conservative)...

    Good for you...

    He won't be destroyed. Too many in this country despise Trump for that to happen. But there's a pretty good chance Trump will win if it's Bernie.

    All those seemingly 'nice things' he did... and he only had to murder several thousands of people to do it. What a great trade-off... NOT.

    TBL, one of 2 things will happen when you post about Cuba--I will respond to set the record straight--or I'll miss your post, which I'm sure I've missed hundreds, as I'm not on here far more than I am.

    So take your chances if you must--but don't pretend at any surprise, when I chime in about what a POS Che Guevarra is, or how f@#$@!# abusive Castro's regime is, based on a stupid amount of actual second hand information in excruciating detail....

    Especially when for all the glorious light you insist on holding Cuba in....you will NEVER EVER have the balls to put your money where your mouth is, and go down there, and actually subject yourself to that patent tyranny. Wisely I should add.

    ...and it's perfectly OK that you don't want to, and would not surrender your autonomy.

    The problem is....why the hell do you want the rest of us to, under your precious neo-prog aspirations???

    No gracias.
