    Good thing is Trump doesn't have to win a state he lost last time. Democrats are the ones who have to flip states.

    Do you really think Sanders and his support of Castro is going to play well in Florida?

    Democrats keep looking at Trump when they really need to be focusing on themselves.

    Well damn, I guess by acknowledging this fact you just "indicted" yourself ... you must be a Nazi sympathizer, huh?

    I guess supporting Castro in 1985 isn’t newsworthy, but sexist or racist remarks in the 80s are.

    Actually, I think it’s other way around ... I know facts are not friends of conservatives, but you literally just made yourself an example of how stating a fact is not the same thing as showing support.

    I guess the only think better than the America dream of working hard, building a business, and succeeding in life, is just having government throw other people's money at you. Just ask Conservatives. They'll tell you.

    Older Cubans strongly tend to vote Republican. Younger Cubans are swing voters and although much less predictable than their parents and grandparents, thanks to Bernie's statements about Castro, Hugo Chavez, Nicolás Maduro, and Daniel Ortega there is a good chance that if Bernie is the Democratic nominee enough will swing Republican to give Trump a lock on Florida.

    This is why I joked that Rush Limbaugh should move to Cuba for the healthcare

    And definitely a solid shoutout to UF Latin American Studies! One of the best libraries around devoted to the field.

    Was I showing any more support for the Nazis than Bernie was for Castro? It's a fact that the Hitler youth instilled discipline in the kids as this was intentional. They were intended to be future soldiers. My point, since I have to spell it our for you, was that minor positives dont outweigh the multitude of negatives both leaders inflicted on their countries. Bernie is trying to say that there are some positives about the Cuban system, but the weight of the evidence says it's a very bad system. Just like you can come up with one or two positive things Trump has done but they are not worth mentioning in the face of all the negatives. Got it?

    I remember conservatives arguing here that public school education in America was ideological 'indoctrination'.

    There’s been all sorts of governments in central/south America and none of them have been particularly successful. At least in terms of fostering economic prosperity.
