An interesting development:

Cuban-Americans Favor End to Decades-Old Embargo

Quote:
The poll by Florida International University shows that — for the first time in the survey's 17-year-history — fifty-five percent of those asked said it is time to change a policy put in place by John F. Kennedy in 1962.
This is quite a reversal from the hardline approach of a few years ago that brought about the Helms-Burton Act.

Does our Cuba policy stand a chance of becoming sane again as the oldest generation of Florida Cubans dies off?

I wouldn't mind opening up trade and talks with Cuba. They aren't a threat to us. It may even be a good place to dump a few of our exports and Cuban born criminals.

The future of Cuba from a geopolitical libertarian perspective is currently in transition.
Once the tyrant Fidel finally kicks the bucket, increased trade would encourage economic reform much in the manner of how Hua Guofeng, Zhou Enlai, Deng Xiaoping and the Confucian capitalist roaders were able to remove the shackles of communism and create state capitalism.

I'm not Cuban, but I want it repealed.
