A famous definition of stupidity is the act of repeating an act over and over again even though the results are always the same. In 1960, the American government initiated its program to overthrow the government of Fidel Castro. Heck, in 1961 they even sent in Cuban exiles who were promptly captured during the infamous Bay of Pigs fiasco. Reality is that the Castro family has been in control of Cuba for over seventy years. During this time period the American government has enforced sanctions upon Cuba in an effort to destroy its economy.
Well, after seventy years Cuba is still around. Cuba is still run by the Castro boys. So, what is the response of Republicans to President Obama’s decision to end sanctions? According to Marco Rubio and the others, the solution is to: IMPOSE SANCTIONS. Inform Marco and the anti-Castro guys that what they desire has been in effect for over seventy years, and the result:
NO CHANGE IN THE CUBAN government.
I realize evidence or reality has scant place among Republicans seeking the presidency. They prefer the domain of stupidity.
P.S. Pope Francis assisted the Obama administration to end sanctions.
