Cuba should be a USA state for many reasons.

Cuban people must be American citizen by birth and, therefore, have the protection of the American constitution, if we ever want to see a prosperous Cuba and put an end to the political takeovers that have so plagued Cuban history.

To start with, throughout

Hello, Alain Fidel has some credits but he is not all that. He has a vision where he wants to go and he did take advantages of what the Communist System has offered, but unfortunately our Leaders did not from the Imperialism by following Castro footsteps, which are a mistake.

The time is now to come together as Konfrere.

Le Cuba sympathisant et le Haïti Été libre Associé des USA donne un commentaire :
La discrimination qui existe entre ce qui est cubain ou le haitien qui est des citoyens des USA et le haitien ou cubain qui n'est pas des citoyens des USA est énorme.

Quelques ils ont de la mobilité, d'autres n'ont pas de la mobilité.

I am very happy for him, because nobody puts him down. He steps down voluntary.

After nearly 50 years in power, he accomplished alot for the cubans people.For example, before Castro, Cuba was like a third world country, the people were without good education, without healthcare, the leaders were greedy like our leaders in Haiti.

taking the wealth of the country for their owns benefit.
