Fidel Castro’s resignation, due to health issues, of the presidency of Cuba brings new hope that this island paradise–real life human rights nightmare could possibly change into an economic powerhouse.
Cuba could become an incredibly hot real estate, development, gaming, entertainment, travel industry paradise if opened up to democractic economic principles. The acceptance of outside investors who would clamor for the opportunity to develop this paradise location could drive an economic renaissance of the type seen in Dubai right now. Cuba’s potential is as bright as it’s politics are dark.
Francis Ford Coppola’s Godfather series depicted Cuba as a cross between Hawaii and Las Vegas on the doorstep of economic boom and growth. History has painted a different story rooted in 50 years of socialist rule, shortages and hardships, a muzzling of free speech, and a general deterioration of civil rights the byproduct of dictatorship.
The question remains what kind of paradise of riches could the Cuban people thrive upon with real estate holdings developed, gaming empires created, tourism jaugernaut realized without a Fidel Castro or hangover of Castro-ism Cold War dictatorship?
2008 will go down as the turning point and most serious year in the history of the United States since Kennedy faced down Khrushchev’s WW3 challenge in the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. The election that is moving ever close brings with it the type of peril that can catapult us into the darkest chapter in American history or this election can become a history making break–away from the Republican “army” that we now suffer under.

Analyze the Points:
1. The Candidates are window dressing in this crisis–none of these people will have free reign to implement their policies
2. The Party Policies are the real debate and danger as the Republican and Democratic parties already have in place their strategies moving forward
Vote for Ideology:
1. A vote for the Republicans translates to a vote for continued never ending War in the Middle East justified on the premise of withdraw with honor and a unattainable win, Big Oil industry profit windfalls driven by gasoline manipulation and monopoly, and the continued drunken sailor spending that has our currency and monetary system weakened beyond immediate repair.
2. A vote for the Democrats translates to a vote for a shortened “cut-our” losses withdraw from the Middle East War zone of our creation, an absolutely absent plan for economic recovery framed by government controlling market crushing legislation (mortgage rate freeze), and an emphasis on “change” with absolutely no substance or strategies with which to change the course of economic peril the country is skidding out of control upon.
