While listening to the speech below, I was struck by just how similar Cuba and Venezuela would be to the U.S.A. if Obama and the progressives had their way.
His remarks were to a group of progressive democrats who were completely duped by what they saw.
Why not, each of them share the same ideology as the so-called lands of paradise.
We have a serious chance of saving our Constitution and Republic if we set aside our differences and vote Republican in 2014, driving the progressive movement back it to the hole where it belongs.
An excellent place to begin would be at “Operation American Spring: Ret. Colonel Creates March On Washington, May 16, 2014” I’ve got my tickets and I’ll see you there.
Marco Rubio’s speech was about current events: the protests in Venezuela, the Maduro government and the ties it has with the Castros, who repress their own people and helped inspire the suppression in Caracas.

To Rubio, like many Cuban exiles and their descendants, it was too much to bear.
“Let me tell you what the Cubans are really good at,” Rubio said Monday when he took to the Senate floor. “What they are really good at is repression … They have exported repression in real-time, in our hemisphere, right now.”
This wasn’t some Cold War-era fulmination about Castro’s regime.

Venezuela is becoming the new Cuba.
