OBAMA: US CAN LEARN ABOUT HUMAN RIGHTS FROM CUBA
Does Cuba have something to teach us about human rights? Considering Obama and Castro’s attitude toward the rights protected by our Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, Freedom of the Press and the Right to Bear Arms, not to mention the Right to Compulsory Insurance, you can see why Obama would find the Communist dictatorship inspiring.
“President Castro, I think, has pointed out that it, in his view making sure that everybody is getting a decent education or health care, has basic security in old age, that those things are human rights as well.”
“The goal of the human rights dialogue is not for the United States to dictate to Cuba how to govern themselves,” Obama continued. “Hopefully, we can learn from each other.”
Cuban health care is quite impressive. And by “impressive”, I mean that it’s a good way to die. It also depends on a population of plantation doctors who are leased as slave labor to other countries.
Then there is the real Cuban system, the one that ordinary people must use — and it is wretched. Testimony and documentation on the subject are vast. Hospitals and clinics are crumbling. Conditions are so unsanitary, patients may be better off at home, whatever home is.
