I just listened to Obama announce his new direction for relations with Cuba. Now, Sen. Rubio of Florida is currently speaking out against these announcements, calling them nothing but “concessions for oppression”. I can’t argue with him, and think his words about the rights afforded us by the founding documents were quite stirring. Like so many others, his family came to the United States in order to flee the harsh rule of the Castro regime, and many Cuban Americans who have a grasp of what life was like under communism are understandably not going to be too happy about the fact that suddenly it seems like U.S. is dismissing all the years of fighting and resisting that system.
Overall, I think this represents a watershed moment for sure, but perhaps not the type of one that many people might think. I believe in the end this move was inevitable, and really only a single step in the larger push towards creating a “unified” North America, which of course is itself only a step towards creating a one-world governmental system.
It was Obama’s attempt to “connect with the audience” by speaking the phrase in Spanish, “Todos Somos Americanos” that most caught my attention.
The POTUS, who let’s remember has been leaving the southern border of the country wide open and inviting immigrants to come on in, today faces the people of Cuba and the rest of the western hemisphere and says, “We are all Americans”. Now what do you think is being implied there….
