The United States is eating itself alive with it's greed and degeneracy- the question is will Cuba hold on before the US implodes, personally I hope so.

Is he their ambassador to Ireland or does he live next door and come across occasionally?

Ask him if he ever gets to drive that lovely BMW or is he always chauffeur-driven ?
Viva la revolución.

Who gives a toss if the Cuban ambassador is here or not?
How many dozen will even bother going to see him?

I hoped you asked him the date of the next General Election over there?:cool:
2018? This information is widely available, or are you suggesting Cuba doesn't have elections?

For people with access to the internet, the amount of stupid posts on politics.ie is overwhelming.

Cuba has a better participatory and representative system than Ireland.

Technically they may hold elections but only approved candidates from the ruling party can be elected which isnt democracy in the grand scheme of things.

Flat out factually incorrect.

The way elections are run is completely different. There is a % given to trade unionists, local representatives, indigenous people, etc (much like the Soviet model) and candidates do not run on party tickets but on issue - regional tickets.

The constitution has Socialism enshrined in it so I don't see why the CPC [which does not hold the reigns of government] would need to regulate who runs for election.

They also have recall elections.

Perhaps if you bothered to read it instead of looking at FOX News you might actually know something.

Old Cuban joke :

What are the three successes of the Cuban revolution ?
Education, health and sport

What are the three failures of the Cuban revolution ?
Breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Perhaps if you take your head out of your socialist utopia you will find the regime you admire so much imprisons or murders political dissidents and journalists, oppresses its own people, prevents them from leaving the country, has taken away private ownership of business to place them into state hands, bans all opposition political parties, media etc, it is nothing but a murderous dictatorship like all communist dictatorships in history have been, communism has done nothing but murder, torture and enslave and yet you admire this barbaric ideology why.
