            You said it, not me.

            But then you deny the USs economic sanctions on Cuba over the last how many decades?

    No.

    Uneducated people make Economic growth to suffer.

    What suffocated Cuba and suffocates venezuela, is Leftist ideology.

    Same as every other nation it has ever infected.

    You all and your psuedo Democracies and then you wonder why they do not work.

    Democracy is doomed to failure anyways... so couple it with the poisin of leftism... and sure enough you're dead.

    And America is not a Democracy.

    Though we have become a psuedo Socialist, (European Style), welfare state.

      So economic sanctions had no affect whatsoever!
      In that case don't you feel a bit silly for applying them for the last however many decades?

        They were the consequence, John.

        You wanted the cause... I told you leftist Marxian ideology was that cause.

        Keep up.

          Which at anytime since applied, could have been reserved by the republicans/conservatives, but wasn't?

          Placing blame on one side only makes the other side look foolish and dumbfounded as well.

            Have you read the earlier posts Cags?

            Do you actually know what we are discussing?

            Poverty in Cuba... there are no American Conservatives in Cuba.

            Castro was not and has never been a Conservative.

            I think you think I am saying the Leftists imposed the embargos... have not. have nmot spoken to that issue... simply the ruling ideology in Cuba since Castro and Che slaughtered and rithlessly tortured their way into power.

              Actually, I've been following the thread since it was started.
              Yes.
              Poverty was not mentioned once within this thread.

                The OP said... "Does Democracy suffocate Economic growth?"


                I am sorry for taking this for meaning more than a new store hasn't opened in the last 70 years. (as far as Cuba)

                I will try to be more specific next time.

          The consequences of what?

          Being a democracy!

          Wow look, another democracy, let's smash it.

          Mmm, noble.

            Castro's cuba was no democracy...

            That is a joke... do you really want to stand by that obvious false statement/

            Castro's cuba is not now nor has it ever been a democracy.

            Only a Leftist Socialist could call Castro's cuba a democracy and keep a straight face.

            What a laugh.

              But you said that Cuba's problems were caused by it being a democracy!

                No... I did not... go back and read the thread.

                I did not say Cuba was a democracy. I said it was a failure because of Leftist Marxian ideology.

                You and Lady wwere discussing Cuba and Venezuela.

      Hm, the implication is there, my bad for taking it the wrong way. But read your reply in the context of what had come before.
