That is because Obama is stupid. Cuba did their own thing and wanted to be on their own. Let them suffer and fail until they realize they need us and decide to become part of the USA as a state. In turn, we can enforce the same laws and so forth over there as here and build a base there.

Yes, and it should have been done years ago. We should have had a McDonalds in Havana the day after the Russians cut off foreign aid to them. There is no argument for not doing so...if we can overlook the human rights violations of China, our largest trading partner, we can do so with Cuba. Cuba represents a new market for American products and services, which is good for our economy. Further isolationism will gain nothing (how's that working out with North Korea?).

No, this will allow the U.S. to exploit Cuban farmers and workers.

The only people suffering with an embargo are innocent citizens. Time to let this go like we did with Japan & Germany

@9FK2DV6Veteran from New Jersey answered…1yr

I think we should have begun having talks with Cuban leaders to come to a political and economic compromise. This could lead to better relations and trade embargo lifting.

Yes, the domino effect that was touted in the 50's for communism has proven to be a farce. We have dealings with countries with dictators who have been added to humanitarian watch lists for the things they do to their own citizens. Bring on the cigars and classic cars.

Yes, trade with Cuba makes them less likely to side with our enemies.

@9F49TLDDemocrat from New York answered…1yr

Yes. The people of Cuba have suffered for so long due to no fault of their own. We need to show them we have interest in them, and their struggles.

@9DM4G98Socialistfrom Maine  answered…1yr

We should be politically allied with Cuba and the Communist Party

@9DLBFTWPeace and Freedom from Wisconsin answered…1yr

Yes, lifting the embargo would boost our economy, and serve to support free travel between the two nations.

@angel.uGreen from Maryland answered…2mos

Yes, and the economic blockade must be ended and an official apology and reparations must be made

@9VYYYWCDemocrat from Alabama answered…2mos

No, lift the travel embargo but do not allow trade until Cuba becomes anything other than a communist state

Yes, and we should pursue free trade with Cuba to boost their economy

@9JG7JG9Libertarian from Pennsylvania answered…1yr

Yes, and trade only with countries that are not currently at war with another country.

Yes, but with graduated restrictions in place for them to move toward a democratic republic

I am uncertain if this was a good thing, but I have seen evidence that trade encourages social changes. I have also seen them create conflicts of interest. I think, as long as they're willing to open trade in a more democratic way and offer their people greater freedoms, then yes. But if not, if this was not the case, then trading with them does not help us.

Yes, but limit trade interactions based on the Castro regime’s human rights record.

@9H6NT9KSocialist from Ohio answered…1yr

Yes, trade embargoes negatively harm the citizens of a country rather than its government, and the majority of the Cuban people's problems come from US and other foreign trade embargos

@9H5ZFG4Republican from Pennsylvania answered…1yr

No. Not until the Castro family and their allies are removed and actual free and fair elections are held.

@9H5JGSMVeteran from New York answered…1yr

Yes, but with restrictions based on type of trade and behaviors of Cuba

@9H2CZ45Veteran from Kansas answered…1yr

No, without conditions attached to the lifting of the embargo there will be no incentives for Cuba to negotiate with the US

@9GZVJV5Peace and Freedom from Massachusetts answered…1yr

@9GLWBKMIndependent from Kansas answered…1yr

No, it should be lifted and heavily monitored unless there is undeniable evidence of illegal acts.

I feel badly for the people of Cuba. i do not want their dictators to get the benefits of travel but offer nothing to their people

The USA should stop bullying other countries and focus its efforts on fixing what’s broken here. Set an example for other countries to follow, and stop waging war and nurturing destructive behavior because it suits our financial and political gain. It’s disgusting and immoral.
