Ron Paul has always advocated free trade with Cuba: no barriers, no subsidies, and complete freedom for Americans to buy Cuban goods, and American farmers and businessmen to export to Cuba. Ron also knows that free trade means exporting capitalism to Cuba, just what that poor country needs. All the other candidates are for tightening the screws on Cubans (and would-be American traders and visitors). Ron Paul wants to export freedom and private property rights. And good for him for using the occasion of Castro’s resignation to call for an end to immoral and protectionist anti-civilian sanctions.
