further, your argument doesn't take into account that communism doesn't guarantee a job, what I mean by that is that a communist country can fire people. so that lazy guy who drinks coffee all day gets fired from his job, and he has to pay for all the coffee that he stole.
And of course, capitalism has it's own set of problems
I'm not exactly happy with Capitalism, but I don't think anyone will be truly happy with their government. Okay, so maybe I'm getting the wrong image from my History teacher. She says Lenin was an evil guy, yet you say he was a good guy. So which was he?
Even though I don't like communism, I would take it over socialism, which Hillary Clinton wishes to bring us if she becomes president. Oh lord, somebody kidnap me and take me to a different country if she does.
Ahem. We're getting a bit off-topic here. It's my fault completely. I apologize.
No back to Castro...
It's good to see him resign, but like I said before the other Castro is the same. So I guess Cuba's not really gaining much. :/
