Should the United States lift the trade embargo against Cuba?
Asked at Lawrence Public Library on December 11, 2002
“I guess that would probably be a good thing. I don’t see (Fidel) Castro as the threat he was 20 years ago, and it’s good for the economy.”
“I understand the economic reasons for doing so, but the Cold War notwithstanding, I think there are political issues there. I don’t think we should lift them yet.”
“I think that if it was lifted it probably would not help the country of Cuba because of their dictator. It’d help us, but it wouldn’t help them.”
“Yes, I do. At this point I find it ridiculous. There are starving people over there.”
