    It's too bad that the majority of the people he was speaking to probably revere castro's utopian health care system, and all have a che' T-shirt at home.

    Great speech though.
    Maybe I'm too cynical, but I believe it fell of deaf ears.

    I love it when he said "you people don't know what freedom is it, because you never lost it."

    I've met a few exiled Cubans over my lifetime. I've heard their stories. It is no joke. The horrors! This guy is obviously part of the first wave of exiles, highly trained professionals, many of them very wealthy. They where allowed to leave Cuba if they left everything behind. They came to the US with the clothes on their backs. They earned their place into society they old way, through hard work. They deserve our utmost respect.

    I too know several people from Cuba and many other socialist and communist countries young and old. Listen to him and others like him. They have BEEN THERE, THEY HAVE SEEN IT, and if They see the same things taking shape, well it SHOULD TELL ALL OF US SOMETHING!!!!

    Unfortunately, we are getting all the negatives such as the most complete police surveillance state on the planet, but very little of the benefits. In one of these other 'communist' or 'other-ist' states there are benefits like free public transport, free housing, free medical. LOL! We get (or soon will be getting) just a boot on neck, but no pampering as a balance.

    Not saying I would want to live in our of these IST nations, but our system is greatly flawed since we DO NOT live in a free market capitalist system, not by a long shot. We live in a gov-controlled, 'up and down money printing by private bankers' corp-state. We handed to control of the money supply and economy to foreign banker families (despite hundreds of warnings from our founders) long ago.

    Most importantly, one of these 'ist' nations are much easier on its people in an economic collapse. For instance, our collapse will be MUCH more devastating than the collapse of the USSR. That is why the 'it cannot happen here' Normalcy Bias folks are in for a very rude awakening. It won't only 'happen here', but be much worse than anywhere else.

    For those that do not believe that, just at least try to look at the facts of the matter offered in the below slide show. Consider how the gov and media is lying to the sheeple about the gun issues. Now, start there, then consider all the other things they are lying to you about.

    That's what's happening in schools already, cast the iron while it's still soft.

    Paid-for puppets simply do not care about truth and they most certainly do not care about you long enough to blink.

    Just sent this to KVAL

    On April 5th at the gun hearing in Salem a man named Manuel Martinez, A Cuban refugee gave a passionate testimony about escaping Castro and now sees the beginings of the same thing happening here. His testimony is now an internet sensation and I would like to see a story about this man. It would be refreshing to hear another viewpoint for a change on the gun issue.


    Please contact all the local news stations you can. It would be nice if the MSM would do a story on this guy. I contacted his son today and he said his Dad is O.K. with us trying to pressure them into running a story.

    Having personally experienced something that's remotely similar to what this guy is talking about, I totally agree with him, the real issue at hand is control and freedom, not gun control.

    If any of you pulled a tour of duty in a "third world" country and saw how the badly people were treated by their own government (and that's just the "good" governments), you'd realize what true liberty is and stock up MIGHTILY on ammo.

    I met some Romanian soldiers in Afghanistan and they loved talking with us and trading stuff and taking pictures. We thought their railed AK's with Eotechs were cool. They said they were glad to be there as a new NATO member and wish they could do more fighting with us. When I visited Prague on leave, I saw many posters that told the story of the communist regime and the horrors they had inflicted on the country. I remember reading about I think the Romanian Prime Minister scolding France for taking the friendship of the United States for granted. He said something to the effect like "We will take the United States for granted only after we've lived under its protection for 60 years like you have..."

    That speaker's point is well taken and should be remembered. You think it is hard to keep your freedoms now? Wait till you have lost them...

    We already lost it. I grew up under an authoritarian regime, so I know the scraps of liberty allowed us by the criminal regime in DC is not freedom by any definition.
