It's true, it is. My mom had an accident in Cuba and they fixed her up pretty well.

Well just to let you know Cuba is communist. We had a professor from Yale come and talk to our school about a book he wrote called Waiting for Snow in Havana. He said that basically its like living in a concentration camp for the people who actually live there. The tourists are allowed to visit all the nice beaches but aren't allowed to see the real turmoil the natives face everyday.

Edit: I dunno, I would rather have health care than fund a war that no one really believes in. Like me personally, I believe we should stop spending money on that and more on solving problems on Earth. First of all, we need to fight epidemics like AIDS/HIV, and more funding to fight Global Warming. We should cut funding for finding water on mars. It just makes my blood boil that our tax money goes towards that when we should be helping the citizens of the country and the world. Oh yeah, I have another small comment about the 2nd amendment. Just because you have the right doesn't mean you should own a gun. Half of those people living out don't have a stable mind set. When you always jump to the gun as a solution to your problems you get a country that is motivated by fear, and violence. As I see it, the 2nd amendment was pretty foolish indeed.

Socialist, not communist. I don't care what kind of bullshit your being taught about Cuba, but you Americans hear alot of BS.

Sure, life isnt entirely easy, and theirs still lots of problems, but it's a growing prospering country, and an overall nice place to live.

When I was their, i strayed far far off from the tourism area's, as I went offroading in a 4x4 and stopped in a few villages.

Communism is a branch of Socialism. Cuba is communist.

I think there needs to be something done about the health care system. It's overpriced, and has a lot of loopholes. I think the government needs to impose stricter rules for insurance companies. The insurance companies seem to be money making machines as opposed to actually doing their jobs and helping their members.
I'm perfectly happy here in America. Some people here might not like it but I do. BS is heard everywhere and is inevitable. I don't even pay attention to it. The media here in the US is pathetic, we hear more about celebrities than important stuff. I personally won't be getting health care in Cuba, I get good health care in the US. Everyone's definition of "good" is different, but I've never had a problem with it except the high costs.

This movie is available online for free. It was leaked online, and Michael Moore decided he wouldn't prosecute anyone who downloads it because he feels so strongly about the movie:
