If Cuba was so great

I read an article talking about Cuba's great Universal healthcare and break through today and all I can think is "If Cuba was so great then why do it's citizens try to escape from it?"

Then I read the comments from Americans, Whoa. They really think Cuba is a wonderland???? Then I ran across this and I saved it, because it is the truth about Cuba.

I am a Cuban national and I want you all to read this very well :
For all ignorant American who strongly feels that universal health
insurance works in Cuba, you just know as much as most students in
US that comes out from high school, NOTHING !, because, ask an
American student who just finished high school, ask him/her about
Mathematic, English composition, Chemistry, Biology, Geography,
Literature, History, Science Calculation and that student knows
nothing and all taxpayers money was wasted in the educational
system, it does not work and weather you agree or not, it's up to
you, but it's the truth .

Now, in Cuba, you must be a truly socialist lover, an a.s kisser of
the government to enter medical school, you will do labor camp work
for free, a lot of other free work and it's true that you don't pay
for medical school, except all the force, agriculture work, cleaning
parks, streets, painting houses, all with out getting pay; BUT, the
day you become a doctor, this is the picture:

1) You have no house to live in ( Cuba does not built homes) , you
live with in laws or parents.

2) You go to work at a government hospital ( everything is belong to
the estate ), a hospital not to far as the one from Haiti,
were there is not diets (meals) for patient, you eat if your family brings you
something to eat, otherwise, you are in trouble; also, there is not
hospital beds, well equipped as the one you see here in the US, an old iron bed, with a very old
mattress and not beds sheet and forget about air conditioning as well.

3) If the doctor does something wrong, no lawsuit, go to sue your
mother, because " free health care comes with risks "

4) A medical doctor in Cuba, EARNS $ 60.00 dollars a month, that
doctor will never have a home of his own, he will never have a car to travel, no food to eat,
but the little food the Castro government gives you every month ( control portions )

5) You work long hours, 12 hrs. x day, you see 120+ patients per day
and you prescribe medicine that there is none, one old, empty pharmacy in a whole
city, people walk miles to get to it ( no 24 hrs. pharmacy ) and when you get there,
there is nothing to buy.

6) The government gives that so call free education ) after you are
a socialist like them, do free camp, agriculture work, etc. ); then that same doctor becomes a
SLAVE of the system for life, it's like an investment the estate does with you, then you
repay the system with your slavery work, until you die.

That's the reality of Cuba, the free education. Here in America, a
fast food worker lives a better life than a Cuban doctor and I hope
you believe me, it's all true and I do apologize for my poor
English spelling, my native language is Spanish; at least I am not

an ignorant, like most of people
here, people that do not even know were Afghanistan was, until

America got involved in that country. Thank you for reading.

LOL I am sure a lot left haters would be torching this post if they had exposure to it.

I twittered a link to here but I doubt it will reach many. It did open my eyes wider.

Since it is from an actual person with first hand knowledge I think they would bury it rather than debate it.

Free health care, free education, free this-that-and-the next thing... I saw a bumper sticker that sums it all up and warned people before Obamacare passed and everyone was pointing to Cuba and Canada as examples of "free" health care:

"If you think health care is expensive now, wait until it's free"

I don't believe Cuba to be the threat to National Security that it was during the Cold War years. Heck, if Eisenhower had forked over enough cash, Cuba would have been on our side. Castro sold his soul to the highest bidder... that aside, it's far from the Liberal Utopia that many Americans claim it to be. If only more people could read something like the essay above.

Hopefully more Cubans speak out.
