The Cuban Embargo Destroys American Liberty

• https://www.fff.org by Jacob G. Hornberger

The idea is that if enough Cubans are dying or languishing in poverty, they will rise up, violently revolt against Cuba's communist regime, and replace it with a U.S.-approved dictator, like the one who was ousted from power in the Cuban revolution in 1959. 

So far, the embargo has failed to achieve its goal, notwithstanding the fact that this Cold War dinosauric relic is still in existence and still targeting the Cuban people with death and poverty.

What many Americans do not realize, however, is that the federal government's Cuban embargo is also an attack on the fundamental rights and liberties of the American people. 

In a genuinely free society, people have the right to engage in economic transactions with others. They also have the right to travel freely wherever they want and spend their money any way they want. They also have the right to associate with whomever they want.
