How naive, how very intellectual of them.
“We were dumb enough to sign NAFTA and CAFTA” Convention...
Obviously that is true, because they still have lots of poverty and inequity, after 50 some years of communism. Communism creates two things, hunger and refugees.

Well color me RED. Already the economies of Bolivia, Venezuela and even some of Brazil are suffering from the marxists, with Kirchner of Argentina trying to become a mini-Marxist Peronista clown.
Don’t know how Ecuador is doing, nor Uruguay where a Monteneros terrorist supporter is now the president. We’ll know when the next wave if political refugees hit our shores.
