Fidel Castro Gives Up on Communism


The moonbats running the media and the federal government are virtually the only people left on the planet who still believe in communism — now that even Fidel Castro has given up on it:

Fidel Castro told a visiting American journalist that Cuba’s communist economic model doesn’t work, a rare comment on domestic affairs from a man who has conspicuously steered clear of local issues since stepping down four years ago.

The fact that things are not working efficiently on this cash-strapped Caribbean island is hardly news. Fidel’s brother Raul, the country’s president, has said the same thing repeatedly. But the blunt assessment by the father of Cuba’s 1959 revolution is sure to raise eyebrows.

Jeffrey Goldberg, a national correspondent for The Atlantic magazine, asked if Cuba’s economic system was still worth exporting to other countries, and Castro replied: “The Cuban model doesn’t even work for us anymore” Goldberg wrote Wednesday in a post on his Atlantic blog.

Other than imploding Venezuela and frozen in amber North Korea, the USA — known as the Land of Liberty prior to Obama’s “fundamental transformation” — is the only country on earth moving toward the dysfunctional nightmare of communism rather than away from it.
