The Cuba “embargo”–American grass-roots constitutionalism at its finest
The Council on Foreign Relations.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
The United Nations.
The Organization of American States.
The Carlyle Group.
The Brookings Institute.
The Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
The New York Times.
The Wall Street Journal.
Practically the entire Beltway-based media.
On the other side, as proponents, we find:
U.S. citizens voting at the grass-roots level for their legislators.
The first group relentlessly lobbies the U.S. executive branch to circumvent the legislative branch and lift the sanctions against Castro's Cuba by executive fiat. (i.e. to further install and Imperial Presidency.)
The second group exercises its constitutional rights and votes for its choice of legislators.
The Cuba embargo thus remains in place, as codified into law by those very elected legislators.
Imagine if you will.....a place where Cuba embargo opponents (the first group) are portrayed in the media as grass-roots populists and the second group (Cuba embargo proponents) as a powerful, secret, influential and sinister cabal....welcome to the Cuba embargo zone.
