The fall of Venezuela’s socialist dictatorship could spell the end of Cuba’s socialist dictatorship

While the Cuban regime has survived many events that should have taken it down, the socialist Castro dictatorship has also been quite lucky. When the Castro family dictatorship has found itself on the ropes, someone or something has seemed to always show up at the last moment to throw the murderous and corrupt regime a lifeline.

Venezuela was one of those lifelines that pulled the Castro dictatorship to safety the last time it found itself about to drown.
