Cuba sent the S. Africa home at Carnavale.This is why the white supremacists among us refuse travel!They won anyway!

My wife support passage of H.R. 4645, which would eliminate restrictions on travel to Cuba. The best way to change Cuban policies is people-to-people contact between Americans and Cubans in Cuba. Why are American allowed to travel to countries with dictatorships or human rights vuiolations like Burma, Syria, China, Libya, and even North Korea and yet be denied travel to Cuba. And why could Americans frolic at Cuban casinos, nightclubs, and beached during Batista's thuggish regime? Because Batista was in our pocket whereas Castro is not

I support the H.R. 4645. What happen to freedom of liberty? We are Americans and we love the Cuban people.

Opening up trade and travel to Cuba will only speed up changes and improvements to the everyday lives with jobs and also will benific the of Cuban citizens with food.

I am packing my bags as we speak! Its about time. The embargo against Cuba has been embarrassingly ineffective. True change must come from within Cuba. And as an American I strongly believe in my right to travel wherever I want! I pay taxes for the rights I enjoy.

I have been dreaming since my teenage years to travel to Cuba. Hopefully, my dreams will come true pretty soon.

It's funny how our government has restrictions on Cuba. But when it comes to China, we don't have any restrictions. Isn't it nice that the communist Chinese are able to build factories in the U.S. and sell their cheap goods here. Let's lift the embargo and give the Cuban people the same chances.

This is a bad bill for both the people of Cuba and of the United States. Opening trade to Cuba will do the same thing that it did China. A few get rich, the mass of the people stay poor and the communist government continues on as it has in the past repressing the majority.

I support HR 4645... it is time to end the ban on travel to Cuba and thus improve relations between the US and Cuba as well as encourage change and improvement in the lives of Cubans. It is a shame that we are so close and yet so far apart! Down with the travel ban and down with the embargo. Viva US and Cuba relations!!! God Bless our 2 beautiful countries!!
