I will continue to make these points as long as you refuse to acknowledge that the playing field is not level. Any other country that had to put up with the kind of military and military aggression that Cuba has would most surely be less democratic. In 1942 the US threw Japanese-Americans into concentration camps because it was at war with Japan. That's how "democracies" act when under threat. On its worst days, Cuba never did anything like that.
