It&rsquo;s unbelievable how some people are lauding praise upon this dictator who murdered and oppressed the people of Cuba for almost 60 years. Even our own president couldn&rsquo;t find it in his heart to call Castro what he really is. Why do liberals gravitate to dictators? &mdash; Cappy the Capitalist<br />\n Dear Cappy: &nbsp;<br />\n Most liberals will never admit this but they actually hate America and they will sympathize with anyone else who hates America &mdash; even murderous dictators. Now these same liberals will become defensive and claim they love America as much as conservatives, it&rsquo;s just that they would like to see some changes. Unfortunately the socialistic changes they want would destroy the very freedoms that make America, America.<br />\n Liberals tend to believe that the United States is only a piece of land whereas conservatives believe that America is not only a piece of land but also a set of ideas and principles. Liberals believe in a centralized authority and do not understand liberty, rugged individualism and inalienable rights &mdash; the very tenets of our country.<br />\n Referring to Castro&rsquo;s demise, President Obama offered this wishy washy statement for the ages.&ldquo;We know that this moment fills Cubans in Cuba and in the United States with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation. History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.&rdquo;<br />\n Wow Barack Obama had more severe words for Donald Trump than an olive drab fascist. I believe the soon to be former President of the United States couldn&rsquo;t bring himself to use negative language against one of his own. Then again Barack Obama still refuses to use the term &ldquo;radical Islam.&rdquo; Gotta be a coincidence.<br />\n Liberal defenders of Castro claim he provided a great health care and education system for his people which is debatable at best. For the sake of the argument let&rsquo;s say that&rsquo;s true. What good is education and health care if the citizens don&rsquo;t have the freedom to use them?</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n I can&rsquo;t believe that House Democrats re-elected Nancy Pelosi as House Minority Leader. Pelosi is a cackling lib who has done nothing but cost Democrats seats in the House. I&rsquo;m no Democrat but as a political hack, I do wonder how this will benefit them strategically. What were they thinking? &mdash; Deplorable and Happy<br />\n Dear Deplorable: &nbsp;<br />\n The re-election of &ldquo;San Fran Nan&rdquo; is music to the ears of this conservative columnist. Pelosi is always good for ridiculous quotations and public stances.&nbsp; Pelosi who represents the liberal wing of the party defeated Ohio Representative Tim Ryan who sounds like a reasonable Democrat and is more in line with the Reagan Democrats of the eighties. Did I just say &ldquo;reasonable Democrat?&rdquo;<br />\n Pundits will tell you that Pelosi survived the vote because she still has the ability to raise mountains of money for Democrat candidates as well as the national party. Personally I believe Pelosi survived because she has unflattering dossiers on every Democrat house member and knows where the bodies are buried in DC.<br />\n Donald Trump&rsquo;s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway summed up my feelings best in the following tweet: &ldquo;What a relief. I was worried they had learned from the elections and might be competitive and cohesive again.&rdquo;</p>\n<p> DEAR MARK: &nbsp;<br />\n Barack Obama is whining again about FOX News unfairly influencing politics. I don&rsquo;t read Rolling Stone magazine but I saw the excerpt of the president&rsquo;s interview and think it&rsquo;s a bunch of crap. Why does he continue to beat the FOX News drum? &mdash; No Moss in Missouri<br />\n Dear Moss: &nbsp;<br />\n Liberals blame whoever they can because they just can&rsquo;t accept that their ideas are the reason they are losing elections.&nbsp; In the interview President Obama basically said that Democrats could not effectively get their message out to certain voters. The president went on &ldquo;Part of it is FOX News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country.&rdquo; Let&rsquo;s see, FOX News shown in all of these job creating small businesses, um I guess the president doesn&rsquo;t see the obvious connection.</p>\n<p> E-mail your questions to <a href=\"mailto:marklevy92@aol.com\">marklevy92@aol.com</a>.
