Lift the embargo once Cubans get a republic.

The best way to remove it would be slowly over time. Completely lifting the embargo in one go for exchange of a Cuban republic would probably end in an Iranian democracy.
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

Of course. The Cuban embargo is pointless at best.

1. It only stops trade with the US. Cuba still trades with the rest of the world.

2. It provides pro-Castro totalitarian f***heads with an excuse.

3. By opening up to Cuba they would be more expressed to democracy and it's benefits, and there is a higher likelihood of demand for change. Socialist dictatorships have a tendency to isolate their citizens from the western world. There is a reason for that, ya know. :)

So prove me wrong, then.

No!!! The USA will turn Communist!!!

Yea scrap it, it's obscene.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Scrap it. The Castros use it as an excuse for their repression. They can use the embargo as an example of how much the U.S hates them, and thereby justify militarization and complete lack of freedom, because it keeps the Cuban people safe from the U.S.

Dropping the embargo is the best way of making sure Cuba starts to reform and the best way to ensure the quality of life for the Cubans improve. Their appears to be no benefits to the embargo, and no harm is rescinding it. They should have done this at least 18 years ago.
