The Pope Agrees with Ron Paul on Cuba

The Pope has called for an end the the U.S. trade embargo on Cuba: something that Ron Paul argued for in the Florida debate.


"(Reuters) - Pope Benedict called for an end to the U.S. trade embargo against Cuba and met with revolutionary icon Fidel Castro on Wednesday as he ended a trip in which he urged the communist island to change.

He also spoke at a public Mass in Havana's sprawling Revolution Square where the Vatican said 300,000 people gathered to hear the 84-year-old pontiff.

In a trip laced with calls for change in Cuba, his last message was aimed at the United States, its longtime ideological foe, which for 50 years has imposed a trade embargo trying to topple the Caribbean island's communist government.

Speaking in a departure ceremony at a rainy Havana airport, Benedict said Cuba could build "a society of broad vision, renewed and reconciled," but it was more difficult "when restrictive economic measures, imposed from outside the country, unfairly burden its people."

"The present hour urgently demands that in personal, national and international co-existence we reject immovable positions and unilateral viewpoints," the German pope, dressed in white vestments, said in his soft voice and heavily accented Spanish."

Dr.Ron Paul's 2002 Predictions

Poor Ricky

He probably thinks the Pope is a traitor to Catholicism and a communist since he talked to a communist. If I know Frothy, I suspect Vatican City might be found a threat to US security.

Funny how Ron Paul sets the

Funny how Ron Paul sets the trends when it comes to current events. Cuba hasn't been in the spotlight for quite a while until Ron Paul brought them up.

Oh no! Santy will be calling

Oh no! Santy will be calling for the Popes head I'm sure!

Rick is just smart enough to know we have predator drones for that.
