Should The U.S. Lift The Embargo On Cuba?

Argument in favor

The embargo has had a negative impact on both countries’ economies. Why do we still have this embargo in place when the Cold War has long since died?

50-plus years of sanctions have not effected regime change in Cuba, while the Cuban people suffer. Though I once supported the embargo, I think that the Cuban regime is so obsolete that it will crumble at the sudden onslaught of modernity. Let's trade with them and when they can't catch up, let's watch the regime change.

China oppresses human rights all the time and we constantly do business with them. This embargo against Cuba is stupid and outdated.

In half a century of the embargo against Cuba we've seen no result. The sanctions failed. Increased trade and diplomacy with other nations seems to have a very good record of working.

Argument opposed

The Cuban government still abuses the human rights of its citizens; repealing the embargo now would legitimize the repressive regime.

Do yourself a favor and do a little research on communism in reference to world history.

Whether people believe opening relations with Cuba is edgy and progressive is besides the point. His political beliefs are still alive and well. We should be focused on what best improves our country, and lifting the embargo on Cuba will not be beneficial.
