The religious right is a voting block on a myriad of issues. Some Cubans seem to hold a little power as a voting block as well. Atheists as a group don't seem to have any effect on elections. Maybe atheists as a group do not agree on much except their rejection of religion. I am curious how many people agree with the policy of isolating and punishing Cuba. We worked out that God doesn't exist - are we all over the map on these types of non rational political decisions.
I wouldn't have even asked this question to a predominately U.S. audience - but I saw Bil Maher make a good case on this question last night. Most of us in Canada view this like Bill but I found a weird right wing Canadian take take on Bill Maher's talk to illustrate that some up here in Canada agree with the current policy on Cuba.
I've visited Cuba twice and was impressed with the people there.
My question is - Isn't the U.S. isolation of Cuba kind of insane?
