Gene Chapman: Cuban Exiles Welcome in Libertarian Party

I remember the seven day fast I did against Fidel Castro Ruiz in about 2004, as I remember, at the Bay of Pigs Monument in Little Havana, Miami.  "The Miami Herald" covered the fast in at least the Spanish edition.  The next day, elderly Cuban men, who had been in the Bay of Pigs Invasion began to come see me by one's and two's and then three's.  I was fasting in solidarity against the 10 planks of "The Communist Manifesto," and they would each say, some in broken English, "Thank you for what you are doing."

One man in his 70's had tears welled up in his eyes, as he remembered how John F. Kennedy had left them as sitting ducks for Castro, no air cover.  I remember how these men would talk with me, as I sat fasting at the Bay of Pigs Monument day-after-day.  I would ask, "Hillary Clinton socialista?"  They would reply, "Hillary Clinton socialista."  I would say, "Democrats socialista?"  They would say,  "Democrats socialista."  I would say, "Republicans socialista?"  They would say, "Republicans socialista."

Well, to my good friends who remain in Little Havana and beyond, I want you to know that the Libertarian Party in America loves you and welcomes you with open arms as our comrades for freedom.  You are our heros!!!

Come help us free America from Marxism.

Most respectfully,
