FORT MYERS, FLORIDA — Former Florida Governor Charlie Crist has called for an end to the U.S. embargo of Cuba.

“It’s been 50 years, and it hasn’t worked,” Crist said.”And because that amount of time, you want to see if policies can work, and can come to fruition. It’s apparent to me, after 52 years, I think it is now, that this one has not. And I don’t want the people of Cuba to suffer anymore, and I think if we enter in trade with Cuba, it will help Florida and America, and the people of Cuba.”

Do you agree with Crist, or do you believe Fidel Castro deserves the majority of the blame for the Cubans suffering?
