Older people from Cuba and Russia who tell their stories are performing a valuable service, because they’ve seen the glowing promises evolve into the horrific realities.

From The Blaze:

Rafael Cruz, the father of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, invigorated the crowd during tonight’s FreedomWorks Free the People event.

Describing his own personal journey escaping Cuba and working hard to build a life for himself in the U.S., the elder Cruz noted comparisons that he believes exist between Fidel Castro’s governance and President Barack Obama’s executive actions.

Upon rising to power, he said that Castro, like Obama, spoke about hope and change. While the message sounded good at the time, it didn’t take long for socialism to take root in his home country. And he paid the price.

Here’s the video. I usually shrink down the size a little but this one deserves the big-screen treatment:

Conservatives are talking about Ted Cruz for president, but if it weren’t for the natural-born-citizen clause I’d also pull the lever for his father too.

    We should be so lucky to have such a Patriot in the WH ! Isn`t it amazing that it takes a foreigner to tell us the truth about the direction of our Nation ?

    Wow…I'm passing that great speech on! There is nothing so powerful as when people who have LIVED under communists countries come forth and tell their stories…and how they see it happening again.

    Thanks so much Mr. Powers, for posting this speech that everyone should see!

    Agreed, Joyanna ! The problem is, we are the only ones hearing and believing; lefties see it as selling out the cause or just plain lying !
