Marco Rubio on Cuba, and Venezuela Becoming Another Cuba

After Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin praised Cuba, the Florida Senator delivered a response for the ages (HT Hot Air):

His wrap:

I can close by saying this: Over the last week, I have tweeted about these issues. I get thousands of retweets from students and young people, until they shut them out, in Venezuela who are encouraged by the fact that we are on their side.

What they want is what we have, the freedom and the liberty. That’s what all people want.

And if America and its policy-makers are not going to be firmly on the side of freedom and liberty, who in the world is? Who on this planet will? If this nation is not firmly on the side of human rights and freedom and the dignity of all people, what nation on the Earth will?

And if we’re prepared to walk away from that, then I submit to you that this century is going to be a dangerous and dark one. But I don’t believe that’s what the American people want from us. Nor the majority of my colleagues.
