With respect to the embargo, before there was an embargo, there was the "stealing" by the Cuban government of ALL US owned businesses in Cuba. Which included the phone company owned by ITT and thus providing Cuba the highest telephone density in the western hemisphere second to the US. The Hershy Sugar Mill, which provide excellent working conditions and some of the highest wages in Europe. Contrary to what you may think, Cubans liked working for American companies because they were great places to work. Also, the revolution was a middle class revolution mainly backed by the students in the Univ. of Havana and many who did not like the Batista dictatorship. Thing is that the Castro dictatorship has been worse than the one prior.
If you want to understand why President Obama was re-elected despite a largely unsuccessful presidency and almost unprecedentedly high and continuous unemployment, just look at the Cuban-American vote.

In fact, if you want to understand America today -- specifically, why it is in decline -- just look at the Cuban-American vote.

As reported in the Wall Street Journal, "The president captured 48 percent of the Cuban-American vote in Florida -- a record high for a Democrat."

Democratic presidential nominees went from 25 percent of the Cuban-American vote in 2000, to 29 percent in 2004, to 35 percent in 2008 to 48 percent on 2012.
