Gary Johnson on Cuba

“While reasonable people can disagree about the negotiations that were involved, easing restrictions and opening the door to broader economic and cultural relations with Cuba is the right thing to do — and long overdue.

Free markets, open communications and opportunities for the Cuban people to see the benefits of a less antagonistic relationship with the U.S. will accomplish that which five decades of barriers clearly has not accomplished.

Make no mistake, the Castro regime has done nothing to deserve reward. But the Cuban people have done nothing to deserve being locked out of the opportunities that a better relationship with the U.S. will bring.”


19 December 2014: Press Release, Governor Gary Johnson On Easing Relations With Cuba: “The Free Market is a More Powerful Force for Good Than Is a Government-Imposed Embargo.”

BRET BAIER: Governor Johnson, here in Florida, charter flights from Fort Lauderdale to Havana, Cuba, have resumed. Is there a problem with that? And what are your thoughts on U.S.-Cuba policy?

GARY JOHNSON: I think the biggest threat to our national security is the fact that we're bankrupt, so I am promising to submit a balanced budget to Congress in the year 2013, and included in that is a 43 percent reduction in military spending. I think it's crazy that we have foreign aid to company, to countries when we're borrowing 43 cents out of every dollar to do that.

Military alliances, military alliances are really key to other countries taking up the slack. With regard to flights to Cuba? You know, I'm, I'm in favor, I think, of the whole notion that trade promotes friendship, as opposed to not. So I would be inclined to looking at establishing or supporting those kinds of flights.
