Cuban Revolution

Not the kind you're thinking. The niece of Fidel Castro is leading an increasingly popular movement in Cuba to modernize the country's machismo sexual politics, pushing for acceptance of gay people and transsexuals. Read on, it's a fascinating piece. With liberalization comes tolerance, with tolerance comes freedom, with freedom comes democracy; they are all inextricably linked, classical liberal values.

Or you could run it in reverse conservative style. With democracy comes freedom, err freemarket, with a freemarket comes money, with money comes power, now remove democracy.

Now I remember . . . that's how Canada was formed . . . a same-sex union between a French man and an English man . . . they got together on the Plains of Abraham and said they would multiply and populate the new country from sea to sea.
They said we will create the Natural Governing Party, because we feel your pain . . . we know what you need . . . and we love to spend your hard-earned money . . . and the LPC was born!

Hey Thomas . . . I think you mean Cuba is a Liberal Democracy . . .
