President Reagan and the lies of communism

Like many of his generation, President Reagan was a strong anti-communist. 

He understood the evil empire and that you have to negotiate from a position of strength rather than weakness.
 
Over the Christmas holidays, I found this from the late President Reagan:
“How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin.
And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.” —Remarks in Arlington, Virginia, September 25, 1987

In my life, I have found that this is true.
 
Most people who favor communism in polls do not really understand what it means or have lived under it.   They see it as some romantic idea based on false promises of equality and justice. 
 
On the other hand, we Cubans, or others from who experienced communism directly, see it for what it is.
 
Communism was, and is, a great lie.
