    Exclamation Marco Rubio (Republican Senator - Florida) mentions the DR (not good!)



    Marco Rubio is a Republican Senator (Florida) in the US Senate.

    The representative of the DR in the OAS recently voted to abstain regarding a possible OAS intervention in Venezuela. Most countries voted in favor of intervening. Most of the countries that abstained or voted against are Caribbean countries (think PetroCaribe and it all makes sense.)

    What could Rubio mean by 'impact relationship with US?'

    Will the US impose sanctions on the DR, affecting trade?

    Will the US make it harder for Americans to travel to the DR, affecting tourism?

    Will the DR be put on a list of an 'axis of evil' type?

    Does the DR get financial aid from the US? That could be an issue since it would come with strings attached.

    Other than that, I would not worry much. There is currently the scrapping of Obamacare while the Russians are coming to keep Marco distracted.

    One senator does not make or brake one country's politics.

    DR tends to be neutral in international politics. I like the fact the DR has no real declared enemies. Haiti is as close as it gets, and that relationship isn't *that* bad, just running hot and cold.

    Not a fan of a Senator making a veiled threat to countries in public. Perhaps the US are smarting from the DR (Leonel) giving Zeyala refuge.

    I suspect at worse the US would slow-walk aid.

    I agree mostly. Fairly accurate analysis from what I have been able to read.

    Both the PRD and PLD political parties have historical socialist beginnings and are membrs of socialist International. They weakly support the ideas behind socialist governance.

    Obamaphones have no bearing on the origins of political parties in the DR.

    Bob's point, I suspect, was that because of some historical soft socialist leanings of DR political parties may create a soft spot for other socialists/Marxists. And he may be correct.

    That has no connection to Obamaphones.

    Its all about policies and the support thereof, if the DR, turns their back on Americas policy towards the government of Venezuela, is just naturally that something won't ring to the same tone to the USA.



    Rest assure that calls and meetings have and will continue to happen among the DR and the Embassy with these regards at the forefront.

    Easiest way to kill a good OP, tossing threats around. I for once failed to see anything that wasn't DR related on previous post?
