    Cuban-born Sen. Mel Martinez, R-Fla., is working behind the scenes in a bipartisan way to kill the massive spending measure now wending its way through the Senate because of provisions that loosen decades of restrictions against his native land.

    The senator took to the floor in a blistering speech ticking off a host of examples of human rights abuses committed by the dictatorship, formerly led by Fidel Castro and now by his brother, Raul, including the flaunting of international law and the cozying up to other authoritarian regimes throughout the world that sponsor terror, like those in Iran and Venezuela.

    The omnibus spending bill, which funds most government agencies through September 30, eases restrictions on travel and extends credit for increased trade to the island nation, all moves that Martinez says will not benefit the Cuban people as the measure exacts no positive actions in return.

    Just like our liberal churches today....when we start compromising our traditional values, where does it end?

    Sad to say, I fear that this is just one of the first of a long string of compromises to come, and we will suffer as a nation because of them.

    If Martinez believes this I think he is sadly mistaken.

    Mel Martinez, a Cuban American, knows full well what he is talking about.
