Fidel Castro has been the dictator of Cuba since 1959.
Dictator means to have complete power over everything (people and .
Government) He won his seat in power after overthrowing Fulgencio Batista. .
Fidel leads the communist Cuba which has a big effect n the foreign and .
Domestic policies. .
Castro was born in Biran, near Mayari, Cuba. His given and family .
name was Fidel Castro Ruz. His father was a Spanish immigrant who owned .
a small plantation. Castro graduated from the University of Havana in 1950 .
with a law degree. Afterwards, Castro opened a law office in Havana. In .
1952, he ran for election to the Cuban House of Representatives. But troops .
led by Batista halted the election and ended democracy in Cuba. .
The domestic and foreign policy of Fidel was that he was a dictator, .
and the country of Cuba communist. By being a dictator, Fidel had.
complete control over everything, and by being a communist country, it .
meant that the people had no say in the government. For Fidel, being a .
Dictator in a communist country, puts him in a very powerful position. Fidel .
wasn't the person that made the country communist though. The dictator .
before him did. His name was Fulgencio Batista.
The effects on his nation simply stated that people in Cuba don't really .
have a life, because there ruled by the government since the democratic .
Cuba was over-ruled in. This effected the world's trades and wars.
I think that Fidel Castro is a very powerful and respectful leader. In .
my opinion, I think that he uses his powers in a good way, because he's .
trying to make things positive for the country. But if I was a resident of .
Cuba, I would probably think that he needs to give more freedom, and try .
hard to make our opinions count.
