Great post, it sounds exactly like the right thing for them to do, get rid of the corruption in gov from top to bottom in order to live freely so they can prosper. I hope and pray that someday that will come true for all of Mexico as well as here in the US. The following may be just one of the many reasons why that has not yet happened in Mexico. A number of years ago many of the locals around Chiapas (spelling?), located in southern Mexico, attempted a revolt against the local suppressive Mexican gov. If I am not mistaken, the Mexican Feds HAD to intervene and used military hardware that was made in the good ol US of A and thus proceeded to slaughter many of the Mexican patriots, ending that phase of the revolt. I do not recall hearing if the US gov had a publicized reaction or comment to the Mexican governments wholesale slaughtering of its citizens with US military weapons. I’d welcome more info on this if any one has it. If the Mexican PEOPLE are truly ever going to change their homeland, they will need the support of the US, support they will never see as long as the elites in the US gov remains complicit in maintaining the status quo of keeping the suppressive tyrants (redundant but it fits) in power who run Mexico. After all, any Mexicans (or anyone of any other nationality for that fact) who can be exploited for cheap wages and hard labor here in the US is good for the elitists in the US too. I love this country and totally support the fact that all laws must be enforced in order to achieve equality for all but the selective enforcement of some laws i.e., the illegal immigration problem, is nothing less than sickening exploitation of a people desperate to survive. No, I am not a Mexican, I was born in Arkansas so I guess I could be called an Arkie but more so, I am an American and I do believe in the goodness of this country.
Freedom is not free. There are worse things than dying. The countries of Latin America fought for their independence from the Spanish and Portuguese and won. They need to find the same backbone today and retake their countries.
Moving to America only makes their homelands worse.
