Of course he’s doing that only AFTER he’s disarmed the cartels ...
Once people allow a government to take away a freedom, scarcely anything short of violence can get it back. Be warned.
Nothing like all the Catholics who were killed during the Cristiada by Calles and his co-horts.
See For Greater Glory — I think it’s now on DVD.
The government wants to disarm the people because 1) to get the bribery money flowing again and 2) they are afraid the people will tun the guns on them.
It is almost impossible for people to fight govt. tyranny disarmed. Mexico needs another revolution....the last one didn’t take.
The corruption of Mexico's government at all levels have left the Mexican people defenseless and so they have armed themselves and organized a common defense; a militia.
This could be us. Factions in this country wish to disarm the American people.
Watch this video and imagine yourself in their situation.
Last Mexican Revolution the wrong people won. It reminds me of what Frederick Douglas Said long ago— “Let he who would be Free strike the First Blow.” The US should send troops, trainers, guns to the Mexican Rebels—The Cartels have bought the Government there. Word of warning—NO AMERICAN SHOULD STEP ACROSS THE BORDER FOR THE NEXT DECADE.
Friend from Mexico would not travel there during the previous regime because the government fought the cartels and made things very dangerous. He said if a regime is elected that will leave cartels alone, safety will improve for travelers. I guess that is what happened because he took his family back to visit relatives during Christmas. Sad state of affairs when criminals run the country.
” Sad state of affairs when criminals run the country.”
Kind of what we have in this country?
That was good.
These folks (los grupos de autodefensa) who have banded together in several Mexican communities to fight off the cartels when the government won’t do that (and may even be in corrupt “cohoots” with the cartels) are doing the right and courageous thing. It’s disgusting that the government then comes in and tries to disarm them merely because they were doing what the authorities should have done.
I’ve been predicting for years, that inevitably the US is going to have to move in and occupy Mexico.
No way. Build the damned WALL, NOW! Let them settle it among themselves.
The police are working with the cartels and the government, the people are out there on thier own,
It’s going to get much uglier there. You think we’ve got a lot of people crossing the border now.....Well, to quote the Gipper, “You ain’t seen nothing yet.”
Mexicans CAN own certain guns, such as shotguns. My brother and his wife have retired in La Paz, Mexico. We have traveled there several times. For the most part, the people are good, but seriously poor. The police are paid terrible wages. Yet through the goodness of the people, La Paz is organizing to keep the cartels out. Police are being vetted and praised for providing protection, behaving ethically and morally, given recognition, etc., and those who are corrupt—fired and prosecuted. Corrupt politicians are driven away. Good things are happening all over Mexico at the grassroots level—a lot like the Tea Party here.
Follow-up, it would be worded better if I said, the Tea Party can learn something from the local militias in Mexico—we may need such actions sooner than later. I can see that we would organize and operate no so differently than what they are now doing in Mexico.
Mexico may have reached a point of no return. Mexico has never been a society based on the respect of and the rule of law. At the very least it was a racist, class-ridden kleptocracy. It’s now descending into anarchy because of the drug trade and the criminal gangs at the head of that business who have bought off major parts of the government, the army and the police. I can’t see this situation getting any better soon. It can only get worse and then God help us because when Mexico finally implodes there will be a human tragedy along our southern border and Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California will be swamped.
“A covenant not to defend myself from force by force is always void. For, as I have shown before, no man can transfer or lay down his right to save himself from death, wounds, and imprisonment, the avoiding whereof is the only end of laying down any right; and therefore the promise of not resisting force, in no covenant transferreth any right, nor is obliging.”
