Yes they are both corrupt, but Mexico is worse.

Since Mexico depends on the tourist industry, maybe we should put sever sanctions on Mexico until they treat their people right. I still think if 12 million were forced back into Mexico after having had a taste of decent living conditions they would rise up against the Mexican government and make their demands to the givernment that is actually responsible for them.

The Top 5% do. The citizens do not get any part of that, obviously that is the main problem.

Maybe in the next 50 years, those things take time, I just don't think it is going to happen fast enough for the people.

And just how is that my problem? They should rise up against their OWN government and leave us the hell out of it.

it is pure luck that you were born here and not there. you should appreciate that luck, and use your lucky position to make good for those unlucky. it's called charity, humanitarism, heart. all admirable qualities for any person to have.

I am lucky, but that doesn't change the fact that there is not enough room in this country to take in the entire world's poor. I don't see you adopting orphaned AIDS babies from Africa...but by the grace of god you're not one. Same thing. Glass houses, ghost. Glass houses.

man, i give to the poor how i can. im not exactly a fat rich american. i am considered poor myself.

and the united states DOES have the room. we rank 172nd in population density. europe ranks 88th. are you claiming we can not thrive with the same population density as europe? if so, how is it possible for them to thrive?

LOL, I am getting the feeling that you NEVER took a college-level geography class. I did. I could waste my time telling you why your argument is asinine, but would you even understand it?
