I don't think Canada is any poorer than the US. They might even have more money per capita. Their industrial sector is still somewhat healthy, they have lots of tech jobs, and their housing market isn't in danger of crashing. They also have ample amounts of land relative to their population, which is less than the state of California's.

Mexico and Central America are real basket cases but there are signs of progress. Mexico City legalized abortion, which is a huge step towards empowering women and tackling the overpopulation that is fuelling illegal immigration. Now they just need to legalize it in the rest of the country. They still have corrupt politicians and a very inequitable society, though. Suspicious elections and the works. A country with huge oil wealth, but the money doesn't seem to stimulate solid developement.

The birthrate in Mexico these days is about 2.39 children per woman; replacement level is 2.1 kids. Back in 1975 the rate was 5.7 children.

Pro Choice I may be; but, whether abortion is legal or not seems to have little overall bearing on birthrates.

An American union would only give Aztlan a victory. I say hell no!

Actually, Mexico's oil reserves are only projected to last about another 10 years. Canada is probably the next big oil producer worldwide:

Mexico's oil bonanza starts to dry up

tar sands and shale oil

So true!

that's why Mexico's economy is having a MASSIVE rearrangement these days and we only have 10 years to do it, we still have lots of gold, silver, cooper, uranium and other things though.

I think it is good that oil runs dry because it was it's misuse who made Mexico a third world country, perhaps it's time for us to look for something else

I know I said I wasn't going to show up here but I missed you guys I just felt bad about the hate vibes but I like these topics.

I have to accept it, I dream of a free world where everybody could be free to live and work wherever they liked it, it might be a crazy dream but experiences in my life and work have made me think in this way, I really wish that this immigration problem could be solved because is creating only hate and that breaks my heart I felt really bad yesterday because of it.

why are our egos so strong that we end up being deluded by them thus building imaginary lines between us?
should your brother a son of God be ilegal?

I don't agree with the idea, it simply makes my soul suffer

God is Love and those who live in Love, in God remain and God in them
Dios es Amor y el que vive en el Amor en Dios permanece y Dios en el
Deus Amor e quem vive no Amor em Deus fica e Deus nele.

Love and Light!

The ONLY thing we need is for government to do their job and enforce the laws and not ignore them to create a society thats needs their control while enabling them to meet their agenda of a One World Government.

Completely unnecessary. Why not just allow freedom of movement similar to crossing city limits? This way the countries can stay in existence without violating the (natural) law and people can flee from oppression. A win-win situation. This worked for thousands of years before the modern Republic and nationalism came together and created the anti-human migration rules which simply do not work and tamper with nature.

Well, actually that the concept of North American Union I had in mind, if the 3 countries became one, it'd be a frankenstein with few hope to prosper imho
