I know. I HAVE A SOLUTION!!!!!

Mexicans want to be Americans. So, why don't we just invade Mexico and annex the whole damn country - then all those Mexicans can be bona fide Americans - and we will have access to the resources that Mexico's corrupt, inept, ineffective and autocratic leaders are squandering (and mismanaging).

Now that is a solution.

I've got to hand it to you for honesty.
Your goal is simply to plunder and loot the US. Let's help ourselves to everything the Americans have, right noble Aztec Warrior? Why not?
This business about the gringo stole your land, you do the jobs no one else would, our economy would collapse if it weren't for you wastebasket emptiers, the US is 'mean' and 'racist' if we do not give you everything you want, etc. is all a smokescreen. You want what we have. You reconquistas are operating on the level of a 3 year old- what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine.
Many people have tried to explain to you why there is not enough for everyone. And even if there was enough- why the **** should we share it with you? The people of Malaysia or Tibet deserve our help more than you people. At least they would not be marching in our streets and burning our flag.
This 'enough for everyone' post is a classic. There should be a sticky thread so we can immortalize your more profound observations for all time.

IMO, this would be an unmitigated disaster. We would bankrupt ourselves trying to straighten the place out. And probably fail.

I could see annexing Canada where birth rates, education, income, and culture are similar to the US, but Mexico would be suicide.

Well, the whole point of my post is the absurdity of it.

Of course we can't conquer Mexico. We already fought that fight, LOL.

However, with so much of Mexico's population migrating here (illegally) and American dollars being sent back to Mexico to bolster up their own economy . . . and w/ so many Mexicans evidently wanting to be American citizens . . . I was hoping it would give pause to everyone how ridiculous it is for us to be spending tax dollars RIGHT NOW on entitlements for illegals (and their anchor baby kids).

We might as well have Mexico under our flag, w/ the dollars we are spending to take educate, feed and provide healthcare to their citizens.

Smile when you all say that: if Mexico were to disintegrate; which is not totally unlikely, we may wind up with Nuevo Leon, Sonora, Chihuahua, Tamapaus (sp) and Baja.

Apparently those Mexicans who actually live in the above Mx states ain't real happy about subsidizing Chiapas, etc.
