Do you ever wonder why US politicians seldom if ever criticize the Mexican government for anything? You know, that infamously corrupt Government to the south that in 2006 started a drug war that has murdered close to 50,000 of its own citizens?
Why do we rarely hear Washington criticize the Mexican Government for its failure to adequately provide for its own Mexican citizens? How about for its shared responsibility for the immigration nightmare that we face in the US today?
There is a reason that half of the people in Mexico are in poverty. There is a reason that the Mexican undocumented cross our border. There is a reason that US taxpayers foot the bill for this failed immigration. There is a reason that Washington coddles the Mexican government and turns a blind eye to the entire situation. It is about greed.
Oil, trade, NAFTA, drug profits and cheap labor are real important to the rich on both sides of the fence. It is so important that those rich (who run both governments) could care less about the average citizens of either country, let alone the Mexican poor or undocumented who are here in the US.
Those very rich have us average Americans fighting about immigration and the war on drugs. It is by design that we are fighting. The rich are extremely happy when we fight. As long as we are at each others throats and blaming the symptoms (the undocumented and the addicted) and not the cause (their greed) nothing will ever improve. Actually that is with the exception of their profit margins.
They depend upon our ignorance to continue the status quo. All that fighting and lo and behold little in Washington is ever done about it.
This form of the raping of the US taxpayers is no different than failed mortgages, failed health care, and our failing economy. The rich profit from these failures, and we pay the price.
Actually it is much more insidious because it involves the greed of the elite of two nations. It involves the raping of the good citizens of both nations. Most insidious of all is that it involves the purposeful use of propaganda to coerce the darkest anger of our country’s victims against the equally victimized citizens of our good neighbors to the south.
They and their propaganda have built and militarized a border wall between the good people of both countries. It is a wall built to protect their greed and to fortify their lies. It is wall built to keep the good people of both countries from knowing and loving each other.
This is lie that the rich hide behind. This is what puts their cronies into office. This is just as threatening to our country’s humanity as any terrorist’s plot.
We could bring the bi – national immigration scam to a halt if we can overcome our own ignorance.
