Once upon a time in the United States , we Americans experienced more peace and prosperity because of a) More reverence for God, and b)obedience to laws. Laws of God, laws of parents, as well as civil and criminal laws that even outlawed abortion, adultery, sodomy, fraud (as in bank bailout fraud), communism, disobedience to parents and even truancy. Admittedly, there were laws which denied minorities the right to drink at water fountains, and other oppressive restrictions specifically directed at blacks. We have overly rectified those inequities, which we are ashamed of, for the most part.
There were even laws enforced against illegal immigrants, with both Presidents Eisenhower and Truman rounding up "Wetbacks," as they were innocently referred to back then, and sending them back to lawless Mexico.
As all mere mortals eventually rebel against establishments, so my Vietanm/Woodstock generation thought that the old conservative, Christian way of doing things was too fuddy-duddy and restrictive, so the libs of old led the country from a more orderly society into what we have today - The Eve Of Destruction - as they continually knock down law and order as they have want to do for the past 40 years. From telling children they can disobey parents and teachers to urging women to destroy their firstborn children by abortion, along with no-fault divorce and other contrivances, the libs have been on the march to destroy families, God and country. The Devil would have it no other way.
Even as the socialists/communists plunge us deeper into chaos, politically, socially, economically, and spiritually (See the United Council of Churches more concerned about faux saving the planet's environment in lieu of saving souls), we have yet to catch up to the "we don't need no stinking badges" lawlessness of the country of Mexico.
Maybe Mexico got a bad start because it was inhabited by blood drinking Aztecs before the Spanish arrived. Mix the two - Spanish and Aztecs, and you have an empire which not even the Roman Catholic Church could help - Mehico! Is there anything wrong with Americans being thankful that we had WASPish forefathers as opposed to the ascendants of the Bronze empowered La Raza people, who love to demonstrate their Mexican pride in the streets of America - as they condemn their new found country of the United States? Maybe most of us are just to proud to be proud of our European/Christian roots. Its certainly unthinkable that we could be thankful for not being descendants of those blood-drinking Indian/Spanish folks, right?
Long before we in the United States learned about the border wars, where you have drug banditos on the take from the local police, who are on the take from the Mexican army, who are on the take from judges and prosecutors, who are on the take from prison officials, who are on the take from their Mainstream Media, who are on the take from immigration officials who are on the take (to the tune of billions of dollars) from our own United States Government, there always existed massive corruption in Mexico,unlike the U.S. where our corruption has ebbed and flowed, especially flowed under predominantly Democratic administrations. Mexican regulation of business is so lax few world investors will invest or capitalize in Mexican businesses. The Courts and Jails are a sham, and don't dare vacation in Mexico City, population 21,000,000, as one sorry friend of mine did. He got mugged in the U.S. Department of State apartments he was living in. And, that was a "secure" area!
Mexico does enforce, rather strictly, one particular set of laws, and that is their extremely cruel and prohibitive Immigration Laws. Yes, for all the bluster we hear from Mexico and U.S. liberals about America's draconian immigration laws, look at a few of Mexico's immigration policies:
From DailyCaller.Com An illegal immigrant who sneaks into the country, or fails to file his papers, will face fines, jail, deportation, or a combination of the three.
- An illegal immigrant who forges his documents, or falsifies them by lying when he fills them out, will face fines, jail, deportation, or a combination of the three.
- An illegal immigrant who takes a job faces fines, up to six years in prison, and deportation.
- All immigrants must provide proof of their legal status if the authorities demand it. Failure to do so will result, once more, in fines, jail, deportation, or a combination of the three.
From other sources - Even legal immigrants cannot become involved in politics nor own property in Mexico.
And finally, Presidente Calderon bragged before the very forgetful U.S. Congress that, "Mexico did not take any taxpayer money to bailout Mexican banks." Possibly, Calderon and U.S. Democrats conveniently forgot about Bill Clinton's 40 Billion dollar Bond Bailout which saved Mexico's economy back in 1995. Up to that time, Mexico had never repaid emergency loans. Do you think Mexico paid back anything on the Clinton Bailout? Here's a record of Mexico's reneging on loans going back many years http://www.heritage.org/Research/Reports/1995/01/The-Bailout-of-Mexico-A-Costly-Mistake
