The reconquest of Mexico
By Robert T. Smith
Reconquista…make America Mexico again has been the decades long chant of the leftists in many places of the southwest, especially California. It is apparently politically incorrect to notice the difference between immigration and invasion.
As gleefully reported by the Los Angeles Times recently, there are now more Latinos than non-Latino- whites living in California. Counting the ethnicity or color of noses is always the modus operandi of the Democrats. The quaint old notion of the melting pot, E pluribus unum, so that there are not hyphenated-Americans is not the Democrat party’s forte. As good leftists, better there are many competing groups bumping and banging into one another so that the high priests of the government betters can sell their indulgences to their various patron groups in exchange for votes, power and money.
The reconquest of the American southwest has a starting point that is ignored. The root problem is not United States or US policy, like build that wall, the root problem is that Mexicans need to escape the horrible country they and their fellow Mexicans have made. No creature likes living in its own waste.
Mexico has abundant economic potential. The country has significant mineral deposits, abundant oil and oil products, extensive agricultural areas with long growing seasons, beautiful scenery and resorts, etc. However, Mexico’s potential is squashed by the staggering level of corruption in its political system, law and law enforcement. Drug lords and gangs rule many areas, the law abiding are held as helpless hostage to the illegal activities both political and non-political, although in many cases there really is no divide between the two.
In essence, it is understandable that decent people would want to escape the corruption and lawlessness that is Mexico. A country is not simply a place on a map, it is a set of ideals. Clearly American ideals are superior to the Mexican ideals, and so we have the immigration/invasion of America.
Most irksome are Mexico’s leaders, the ones who are so quick to rush to a microphone or be quoted in a newspaper to voice their disapproval over any American politician who would attempt to change the status quo, like perhaps gaining control over the border between the US and Mexico. Most infamous is the mouth from the south, none other than that “bad hombre” Vincente Fox.
The former President of the corrupt Mexican government, Mr. Fox’s net worth is estimated at over 10 million dollars. Now why would a person so rich from Mexico’s current situation not want it to change?
Mr. Fox is not unique in his desire for the status quo between Mexico and the Unites States. The current Mexican President, Enrique Pena Nieto, has an 80% disapproval rating from his constituent citizen-denizens of Mexico, including links to the drug cartels through campaign contributions. Likely this level of corruption exists from the Mexican President down to the local Mexican dog catcher.
So why not funnel that political energy and activism into changing the homeland, Mexico, instead of demanding America change to become like Mexico, or as the chant goes a part of Mexico itself. Why not have a reconquest of Mexico, put the political and social will behind making Mexico a place where Mexicans and even others may want to live.
Imagine a future, big, beautiful wall between Mexico and its neighbors to the north in order to keep the Americans out…the reconquest of Mexico by the Mexican patriots awaits.
