Trump is soft on immigration. Mexico is invading the U.S. and colonizing lands won in the Mexican-American War of 1846.
There is nothing to negotiate. The U.S. is losing control of lands won by conquest. It is rare, if not unprecedented, to return lands won by conquest such as Israel in the West Bank and Gaza. The Israelis wouldn’t do it, and neither should we. The Mexican themselves through their actions to cross into the United States are saying they prefer our governance to that of Mexico.
But assimilating 55 million people also demands more lands. Their presence is not a problem, it is their other activities such as crime, fraud, and political corruption that create problems. As noted here many times, though they comprise but 17 percent of the U.S. population they represent 34 percent of the U.S. prison population. In a word, they are expensive in total business costs, through pilfering, crime, healthcare, education, incarceration, etc., etc. They clearly add to our deficits. This wouldn’t be so burdensome but our growth rate is not keeping pace with the growth rate of servicing our debt which will be 3.1 percent of our GDP by 2016. I really think our growth will have to above 3.1 percent to begin to gain control over our national debt, which in reality is $220 trillion, when all the unfunded liabilities are taken into account, according to Laurence Kotlikoff of Boston University.
Since they have zero respect for our sovereignty, I see no reason to respect Mexico’s sovereignty and claims to lands. After all these claims are also nothing but the right of conquest by Spain. And besides, did we observe Iraq’s, Afghanistan’s, and Libya’s right to sovereignty. So why precisely should we care about Mexico that has been exporting drugs to the United States creating huge social problems here. We should take the lands that we need to assimilate this massive influx of population. Everybody stays, but we get lands as compensation. As stated before, until Mexico pays a price for shipping its problem population to the U.S., they will not stop the practice. If they lose territory, then I’ll wager they will build Trump’s wall to prevent the escape of their peasants to the United States.
Mexico is essentially a failed state like East Germany, and should be effaced and reabsorbed into the United States. To bring the rule of law to their lawless drug cartels, which is another problem for the U.S. Just as China had to wage the opium wars, perhaps we must wage the cocaine wars. That is what the Trans Pacific Partnership is really all about anyway, getting rid of Mexico. With new capital inputs of lands, labor, and American capital, the banksters can keep their scam alive for the remainder of the 21st century. And the U.S. realizes its Manifest Destiny of being the United States of the Americas. Americans like the idea of being Romans, but don’t have the courage to act like them. Unfortunately, we have crossed the Rubicon of debt and must now expand to survive. They will have to change their modus operandi or disappear into the dust bin of history.
You can accomplish it like Vilfredo Pareto’s foxes, or you can be up front about it, and be lions. Tierra del Fuego or bust! And if you don’t like this scenario of expansion to reignite growth (U.S. growth being the highest during the 19th century expansion), then the United States will have to give up their fascist ways, and downsize the Military-Industrial Complex. What’s the point of having it, if it doesn’t pay dividends, as Madeleine Albright might paraphrase. And all the unemployed Amigos will make great soldiers fighting for the empire, being a part of the 800 military bases on 137 countries around the world. Yes, America über alles!
