“Building a wall between Mexico and the United States is a terrible idea. It is an idea based on ignorance and has no foundation in the reality of North American integration.” – Mexican Finance Minister Luis Videgaray
Regardless of how you feel about Trump, the Wall, Mexico Paying for a Wall, The U.S. Paying for a Wall, Your Aunt Betty Paying for the Wall, etc. etc. There is something extremely interesting about what the current Mexican Socialist Finance Minister has to say here.
Please re-read the words “…the reality of North American integration.”
I thought that idea was strictly the territory of flag waving, tin foil hat wearing, gun clinging conspiracy theorists.
Apparently I need to add Mexico’s Finance Minister to that list.
Allow me to ask a simple question,
Do you think the Mexican Government would feel the same way, as they seem to feel now, if millions of Americans were flooding into Mexico taking advantage of their social services, such as Welfare, food stamps, Medicaid, Medicare, Subsidized Housing, Schools, Universities, anon, while simultaneously demanding Free-Market Capitalism, a complete re-write of their Constitution defining Inalienable Rights in order to elevate the Individual above the Government, the Right to Vote (even though they do it anyway, they just want to make it official) and Immunity from all or any Immigration laws… all the while, vowing to Never Leave?
We’ve talked in the past about Socialist Countries living on the teat of American Capitalism, with Canada and Mexico being two of the worst offenders. Both Countries would find it difficult if we didn’t prop them up through accepting their workers, buying their resources, providing favorable trade policies and often direct grants to their countries.
This topic rarely get’s even a mention from our studious media watchdogs… as it should.
Well, in my opinion, it’s time to stop feeding the bears… or Gila Monsters in this specific case.
It’s time to cut off direct subsidies to those who overtly wish to destroy the Greatest Experiment in Self Rule the World has ever known. It’s time to stop allowing Socialism to survive it’s own oppressive, destructive and deadly nature. It’s time for a Revolution of Enlightenment Thinking to take place in Mexico.
Viva La Age of Reason!
Sadly however, we no longer know what that means here in the U.S. So one might ask “How do we promote such a Revolution in Thought on our borders?” The answer is we don’t. Until we get our own affairs in order, there will be no helping those most in need of it.
The Minister’s comments serve to highlight to conflict of visions… and they are also an accurate assessment of what is happening right before our eyes. Mexico is not becoming a country Governed by Enlightenment Philosophy… it is the United States which is becoming a Socialized Democracy of the likes Marx, envisioned, save the ridiculous Utopian tripe.
Unfortunately, due to our intellectual apathy and determined disregard for what is the value of American Exceptionalism, we may have already lost the battle to free the world, but more importantly save ourselves.
