Two More Good Reasons to Annex Mexico
By: Erik Rush
In my newly-released book, Annexing Mexico: Solving the Border Problem Through Annexation and Assimilation, I outline an in-depth and quite feasible plan for the peaceful annexation of Mexico and the use of resources already present there (rather than U.S. taxpayer dollars) to bring their infrastructure, education and economy up to U.S. standards over a ten-year period. Yes, initially some presume Iâ€™m off my rocker, but after familiarization with the plan itself, many skeptics have come around to admitting it is not only sound and viable, but a saner, more straightforward proposal than anything on the table right now.
It probably wonâ€™t surprise that some of the most positive feedback has come from first and second-generation Mexican-Americans, either.
As Iâ€™ve maintained during the barrage of interviews that have followed the bookâ€™s release, itâ€™s likely that the hardest sell will be power brokers in the U.S., and the Spanish-descended behind-the-scenes oligarchs in Mexico. Yet, in Annexing Mexico, I enumerate a myriad of solid reasons why such action would be a good idea (such as control over the current border area and international waters, truly fair opportunities for economic cooperation, national security and energy independence), and why it is indeed a win-win plan.
What I didnâ€™t expect to see was more good reasons revealing themselves on a regular basis.
Obviously with the current Bolshevik control of our congressional leadership, Iâ€™m apprehensive with respect to anything good in any area of American politics getting accomplished anytime soon, but inasmuch as the positive feedback Iâ€™ve received amongst average Americans has been bipartisanâ€¦ who knows?
Due to the corruption the squishy, sickmaking far-Left has had upon our system of jurisprudence, Border Patrol agents Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos are sitting in prison. That they were railroaded is understatement; the Japanese Shinkansen (Bullet Train) couldnâ€™t have done a better job. For those who believe that their convictions were the result of fair jury trials, think about some of the mass miscarriages of justice that used to take place routinely in America as a matter of course (i.e., regarding minority suspects) and the recent Duke Lacrosse case, for example, and you have an idea of what Iâ€™m getting at.
So, New Reason Number One for annexing Mexico is obviously the fact that not only has our government refused to uphold its constitutional obligation to keep our borders secure, but our legal system has become more concerned with the rights not only of illegals â€“ but the worst of the worst of illegals.
New Reason Number Two: On March 24, 2007, WorldNetDailyâ€™s Jerome R. Corsi reported that two illegal aliens are suing imprisoned Texas Deputy Sheriff Gilmer Hernandez for injuries suffered from shell fragments that struck them as Hernandez shot at the tires of the van they escaped in whilst avoiding a traffic stop.
â€œâ€˜Jimmy Parks, defense attorney for Hernandez, told WorldNetDaily the lawsuit â€˜has just become standard operating procedure down here on the border,â€™ according to Corsiâ€™s article. Parks said he was not surprised by the lawsuit and expects â€˜the illegal aliens are going to sue for millions in this case.â€™â€
So now we have the worst of the worst of illegals having figured out that we are a pathologically litigious nation with trial lawyers who are not only sufficiently prepared â€“ in the interest of idealism or greed, take your pick â€“ to squeeze settlements out of police officers and (obviously) the law enforcement agencies that employ them, but to create an environment of such intimidation that there is ever-decreasing motivation for the Border Patrol, sheriffs and police departments to do their jobs.
Of course, this will result in more criminal illegals running roughshod over the law â€“ and, more importantly, folks in border states, incidents of which are occur on a daily basis but are downplayed by the propagandist porcines in the employ of ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and their corresponding pals in print.
Criminal illegals now know that all they have to do is provoke law enforcement to fire upon them; some drug runner or smuggler gets an owwie from bullet fragments or running his vehicle into a ditch and theyâ€™ve essentially won the lottery. A trial lawyer will claim that their civil rights were violated, paint them as missionary workers, and the victim organization loses at trial or capitulates with a settlement.
Which, to add insult to injury, is ultimately paid out of taxpayer funds. More to add to the list of economic liabilities the current situation poses to the U.S.
I know: The idea of annexing Mexico is ultrameganuclear radical. It seems even less attainable with a Democrat Congress and apparently only one Republican congressman from Colorado willing to take a stand on border issues. Still, there are ways to pull it off; the proper economic and political pressure from U.S. power brokers, spurred on by the electorate (and guys like me), combined with the threat of those who are champing at the bit to re-ignite Marxist revolution in Central and South America, and the Mexican oligarchs just might cave, knowing theyâ€™d be the first to be purged.
Still think Iâ€™ve gone off the deep end? Wait until you hear my ideas for neutralizing Iranâ€¦
