Mexico is a true Democracy carved out of the struggle for independance and justice from when the Spaniards were first raping Mexico for it's gold and silver. Years of injustice followed by the French and the British who also had their pants down for a quick fuck only to have their ass kicked, especially the French the pussies, and then followed the US who was illegally stealing their oil for free for decades, that is until President Cardenas finally kicked the thieving Gringos out, and this after steling half of Mexico for an unjust war waged in 1847. I am very surprised as a Gringo hisotrian why the Mexicans are still our freinds and treat us so nice?? I surely would not!! One of these days they are going to get a Mexican President who will not be very nice at all and watch the shit hit the fan. History after all tends to repeat itself. The Mexican economy grew almost 4% while the US was stuck at around 1.4%. The Mexican people work very hard and are proud, but 99% of the African American population does not, and is on welfare, pay back they believe for 400 years of working for free I suppose. Unfortunately the U.S. in a state of decline and is dependant on China for it's money. The world is crumbling right around us and what do we see on TV? Fucken Lidsay Lohan that is what we see! We are dumbing down our genes and we tend to blame immigrants for everything we do wrong, they who do 99% of the hard work for shit pay and we still blame them for everything that is wrong with the US instead of facing the problem..........we are fucken broke, lazy and dumb, and support the blacks, unless we get our act together I am going to sneak into Mexico for a better life!
I live in Mexico but for love, and I have a specialized business that does well for me. You are way off track if you think you will have a better life here. Far from it. Unless you don't mind working for $11 a day of less. If you are smart you might make up to $1000 a month. If you think that Mexicans work hard here you are also way off track. I cannot get workers back to finish their jobs 99% of the time. They do not show up, they do not call. It just blows me away. When I complain to my Mexican relatives here about it, they just say remember this is Mexico.
Also remember your house will be built like a fortress. If not you will get robbed blind. You will always drive around watching what is happening around you. You will always worry about being pulled over by the police, because you have no idea what might happen.
You do not want to drive long distance on main highways because you have a higher percentage of being robbed and beaten, or even killed. I will not drive long distances here. I will only fly.
Do not loan money. It is never paid back period. Do not loan your things out or they do not come back.
Spain took the parts of the what is known as the USA from the Indians. Later on when when it became Mexico the pope gave the conquered land to Mexico. Mexico lost through war and sold some.
So Mexico killed Indians and paid for the scalps of dead Indians. They were wanting more then just the section of the now USA for themselves. Looks like the stronger people won. That is just the way it happens.
Everything here works extra slow in Government and just about everywhere. It is like pulling teeth to get anything done. If you get in the cross hairs of criminals or the government you are doomed. They will kill you. Either one.
It is also like some of the multilevel companies. They say we grew 1000% last year. Went from $1000 in profit to $10,0000. Overrated.
Saying Mexico is growing faster then the USA is a joke. The USA has reached and built a great society. Mexico even if they keep growing for many years will never become the USA. Come here and see what I mean. The people are impoverished. That is why the the illegals do not want to come back to Mexico.
I however agree with you on some of your later assessments.
