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!

A gringo sneaking into mexico does so at great peril, mexico has the immigration enforcement the US does NOT have the balls to enact. Mexican jails suck amigo, but sneak away if ya love em so much.

Since March 1, 2010, all U.S. citizens including children have been required to present a valid passport or passport card for travel into Mexico. While documents are not routinely checked along the land border, Mexican authorities at immigration checkpoints approximately 20 to 30 kilometers from the border with the U.S. will often conduct vehicle and document inspections and will require valid travel documents and an entry permit or Forma Migratoria Multiple (FMM). All U.S. citizens entering by land and traveling farther than 20 kilometers into Mexico should stop at an immigration checkpoint to obtain an FMM, even if not explicitly directed to do so by Mexican officials. Beyond the 20-30 kilometer border zone, all non-Mexican citizens must have valid immigration documents (FMM, FM2, FM3)

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.

They have sneak road blocks set up here all the time, and I always have my papers or I face major problems and certain deportation. I worry about these blocks because I do not know if it is a Narco, criminal or Police block. Either way it is scary because if the police need some money and they sense they can get it from you, you will have a problem. I have had things planted on me and have had to pay mordida. Once $200 for doing absolutely nothing wrong. But if you do not pay it it can get worse if you test them and have to go to jail on trumped up charges.

My wife is Mexican. Almost all my friends here are Mexican. These are not racist remarks. These are truths. Even the Mexican people can tell you what it is like and the fears they have of the above stated.
