Fox Go Home

Vicente Fox is advising the US on economic policy; this is laughable.  Mr. Fox can’t get his own economy going fast enough to keep his citizens home.  Mexico is one of the wealthiest nations in the Western Hemisphere in terms of natural resources and human capital.  It is also one of the most, if not the most, corrupt nations anywhere.  The word hypocrisy is too weak to describe the policies, laws, and attitudes of the Mexican people.  That’s correct the people because as a democracy the people are responsible for the policies and practices that govern them.

If Mexico allowed more foreign investment the stream of immigrants to the United States would dwindle to only those who really want to live here.  The best workers are leaving Mexico so why doesn’t that nation want to retain them?  It would mean that the culture of bribery, deceit, and procrastination would have to change.  Can such a thing happen?

Mexican laws against US participation in their economy are stringent and crippling.  Any American investor that behaves as he must to succeed in Mexico is most likely in violation of US anti-bribery laws and might end up in prison.  That is a risk that some take but that most won’t.  The ultra rich of Mexico and all Latin American countries do not want change.  The Patron culture has failed the nations but benefited the families of the rich.  Their biggest risk is having to pay a ransom, quite common in those societies.  The United States gets the criminals, the down trodden, the hopeful.

The USA cannot continue to absorb immigrants at the current rate.  Already the seams of tolerance are straining.  The issue is being couched as a civil rights matter; what a joke.  To compare today with the problem of whites and blacks is ludicrous.  That was a real civil rights situation and it is still being worked through.

The American left embraces Vicente Fox without criticism because they are also morally bankrupt.  Americans of the leftist persuasion are emotionally weak and insecure.  The important thing to them is to be viewed as gentle, caring people.  They are easily manipulated because most don’t really have lives of their own.  Their opinions are shaped by Newsweek and Time magazine.  If it’s in print they believe it.  It’s not far off the mark to assume that Mr. Fox will be more successful in the USA than he can ever hope or want to be in Mexico.
