    ...Annex Mexico and make it the 51st state. It's a win-win situation. We get access to Mexico's oil fields...we no longer have to worry about the Border Patrol stretching from the Gulf of Mexico to the Sea of Cortez...the maquiladoras just south of the border would have to come into compliance with US labor and environmental laws...Mexican workers would get a instant pay raises to match the wages of their US counter-parts...The flow of drugs along the US-Mexico border would cease...It's the perfect solution!

    Bully, can't say I disagree with you, but how what do you think Fox will think of this solution?

    I actually agree with you. the mexicans wouldnt have to travell all that way to get to the US just to ruin New MExico's, Texas', Arizona's and all the other southern states economies.

    We could chop it up into 3 or 4 more states actually due to its land mass. US direct influence would then reach all the way down to central America. California would release alot of its population sprawl back into Mexico. The mexicans would become legal citizens and would then be regulated by the same laws that we abide too. No more scooting by without paying taxes.

    It also decreases our land to land borders tremendously. More sea borders but no more illegals scooting through on foot undetected. Will help in the WOT.

    I say lets do it.

    Everyones stealing my idea:p

    It would decrease the length of our souther border significantly. And there are plenty of opporunities for investment if we did.

    The one problem i see is the langauge barrier.

    I'm FORCED to agree with you. I've often thought of just that myself. But, we both know it'll never happen.

    Probably as a concession for them entering we would institute bilingualism in schools.


    And while we're at it let's annex our neighbours to the north too. :dev3: Seriously, they've been griping about wanting a say in our elections. Let's give it to them. :rolleyes:
