Many of the houses that have been foreclosed on in Texas aren't the sort of houses rich Mexicans want ;they also are not the sort of houses the poor Mexicans can afford. This is just a futile attempt by some realestate agents and bankers to shore up the Texas housing market.

Elitists make no secret about not liking the culture of Texas to the point of wanting to remake Texas over in the image of Mexico. This was true even when Texas first gained independence. Santa Anna had many freinds among the Northern elite even though the Mexicans hated Santa Anna and he was despised all over the South west. Texas culture is influenced by its Geography. Mexicans who stay in Texas end up becoming like Texans or they move to another state in order to avoid becoming like Texans.

Didn't some Mexican family try to go to the world court in The Hague and try to force an old land grant from they're fore fathers from the 1600's? I remember reading something about it a while back. This is rapidly approaching a boiling point and people are being hurt by it. Some folks can't even leave they'e homes on the border because everything they own gets stolen. MexAmeriCanada is going to cause wholesale riots. Its not going to go smoothly if its tried!

It is well documented the reunification with the Southern Western States is on the agenda of some Mexicans. A Mexican President once said his nation "stretched beyond these boarders".

Let's not forget the immigration march that had banners declaring Southern States were "their land". Mexican flag is already flown in some towns on or near the border. If these States got a Latino majority who would they vote for; Mexican or America?

There are also some crackpot southerners who claim "the South will rise again" and fly the confederate flag. But they're the exception to southern attitudes about life, not the rule. Same with the Mexicans. They don't all want to turn Texas into Mexico pt 2.

Every Mexican immigrant I've met has come here to make a better life for themselves. If we assume this is the case for most Mexican-Americans in general, how is it logical that they would want to turn this land into a mirror of the place they were trying to get away from in the first place? It doesn't make sense.

While I do agree with some of what you're saying, this here is just completely false. There may be some billionaires living in Mexico, but that doesn't mean the country isn't poor. If you disagree, drive down to any of the border cities and tell me Mexico isn't poor.

That's the system if you don't like it, change the system.

If you don't like the concept of ownership, money and materialism, change it.

But wait, that requires that YOU change.

The Unanimous
Declaration of Independence
made by the
Delegates of the People of Texas
in General Convention
at the town of Washington
on the 2nd day of March 1836......


These, and other grievances, were patiently borne by the people of Texas, untill they reached that point at which forbearance ceases to be a virtue. We then took up arms in defence of the national constitution. We appealed to our Mexican brethren for assistance. Our appeal has been made in vain. Though months have elapsed, no sympathetic response has yet been heard from the Interior. We are, therefore, forced to the melancholy conclusion, that the Mexican people have acquiesced in the destruction of their liberty, and the substitution therfor of a military government; that they are unfit to be free, and incapable of self government.

The necessity of self-preservation, therefore, now decrees our eternal political separation.

We, therefore, the delegates with plenary powers of the people of Texas, in solemn convention assembled, appealing to a candid world for the necessities of our condition, do hereby resolve and declare, that our political connection with the Mexican nation has forever ended, and that the people of Texas do now constitute a free, Sovereign, and independent republic, and are fully invested with all the rights and attributes which properly belong to independent nations; and, conscious of the rectitude of our intentions, we fearlessly and confidently commit the issue to the decision of the Supreme arbiter of the destinies of nations.

Darn it, we have already declared our independance from Mexico!

When you have different enthic/linguistic/tribal groups sharing the same living space, you're gonna have trouble. It's human nature. Look at black/white relations in this country, look at nativos vs the criolles in Latin America. Look at Muslim vs. Hindu in India, look at Jew vs Arab in Palestine, look at Chechyans vs. Russians in Chechyna, look at Tamil vs. Sinhala in Sri Lanka, look at Hutu vs Tutsi in central Africa, look at Malay vs Chinese in Indonesia, look at Tibetans vs Chinese in Tibet, look at Indians vs Fijians in Fiji, look at Burmese vs Karen in Burma. And in the richer countries you've got Bosnians vs Serb in Bosnia, Walloon vs Flemish in Belgium, Spanish vs Basques in Spain, french-speaking vs english-speaking in Canada, Protestant vs Catholic in Northern Ireland, and now Algerians vs the French in France. Always a history of tension with periodic outbreaks of violence.

It's the oldest rule in the political book: Divide and Conquer. America cannot be militarily defeated from without, thus it must be subverted from within. Hence the forced, rapid growth of a foreign culture within our midsts.

The future? Think RaHoWa! Or at the very least, the Sharks vs. the Jets on a nation-wide scale.
