Weird, I was talking about this last night. It would be dope, the boarder would be Central America, thus making the boarders smaller. We would have cheap labor, so then we could compete with China way easier, and throughy beat them out. Plus with the resources Canada and Mexico have it would work out well. Only problem is americans would complain about it. Candanians wouldnt want to be Americans, and well Mexcians would be all about it. The only thing in Mexico that would give us a problem taking over would be the Cartels, they are the only ones who would slow us down. I'm pretty sure the Mexican Gov't would be all for this Idea. Hell I say do it. Would defintley make things a lot more interesting.
I was just thinking about this the other day: If we spend so much time complaining about illegal immigration, why not just send the U.S Army/Marines/Air Force to invade and annex Mexico? Think about the possibilities of an expanded border, not to mention an end to illegal immigration (from Mexico at least). Of course, there are plenty of cultural differences that could conflict, not to mention the problems with drug cartels (which could be neutralized by Special Forces). Again, just a thought. If the North American Union had gone through, we'd end up annexing Mexico and Canada anyway as there would be open borders!
I am in no way suggesting the invasion of Mexico.
I am just sick and tired of thread after thread on illegal immigration.
