“Republican leaders promote the importation of future Democratic party voters! It’s suicidal. …If present trends continue, the GOP is headed for permanent minority status.” -Allan Wall
You lived in Mexico many years. What can Mexicans teach us about preventing voter fraud?
The Mexican voter registration system is a good one. It includes several elements. One is a government-issued registration card with name, fingerprints, and a holographic image. Also, at the voting station the poll workers have a book with a photograph of every voter in the precinct, which they can compare with the card and the voter’s physical appearance. After voting, each voter’s thumb is smudged with ink to prevent repeat voting.
This is a better system than exists in most U.S. states, which have very slipshod voter registration systems. Ironically, whenever photo voter ID is proposed, the usual suspects, including Hispanic activists, get hysterical about how bad it is. So why don’t they criticize Mexico’s registration system which includes photo ID as an important element?
How does the Mexican consular system rally Mexicans in the US vis a vis US politics?
Mexican consulates carry out all sorts of brazen meddling in the U.S., and we let them get away with it. Many legal Mexicans in the U.S. are dual citizens, and some vote in both countries. Of course, some illegal aliens are voting, after all, our registration system is so slipshod that it’s not a difficult accomplishment. We have to understand that Mexico considers all people of Mexican descent in the U.S. as Mexicans. It doesn’t matter if they are legal or illegal, or even U.S.-born, to Mexico they are Mexicans.
How strong is the “reconquista” mentality among Mexicans?
The “reconquista” doctrine does exist in Mexico, and has been openly applauded by certain Mexican intellectuals. Of course, the Mexican government doesn’t openly promote it. But it doesn’t have to. The Mexican government just pushes for open borders and full benefits for all Mexicans in the U.S.
Any reflections on 40 million abortions since Roe v. Wade and the fact that Americans feel like foreigners in their own cities-foreign tongues and foreign flags to be seen and heard at every turn?
I don’t think there is a certain amount of people that we need in the U.S. and I don’t think we need any more workers. The economy just has to adjust itself to the population. Right now we have 14 million Americans out of work so we need no immigrants, legal or illegal. As for abortion, it is indeed a great crime and a blot upon our nation. It’s possible that God is punishing us in various ways for this and other sins. One way I think that God punishes individuals and nations is simply to let us continue the imprudent practices that we are engaging in, which carry with them their own punishment.
Geert Wilders was asked at a conference in Boca Raton, Florida about Europeans replacing their Muslim immigrants with Latinos. He jokingly offered to swap them if we´d take foreign Muslims off their hands as part of the deal! What is it about westerners who are anxiety ridden about “expelling undesirables” abuse?
It is ironic. Western nations (outside of Latin American) have achieved the greatest level of prosperity and freedom in the world and yet they seem determined to commit collective suicide through mass immigration and multiculturalism. You see it in the U.S. and Canada, in Australia, in the UK and in Western Europe. And of course, the Third World colonists flooding our countries are all too eager to take advantage of it. I’d like to see one of our countries stand up to this, it’s be a great example to the rest.
Why are Mexicans so viscerally Democrat in their voting?
Well, Mexican politics does not have a tradition of limited government. Even the right-wing party in Mexico is, by American standards, economically liberal. Mexicans aren’t coming to the U.S. for freedom, and they don’t want limited government. They want government benefits. So they are mostly going to vote for the Democrats. It’s not because Republicans are anti-Mexicans or treat them badly. Mexican-Americans are mostly going to vote for the Democrats. Now, if the GOP leadership wanted to help the party, it would campaign for an immigration moratorium. Instead, Republican leaders promote the importation of future Democratic Party voters! It’s suicidal. I’ve only seen one major Republican who seems to get this – it’s Rand Paul (not Ron Paul). If present trends continue, the GOP is headed for permanent minority status.
