Is The Fix In For Mexico?

Although there will be an election in Mexico on July 2, the outcome may not be what the voters want, or the country needs? Why? "Millions of poor Mexicans have been threatened with exclusion from health care and social assistance programs if they do not vote for various candidates.... others, in mostly rural areas, have been given cash payoffs of $40 to $60 for their votes."

One study faulted Mexican president Vicente Fox's government for not taking a more aggressive stand against coercive practices, and that "there has been almost no effort to prosecute public officials for vote-buying or coercion."

It's sad that the fledgling democracy in Mexico is in the grips of "Your Land Is My Land" Fox who is so interested in shaping our laws to favor his illegal alien invaders in the United States, rather than enforcing his own laws and improving his own country.

But we can't be too quick to point the finger. Our own election process is in question too, perhaps broken. Our elections may have been stolen in 2000 and 2004. If both democracies are to survive, elections must be honest and laws enforced.

The stakes are high.... and el Presidente Bush and Fox are in no hurry to either reform election processes or to enforce U.S. immigration laws.

Bush and Fox, two unscrupulous power-brokers swinging their democracy-wrecking balls.
