    Mexico is and has been a failed state for quite some time. Most everything that is read or view on national TV minimizes the violence and supports the Mexican government.

    The drug cartels rule and run Mexico with almost no exceptions, the police and military may have small sucesses here and there with arrests and confiscations of drugs and firearms, but they are well beyond their means of control of the country.
    Mexico’s future looks dim and it dims further with each passing month.

    We must keep calling, faxing and emailing our representatives until the get tired enough to do the right thing. Americans are being murdered – the latest, a missionary, who was shot on her way home with her husband. Washington doesn’t care. If it did, they would have brough our troops home and lined the border with them. The corrupt third world country of Mexico has declared war on us. They are winning by stealth occupation, and now by killing our citizens. And if anyone has noticed, our government stays silent and doesn’t ever demand an investigation. They are turning our country over to uneducated, poverty-stricken criminals who should never be allowed to apply for citizenship if they’ve once broken into our country. Keep after your reps until they act!
