Annex You Back

GlennReynolds has proposed, that rather than submit to the reconquistas, we should annex Mexico. His rationale is that if we were to cede the southwest to Mexico, we would be innundated by immigrants at the new border. Mexico is dysfunctional. There's no reason they shouldn't be as wealthy as us except for a variety of kleptocratic aspects of the ruling clique. The political culture is causing the problems that make people want to come to the US.

My counter-proposal is that we should let Mexico annex us, but they have to swallow the thing whole. I suspect that most of the toxic aspects of the Mexican culture would get ironed out pretty quick, and our food would get better.

I do have to agree with you about the food getting better (maybe we could finally ban Lutefisk?)...not so sure about the toxic aspects of Mexican culture/politics though

Oh, ya gotta have faith. Can you imagine the political energy of the US being funneled through Mexico City?
