Annex Mexico? We're one step closer

Did you notice how easy it was to begin American military action in Libya? Sure, the president made a sober explanation—best summarized as: the current leadership is corrupt and the people of that nation need our help. It makes sense—in theory. But couldn't you say the exact same thing about Mexico? And isn't Mexican drug violence a much bigger threat to American citizens than anything going on in Libya? Hey, it's not like we haven't invaded Mexico before. It was something of a national pastime for decades. Unlike Libya, Afghanistan, or even Vietnam, Mexico is right on our border... so once we get rid of the bad guys, we could just annex it. On the plus side, that would end our border problems, since, well... there wouldn't be a border anymore. Of course, this is an outrageous notion in 2011, but the idea has been considered very seriously many times in American history—and it is being discussed again in some quarters. In fact, the only reason Mexico and Cuba aren't a part of the US right now is because the U.S. Congress of the 19th century didn't want more people of color added to the electorate. So maybe President Obama should right this wrong! Does military action in Mexico fit the Obama Doctrine? I'm not sure—even John Stewart can't figure out the Obama Doctrine. The map above shows what an expanded USA would look like.

    (1) There would be a new, shorter, more southern border.
    (2) The old border problem would much, much worse because all those people CBP has been trying to keep out are all suddenly legal residents, with a legal right to move anywhere within the 50 states!

    1. well, point 2 is about to happen anyway wit the defacto amnesty being pushed in 2013. So far U.S.A will have absorbed at least 21 million mexicans alone from just regan and obama if they go through. And thats not counting all the immigrants we dont know about.

      I think it makes sense to annex mexico. Mexico would have very little to lose and a ton to gain as corruption and violence would plunge because people are more worried about a new job/family.Americans would also flow south to mexico for the cheap labor and land.It would balance out.

  2. Thought this is the war we should be fighting years ago. Take their oil, shoot any member of a drug cartel, outlaw growing or harvesting it, reform the courts and laws, turn it into a seaside retirement resort. Give employment to millions along with construction jobs. Clean up the gulf and other pollution. Make it our 51st State..Great Idea when can we start!

  4. The reasons why its beneficial to the average Mexican citizen are already obvious, and when it becomes beneficial to the political class of Mexico to rid themselves of the corruption and violence on their shoulders in exchange for a chance at representing a happier people in Congress, I think they'll make the right choice. Once the government is on board, the main thing stopping Mexico from making the switch right now, Mexican nationalism, will be somewhat irrelevant.

    1. This cut off three paragraphs, leaving only the conclusion. I'll leave it be, but for the record I advocate for peaceful annexation after a vote by the Mexican people, not war. A little bit of propaganda when you know you're right anyway never hurt anyone, though.

  5. Yeah, I mean im Mexican and although I am I find the US to be incresibly superior to Mexico and that Mexico would really benefit from being annexed while the US with capitalism would find a way to make use of all the resources Mexico has

  6. America could not invade Mexico without sanctions from just about every nation in the world. The sanctions from China alone would cripple the American economy. The sanctions from the rest of the world would do to America what they did to Iraq. The very next election would see a change in administration and a withdrawal.

  7. It wasn't racism that prevented the annexation of Mexico and Cuba. It was anti-catholicism.

  8. China would like to do the same, take over Mexico. while the cartel and many Mexican nationalist would love to cut the heads of those who try.

  9. But if it did in fact that Mexico and the U.S. would become one, then I guess the name of the new and expanded country would have to be, "The United States of Mexico".
