I am not the first to suggest this in tongue in cheek fashion. Read Erik Rush's book, which is a quick read of 100 pages or so. The statistics in his book are staggering, and yes, it is an invasion aided and abetted by the elite of both nations. Rush has a RationalWiki entry that is so critical that I like the guy without knowing anything else about him. Mexico is a borderline failed state that without the pressure release valve called America would have to deal with its problems. This has nothing to do with starvation (they are fatter than us) or misery (happiest nation on Earth). This is just the humane way to handle a situation where 40 million Mexicans live in America (Mexico population is 122 mil), with a large quantity of them living along the border and sending remittances back, propping up the Mexican economy. This also would be America embracing the reality that it is an empire and changing administration of its empire.
America would have a much smaller border to defend to the south of Mexico, and it would change how it administers its immigration problem to account for the 122 million new Americans. America could call for a stop to all legal immigration for a
The other change this would have to bring is a change in how America administers its regions. This would create a need to maintain economic consistency yet allow for provincial administration on a social level. Money is all that holds America's disparate regions together, so we could go full throttle on this and respect regional differencs while maintaining the economic beliefs of our 1%. I know this won't happen, but giving up on the forced universalism would benefit everyone. Provincial autonomy would calm everyone down. There are even bigger rewards.
On Social matter yesterday, I wrote about the DC-Sinaloa Cartel connection. There is a two prong way to dismantle the cartel's violent side. First would be mass legalization of drugs. You might think this will lead to armageddon, but no, just look at Portugal's experience with legalization for a possible roadmap. Legalization would drop the price and legitimize the cartel producers and turn them into another arm of our "just enough good stuff to use but not enough to kill you" vice products like booze and smokes. Heroin won't be how they hook you, but an opium gum that acts like Nicorette will take the edge off the long work day. Cocaine is a helluva drug, but a vape coke smoke session will help you hit the clubs. You think American manufacturing, industrialization and ingenuity isn't going to find a way to bring cocaine, opiates and weed to Americans in a safe manner? What do you think "oxy" is?
There is a second way annexing Mexico helps fight the cartels is even if you do not go the legalization route. By becoming a province of America, there becomes an arm of federal agents that represent a separate power structure, separate network of authority and separate culture of administration to fight the corruption issue. Yes, American agents can become corrupt, just look at the federal Bitcoin bandits. Strict enforcement of corruption (death if you take bribes), solid pay and unrelenting viciousness towards violent cartel members will work. This is a separate system outside the current system that will be backed up by guns and American wealth. Drones take an entire infrastructure of agents and spotters, but a military not in the cartels' pockets might be effective at stopping the violence. Hopefully, legalization would fix this like ending prohibition started the dismantling of American mobs.
This is all a thought experiment, and one that is a partly comedic, but let's talk about a very possible future for America. Yes, Brazil Norte is bandied about (here on this blog) for those who believe in slower decline, Leftist singularity is mentioned by guys with eyes on revolutions, and a US break-up is dreamed by some of us. There is a brilliant troll amongst us (he's even trolled some of #NRX) who proposes the "White Hispanics in Confederate Grey" scenario. It is similar to Brazil Norte but different.
White Hispanics in Confederate Grey
Say the economic day of reckoning comes for the dollar and living standards go through a sudden drop. How many SWPLs stay? Some, possibly many, will leave. Can't you see the Boomers who have enabled their kids tons giving them some scratch to emigrate to Canada, New Zealand, the southern cone of Souh America or even Europe? Hell, the Boomers will retire to the third world to make their meager retirement savings go further rather than change their dumbass lifestyle. This goes for Jews too who will probably high tail it to Israel as Israel hunkers down and possibly changes their patron to remain viable. Before we go further, have you looked at fertility rates?
If you extrapolate numbers out, looks to me like Hispanics and Amerikaners are your growth populations and your prime intermarriage pairing. They also are not your types to abandon America for New Zealand if the dollar tanks. They also like their groups' history. If America gets knocked down a peg economically, government services get cut back and futures look dim, the SWPLs will bail for cafes in foreign lands like a new Lost Generation (cosplay opportunity).
Who is left? Good old, prole Amerikaners and Hispanics who have been melding slowly in certain spots. Do either of those groups like blacks? No. I bet the day of reckoning for blacks would come with semi-organized violence against the dindu class. What whites would be left to cover for the dindus in the media or and non-security institutions? The assimilated black class suddenly loses their patrons (SWPL whites and Jews), and makes nice to the new order. This is a fusion Amerikaner-Hispanic order. That order is White Hispanics in Confederate Grey. Finally, America will fulfill the European held stereotype of a nation of truck driving, gun loving machismo motherfuckers. I will take it over Brazil Norte or a Leftist Singularity.
In all seriousness, the current immigration system does not work. Just securing the border would be one step. The next is handling idiots like the ebola Liberian guy better, as in physically removing and barring them from entry ever again. What was he doing here in the first place? Why do we have H1B visas when we're in a stagnant era? Why are we letting in anyone not a millionaire when we have roughly 50 million Americans on food stamps? Why did we increase our Muslim intake after 9/11? These are all great questions on their own, and they will only get worse as the economy does not have a lift off. If the feds will do nothing about immigration and watch as thousands stream in by the day, drop the pretense and annex Mexico now.
