Tens of millions of Americans already have cold feet...

Top Ten Reasons Why the US Should Not Marry Mexico
By Brenda Walker
January 17, 2007
You wouldn't marry your next door neighbor just because of that person's convenient location. Why then are Washington elites working to dissolve sovereignty in order to unify with a third-world sewer best known for corruption, violence, poverty, sexism and apathy toward education?
. . .
The only answer is Mexico's enormous supply of cheap, exploitable labor, which business wants to fuel the neo-slave economy of its dreams. But the cultures of the peoples of Mexico and the United States are deeply incompatible, and have a history of bad blood going back centuries...
#9 Mexican sexism ranks close to the Taliban.
#8 Crime and violence are increasing as the state fails.
#7 Lynching remains a continuing practice.
#6 Mexican dislike for education lasts for generations.
#5 Drunk driving is deemed acceptable, even considered desirably macho.
#4 Animal cruelty is no problema.
#3 Mexicans are racist.
#2 Mexican corruption is endemic.
#1 Mexicans are Marxicans.
Americans have a totally different cultural background, including a belief that progress is possible. (See Prof Lawrence Harrison's fascinating analysis of progress-prone vs. progress-averse cultures, also organized as a chart.) As Samuel Huntington remarked, "... if America had been settled not by British Protestants but by French, Spanish, or Portuguese Catholics, it would not be America; it would be Quebec, Mexico, or Brazil.""
Throughout our history, Americans have worked to improve the rule of law and expand gender and racial equality. We value scholarship and scientific inquiry. Our concept of "family values" includes educating young people for many years rather than sending them out into the workplace at age 14 or encouraging teen marriage for girls. A closer integration of the Mexican and America cultures would be completely negative for America and destructive to our tradition of fairness under law.
Mexifornication has been a step backward. The unassimilated millions of Mexicans in this country bring with them their culture's violence, disinterest in education, historic corruption and gender inequality.
On the basis of culture alone—forgetting about the drug cartels, financial cost to American taxpayers, threats to public health, the danger from political Aztlan and the normalization of treason—the idea is the worst ever to emanate from Washington.
