Pay attention to annexing strategies

Let’s suppose for a moment that Mexico decides to “annex” Texas. After all, Texas was once a part of Mexico. A large population of ethnic Mexicans would be delighted to actually live in Mexico, so long as they don’t have to relocate. Our president might “impose sanctions” against Mexico, or even freeze certain economic assets, except that so much money in Mexico is concentrated in the drug cartels, who, I understand, don’t necessarily use banks. Anyway, we mustn’t violate the terms of NAFTA. So maybe the rest of the United States will just sort of let things slide, and let it happen, since Mexico’s leaders have thus far shown little interest in areas other than Texas. This new, larger Mexico could be renamed Texico, which might prompt a certain oil company to change its name. Should New Mexico, or Arizona or California be worried?

    Mackenzie has summed it up beautifully! We're not only #50 among the States or comparably to a Third World nation, we are a banana republic headed by someone with delusions of the scope of her powers. What is still amazing is that the governess actually spent time in law school--did she attend class?

    Let the GOP take her as a vice-presidential candidate. She's no Sarah Palin, but she can probably "see Mexico from her house."
