  • Economics and Defense

    Economics and defense. China, the U.S.'s #1 trade partner, is building up its military at an alarming rate, and seeking to grab territory. They're even making islands in the middle of the sea, near the Philippines, for military bases. Why? Russia, our old foe, is also looking to enhance their military capabilities. They've grabbed territory in the Crimea, and Putin has made idle threats towards the west, including the U.S., who are trying to stop their aggression. Obviously these nations are stuck in another time when building a strong nation-state was the way to go, but in today's world with global economies and shared interests, humankind should be moving away from the type of nationalism that leads to chasms and war, and towards a global community that works together for the common good. If the nations of North America were to join, an economic powerhouse could be created and help to push the rest of the world towards a new world order. Not in the scary, conspiratorial sense, but in the sense of humans evolving to be less violent and more caring towards each other. This idea is an easy target for mocking by simpletons because it's a complicated matter, but so wasn't the idea of putting a man on the moon. Plus, I love Mexican women! :)

  • Yes! Mexico - the 51st State!!!!

    It makes enormous sense since it would be a Win-Win for both the USA and for Mexico. Geographically, it makes sense and it would be much easier to stop illegals from coming across the very small border at the bottom of Mexico. Also, our Government could stamp out all the drug cartels that are running Mexico now and eliminate much of the illegal drugs that have been coming into our country and destroying our young people. The people of Mexico would probably THRIVE as US citizens under the protection of the USA,
    and it would certainly solve the illegal immigration problem currently going on. The tax revenues alone would help improve everyone's quality of life. No that I am a big supporter of taxes, but at least if Mexico was a state, then there would be no more need for people to evade becoming citizens and paying taxes along with the rest of us. Mexicans are very hard working people with some very strong family values. They would bring a lot to the United States of America. - Denise

  • Of course Mexico should join the USA !

    Many of us from the USA are having to travel there anyways as many big bussinesses are moving there and others going to Mexico from other parts of the world , It would be stupid to not let them join as they have a lot to offer. If you ever been to Mexico at the airport you will see that Mexico is already just like another state as people go back and forth from the USA to Mexico and from Mexico to the USA it would be like going to TEXAS, CALIFORNIA, etc. Mexico has many educated people and it would not take long to adapt to the USA Mexicans already adapt in places like CALIFORNIA AND TEXAS and other states almost all of them have become PRODUCTIVE members of society .

  • Yes, the United States and Mexico should align into an conglomerate of balanced authority. However, I consider this a double-edged sword.

    Both the United States and Mexico have a long history of separate language and culture. But putting such differences aside, of all our possible futures I don't believe integrating with a neighboring nation should be considered unfavorable. Same government, rights, schooling, healthcare, currency, and military would further connect both our great nations, not divide us. Our children's children would eat under the same roof, play in the same parks, attend the same schools, serve under the same military, and die under the same flag. I ask you, is a united and secured future so terrible to you that now you'd stomp out the ambitions of two great nations from living together as family? In the end, majority vote would still hold sway in all our government dealings and what's susceptible for everyone. I Long Await The Future Continental Government of America.

  • Yes, the United States and Mexico should align into an conglomerate of balanced authority. However, this remains a double-edged sword.

    Both nations have a long history of different religion, language, and culture. But in all of our possible futures, integrating a neighboring country isn't so bad in the long run. Same Government, Health-care, Schooling, Military... We'd be United and citizens of equal standing. In the end, Majority Vote would have the final say in all of our government dealings and what's susceptible for everyone. Long Live and God Bless The Future United Nations of America.

  • New Yorkers, Texans, and Mexicans?

    I think be good thing to have Mexico join the union.No one going to rip their identity away in the process.We as the U.S as a country might be thought all the same people but still diverse.You cant say a new Yorkers the same as a Texans for example. But you cant turn mexico into a state in a day either. In the right policy and long term plans you could turn mexico around into a strong state and it people and part of the U.S..But that just me.

  • Yes, if it means more bilingualism.

    If Mexico joins the U.S., more people may learn Spanish, more resources, and more labor. Of course, Mexico is in a lot of debt, but we can finally learn Spanish. Maybe Americans may finally learn Spanish. Also, more resources may be added so that businesses may use it, will more money may be spent on renewable resources. Finally, we could get more labor. More people can get jobs so that we may compete with countries like India and China. All of these are benefits that out way the risks.

  • Economy and resources

    Our economy can greatly increase and it will really help with new workers. Mexico has plentiful amounts of resources and it can really help the U.S. Mexicans have a rich culture and we can be a very good use in wars and provide each other with what we need. No more money has to be spent on border patrol. It can be use instead to strengthen our military, pay back some of the country's debt, and go towards the kids education.

  • Of course they should, if they were interested.

    No matter how you shake it out, Mexico's future has always been bound up with that of the United States, to the point that they somewhat (completely) shielded us from Napoleon III's "Grand Plan for the Americas" which went into effect while we were duking it out with ourselves over the Peculiar institution. It's possible that if not for the fifth of May and the sacrifices the Mexicans made for their own freedom, the Confederate States of America would still be a thing, likely under the thumb of the French. And now we're freaking out because people can move back and forth over a very artificial and permeable border, and the "War on drugs" has generated a black market that the poorer country's more enterprising citizens can exploit. Additionally, there is one morally unambiguous use of the hyper-militarized police in this country, and that would be crushing the Mexican cartels, provided we're using them within our borders. They spend so much time kicking in doors over the substances some of our citizens self-medicate with, that one would think they'd be an easy sell on going to the source and kicking some ass.

  • Of course not!

    Mexico only produces a 3rd of our GDP per capita, we would be losing extreme amounts of money by annexing a nation like this in to our nation. Who would even ask or agree with this? This is absurd, we already are in economic trouble, we don't need to help out 100 million new people.

  • They Shouldn't Join

    Mexico can survive on its own. They just need to make better decisions on how they go about doing things within the country. To be completely honest with you, I don't think this will ever happen. The United States does not need Mexico. We can survive on our own and they have little to offer.

  • U.S is running out of resources

    While Mexico has plenty of them (gas, oil, woods, etc) and is taking advance of the available labor, see statistics, lots and lots of businesses are migrating to Mexico due the availability of qualified less expensive labor. Here in Mexico seems like the government is changing the laws to align with the U.S laws, we have cheap medical care, education is for free, some of the best universities in the world for free and now all that is changing! I am so worried about that, I want to raise my children in their own country with our own culture identity and nationalism, the idea is scary and nonsense, we do not need to bring more racists to our own country! (note: I have very close american friends living here and they are so gentle and nice, but most of the poor educated Americans have problems with racism)

  • Mexico is an independent country.

    Our cultures are way too different. What language would we speak: Espanglish? Here in Mexico we have a strong sense of nationalism and a lot of us see the USA as an imperialist and abusive country (especially towards us), the idea of imposing your culture to our Nation would be unbearable for most Mexicans.
    ..... If today is racism a concern in New Mexico, Arizona and Texas, the only thing that you may create with union is a huge Latino ghetto. I recommend you worry about problems in Spanish speaking regions of your country, when only by looking like a Mexican you could be automatically in a trouble.

  • Mexico Shouldn't Join United States

    There's no reason that Mexico should join the United States. The country has its own economic and social problems that would only make things worse in the U.S. itself. Mexico can't even keep its citizens in its own borders, which means that the United States should remain separated from Mexico.

  • No, they shouldn't.

    While I'm sure the Mexican government would love to merge with the United States, there really is nothing for the US to gain by committing to such a union. Mexico is rife with problems and has nothing to add to the rest of America. We are better off alone from them.
