We have to end the drug war, we have to stop interfering in other nascent democracies both across the Atlantic and south of our border and we need to wake up and smell the roses. We, along with Europe, are reaping what we have sown, we, during both the 19th and 20th centuries, shamelessly exploited those who were weaker and disadvantaged, all for trade, resources and cheap labor. We made a disaster of their countries, distorted their trade to our benefit and we wonder why these people come to our shores trying to escape misery in the hopes of finding something less dangerous and more constructive, only to find themselves on the receiving end of anger, racism and deportation. Instead of our politicans trying to outcrazy each other, we should be passing serious legislation to put in place that will change the structural deficiencies that have led to spurts of illegal immigration.
