    Anyone else following this? Front runner is AMLO, former mayor of Mexico city. He's a notch or 2 left of Bernie Sanders. There could be a disaster across the border soon.

    This is the candidate that the Mexicans see as being able to stand up to trump. He's as much a socialist as I am a Buddhist. A socialist would share the wealth of the national oil company, Pemex. That ain't happening. A socialist would create welfare programs for Citizens so they wouldn't flee their country.... that ain't happening either. This guy's plan is to fight fire with fire. He will flood the US with "refugees" from central and south America with the long term goal of having enough of them here to tip the voting scales in favor of a president and congress that will embrace Mexico and it's people, instead of being combative. Don't believe me? He's given that speech a dozen times. Just Google it. Make no mistake, his policy is that all of his citizens are Americans......... North Americans. And as such, they should be allowed to live anywhere in Norte Americano.

    See clob's Iceland quote on the World Cup article. It may be our only option if this happens.
