    Gee, the Mexican economy is so good - we can thank NAFTA, our Republican Congress at the time and the Clinton WH.

    A strong Mexican economy is good for the U.S. Frankly, that will help reduce the number of illegal aliens from Mexico, Central America and South America from coming into this country... a prospect I thought you relished.

    And I don't understand the title of this thread... Why is it a bad thing for Texas?

    Of course there are a few radicals that would like to take over part of the USA. But having lived in Mexico, I know for a fact that the majority of Mexicans would NOT want to take over our country, because they know that if they did it would not be long before it was no longer a land of promise or beauty.

    Ah yes, the old trick of presenting the most extreme members of a society as being the mainstream.

    I'm a native Texan and have been a resident of Texas all my life (although in several parts of the state). I know many people of Mexican ancestry (who were born United States citizens) and quite a few people who emigrated here from Mexico. Not one of them has ever expressed any interest in "taking back" Texas.

    How much time have you spent in Texas?

    How many people of Mexican heritage are you friends with?

    What makes you think that rogue Web sites on the internet are a good source for "facts" about the intentions of a very large and diverse ethnic group? :)

    “I have proudly affirmed that the Mexican nation extends beyond the territory enclosed by its borders.”
    Former Mexican President Zedillo

    “California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn't like it should leave. Every constitutional office in California is going to be held by Hispanics in the next 20 years.” People who don't like such demographic changes “should go back to Europe.”

    Mexican American Legal Defense Fund founder Mario Obledo
    (Incidentally, Mr. Obledo was also the California Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare under Gov. Jerry Brown.)

    “I may not live to see the Hispanic homeland, but by the end of the century my students' kids will live in it, sovereign and free.”

    Charles Truxillo, a professor of Chicano studies at the University of New Mexico

    “Chicano and Chicana students of Aztlán must take upon themselves the responsibilities to promote Chicanismo within the community, politicizing our Raza with an emphasis on indigenous consciousness to continue the struggle for the self-determination of the Chicano people for the purpose of liberating Aztlán.”

    Taken from the Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán (MEChA) — Constitution of National Organization
    Aztlan is the Southwestern U.S.

    “Aztlán belongs to indigenous people, who are sovereign and not subject to a foreign culture.”

    Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán (MEChA)

    “We have recognized that the Mexican population is 100 million in Mexico and the 23 million who live in the United States. ... We are a united nation.”
    “We are betting that the Mexican-American population in the United States ... will think Mexico first.”
    “Mexico knows where it wants to go even more clearly than the United States knows where it wants to go.”

    Mexican Immigration Commissioner Juan Hernandez

    A June 2002 Zogby poll of Mexicans found that 58% of Mexican citizens believe that southwestern America is rightfully the territory of Mexico and that Mexicans do not need the permission of the U.S. to enter.

    Yup, the State of Fear is alive and well on the Baptist Board.

    Actually, I enjoy this stuff :).

    Who is going to get us first? The big bad Mexicans or the big bad Muslims? It would be nice to have the commies back so we could be afraid of them too. Oh, yeah, then there are the big bad liberals as well.

    Out of curiosity, do you have reliable sources for your quotes Cutter with page numbers and such? I would love to see the context of these statements.

    The Irish for example also claim that being Irish goes far beyond the national borders of Ireland. Maybe they are going to take Boston?

    Or maybe it will be Rev. Wright and the big bad black people who want to destroy their own country. And let's not forget how the big bad Japanese are taking over Hawaii! Or perhaps it will be the big bad Cubans in Miami. Oh no....We are going to be taken over by brown people and black people and yellow people! :laugh:

    It seems some folks need to recall that childhood song...."Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight".

    BTW, love the comment about Boston, C4K! :thumbs:

    One more kibbitz: the vast majority of the U.S should be titled to the Amerinds, who were here long before the yellow hairs, and white eyes, and Imperial Mexico. The present state of affairs in the Southwest is probably related to Sam Houston not putting Santa Anna to the wall (without a blindfold), not long after Alamo. The Mexicans were in Texas before the Gringos--they took it from the Indians too. Infiltration by Latinos is not limited to Mexico and Central America. I know of many in Northern Wisconsin--they came from the South of South America. Not sure about the authenticity of their green cards. I know many legals(?) disappear from the job site when the INS comes around. Some are skilled many are not. Many are eager to learn and not afraid to work long hours. The system is out of control. What now? Stock the Rio Grande with man eating crocodiles and then an electric fence.

    Just saw a newsclip about a Latino(illegal)tomato picker who jumped the fence at age 19. He is now a renowned brain surgeon(legal). I seriously doubt the INS can filter the good from the bad. Do we still have Castro's criminals incarcerated?

    Selah,

    Wow, personal attacks on two people with one sentence. You are the master of the ad hominem. Too b ad you can't make a lucid point to support your statements, so you just resort to attacking people.

    It also speaks volumes that neither C4K nor I have attacked you, but this seems to be your usual immature M.O.

    Ah yes, ad hominem, the last and final answer

    I notice there is no documentation for your quotes that anyone can check for themselves.
