Make Mexico Great Again!

As a pronounceable acronym, MMGA sounds rather primitive.

Oh well.

Pondering this old post wherein it was suggested that open-borders progressives move to Mexico and become Mexican citizens, something new occurred to me.
(My open-borders progressive friends) should move to Mexico, become Mexican citizens and spend their lives working to make Mexico better.

I'm not being facetious here. I really mean it. By moving to Mexico and becoming citizens of that great country, all of their time and effort would make Mexico a better place and they would be serving the needs of poor Mexicans every hour of every day. No more half measures. Go all the way and do what you feel called to do, my brothers and sisters.
I cannot think of a single border-control conservative that would not look upon such an act with sincere admiration and support. It's how we religious fanatics feel when we talk to people who work in the missions in third-world countries. I've met some doctors who spend months at a time working in Central American hospitals. I couldn't care less about their politics, those guys are awesome.

Therein lies the slander heaped upon advocates of border control. If we hated brown-skinned people, we'd laugh at those who work in foreign lands. "Ha ha," we'd say. "You fools are wasting your time on der untermensch when you could be here in America toasting Trump in a beer hall!"

It's not race, it's citizenship.

So why the slander? If we hate each other, we'll be more likely to vote to keep the other side out of power.

Just remember, change happens when ordinary people get involved and ordinary people won't get involved without proper motivation.

What a stunning photo. Somehow the photographer has managed to capture the haughty derision and smug superiority of both of them as they lecture us ‘deplorables’.

Except that the quote is a lie. Here's what he said; "This is where I learned that change only happens when ordinary people get involved, get engaged, and come together to demand it," added Obama. Sort of undermines your conclusion.

Heck, even if I think something is a fool's errand-- total pacifism comes to mind-- someone living by that principle is impressive.

Since I think Mexico could be saved, and aware of how much work goes into keeping it a selection of gang-controlled kingdoms, I think it's even reasonably possible. (Which is WHY they spend so much time sending people who might do something to the US!)
