Exclusive — Dick Morris: The Hard-Left Takeover in Mexico

Fiery leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is leading the pack to succeed Mexico's unpopular President Enrique Pena Nieto

Mexico’s presidency is going communist, following in the footsteps of Fidel Castro, Daniel Ortega, and Hugo Chávez. But Mexico is not a thousand miles away like Venezuela or tiny like Cuba and Nicaragua. It’s huge — one-third the size of the U.S. — and shares a long border with us.

In the Mexican elections, scheduled for July 1, voters are apparently going to choose an authoritarian socialist — Andrés Manuel López Obrador (nicknamed AMLO) — as their new president.

AMLO leads the field with 51 percent of the vote, trailed by the PAN candidate Ricardo Anaya at 25 percent and the PRI nominee Jose Antonio Meade at 22 percent.

Mexico is a mess and likely to get messier soon...for us.

Ummmm, no.

Pershing and 10,000 American troops spent 11 months chasing Pancho Villa around Mexico and never caught him.


Just build that wall!

Yeah, I see it as an even better reason to build the wall. If Mexico goes socialist that will drive the number of illegals up that much more.

This is a persistent problem in mexico. They alternate between kooky socialists and moderates who never openly condone capitalism.

God help the government of Mexico if they try to raise the price of subsidized tortillas to 12 cents for 100. This is one of the pernicious problems of growing up in socialism.

until jeff Bezos came along, the richest guy in the world, Carlos Slim, became a billionaire overcharging Mexican peasants for phone service.

Latin American countries have largely put socialism-heavy governments in charge throughout their independent histories. That's why they're constantly having problems.

Compare & contrast those always filled with corruption, and related shit which drags them down, to the more successful of the bunch. Those on the better end of the specturm such as Chile have rejected that tendency more often, in modern times, and it shows.
