Who can stop Mexico’s torture and death?by Karl W Hoffman on May. 28, 2011, under Border Issues, Uncategorized
Mexican Ranchers must leave their land or be killed by the Cartels. Drug wars are rampant with indiscriminate shootings of innocent people. Kidnaping for ransom is now common place. Whole towns are cut off, looted and held hostage, with its people brutally murdered and dying of starvation.
A small town in Mexico bands together with machetes, sticks and a few guns taken from the corrupt police. They are no match for the well armed Cartels who also control the illegal lumber business. Arizona Daily Star These towns people cover their faces and stand defiant behind crude barriers blocking the roads and are determined to fight to the death in order to save their way of life. The rapidly increasing power of the Cartels who rule by torture and violence is plaguing Mexico and it’s corrupt government. Local police and politicians are either on the take or intimidated by death are quitting or cashing in. The military, bought and paid for in many parts of the country, are used to escort drug shipments.
Covering their faces and taking to the streets, some brave citizens of Nogales Mexico march to demand an end the violence. Sadly the Mexican people wanting change are powerless and are putting their lives and the lives of their families at risk to make such a bold statement. Nogales International
While our neighbors are crying out for help what are we doing here but arguing about immigration reform, tax dollars, votes and politics. Sadly the right and left can only see their own agendas. What are the activists doing to organize and really aid the Mexican people in Mexico where no one has any rights at all? What are the conservatives doing besides flying the American flag and watching Fox News?

Nazi Germany, Mexico, and Cuba, the list goes on and on where the people of a country have been suppressed and made powerless. Here is a prime example of just how gun control works in favor of a corrupt government and organized crime. Thank God the writers of the US Constitution added the 2nd amendment so we as citizens can protect our selves, our families and our neighbors, who choose not to have firearms. You may think that it will never happen here but what if it did. With all the global fighting and destruction I would like to know that in the worst case, my grandchildren could go to the closet and dig out their grandfathers assault rifle, yes an assault rifle with a high capacity magazine, because that’s what it will take, and defend their town and their family. None of us ever think that the worst will happen but we still buy all kinds of insurance. Nice to have a little back up in the closet because we just can’t see into the future.
The United States Of America has the most liberal firearms laws on this planet and is the freest and the safest, but we have become a nation of bickerers.
Educated adults, college students, and hard workers, there are millions of Mexican people here in the United States who would love nothing more that to return to their country, rebuild and prosper in their own land with their families, but defenseless and with out help, death and destruction are their only rewards. So who will stop the violence? Maybe recognizing it is the first step to a long overdue solution.
