#1 That's the Mexican ambassador. Look at those eyes. That's the look of a dishonest, crooked, black-souled piranha. I'll bet she's part of the trade.

#2 Fine, total closure of the border, any attempted crossing taken under immediate interdiction fire. No cash transfers allowed to mexico at all and we will stop selling their government weapons. Any mexican national in this country gets 6 months to leave, after that, summary execution. No US support for their oil industry which will collapse fast. In 5 years, we offer the northern states of mexico the chance to be US territories and eventually states. Eat it once piece at a time.

#8 I subscribe to the early Roman method of expansion. Make it clear being part of Rome is better than not. Make them Romans. Then you don't need to oppress people.

#9 There is no supply without demand.

#10 Yes but when you kill the suppliers and flog the users in the public square, demand won't be so great. Oh and require drug testing for EVERY profession, constantly:) I have to get tested for my job, I see no reason why other people shouldn't as well.

But every stage of drug production, transportation and selling should carry a death sentence. End users get the whip and public shaming. If we are going to have a 'war on drugs' lets have an actual war.

#11 You guys are delusional. People will always demand drugs, food, and sex. The people of the USA have through their representatives decided that exchanging money for many drugs and most sex is illegal.

So all that stuff is going to be supplied by Mexico or Canada. For example, we pushed all the meth manufacturing out of the US to Mexico by limiting the availability of sudafed. That choice is preventing American first responders from having to deal with chemical burns. Which is good. Yet we complain that the Mexicans build big meth factories and ship the stuff in to the USA.

If we bombed all their factories and secured the border, then we would get domestic meth production again and put our first responders back into hazard.

We need to think carefully about how we manage supply and demand here. We could test all the sanitary sewers for drugs, find the users and kill them. Or we could decriminalize drug use and production. Or some intermediate approach. But please take a moment to think about the second order effects. These second order effects are what repealed prohibition; so, be more thoughtful about this very real problem.
