    Thanks Jerry that was interesting. There is so much shady stuff in all of Mexican politics, the PAN candidate Anaya has his family living in the US for like 3 years until the moment he declared his candidacy and then brought them back. Just Google "Ricardo Anaya atlanta"- he was paying almost half a million dollars a year and couldn't account for where the money came from.

    Almost everyone I have talked to in Mexico has despised Pena Nieto since the instant he got in... It may really be 3rd times a charm for Lopez Obrador...

    Most of the so called socialistic countries in Norhern Europe rank higher in freedom indexes and also in surveys about regulation they rank as less regulated-good or bad.

    Yes, but, I have not ever been personally affected by a President except one that has pushed through minor tax increases or decreases. The one exception is obummercare which costs me about 15K a year in increased premiums and much larger deductibles.

    What in the hell do I receive for paying property taxes? Absolutely no security, pot hole filled roads, bribery tending police, rip off taxis...........screw “raising property taxes to where they should be”! I know this is Mexico but screw it, I am gone if it starts costing me more and so will be a lot of tourists.
