!70 bases worldwide. Unless we smarten up and bring them all home preparing to discharge them into the militia. No Standing Army.

Man, even Mexico doesn't want that!

Good grief, man! Think of the headaches for El Presidente when he's faced with several million obstreperous, recalcitrant, cantankerous, intractable, ornery and heavily armed Texans! He'd rather surrender to the drug gangs, believe me!

No! If we annex Mexico, the illegal immigrant problem evaporates, the US is forced to adopt universal health care, the Mexican drug cartels are exterminated... it's an all around win!
