Odysseus....I'm pointing this forum out to you specifically since you said you are considering living in Mexico. Years ago I considered buying a place in Mexico and I thank God I did not.
Baja can sugar coat what's happening in Mexico all he wants. The hundreds of people living down there who post on this forum tell a much different story.
Here is just one. http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=52944
Pretty common to get hustled by the police. http://forums.bajanomad.com/viewthread.php?tid=52510
It's funny that a poster would even justify it by saying "You should know better than to carry money in Baja".
What is happening in Mexico is the direct consequence of covert US foreign policy -- implemented by the CIA.
The only way that the huge amounts of drugs can move into the US is with the CIA's approval.
The illegal drug trade is allowed to exist -- and is managed -- why?
For a number of reasons one of which is that the large US banks -- and I mean all of them -- have come to depend on drug profits for liquidity.
An estimated $500 billion to a $trillion in drug money is laundered through US banks every year. No one knows the actual number -- 99.9% of it escapes detection.
The way to end the violence along the border and recover our civil liberties is to make cocaine, heroin and pot legal.
