    Not so much Canada, Australia and especially Mexico.   Our economy currently supports a huge number of their citizens, whom I happily embrace. However, the addition of the drug cartels to our "social expenditures" isn't even on the books as such.  Former Mexican President Fox's lobbying for pro-drug laws that helps the Mexican economy seems to be working out quite well for them.

    We need to think about the USA and let them take care of themselves.  Just my opinion.

      And, believe me, I agree. We should bring our entire military apparatus home and stop terrorizing the world for free. If they want to be terrorized, they should pay us to keep doing it.

      And so forth.

      In the case of our trading partners, however, they are concerned that our abrupt budget cuts and tax hikes will cause us to buy less of their exports -- which means they will buy less of ours -- and more Americans will be out of work, which will depress our economy which will depress theirs.

      As for the drug cartels, they are run by our big banks, our intelligence agencies, and our defense contractors. It really has very little to do with Mexico, except for the opportunity to sell them weapons.

      Just my opinion, of course ;-)
