TX Congressional Dist. 17 Election 2006 Post 4
Van Taylor vs. Chet Edwards
…it is very true that I threw up my cap for liberty with great ardor, and perfect sincerity, but very soon found the folly of it. A hundred years to come my people will not be fit for liberty. They do not know what it is, unenlightened as they are, and under the influence of a Catholic clergy, a despotism is the proper government for them, but there is no reason why it should not be a wise and virtuous one.

The Mexican government is now only two elections into the establishment of a second political party since these words by Santa Anna doomed the Mexican people to a future of despotism. A one party system invites cronyism and corruption and is hardest on the poor and powerless. Van Taylor will work with President Bush to promote a foreign policy that gives stability and continuity to the 2 party democratic system now just beginning to emerge in Mexican politics. A strong democratic/republic government in Mexico is in the best interest of the United States and the best way to halt the need of illegals to leave their homeland in order to provide for their families.
