I'm going to point to Mexico's current election campaign. Why? Well, in all the debate about closing borders, no one's actually gone and looked at Mexico itself. Here we have a Leftist (Populist) candidate vs. a Rightist (big business) candidate, very plainly so, and with all the dirt slinging, neither is able to focus on how to strengthen Mexico's economy so that people don't feel the need to run across the border.

I just don't understand the whole "strengthen our border" crap, to be frank. Strengthen the country behind the border, and the problem goes away. It's really that simple. But with elections like that, I fear that Mexico isn't close to getting there ... And in that light, I hope the populist guy wins.
