    Mexico is currently our 3rd largest goods trading partner with well over 500 billion in total goods trade during 2016....and that includes imports and exports.... That's a lot of business and it would be a huge loss as the economies of both countries have become dependent on one another....and that isn't likely to change..... Especially as Mexico keeps progressing to become an large economic force in the Global community in coming years......

    That's what I wanted. No NAFTA. We are the 2nd biggest economy in the world. We do not need 3rd world Mexico.

    Last time I was in Mejico (about ten years ago) I was in one of their shops looking around. There were two 20 something beaners manning the shop and we were joking around with them, they liked my woman. I flipped up one of their items and asked, "Que significa hecho en china?". He didn't think it was as funny as I did.

    Private pensions are not the responsibility of government.

    I agree but then neither is providing Wall Street bankers with million dollar bonuses, neither is policing the world and of those three options I vote in favor of the private pension.

    Pensions by majority are 3 trillion in debt nationwide It's like saying you maxed out the credit line on your visa then calling your bank for a higher credit limit.
    The best you can hope for is a federal bailout. Call trump maybe he's got some advice ?

    I doubt that your numbers are accurate or credible, nothing else that you post is. Do you have anything constructive to add to the discussion?
