That's not for you to decide, you can have an opinion, but neither you nor

Mexico is a debtor nation because of multi-national banking interests,
these families frequently have many children so they have more hands to
work to try to get out of work, the theory being that once they are past
the first few years years that they primarily consume they will start being
productive to the family.

Research has shown time and time again that the most effective (and

jobs, not handouts.
