Mexico reconquers California? Absolut drinks to that!
An ad by Absolut Vodka, likely do attaract a few drinkers in Mexico, might not have a great impact in the US, since the ad is in Spanish? I could not upload the image, I am sorry. I tried.
The image is here:
"Mexico, is a colorful map depicting what the Americas might look like in an "Absolut" -- i.e., perfect -- world.
The U.S.-Mexico border lies where it was before the Mexican-American war of 1848 when California, as we now know it, was Mexican territory and known as Alta California."

"The last 20 years have seen the explosion of the various multicultural myths. The proverbial melting pot demonstrably does not scale well. Immigrants are not a net positive for the service economy any more than offshoring is a net positive for the manufacturing economy. Indeed, hiring immigrant labor is simply the service equivalent of going offshore. Population diversity does not lead to positive societal effects. Instead, it reliably leads to a reduced sense of community, more crime, more poverty, more use of government services, more taxes and more government intervention. And most importantly, mass migrations do not serve to increase the American population, but rather, as Absolut Vodka's new Mexican ad demonstrates rather colorfully, spell the end of America in the territory successfully invaded and occupied by the migration.
There is nothing inherently wrong with immigration, which taken in small and reasonable doses tends to invigorate economies and societies alike. But migration and immigration are two very different things, as Umberto Eco spelled out in "Migrazioni," his 1990 essay on the subject. Historically, migrations have always significantly changed the host culture when they do not eliminate it entirely, and in light of this fact, it is worth contemplating precisely why the pro-migration American governing class is so staunchly supportive of what can only change or eliminate American society."
