THE CANDIDATE called AMLO won Mexico’s presidency yesterday, big-time.
As Donald Trump won the U.S. presidency because people were fed up with the corrupt status quo, AMLO won for precisely the same reason.
While Americans chose the conservative firebrand Trump intelligently, I fret that Mexicans chose the left-wing firebrand ALMO unintelligently. Leftism is a loser philosophy that has led nowhere good countless times.
My only solace comes from the fact that AMLO was the mayor of Mexico City for a spell, and he didn’t turn it into Havana. Time will tell.
I leave you with the following quote from H.L. Mencken:
Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.
