Drug Cartel Control on the Increase in the United States.

The US shares nearly 2,000 miles of border with Mexico, a country that has witnessed over 100,000 drug-related murders in the last six years alone. The "war on drugs" continues to fuel this violence, and it is America's silence on the matter that allows cartel activity to cross the border into at least 1,300 of our cities. To be sure, drug cartels are now a dangerous presence on the U.S. side of the border.

Despite our political leaders constant reminders of the dangers lurking around every corner from terrorists in countries--Iran, China, Pakistan-- half a world away, they never mention the very real danger that is literally in our own backyard. American citizens--especially in rural areas-- along the border from California to Texas are experiencing a slow but steady rise in drug-related violence and intimidation.

The obvious answer is to legalize drugs and de-fund the cartels, thereby reducing their enormous power, however, that will never happen, because it will also de-fund our ruling class.
