I don’t understand Mexican politics because it’s not that clear cut. You’ve got the PAN Party, PRI, PRD, PT. You’ve got all these competing groups and there’s no clear lines. In the US you have conservatives / Republicans, and Democrats / liberals and it’s very clear cut. You can divide the parties very easily in the US on issues such as abortion, gun control, taxes, etc., and it’s easy. A person’s stand on the issues will determine which party he or she favors.
But here in Mexico, it’s not like that. It’s like a fraternity or a color. People say “Go blue,” Go red,” or, “Go orange.” To an American, it’s like they are more voting on colors than they are on issues and the parties don’t necessarily differentiate themselves based on issues as clearly as they do in other countries.
Mexico is a very stable country. Politically, I don’t see that as any hindrance here in Mexico. There are a lot of laws in the books regarding human rights, and so forth. The politics of Mexico is not an issue.
