I feel that the close race in Mexico just proves that the polarization in all democracies runs deeply with no solution in sight! The days of "agree to disagree" with the solidarity of the nation first and foremeost in importance is eroding. Stricter rules against crooked high up authority officials that have been voted into power will do no good; the culprits have to vote on them and approve them.
It's a sad commentary, but I (along with others) have no trust in our national leaders all the way down to our elected county commissioners! Thank You, Gayle Hamblin, Pensacola, FL
