With 60,000 dead, Mexicans wonder why drug war doesn't rate in presidential debate

Both parties work for the Feds. That's a scandal of the Feds. (D.O.J. committed "Operation Fast and Furious") So both parties dare not touch it.

Because it's an AMERICAN Presidental debate, so the candidates tend to debate issues that are most important to the American people.
