Remove President Peña Nieto From Upcoming Cover

      Tijuana, Mexico

It's been a very difficult couple of years in Mexico, more accurately, decades and Peña Nieto has done nothing to save or help the country as your cover suggets. Peña Nieto’s physical presence continues to dominate magazine covers and plague our cities with his infinite propaganda that costs billions of pesos to generate. The gap between rich and poor is not getting any smaller since the last reform raised taxes but did not raise the minimum salary which is not even applied by some companies. The reforms he is applying have been hurting the citizens economy in such a way that the middle class is in danger of extinction. The reforms are only “aiding” a seldom few, putting businesses out of service and jeopardizing the majorities income and growth. 

The vehicle through which president Peña Nieto got elected was considerably corrupt from its beginnings, the whole electoral process was designed as a TV-drama, it was founded on lies since he said taxes would not be raised. More over, he is not a peace keeper or savior. During his first year within presidency, the number of drug related deaths sky-rocketed out of control. There is an all out civil war in Michoacán that began over a year ago. Peña Nieto sent in the military last month, a year over due. And to make matters worse, the military have shot and killed civilians.

It's hard to believe that Time Magazine would take the president's word considering how his social politics have put innocent protesters in jail, ignored countless narco-related deaths all while shoving millions of pesos of propaganda down the citizen's throat in order to speed up his reforms. It’s even harder to believe that you flat-out ignored the current social situation of Mexico.

The country is not being saved, far from it. The economic affairs of the country have always been favorable, but it has never been reflected in the quality of life. Having this sort of lie on the cover of an international magazine is disgraceful. We aren't asking them to remove the article, just don't lie on the cover like that. It's a false statement, and it's offensive to Mexicans. It weakens the little power we have as a people to speak for ourselves. Sincerely, A concerned Mexican.

      It does not portrait the reality we live in Mexico. Pena Nieto is the worst it has happen to Mexico since Carlos Salinas.
