How ‘bout this Barry: You pull back to the borders of the 13 original colonies, and we’ll govern ourselves out west. Cripes...if the French came hat in hand saying they wanted the Louisiana Purchase back, I think he’d give it to ‘em.
Indeed he would. And the southern portion of Arizona was PURCHASED from the Governor of Mexico at the time. It was called the Gadsden Purchase. So the whole "you stole it concept" is pretty much BS. ANd I can't remember the name of the US general who was sent to quell the Apache uprisings in that area who said something like, "We should go to war with Mexico to make them take it back."
Mexico didn't want Arizona at the time and were glad to be rid of it.
