Absolutly not

Here's a little history for you anti-American crowd. And meccos lovers, too.

After the Mexican war of 1846-1848, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed giving the Mexican government $15,000,000 of 1848 dollars, retiring their $3,250,000 debts to American citizens and making all Mexican citizens living in the acquired territory the ability to become Americans if they wanted (about 8,000 families). Most took America up on the offer.

AND to complete our short history of the U.S. -Mexican border history- The Gadsden Purchase bought what is now the bottom of Arizona and part of New Mexico for the purpose of a southern railroad route to California At a cost of another $10,000,000 in 1853 dollars.

So now if you don't mind, I'll enjoy our Manifest Destiny with my preferred spirits without an Absolut worldview
