Rethinking The War Against Mexico
Where do I stand?
Reasons why I don't support the war aginst Mexico
The U.S. was the aggressor
The U.S. will just use the land for slaves
President Polk is a slave owner and therefore supports slavery. That is why he plans to use the land that The U.S. gains from Mexico as slavery land. Why should I support a plan in which slavery will be extended?
