Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo

The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, officially Treaty of Peace, Friendship, Limits and Settlement between the United States of America and the Mexican Republic.

Is the peace treaty signed in Guadalupe Hidalgo between the U.S. and Mexico that ended the Mexican–American War (1846–48). With the defeat of its army and the fall of the capital, Mexico entered into negotiations to end the war. The treaty called for the United States to pay $15 million to Mexico and pay off the claims of American citizens against Mexico up to $3.25 million. It gave the United States the Rio Grande boundary for Texas, and gave the U.S. ownership of California, and a large area comprising New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and parts of Wyoming and Colorado. Mexicans in those annexed areas had the choice of relocating to Mexico or receiving American citizenship with full civil rights; over 90% remained.

And WE DONT FIGHT WARS FOR FREEDOM. We fight wars for OIL, so what have your poor people accomplished ? Helping tyranny in other countries since WW II ?

You cant solve poverty by importing it, you can only solve it by treating the cause not the symptoms.
