Hi readers. It’s time you younger readers hoisted your overalls up by the straps and increase the amount of geography the US owns. You can easily tell we don’t have enough land, that the US needs more geography, by the screaming everyone’s doing about aliens. The ones who don’t have PHDs and Asian surnames, I mean.
In 1849 our troops protected our freedom by invading Mexico, and Mexico does have a lot of ground with nothing on it but Mexicans, so that’s a possibility. Last time we protected our freedom by invading Mexico we got California, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada and maybe some other places.
But there are also some Indian reservations with nothing much but Indians on them. The only way we’re ever going to protect our freedom from those Indians is to invade the reservations and put them up for real estate development. There’s some good hunting and fishing country in some of those, along with potential for ski slopes and other tourism. Gambling casinos.
But Canada’s also a place been threatening our freedom too long and it has plenty of real estate with nothing on it but Canadians. If we ever expect to solidify our security with Alaska we need the Pacific Northwestern Canada real estate. And for all practical purposes it’s empty. Nobody much from the US lives there at the moment, which is one hell of a provocation.
The truth is though, we’re never going to feel safe invading Guatemala until we’ve got our freedoms protected in Mexico. We need International Boundaries that connect to places connected to somewhere else where there’s more growth potential.
We acquired Puerto Rico protecting our freedom in the Spanish American War, but what the hell did we get for protecting our freedom during WWI? Guam? How’d we get Hawaii? I’m trying to remember which freedom it was we were protecting when we got the US Virgin Islands, and US Samoa.
Fact is, the US has really dropped the ball. US veterans of WWII hardly gained us any real estate at all to savor our freedoms in. And we lost our freedom in Vietnam and North Korea. And all the freedom our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan protected didn’t gain one inch of new territory with nothing on it except Arabs.
Sheeze. It’s fairly clear we need to be protecting our freedoms closer to home. Starting with those damned tribal lands nobody’s been able to build condominiums on. Finish the job on the damned Indians before having a closer look at Canada and Mexico and the freedoms we need to protect involving them.
