The war was nearly restarted in 1918. Germany was negotiating with Mexico to attack the US should the US enter the war on the side of the allies and gain back Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.
The orange blowhard was not elected. He lost by three million votes but was able to seize the oval office on what amounts to a technicality.
“Then when the US started a war to annex Mexico (which was partly successful) many Irish soldiers were sent to the front lines.”

Come to think of it, that crank caller said pretty much the same thing that you said above. Was that you?
As Congressman Mark Pocan responded to a crank caller on this morning’s Tom Hartmann show, your remote has a little button for changing channels. Use it to watch something other than Fox News. Your life will be fuller and richer if you do.
