I agree. California, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona are Mexican lands, which we conquered from them in 1836 and 1847. Just as the Midwest is now immigrant German territory, the Northeast and Northwest are immigrant Irish territories, the southwest will soon be immigrant Mexican territory. Our nation is only 230 years old and our national culture is still forming. It took the British about 800 years to form their culture from Celts, Saxons, Angles, French, and Norsemen.
