The difference is we have shown the capacity to learn and evolve beyond the injustices of the past.1. Claim to protect "US citizens" in Mexican state of Texas
2. Support guys like Sam Houston, send troops/support for local rebellion
3. Texas declares independence from Mexico
4. Joins USA
Read Texas v White.first the u.s.g. uses force to stop its own citizens from seceding, now it is trying to force people outside its borders to remain under a State they dont want to be part of?!?!?!?!?
hate andrew jackson with a passionIn short, Andrew Jackson and Sam Houston conspired for Texas to win its independence from Mexico and then join the United States. Jackson could not send troops into Texas without spawning a war with Mexico. So Jackson did the next best thing, he asked his friend Sam Houston to go to Texas.
