    Since two other threads of this heading have been started, I believe as a patriotic Americian I am complelled to start the official " PRESIDENT MARTIN VAN BURNEN BASHING THREAD"

    Click on for info about this President.

    President Van Buren did not want Texas to join the Union! :tear:

    Remeber this thread is only for bashing - no postive remarks - if you think you must, than you can always start your own thread.

    Van Buren help form the Free Soil Party.
    It was preceeded by the Democrat Party and succeeded by the Republician Party.

    How can we bash van Buren -since he helped form the Free Soil. From the Website:

    PHP:
    [The Free Soil Party contended that slavery undermined 
    the dignity of labor 
    and inhibited social mobility, and was 
    therefore fundamentally un
    -DemocraticViewing slavery 
    as an economically inefficientobsolete institutionFree Soilers 
    believed that slavery should be contained
    , and that if 
    contained it would ultimately disappear/PHP]
