True Story!

I would like to thank Rachel Maddow for correcting Pat Robertson. The Haitian revolt didn't result in a pact with the devil, but it did result in the French needing cash to cover lost revenues, and in Napoleon realizing that they were overextended in the west. He solved both problems by giving up on Haiti, and selling the Louisiana Territory to the US. The revolt made the modern United States possible. True Story!</p>
