Should the republic of Texas exist

Postby The republic ofTexas and northern Mexico » Wed Oct 28, 2020 8:25 pm

Texas, Annexed by the United States in 1845(taking affect in 1846) in recent times has had a desire for independence among a Group of people, who may in fact be the majority of Texas voters. Personally, I think it should be independent and This group should be the government of the Republic of Texas(Note: this group is not the same as the Group that held people hostage in the 1990s). However there are many other groups, some are terroristic groups, some are political parties and same are groups that sit around writing letters to State Officials(which is the one I linked above).

Here is some more links to more groups

Texas needs to be independent just as much as California needs to be - that is to say, not at all.

The current borders and political status of Texas should remain, more or less.

Sure, but I imagine it would go poorly with Mexico. I have no problems letting them self-govern unless they take it waaaaaay too far.

As for giving it back to mexico, while I see why you'd want that, I disagree.

What an illustration of "you get the government you deserve" that would be. I'm guessing Texas would make plans for an offensive war against Connecticut after somebody from Utah let their dog soil the sidewalk in Fort Worth.

Fragmenting the US in any way will only benefit its enemies. No good will come from states seceding, whether said state is California, Texas or Hawaii.

While I think the chances of this actually happening are vanishingly remote, it would be a great historical irony if Texas, which achieved separation from Mexico and its subsequent annexation to the United States on the basis of white American migration from the United States into Texas, were to subsequently be reunited to Mexico on the basis of Hispanic migration from Mexico to Texas leading to a majority of Texans supporting separation from the United States.

Again, the chances of this happening are vanishingly remote; though stranger things have happened historically.
