how dare you say texas cant leave the union of ungratefulness?
the creator of presentday Texas
he wrote a constitution for the Republic of Texas
it was a nifty piece of paper
but Sam Houston and his constitution OPPOSED being annexed into the United States
Sam Houston felt it was a bad decision and that Texas should Always be in control of its own destiny
but popular public opinion won however
and no one listened to Sam Houston
and they went and Annexed Texas into USA anyway
but! since one of you stated "facts" about texas that are NOT true
i have to correct you since you obviously have never read texas history
Stephen Austin did not come to Texas to "take over"
neither did Sam Houston or Davy Crockett or Jim Bowie or Travis
they came to Texas to "Get away" from the BS in the east
too much hustle and bustle
they wanted a quiet nice life out in peaceful nice quiet Texas
once they got here
they realized there was Already a rebellion going on
between the legitimate mexican citizens and their mexican government
the american immigrants saw this already existing civil war and decided to get involved on the side that was Pro- Texas Independance
Mexican and American people fought togeather agianst the Mexican Govt to create an independant Nation called Texas
it was Not a Racist white man war geez
agian, Mexicans *brown skin* and Americans *white and black skin* fought Togeather agianst the Mexican Dictatorship of Santa Anna
and they beat the tyranny
Once they won the war they created The Republic of Texas and then a few years of nice peace ensued
there was a few 'border skirmishes' over "which river is really the border"?
but texas always won
but after a few years
some wild people appeared in this new Nation; Republic of Texas
they wanted Texas in the USA
the leaders of Texas, Sam Houston the President of Texas
said "we do NOT want to be in the USA"
but the USA knew better so they convinced all the average people in Texas to Annex into USA
so now Texas is part of USA....
the Minute that USA annexed Texas however
Mexico Got Pissed and Declared WAR on USA!!!
then the USA invaded Mexico with hundreds of thousands of calvary horses and cannons and infantry
the dragoons marched on Mexico City within a few weeks and the war was over very quickly and decisively
The USA then took the californian lands from Mexico and gave them millions of dollars in compensation $$$$
that is how america aquired the states of Texas; then NewMexico Arizona California Nevada Colorado Oklahoma
i am sorry i had to give everyone a lecture on texas history
but i am a Texan resident i was born and raised here
i have read thousands of hours worth of Texas History
i had to tell ya because that one guy was talking like he knew texas history obviously he didnt know jack
if you go to texas and say "Sam Houston or Stephen Austin was a bad evil selfish greedy murderer"
its like going to america and saying "George Washington Thomas Jefferson or Ben Franklin or John Adams were bad evil selfish greedy murderers"
it wont be tolerated!!!
Sam Houston and Stephen Austin are Texas HEROS
they are the Founding Fathers of TExas
Texans look to them for Identity
They make us feel more special for being a Texan
Texas needed a history and story
And we got One
i say Texas should Leave the USA
