Then ask yourself.....why is it that Texas is the only "State " can fly state and union flag at the same level on individual flag poles ??????
Juan Santos Echevarria (1 месяц назад)
But remember.... Texas can separate from the union when ever. ....don't believe me ????

Galactic Tuna  Actually, there is. Texas owns all of its own land and is the only state in the union to do so. Should Texas desire to leave the Union, the United States has no legal ground to stop it.
Galactic Tuna (1 месяц назад)
Juan Santos Echevarria There is no legal basis for a state to secede from the union. The U.S. Constitution (A4s3) has a procedure for adding new states or subdividing existing states--both require Congress to consent. But there is no procedure, at all, in the U.S. constitution for a state to secede. A state cannot legally leave the union. A group of states tried that once, it ended very badly for them.

Roger Enright Santa Anna and the Mexican Government weren’t racist. It’s just you Americans wouldn’t stop coming to Texas so he had to try to scare you away. The Mexican government was nothing but fair with Texans but they wouldn’t assimiate, bought slaves, and just didn’t listen to Mexican law.
Gamer Hex (2 месяца назад)
Roger Enright lmao you dumb American, you want to talk about crimes against Humanity? Slavery, Civil rights era, treating Blacks like property and non human, Manifest Destiny thinking it was Gods plan for your to infest North America like a plague, the slaughter of Indians, your war of greed with Mexico, nuking Japan, sticking your nose into Latin American and assisting dictators or helping groups like the CONTRAS slaughter Central Americans, your destabilizing of the Middle East, and your Racism. Southern Slave owners, Polk, Jackson, Truman, and many others are probably in hell for what they have done.

Roger Enright the US will be dealt with the way it should have been long ago. You can’t honestly believe your country can go around messing with other countries and get away with it. If my country is getting Karma because of what Aztecs did wait and see what kind of Karma the US will get, 100x worse. Your mistreatment of the Indians, Mexicans, Middle Easterns, Blacks, other Latin Americans, your racism, it had all lead up to your demise. Now go cry yourself to sleep :)

Albert Tapia, oh, really. As if the Mexicans weren't "greedy invaders". What the hell do you think the Mexica were? You know, the original Mexicans? All they did was rape, murder, steal, and take sacrificial victims from the people around them. All the natives of the Southwest hated Mexicans and routinely raided and killed them because that's what the Mexicans did to them. Fool. I'm glad the Mexicans were trounced and slaughtered at San Jacinto.

One thing not mentioned is that most of those white American immigrants were in Texas illegally; only a few were legally admitted.

Quintin Outland (2 месяца назад)
What was also omitted was that the "fever for independence" started with Tejanos and the empresarios wanted the Constitution of 1824 reinstated. The fever grew as word spread of "mistreatment" in Texas by the Mexican government. So most showed up to fight, not carve out a living. To compare then to now is apples and oranges.

Roger Enright (6 месяцев назад)
Philpott Kentucky, maybe it wasn't mentioned because it wasn't relevant? How could you actually KNOW "most" of those "white American immigrants" were in Texas illegally when the documentation for that doesn't even exist? Get real. Not to mention that the Mexicans were in Spanish territory "illegally" by their way of looking at things. They also don't mention in this video that the Mexicans wanted white Americans (illegal or not) in Texas to keep the hostile native tribes under control - something Mexico never could do....because illegal Mexican immigrants pissed off lots of Indians there. More than the Mexicans could fight...so, get the dirty "gringo" to do it for them, huh? That's what they get for being too wimpy to win any wars against foreigners of all types.

Although I realize this is an extremely condensed version of the reasons for Texas Independence which necessarily omits many facts, the facts that remain are skewed at best. Stephen F. Austin was indeed born in Virginia, but he was raised in Missouri and considered himself as such. I also have a real problem with your caricature of him: he was always clean shaven, whereas you have him looking like a conquistador. The colonization of Texas was not his idea, but that of his father, Moses Austin, who died in 1821 before he could realize this dream and asked his son to see it through. The Mexican Constitution of 1824 was written in such a way to allow the colonists certain freedoms they enjoyed in the US, mainly because outlawing slavery, for example, would not be profitable for the Government's new reliance of cotton. Your video makes it seem as though Texas colonists wanted to be a part of the USA from the start (key word there), which is false. By the time the Texas Revolution got underway, Zacatecas and other regions of Mexico were also revolting against the increasing tyranny of Santa Anna. Austin was very diplomatic on his trips to visit officials in Saltillo (the government of Texas was removed from San Antonio to Saltillo when Santa Anna felt Texas should be a part of Coahuila, which was another complaint) and Mexico City, he was met both willingly and as a traitor, even though he was following the Constitutional law and the agreements of colonization. Also, as mentioned below, the Alamo was a failure, even though it bought time, that was not the intent. Sam Houston sent Bowie to the Alamo with orders to destroy it after Neill defeated Cos at the Seige of Bexar in December 1835. Neill convinced Bowie it would make a great defense. The Republic of Texas declared Independence on March 2, 1836, while the Alamo fell on the 6th. On April 21, 1836, Texas won its independence by defeating Santa Anna at the Battle of San Jacinto. The Republic of Texas survived 9 difficult and turbulent years, largely due, in my opinion, to presidential term lengths which were limited to two then three years, but no immediate succession. Sam Houston and Mirabeau Lamar were as different as Obama and Trump, imagine back-to-back short terms like this and one would understand the mess. This situation and similar ones went on for nine years of Texas being a recognized republic by virtually everywhere but Mexico. Texas needed a fix, and although the long standing idea was Texas' admittance to the Union is well known, Andrew Jackson wanted no part of it as it would allude (rightly) that he wanted Texas all along, so when Polk became president, Texas soon became a state.

Helen willis, you should be more careful what you read and what you say. Lots of people around the world would get violent with you for calling their ancestors "scum" like that. I could call YOU "scum" for being so openly ignorant and disrespectful. The Texas Revolt had everything to do with a brutal dictator trying to terrorize and push the Texans around - just like he did successfully with the Mexican natives of Yucatan who revolted there at the same time. I don't think you really know what you're even talking about, to be perfectly honest.

Helen willis Not true A common assumption to explain the cause of the American Civil War was that the North was no longer willing to tolerate slavery as being part of the fabric of US society and that the political power brokers in Washington were planning to abolish slavery throughout the Union. Therefore for many people slavery is the key issue to explain the causes of the American Civil War. However, it is not as simple as this and slavery, while a major issue, was not the only issue that pushed America into the ‘Great American Tragedy’. By April 1861, slavery had become inextricably entwined with state rights, the power of the federal government over the states, the South’s ‘way of life’ etc. – all of which made a major contribution to the causes of the American Civil War.The South was an agricultural region where cotton and tobacco were the main backbone to the region’s economic strength. The area relied on exports to markets in Western Europe and the class structure that could be found in the UK, for example, was mimicked in the southern states. The local plantation owner was a ‘king’ within his own area and locals would be deferential towards such men. The whole structure was portrayed in ‘Gone With The Wind’; a strictly Christian society that had men at the top while those underneath were expected and required to accept their social status. Social advancement was possible but invariably it was done within the senior families of a state, who were the economic, political and legal brokers of their state on behalf of the people in that state. Within this structure was the wealth that these families had accrued. It cannot be denied that a huge part of this wealth came from the fact that the plantation owners oriented the work on their plantations around slave labour. As abhorrent as it may be to those in the C21st, slavery was simply seen as part of the southern way of life. Without slavery, the economic clout of these premier families would have been seriously dented and those they employed and paid – local people who would have recognised how important the local plantation owner was to their own well-being – simply accepted this as ‘how it is’. When the dark clouds of war gathered in 1860-61, many in the South saw their very way of life being threatened. Part of that was slavery but it was not the only part.The North was almost in complete contrast to the South. In the lead up to April 1861, the North was industrialising at a very fast rate. Entrepreneurs were accepted and, in fact, were seen as being vital to the further industrial development of America. You did not have to stay in your social place and social mobility was common. For example, Samuel Colt was born in Connecticut into a relatively poor background. He had an inauspicious start to his life but ended up a very rich man who left his wife $15 million in his will. Whether he could have done this in the South is a moot topic. It was always possible but most of America’s premier entrepreneurs based themselves in the North where the straitjacket of social class was weaker. Cornelius Vanderbilt is another example. Whether a man who came from the Netherlands could have forced his way into the social hierarchy of the South is again a question open to debate. The North was also a cosmopolitan mixture of nationalities and religions – far more so than the South. There can be little doubt that there were important groups in the North that were anti-slavery and wanted its abolition throughout the Union. However, there were also groups that were ambivalent and those who knew that the North’s economic development was based not only on entrepreneurial skills but also on the input of poorly paid workers who were not slaves but lived lives not totally removed from those in the South. While they had their freedom and were paid, their lifestyle was at best very harsh.While the two sides that made up the American Civil War were apart in many areas, it became worse when the perception in the South was that the North would try to impose its values on the South. In 1832, South Carolina passed an act that declared that Federal tariff legislation of 1828 and 1832 could not be enforced onto states and that after February 1st 1833 the tariffs would not be recognised in the state. This brought South Carolina into direct conflict with the Federal government in Washington DC. Congress pushed through the Force Bill that enabled the President to use military force to bring any state into line with regards to implementing Federal law. On this occasion the threat of military force worked. People in South Carolina vowed, however, it would be the last time. It was now that slavery became mixed up with state rights – just how much power a state had compared to federal authority. State rights became intermingled with slavery. The key issue was whether slavery would be allowed in the newly created states that were joining the Union. This dispute further developed with the ‘Louisiana Purchase’ of 1803 whereby Kansas, among others, was purchased by the federal government. Kansas was officially opened to settlement in 1854 and there was a rush to settle in the state between those who supported slavery and those who opposed it. The state became a place of violence between the two groups and Kansas got the nickname ‘Bleeding Kansas’ in recognition of what was going on there. However on January 29th 1861, Kansas was admitted to the Union as a slave-free state. Many in the traditional slave states saw this as the first step towards abolishing slavery throughout the Union and thus the destruction of the southern way of life. When South Carolina seceded from the Union on December 20th 1860, the first state to do so, it was a sign that the state no longer felt part of the United States of America and that America as an entity was being dominated by a federal government ensconced in the views of the North. Whether this was true or not, is not relevant as it was felt to be true by many South Carolinians. The secession of South Carolina pushed other southern states into doing the same. With such a background of distrust between most southern states and the government in Washington, it only needed one incident to set off a civil war and that occurred at Fort Sumter in April 1861.

Helen willis When the Anglos were first allowed to settle in Texas the Mexican government let them bring their slaves with them. Mexico City did try to limit or abolish slavery but each time it was repealed because of harsh resentment from the Anglo Texans. Now you can say that some Texans did revolt because of slavery but that wasn't the main cause of the Texan Revolution. Texas was so isolated from Mexico City that it pretty much had it's own government in place already.

buzguy123 I think that you are the one reading bad history, the Civil War was about slavery. Every state that left the union statement of succession was full of statements about defending property and slavery. Look at the words of the first southern anthem, "The Bonnie Blue Flag." The south deliberately started that war for the foul reason to not only keep slavery but expand it, just like I suspect these Texans made their war.
Сергей Бодров (1 год назад)
Helen, you are reading Liberal history books which of course will make everything about slavery, just like the War of Northern Aggression.
