Con-Annexation

Why Texas Shouldn't Join The States

Main Reasons

Manifest Destiny

Do we really want another slave state?

Texas is a southern state that belives in slavery, if we annex them then they will throw the balance off and we will have more votes for slavery.

We do NOT want to pay off their debt!

Texas is nine million dollars in debt, if we annex them then we will have to pay off their entire debt, do we want to pay off someone else's debt after recovering from an economic depression!

Mexico Is Not Happy

We WILL Go To War With Mexico

Mexico used to own Texas ,and I don't think that Mexico would be happy to find out that we took Texas.

Manifest Destiny

Expansionists must understand that we can do without Texas, we can get to the pacific ocean without going south to Texas, we can go up North instead.
