why do we need the united states?
because of the texas revolution we went into debt over a million dollars, this debt has limited us as a republic and if we join the united states then they will pay out debt for us. we also need the united states because we do not our own military for protection; if we join the united states then their military will protect us. we also need the U.S because we could use their postal system and money system.
Why did it take texas so long to annex into the united states?
the treaty of 1824 failed to get the total 2/3 of the votes, so we tried again with just a joint resolution tat only needed a simple majority of the votes to win. because the joint resolution needed less votes it passed and got Texas into the U.S as a territory.
