Would you support the idea of Texas dividing itself into 5 states?

turns out the lone star state has the right to divide under the The 1845 Joint Resolution for Annexing Texas that affirms Texas' right to divide itself into five states if it chooses. Would you support it? and if you do what do you think the new states would be called?. And if you don't support it explain why?

Texas is too proud of being Texas. They'd never split into separate states.

Yeah that was my opinion too. I was having a little debate sort of with a friend and what you said basically summed up my argument.

Bad idea if they separate it would be like the civil war and how the north tried to separate from the south into different countries

They have the right to split under the agreement they made with the federal government when they entered the union so I don't see why they would start an entire war just to split into 5 states that will still be part of the American union.

It was the only example I could think of at the time. I still think its a bad idea though.

Despite what Governor Perry says, the 1845 Joint Resolution for Annexing Texas is moot. The Civil War settled that. No state may divide or secede from the Union.

As a native Texan, I can tell you for a certainty Texas would secede before they would considered dividing -- yet can do neither legally nor logically.

Texas, five times over? Bad enough there's even one! Better the one whole state, as it is, should secede, and do us all a favor. Wasn't it once a separate country anyway?
