Texas was occupied longer by the Spanish then Mexico... Mexico was in possession of Texas for only 17 years. In fact it was a largely unpopulated area after many French and Spanish left in 1821. Also a note, the US wanted the Louisiana purchase to include the inhabited East Texas portion of Texas...who at the time under the control of the French Empire under Neopolen.


and Texas has belonged to the following Nations:

1. French
2. Spanish
3. Mexico
4. Texas
6. USA

7. if you count the CSA as a nation...then Confederate States.


California is actually more "Mexican" then Texas....if anything it was "stolen" from Mexico more so then Texas....Texas was a territory that was inhabited by Comanche (and other Indians) and Europeans for much of its existence prior to becoming a US state 1684-1821...then a brief period of a Mexican Majority...until around 1823 when Moses Austins Colony flourished...to about 1845 when if officially become a State in the USA.

Geographically speaking, southern California is in the southwest.

In terms of the vegetation, it is definitely southwest.

Default Judging By Culture California Is Not Southwestern.....

The southwestern culture is not "progressive" California is very
"Progressive" therefore California is not Southwestern!!...
AZ was the lead "State" in the forefront trying to stop the
Martin Luther King National Holiday , typical southwestern
"mind set"..and I'm sure that everyone agree's.......

None of them were stolen.

Texas won its independence from Mexico in a war....very similar to how Mexico won its independence from Spain and France.

California was just the prize won by a victorious American Army over the Mexicans.


Texas has had six flags flown over its lands, and is much to large to be categorized as a part of any single region.

AZ never tried to stop MLK day. Back in the early 90's the vote to start it was delayed because Arizonans didn't want state workers to get a paid holiday for it and the introduction of a new bill was delayed long enough in the state legislature for the national media to blow it out of proportion.

Orange County and San Diego are Republican leaning areas. There was a RNC convention in San Diego not too long ago.

Plus, AZ is filling up with Californians all leaving for a better cost of living and you can never tell the difference between someone born and raised in AZ and someone from CA. The culture is the same.

By the way, there are many progressive people in AZ who are consistently outvoted.
