    Patriotism, and necessity.

    It became a matter of State Sovereignty. The right of the State to exercise its G*D given rights to Leave the Federal Union.

    To have its people free from the Aggressive Actions of the United States.

    [The Need for the USA to maintain power over the states, alleged anti-slavery. If it was so important, why did Lincoln offer the southern states 40 years more (1900)]

    Remember, TEXAS is/was a Failed Republic of its own.

    Texas would be looking to maintain its sovereignty by aligning with its surrounding neighbours. Staying with the Union would have been detrimental to its continued existence.

    The state government voted to secede and join the Confederacy, so even though a large segment wanted Texas to secede and regain its status as an independent sovereign nation the citizens of Texas really had no choice. Either fight for the Confederacy or move north

    They were losers before the war, during the war, and after the war.
