Greater Texas... or Rio Grande Federation? Map

Looks like it's split down the middle between English and Spanish, huh? How well do the Anglos and Hispanics get along?

I haven't figured it out. This was a quick sketch based on that discussion. But if the RGR united in the 1830s I suspect they'd get along alright by 2020. TBH, I think the split will be closer to 3 to 1 in favor of Hispanics. At the time of their independence, the southern states (Tam, NL, and Coahuila) outnumbered the population in Texas by a significant margin.. In this union I'd suspect only Brazos and Comancheria will be majority Anglo (although Brazos is likely the most populous state by far), Texas might be 50/50 and the rest might remain majority Hispanic.
