"Be it resolved by the Legislature of the State of Texas, that any attempt on the part of the Congress of the United States to interfere with the domestic and internal policy of the States or Territories is unwarranted by the constitution of the United States… We deny the right of the Congress of the United States to pass any law prohibiting any state, that may hereafter be admitted into the Union, from coming in either with or without slavery… The just and equitable mode of raising evenue is to levy a tariff on the ad valorem principle, for purposes of revenue as contradistinguished from the protective policy… We consider the War with Mexico as necessary to the vindication of our national honor…".

"... The policy of affording adequate protection to the capital and labor employed in the production of domestic manufactures has at all times been asserted by the legislatures of this State, and received the the undivided and hearty concurrence of their constituents… the tariff on imports enacted by Congress, August, 1842, was well conceived and adapted to afford such adequate protection… We protest against the introduction of slaves, upon any terms, into any territory that is now pervaded by it… we cannot but lament the waste of treasure and life which has hitherto atended a contest waged to no valuable end…".
