It is true that Mexico and Central America are home to a wide variety of resources. You're wrong, of course, we don't have horses here.If you have all of Mexico's starting land plus Central America (or at least El Salvador), I'm pretty sure you have all the resources in the game somewhere in your territory besides silk, which you'll have so much oil you can spare a bit to build a synthetic silk factory late game.
But you need immigrants (because Mexico is empty), and those gold rushes really help.
Good luck against Texas (and the other Mexican rebels), and be sure to edit the save file to rename the Houston province after Santa Anna instead of that dirty traitor Sam Houston.
Either way, the premise behind your post is correct, and by the end of the game, the Texans should be assimilated one way or another, regardless of whether I'm able to take and keep Texas. If I don't get them, the Americans will.
