European Texas?

The prospect of membership in the European Union has to some extent motivated Turkey to try to clean up its act, especially with respect to human rights abuses. If so, then the EU may be taking the wrong approach here: EU urges Texas governor to halt executions in America's busiest death penalty state. Perhaps the EU should actually offer to admit the Lone Star State as a full member on condition that it abolish capital punishment. I can't think of a reason why Texans wouldn't jump at such an opportunity.
