Well, as a Texan, I guess I'll throw my two cents in...Texas is a great place to live. I know alot of people from other parts of the country think "Hicks, Rednecks, Incest, Ignorant, Dumb, ect, ect..." But, the fact of the matter is, Texas is a real diverse state, with large metropolitans such as Houston, and Dallas/Ft. Worth, and also vast areas of rural towns and farm/ranchland. Now, im a country boy, but that doesn't mean that im racist, eat possum, and only listen to country music. Ya, I do have a 4x4, and yes, I do live on a small ranch with horses and cattle and such. Plus the Cowboy boots and all that stuff, But thats just me, not all of Texas. I like all genres of music, From Rap/Hip Hop, Rock (and all subgenres that go along with it), Country, and a whole bunch of other stuff. We've got all different races, creeds, religions, and beliefs, Some of the finest Colleges in the nation, and just down right good people. Ya, the weather is pretty wild, but hey, ya get used to it, or at least I have, I cant really speak for others. All in all, some of yall just need to it thru your thick, opinionated, stereotypical heads that Texas is not what you think it is...yeah, big words huh? Well, Texas has a pretty good education system, 3.6 GPA, in a town of about 800. Just thought I'd throw that in there, for kicks.

Oh, and btw, we're not responsible for Bush, he does what he does, we cant help that, plus, hes from Conn. Blame them. and, Yeah, Our flag can fly at the same height as the Nation's flag, but as a state/prior nation, We've earned that right, so dont be jealous...
Non-Texan #1: Texas is nothing but cows, horses and Cowboys...

Non-Texan #2: Lets not forget all the Hicks and uneducated redneck racists!

Texan: Oh Yeah!? Try tellin' a Texan that, even the country ones, I bet you wont be happy with the outcome...

I've lived in Texas all my life, so I actually know this stuff.

Texas is pretty cool, things are generally bigger here, but since when is that better or worse? We are not all racist. In fact, most of us are some of the most tolerant people you'll meet (i.e. we are not all bible belters). That's just the super small towns where people aren't extremely educated. We are usually fairly friendly, unless someone else is rude first, and we will ALWAYS stand up for, and defend our own. We have lots of pride in our state, which sometimes makes other people mad, and/or pisses them off a bit.

Oh, and we don't ride horses to school or wear cowboy hats all over the place either. Maybe one in a thousand people actually wear boots, unless you're in rural texas, which is a completely different story.

We may be a bit obese, but hey, we like fried food. Lots of people do, we're just a little more enthusiastic about it here!
Texas is simply texas. If you don't live here, you don't know. Don't knock something until you've tried it! (or been there, in this case!)

The only state where it is possible for a woman who has been admitted into a mental health clinic twice for being a danger to herself and others, as well as being a recovering alcoholic, can legally gain a license to conceal and carry a firearm. This woman is my ninety pound grandmother... sure makes for a good conversation, right?
Only in Texas...

A very large state, indeed.
-Ask any child under eight there to draw the world and you will see them carefully outline the shape of texas.
-Home to the #1 and #2 most overweight cities in America, statistically of course. sounds good.
-In 2004, half of all death penalties in the U.S were sentenced in Texas. Are texas criminals somehow worse than that of all other U.S. states
-Just because the people of Texas are mainly responsible for George Bush's rise to the presidency, doesn't mean they are all like he is. However, Texas is a portion of the "Bible Belt" and is therefore overwhelmed by very conservative, religious, ignorant and change-averse people.
-Minorities, Liberals, and above all, Homosexuals beware of Texas.
-The majority of ALL U.S. hate-crimes are committed here.
-This does not apply to every person in Texas. However, take a moment and check out the posts made by its very own residents. I'd say it's applicable to most of them, as well as many people you meet from Texas.
-Texas truly deserves to be it's own country.
-Wait for the ignorant, poor-grammar, homophobic, lengthy, vulgar responses to this post-variations of the word "FAGGOT" are likely to be used. Watch how quickly and blindly these people stand up and fight for a their home state, with no factual evidence or support. Soon, some will recognize the validity of this definition.

A state with an unhealthy and somewhat pedophilic obsession with high school football.

The bi-polar state where you'll go outside without a jacket one minute and the next minute you'll freeze your ass off.
