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.

Texas A place that we are all very jealous of and wished we lived in.

A place with suburbs filled with houses that look exactly the same as far as the eye can see.

Where the people are all thirty-two stone and there are no sidewalks, because nobody walks anymore.
Fat Texan grunts at six in the morning as his daily heart attack wakes him up.

He goes down to the kitchen, devoures eighteen slices of bacon, four eggs, thirty-seven pancakes and a liter of Dr. Pepper.

He then puts on his cowboy hat and his boots, puts on his belt with the obnoxious belt buckle that is shaped like Texas and puts his gun in the holster.

He then walks out the door, determined to make it to the bottom of the driveway to retrieve the mail...walking...walking...

halfway down the Texan fails as usual and collapses into a grunting heaving heap.....

Don't mess with Texas.

Chea, it's a good state. We say our state is the best because we love our state, like stated earlier, if you don't support your state, then leave it. You can't say Texas sucks, because it doesn't. It might possibly not be the best, but tied with Cali, but you can't say it sucks.

"Most(not all) of them have at some point worked on a farm, gotten drunk and gone a hunting, dragged black person behind their truck, and skipped work to watch a football game on TV."

Biggest city in Texas is Houston, Houston is a urbanized city, so it's not near any farmland. We have 3 more huge cities in Texas, which are urbanized and far from farmland. Every state has people who get drunk. Ever been hunting? It's pretty fun. Every state has racists, and our state is one of the most diverse states, so must of us are tolerant of other people, and the greater majority of people in Texas are friendly. And trucks are awsome! I really want a Ford F-150. Is bigger not better? Say that when you smash your porsche into an F-150 and you car is a pancake, when the F-150 has a fenderbender. And every state watches football. And look at the Houston Texans... obviously we can't be obsessed with Football or we would be the best. Oh ya sorry, forgot about the Cowboys!

"guy2: didn't some guy burn an american flag on the steps of the capital once?"

Chea, he was a communist. He was Anti-American. With Connecticutt born Bush leading our country and giving Texas a bad name, who wouldn't want to be Anti-America? Just playing, America is great, our leader isn't, there are screwed up people everywhere, and there are people who hate us everywhere, so 1 guy doing 1 thing in our state doesn't make our state suck.

also... its the best looking state geographically.

Only problem with Texas, we are under Oklahoma, and above Mexico, and left of New Orleans. New Mexico is pretty cool though. So we got screwed by geographic location.
New Mexico is what keeps Texas from leaving the US

The 28th state in the union, that means 666/28=23.7857143, the exact amount of hours in 1 day, (not 24)creepy

Texas is the antithesis to California. Texas is full of hicks who think that being cool is dressing up in cowboy hats and boots just to do non-cowboy activites. See Drugstore cowboy. Its citizens also think it is cool to wear the state colors wherever they go (who really does this). Go there if you only want to time travel, I.E. turn back the clock.

Fuck Texas and everyone who wants to go there/is from there/and anyone who thinks its cool. Deep in the heart of my ass.

Don’t mess with Texas. The Lone Star State. Was once part of Mexico then became its own country then became a state in 1835, causing the Mexican War, then became part of the Confederacy then back to the U.S. Part of the Bible Belt. The state where everything is bigger: the road signs are bigger, billboards are bigger, boobs on broads are usually bigger, people are bigger or fatter, and big SUVs. Texas is just too dam big, period. It’s the 2nd largest state by area, covering some quarter of a million square miles in the southern/southwestern U.S. with 263,000 square miles. It could fit several Midwestern states in its vast territory. It takes about 13 hours to drive on I-10 from El Paso to Houston or vice versa and about the same amount of time from Harlington/McAllen to Amarillo. The drive, no matter which way you go, is dull and mostly flat with not much of a change in scenery, unless you are close to El Paso, which looks like Arizona. Texas is so big that El Paso is closer to San Diego or Los Angeles than from Houston and Houston is closer to some areas of Florida than from El Paso.

Texas is also the 2nd largest state by population (22,000,000) and growing quickly. Austin is the capital and 17th largest in the country, while Houston is the largest city and 4th largest U.S city, but Dallas-Ft. Worth is the largest metro area. Other large cities include San Antonio, El Paso, Fort Worth, Arlington and Corpus Christi. Texas has three cities alone that have more than one million residents: Houston, Dallas and San Antonio—the most of any state. And these three cities are among the top ten largest American cities. Houston is the largest single city and home to NASA and the Johnson Space Center, numerous energy firms, petrochemical manufacturers and one of the largest medical centers. Dallas is a major financial and high-tech center, San Antonio is, well.....only known for the Alamo and that’s it. Nothing special otherwise about San Antonio.

Because Texas is so large in area and population, it is very diverse. Texans come from all walks of life: suburban soccer moms, whitetrash, hillbillies, hicks, rich oil magnates, inner-city gangbangers, cattle ranchers, cowboys, Bible thumpers, farmers, poor Mexican migrants, anything and everything. Diversity is also found in its economy. It has the 2nd largest economy in the nation after California. Houston is the country’s leading energy center and was built on oil. It also has more energy firms than anywhere else. It’s also the home to NASA and the Johnson Space Center. Houston is also a major medical center, thanks to the University of Texas Medical Center. And the Houston area is the country’s leading center of petrochemical production. The Dallas-Ft. Worth area is home to many financial and insurance firms, high-tech firms (Texas Instruments and Dell Computers) and transportation and trade (American Airlines and Southwest Airlines). Austin, the state capital and 4th largest state capital by population is in a class all by itself. It’s a major, hip college town thanks to the University of Texas at Austin. Austin has frequently been ranked among the “youngest” ,“coolest”, “most educated”, “weirdest” and “most fit” cities in the country. It’s the “live” Music Capital of America and it’s recent slogan has been “Keep Austin Weird.” San Antonio, the 3rd largest city (unofficially 2nd largest according to 2007 estimates), is not known for much except for the Alamo and Riverwalk. El Paso is nothing but a craphole. Some areas like Laredo and Harlingen/McAllen are among the poorest cities in the United States and populated by almost nothing but illegal immigrants and Mexican migrants looking for free handouts. These two areas are two examples of everything that is wrong with our federal government not enforcing immigration law. Not surprisingly, they were ranked among the poorest and worst metro areas in the country to live, according to the Places Rated Almanac of 2007.
I honestly wouldn’t mind living in Texas depending on location. Wheather you love it or hate it, Texas unarguably is the epitome of state pride.

The lone star state, a state with a soul of a nation. A state that doesnt give a fuck what yankees, hicks from colorado, or faggs from Califronia think. The population of Texas is on the rise. This states economy is in boom. So all the dumb teenyboppers from boring states that watch queer mtv and think their real smart better shut the fuck up. George Bush is embarrasing and a dumbass so fuck him and dont stereotype us. Texas is on the rise so as for those other states we dont give a fuck!
Stereotyping is a sign of ignorance.

Howdy! I am from Texas and I make big motherfucking bucks!

I am Texan before american!
