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...
A state of the south-central United States. It was admitted as the 28th state in 1845. Explored by the Spanish in the 16th and 17th centuries, the region became a province of Mexico in the early 19th century. Texans won their independence in 1836 after a gallant but losing stand at the Alamo in February and a defeat of Santa Anna's forces at the Battle of San Jacinto (April 21). Denied admission as a state by antislavery forces in the U.S. Congress, the leaders of Texas formed an independent republic that lasted until 1845. Austin is the capital and Houston the largest city. Population: 17,059,805.
The Lonestar State, The State that still believes that criminals should be punished, Home of the Wataburger, home of Southern Hospitality, HTown, And Everythang thats bigger and better.

Home to Dr. Pepper, several modern and well respected singers, activists, and the like, Sam Houston, and other great men and women before him, numerous plantlife and animals, and a few horrid idiots who give the rest of us a bad name-ie: George Bush.
The biggest and baddest state of them all(15 states can be put into Texas and we'd still have 1000 miles left) where everything is bigger and much better than places such as California. Home of a Ranch bigger than Rhode Island,the home of trunk poppin, Dr.Pepper,home of the first word spoken from the moon which was Houston,home of swangin on 84's and vogues, chopped and screwed music, SA Town, D Town, and H Town which are all 3 in the top 10 most populated cities in the U.S.
The Lone Star State was the only state that was its own country, and the only state worthy of even making a definition of.
If you aint a Texan, you wish you were.
