For any of you who aren't from Texas, or have never been there, you are really missing something great. Texas is like a whole other country, to use the tourist line. We have the 11th largest economy in the world and are at the forefront of the digital age, as well as sharing in the many different cultures in that inhabit this great state. Did I also mention that we have the best Tex-Mex food and the best beer (Shiner) and the best music?
An interesting poll was conducted a few years ago. People were asked if they considered themselves from their state or from their country (USA) in priority. Residents from 49 states considered themselves Americans before i.e. Floridians. Texans consider themselves Texans first and foremost, and Americans second (That is why I don't get involved with Boeing v. Airbus and US v. Europe)
