and some of the other border cities on for size and LATINO

On appearances alone, Southern California is decidedly Southwestern. The Spanish architecture, auto-centric lifestyle, and geographical features are far more reminiscent of Phoenix than San Francisco. The real difference SoCal has from the Southwest is the culture, which is dominated by the cosmopolitan prominence of Los Angeles. However, I think the culture is still quite different from that of the Bay Area or Seattle especially in suburban Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego. Maybe California, like Texas, is a state that encompasses multiple regions, SoCal going with the Southwest and NorCal going with the Pacific Northwest?
Nope it is part of the Left Coast.

Thinking about it in another way, the freeways and suburbs type culture can be similar. The way people talk in in LA, San Diego, Las Vegas, and Phoenix is the same.
Mabye the Southwest has SoCal nuances, I know people there don't consider themselves in the SW.

why you yelling?

Texas is too large to be defined by a "region" of the US. Their is nothing Southwest about North, East, and South East Texas...and area roughly the size of Georgia. It is very much southern...and portions of the Hill Country, and West Texas are SouthWestern in identity. However, South Texas is unique to Texas....a Region entirely of its own.

Howest, have you ever been to Texas?

Because the largest number of people, indeed live in the least "Southwestern" portion of the State.

Texas is a Region of its own, with sub-regions. When i was younger, East Texas and the golden triangle will ALWAYS considered Deep South.
