Texas is growing faster, also doing much better than NY in these times though.

these are not in order!!! I won't say California because to me it's just for a vacation even though it probably has one of the worlds highest GDP on the world, and etc...
Yes Watts ' Compton ' Oakland & Richmond are prime vacation spots . You watch too much TV

Does DC count as a state? If so that's #1.

otherwise CA has to be #1 (like it or not - it represents the 10th largest economy in the world)
and obviously NY is #2 (although I'm sure they'll protest - but if we're talking about STATES not CITIES, then CA wins)

Everything after that is totally debatable... Probably Texas, Florida, and Pennsylvania or Ohio

Debatable? The debating's already been done, 220+ posts of points in fact, and even Rachael would begrudgingly admit you're only partially right. New York isn't the obvious number two. It's number three, though only marginally behind Texas, which is number two.

I only read a couple pages, but saying NY is important because of NYC is like saying Illinois is important because of Chicago. Other than Chicago in Illinois and NYC in NY, I see nothing much going for the states.

I'd definitely rate California as #1. Florida and Texas would be in there for sure.

Did you even read any of the other posts. Aside from NYC, the state is in the top tier of other industries such as agriculture

What's the deal with arguing over other peoples' ratings?... It's all subjective anyways. Why don't you each just make your own list and let it stand?

No. We looked at NY's and TX's GDP numbers and they were nearly the same. If anything, I woulds say NY is slightly ahead of TX because NYC is so important for the country as a whole. That's what makes or break the tiebreaker. It's more important than Dallas and Houston combined.

Ok, bring on the hating, but I'm sure some agree with me.

True but we're not talking about NYC vs Houston/ Dallas. We're talking NY vs TX and TX comes out on top although barely. Texas has a higher GDP and a faster growing GDP, population, economy, etc.
