the only state I could say is TEXAS, that state has so much pride it might as well be its own country, Texas is unlike any other that I have seen. The Texas flag is on everything from bathroom accessories to tattoos.

I don't know of any good way to measure state pride.
I think other factors are likely involved. They list Michigan as sixth for "stickiness" and I've never heard their economy is growing or good in any way.

Actually I think the "Texas Star" or "Lone Star" is even more popular. I see it everywhere now. Even embedded in the glass on people's front doors or on the stone/brick of their home.

I always wondered what it would feel like to be so clear headed that I would post on a public forum regarding topics that I have absolutely no clue of which I speak.
Would you enlighten me Rubber. It must be awesome living in your head.

I find it strange that South Carolinians are proud of SC, to the point of obsession; while North Carolina seems below average. Nobody really cares in NC.
Texans are somewhat proud, I suppose because they were once their own country.
Hawaiians seem proud of their Asiatic ethnicity
Alaskans seem proud of their huge state, with all its isolation and natural beauty
New Jersey people are proud, why I'm not sure. I think it has something to do with Bruce Springsteen, or Italians, or petrochemical plants, or something.
Louisianans are proud of their cajun roots
Californians.. I don't know. The ones I've met associate with LA or SF, more than they do with the state as a whole.
New Yorkers are obviously proud of NYC, but I haven't seen much to indicate that they have state pride. I don't hear much talk about Buffalo or Albany. It is hard to tell the difference, with them.
and Maryland.. that's another one. born-and-raised Maryland people seem very proud of their state.

When I lived in Texas I learned that my kids were asked to pledge allegiance to the state of texas. I thought that was misguided. Needless to say, I notified my children to stand quietly while the rest of the class did the sheeple dance.

Since when was Texas its own country?
