I was speaking to my conservative brothers and sisters for info, I already knew what libs would say so I didn't see any need from refraining from the truth. I find it fruitless to discuss/debate with libs, I just want to be left alone and mind my own business and I'll let you mind yours. BTW, conservative bumper stickers= snap shots of truth, but then you interjected the admonition to refrain from political provocations and then sling one your self in pseudo lib fashion. Anywho thanks for the helpful info on this issue, I'll give it some consideration. Loving all peoples as Gods special creation, bman.
Then you wouldn't have had to opine at the level you did. You could've just said, "I'm a conservative so where would I be happier, Texas or Oklahoma?"

Which is by far one of the most conservative areas of the country, approached only really by Provo UT, home of Brigham Young University.

Waco, one of the most conservative areas in the country???? I think that title goes to some of Dallas's suburbs.

Plano is #2 but Waco is definitely just as conservative. Or more specifically, the Caucasian areas of Waco, which dominate the town, are.

Texas appears to have some degeneration in its border towns, will this march northward in coming decades or will reforms happen before then? I'm 47 and where I land next Id like to hope that it will retain its conservative foundations. Sorry if I **** off you libs, I do love you all as people but I cant take your politics. bman
I would move to Oklahoma as it went for Bush more than any other State.

Texas especially the urban areas are getting close to 50/50 parity. Houston/Dallas/Austin/San Antonio were all won by Obama.

Good luck.

Man thats a little disheartning. Which brings up another question I've had. What/how/why did Texas elect Ann Richards as Gov? Strikes me a little un-Texas like.
