AMEN!!! I'm a native Texan and I can't wait to get out of here!

The best way I can describe my inexplicable connection to this land and its people is that I feel like we are one big dysfunctional family. We may sometimes not get along, we may yell and shout at each other, but at the end of the day we recognize that no matter where we came from or what we believe we share a common bond. We are Texans! That's why as a native Houstonian I can stick up for Dallas against an out-of-stater right after ripping it to shreds and see no irony in doing so. Tried living somewhere else many times... can't do it. Never stuck. Never felt right. This is my home.

Well it looks like I'm not the only one who hates it here and when asked I will voice my opinion.

I stay in Texas, because it offers people so many choices. You have big cities, funky cities (austin), hill country, oceans, beautiful weather in the fall and winter, and best of all some of the most freindliest people I have ever met.

lol I'm starting to advocate steering people away from TX -- Loop 410, 281, 1604, 10, and 35 will thank me! I love the state of TX just hate to see it get so overcrowded

What keeps me in Texas? To quote Gary P. Nunn, "I could tell you but we would be here all night".

Just looking at that slideshow puts a big smile on my face, a tear in my eye and makes me proud to call Texas my home and to be a Native Texan.

1. It's inexpensive and has plenty of jobs.
2. The low cost of living. Definitely will move someday.

Please give me more answers than "we were our own country" or "we can fly our flag the same height as the U.S. flag." I think those are cool facts myself, but a state as large and as rich in history as Texas offers so much more.

I'm looking forward to leaving Kentucky and moving to the Lone Star State! Thanks!
Non-Native. Hated it. Nothing kept me there. Lived in SA for 9 months and just got back HOME to CA. The reason people move to Texas is for cheap housing. You know that old saying "you get what you pay for ..."? I am so glad to be back in CA! I was crazy to ever leave in the first place.
