There's an Onalaska, Texas, but Alaska isn't Texas.

And, you'd also realize that Obama won Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin, none of which are small towns. Does Texas have small towns? Sure, but so does every other state in the union.

I love the way that the people there are so proud of their State.
Shortly before he died, Kurt Vonnegut wrote the only two places in the US that breed people who identify proudly and fiercely with their homes are Texas and NYC (obviously paraphrased). The former is certainly true, which is probably a bit annoying to a few city-daters, but who cares if they weren't fortunate enough to be born here? That's their parents' fault. For proof of the NYC claim, look no further than the old posts of Rachael84 (some of which are incredibly interesting, to say the least):

Isn't that a stereotypical Texas attitude. Texans have an incredibly inflated opinion of their importance.
Just sit back and enjoy being part of the USA.
