    I thought I might start a list of why conservative folks should move to Texas excluding all liberal Yankees.

    1) Texas is known for recognizing and praising the self sufficient.

    2) Texas is perhaps the most conservative state in the union.

    3) Texas has some liberal snowbirds who have migrated from Yankee land and want to change Texas into Yankee land.

    4) The best hot sauce isn't made in New York.

    Alright folks, I started a list and tried to make it encompass a wide range of opinions.

    What would you add.

    OR perhaps you might want to make a list of reasons why not to move to Texas. 1) I might end up living next to someone like agedman! :(

    Reasons not to move to Texas.

    1. I don't want to find out whether or not snake tastes like chicken.

    2. I like having cold water come out of the tap when I turn on the cold water tap.

    3. I don't think I could address anyone, "Bubba".

    4. Tacos are not a breakfast food.

    5. I'd never get any sleep in the summer because I'd lay awake just to make sure the air conditioner didn't conk out.

    6. I've grown accustomed to city zoning ordinances.

    7. I don't want to get beat up wearing my Minnesota Vikings colors in Dallas.

    8. I'm used to pronouncing the 'g' at the end of gerunds.

    9. Goin' WalMartin' is not English.

    10. Asphalt surfaces should not undulate.

    [edited: was using my tablet to post and thought this was in the Humor section, and didn't see it was in Politics. See my next post.]

    Why conservative folk should move to Texas

    1. Conservative is not a dirty word.

    2. Nobody looks at you funny if you say, "you know the Bible says..."

    3. If you don't pray before a meal people think you are weird.

    4. Most folks know the Bill of Rights by heart, especially #2.

    5. People wouldn't dare wear military garb, unless they are actively serving.

    6. A combination gas station and gun shop would not raise eyebrows.

    7. If you like football, this is your state.

    8. It's perfectly acceptable to say the word "liberal" with a condescending sneer in your voice.

    9. The only tree huggers in Texas are squirrels.

    10. There are vultures circling the Democratic party headquarters.

    Great list!!! (I like the other one, too.)

    I have to reflect (on the other list) that having eaten snake, I much prefer barbequed gator tail.

    :tongue3:

    It might have good chili. It doesn't have great chili.

    Texas don't even put beans, or spaghetti, sometimes not even tomatoes, in their chili! What kind of chili could that be?!?

    The kind that won my son a chili cook off.

    I know the rest of you folks don't mind, but the beans are left out of Texas chilli on purpose.

    It goes along with being comfortable in the saddle.
