I think the libs are mainly from NY city itself, when in the Navy met a few from upstate NY and they seemed like regular old country boys.

I was born in Dallas, and lived in La Feria and Harlingen in South Texas when I was a kid.
I miss Texas and hope to go back some day. Huge jack rabbits in west Texas I remember.
If you're gonna play in Texas, you got to have a fiddle in the band.

It seems there are two kinds of place that generate a lot of liberalism. Large cities and college towns.

Now that last quote is a good one.

I know what you guys mean. I moved to Dallas from New Jersey and holy cow but I run into a ton of people who also moved from Jersey or knows someone from there. It's like I can't get away from that state.

But Texas is definitely far more different than other states. Sometimes a little Jersey attitude helps a situation though. (Ha ha ha...)

Texas is probably more of a melting pot than most states. Goes back to our roots. The vast majority of those who fought for Texas independence were born in other states--there were very few anglo colonists before 1820, so there were very few native Texans old enough to fight in 1836. In addition to colonists and volunteers from other states, there were also a number of Mexican colonists who fought for Texas. So welcome to you New Yorkers and New Jerseyites. Just blend in, become Texans, and report to San Jacinto with your rifles, powder and ball!

I was born to Texas parents traveling abroad... in N. Carolina... but I was naturalized when I came back and have my Texas passport. :D
