    I just moved to Texas from california. People are nicer here, better manners. Demographics seem the same. Maybe a few more white people. It’s hot as hell.

    My point is when does Texas become anyones home? You have to be born there and die there? Someone mentioned Beyoncé but doesn’t she live in LA now? Being born in Texas is all that matters?

      You have to LARP it, but you can't act like a transplant. It's not just shooting guns and wearing hats and calling people Black person. Since you're from California that might be difficult, but it's possible to become honorary Texan.

      The real question is will Texas retain the good traditions of the past like great public schools and a disdain for elites, or will it collapse into Florida's gun-serfdom with the influx of rich self-proclaimed libertarians?

      Eh, I'm a several generations in but I don't really care. I do think we have a culture but I think of weird little things like mums in high school. Or maybe we should make newcomers watch early episodes of King of the Hill. There's one episode when a tornado hits and Hank loses his clothes and has to pick between a tiny cactus and the Texas state flag to cover himself, before eventually deciding on the cactus. That was pretty funny.

      Texas is conservative but I don't think being "Texan" is, like, a political ideology. It's a certain culture. Texans are a bit curt and headstrong (like LBJ, he was like that but a liberal), and there's some degree of orderliness including "law and order," and the manners the anon mentioned. That's my advice for transplants, don't make everything about politics and religion. Molly Ivins was quite liberal politically (in an Ann Richard way) but I thought this was good:

    Lamar Hunt had a huge impact on American sports. The NFL wouldn't be what it is today without him and the MLS might not even exist.

      Frick him. He turned a calm and sensitive Southern town with deep and interesting heritage into a braying mass hysteria factory that subsidizes the worst kind of small-minded small-town politicians and their shitty decisions. Also soccer sucks.

    How come Texas joined the union anyway? It freedom and self governing fit whole theme.

      Because it would secure itself against indians, mexicans and guarantee economic securities. Sam houston was a staunched unionist and did not imagine that Texas could succeed or be successful without the Union.

      also there was incessant wars and border conflicts with Mexico that could not be resolved by Texas alone. The Mexicans even managed to take San Antonio in a raid.
