If you don't like TX, go live in North Dakota or Minnesota, where you will freeze to death in the winter. The people who have the problems you mentioned are not native Texans, but imports. We who live in west Texas don't have those aggravations. We carry guns to deal with varmints, not humans. We work hard and live outdoors a lot, so we don't have obesity. As far as teen pregnancies go, those don't occur with west Texas gals. Their daddies would deal harshly with both the girls and boys involved. Those things occur in places like Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio, which are cities and kids are softies. Obviously, you know nothing about the parts of Texas where the real Texans live. We work hard, play hard, and we're nice people to everyone except those who choose to mess with us.
