    Actually, the state has a great deal to offer, but it is a very diverse, cosmopolitan, but quite a bifurcated state. The large urban areas (the larger cities plus their larger and inmost suburbs) have been described as trending politically blue, socially progressive, NPR-ish, one writer even said "almost California-like". Get out into the smaller cities and rural areas, you would think you are in a different state. Those places are quite politically and socially red almost like rural Oklahoma. The major growth has been in the urban areas and as they grow larger and as many of those relocating do not buy into the mostly Anglo old boy/girl brand of social politics, then change is inevitable.

    All that to say that if you like those trends, and you like a strong economy (not just due to any current political leadership, especially those at the state level), you prefer mild winters and are willing to tolerate a little heat in the summer (that's why God invented A/C), you enjoy a good pay to cost of living ratio, then it can be a nice place to live. Esta bueno!

    Lots of reasons....

    1) Good weather, apart from the occasional Hurricane + Tornado

    2) Good reputation for steaks (possibly only rivalled by British & Jap stuff)

    3) Some of the best politicians in America, like Governor Greg Abbot + Senator Ted Cruz + Rep. Dan Crenshaw.

    4) Been consistently placing in Top10 best states for Jobs + starting a business during the last several years. Forbes magazine currently ranks Texas 3rd best for economic climate, and 1st best for growth prospects, with costs for doing business 11.2% below the national average.

    5) Good people, and home to top YouTubers including: DemolitionRanch (and brothers "OperatorDrewski" + "Homemade Everything").... as well as LunkersTV, LakeForkGuy, Dakota Meyer + Scotty Kilmer.

    6) Supposed to be a good cancer care hospital in Houston (M.D. Anderson), with one of the world's best surgeon's for dealing with brain tumours.

    because it is home to full control of conservatives and Trump supporters

    Greg Abbott is the greatest governor in U.S. history

    Trump DESTROYED hillary in texas, and any state that rejects crooked hillary and maxine waters is a GREAT state!!!!

      The demographics are quickly changing the state and it isn't likely to stop. Of course, the creative gerrymandering and voter suppression efforts has slowed those changes down.

  • I like the Texans 🤠...
