Just read yer homepage and had a hoot!
You Texans ought to immediately apply to become Kiwis: we'd welcome you with open arms, as Brothers. We need a colony overseas, and I can't think of a better one than Texas!
(Kidding, mate: but only just. We just have to get used to the fact that yer now part of the USA and we missed out: "snooze you lose" or so they say.)
Tho' we have the population of, say, metropolitan Chicago, us Kiwis punch way above our weight. Y'all would fit in just fine with us rugby-loving Galoots. Most of us can shoot straight despite our Government's preference for us to be unarmed. And we have wide-open-spaces -- but not quite on a Texas Scale -- and we appreciate our neighbors at a distance.
God Bless the Lone Star State. And God Defend New Zealand.
And God Bless America.

I read your post and your home page. You may be a Kiwi but you sure as hell would make a damn good Texan.
