I think the big difference is that Texans will do more to actually SOLVE their problems rather than perpetually kick the can down the road like California.

When you do run across a Liberal Democrat from Texas he or she does tend to be a member of the extreme nutball fringe (Ronny Earl, Dan Rather, Molly Ivins, Jim Hightower, Sheila Jackson Lee, etc. etc. etc.)

I think Texans should be careful what they wish for. One of the reasons my state has headed to the right is because the liberals are fleeing to greener pastures and Texans are advertizing the greenest grass around.

If Texas were to dig up Austin, put in on a trailer and then transport it to Southern California where a big hole is waiting for it, both states would be made more perfect in their particular beliefs, morals and principles.

Here's something I posted that shows a Texas senator trying to solve this.

It’s very simple: Government is overhead. Let the overhead get away from you or be spent on unnecessary items and you’re DOA.

Just because Texas isn’t perfect doesn’t make California tolerable.

North Dallas has turned into islam-central. It’s a shocking change since 9/11 even. Halal meat shops everywhere, burkas all over. I’m not joking whatsoever either. It’s really nuts.

Texas is going to be California in 20 years, because of demographics. Hispanics will completely swamp the state, and the race for free stuff will begin. Taxes will shoot up. Crime will shoot up.

It's true. Wages in Texas are the lowest in the nation, for example. If you have out-of-state obligations, you may find it tough to keep up on what you will be paid.

You cannot survive without a car (and the associated automobile expenses) in Texas' population centers.

If you are able to ditch out-of-state obligations, have a running automobile, and willing to trade the haut of the East for the hot of Texas, Texas is an option.

Texas continues with latino trajectory and it will be lost as well.

And that will be it.

Texas will love it when they have 40 million people, and a 7-11 greedymart run by Muslims on every corner...

Good luck with that

The title itself suggests that California is even worse than it appears. If “perfect” is to be the benchmark of a good state, and Texas is not perfect, while California isn’t even close to Texas...

Then California is even closer to completely bad.

And of course it is, though things will get even worse. There is now a supermajority of democrats in the state legislature, and an even worse democrat as governor, giving the party of evil a blank check.

The Only Reason Texas isn’t perfect can be summed up in one word: “Austin”

The best thing Texas has going for it is that our Representatives’ to the state government are allowed to meet once every two years and then for a limited number of days(I believe 120).

Special sessions can be called by the Governor but must have a specific agenda.

Unfortunately our ‘Representatives’ once elected deem themselves lawmakers and that is where the problems start and seldom end...

Texas biggest concern should be its PhonyCon governor Rick Perry....who is pushing that NAFTA Superhighway nonsense again.....which will cost Texas as much as $150-$200 BILLION to build roads to/from Mexico for the Communist Chinese, built by a Spanish company.

This is on top of Perry pushing Illegal Alien Amnesty.....and already signing a bill that gives DREAM ACT Amnesty to Illegal Aliens via In-State College Tuition....another program that will cost BILLIONS

Texas is not California...but there is still too much pandering to Illegal Aliens...as much as California does

In every state that has fairly big cities or even just one big city, cities are the problem, whether it be California, Illinois or Texas, cities, are where liberals live.

Here in Illinois, it is just one big city that runs and ruins the entire state.
