If that's acceptable, how can you argue with: full on non-minority. 100% anti-minority where applicable. I'm as Northern as they come, and this type of transparent hypocritical region-based bigotry just ticks me off. This is exactly why I think we're heading toward civil revolt. You hate everyone from "over there". Well when it happens, guess who you'll be willing to fight? Something just needs to happen to make you a LITTLE angrier.
Notice there is no 0%? Isn't that hysterical? As if we all should be, or aspire to be, Texans -- God forbid! Please don't compare the South, or the rest of the U.S. to Texas! Some of us know how to act ... We have manners ... Sound judgment, etc.!
If you don't take the quiz, at least read the questions! It's a hoot! For example, regarding geography, it asks, "What doesn't Texas have?" And there's a list of answers. You could easily get this right, without ever being in the state of TX!
Another involves the "Yellow Rose of Texas" ... As if you'd have to be a Texan to know that. If you've ever seen an old Western, you've probably heard the song! I still laugh at the poll above -- "Less than 50%"? That's just the lowest amount imaginable. Where is the 0%? I suppose you could argue that 0 is "less than 50%", but many of us would be PROUD to mark 0% and skip the dumb*ss quiz!
Texas (and conservative states) hold back the rest of the US economically & socially. Texas and other conservative states feel the same way vise versus. They wanted to leave the union and even though it's unconstitutional, they should go. A country needs to change its borders. America is going through puberty and it's body is changing.
America is not in a desperate state of change. The blue states are pulling this country too far in their direction. We don't need to progress socially. Also, Texas is one of the most patriotic states in the country. They do not want to secede.
I spar for myself about secession. Currently, we are not in a state of radical change, so no one will secede. Personally I think the better solution is popular sovereignty. The states know what is best for themselves. I don't want liberals socialists in New York City controlling how I live my life in a rural area.
I know it's not a state thing like the platform of the parties but it's pretty much split down the middle whether they want to or not. In 2012, there was a bunch of petitions in retaliation to the presidential election where the state's civilians filed petitions for Independence; Texas had 125,000 (which was needed) for a response of the white house. There's even a Texas movement that's sole goal is to achieve independence from America called Texas Nationalist Movement which recent years has gained rapid support; the movement reported it has increased by 400%.
