Not long ago I was telling a customer that the product she was testing was from Oregon. The lady, who was probably in her early 70's, shivered when I mentioned Oregon and said she used to live there. I asked her if Oregon was too cold for her. She said, "No I ran away from Oregon to live in Texas." So I said, "Well good. I was reading a news article just this morning about how Texas is thriving with a budget surplus and low unemployment. She replied, "Oh I know, I've lived here for a while now. I ran away from Oregon because there are too many crazies there." (I suspected by crazies she meant leftists but was being circumspect since she did not know me.)
She went on to say she used to live in New York but left to get away from the crazies. She went to Oregon which was fine till the crazies from California started moving there too. "I love Texas," she said. "Save Texas it's the last." I said,"I know just what you mean and I agree with you." And she said again, "I love Texas. Save Texas. It's the last."
I had noticed from the beginning of our exchange that she had a foreign accent. So before she left I asked her where she was from originally. "I am from Russia, she said. "Save Texas. It's the last."
Wow, that gave me goosebumps.
I was thinking the very same thing.
It is true. When the executive orders come out, Texans will ignore it.
This may sound self serving, I just pray like hell that if a succession movement takes hold Texas will allow their neighbors to join in. Jesus, this is getting bad.
Remember the Alamo!!!!
Better hurry. Texas is turning blue fast.
Time for Texas to pull the eject handle on the union.
Sure hope Texans have some scootch over room ‘cause they may just become a sanctuary state for U.S. citizens.
God DID bless Texas.
I am starting to get a little concerned about all the California folk moving here.
In the early ‘80’s we were flooded with unemployed workers from Michigan for a couple of yrs. They came in their salt rusted cars.
They were always telling us how they did it up north, so much so that we actually printed bumper stickers that said,
“I dont give a damn how you did it up north”
True story. Now if the California people will keep their kooky ideas to themselves we can all get along...

After growing up around liberals, I moved to Texas because I appreciate the way Texans do things.
I’m not here to keep pushing the fail. I’m here to get the hell away from it!
Can we start kicking liberals out?
Only in Texas do they raise young heroes like these.
It’s especially meaningful to me because I always tell my spouse that Texas will be the last bastion of freedom in the world if it comes to that. And sure enough a complete stranger who has lived under communism confirmed it to me.
I won’t ever forget that encounter or that lady.
your state and few others are all thats left. I do hope when the time comes ( and its coming ) I will be able to pitch in and help with the fight.
Lots of nice talk but the state is still turning bluer with every passing year.
The state is being overrun from both north and south and simply ignoring that fact doesn’t change it.
My wife and I were in Oregon over the holidays - we used to live there and still have relatives in and around Portland. I can attest that they are all bat-s**t crazy. If you have Netflix, watch a couple of episodes of “Portlandia” - it is spot on.
Happy to be back home in Texas. We may, indeed, be the final frontier.
Amen, folks. Amen. Tears in my eyes.
Is Texas getting a new king? I didn't know there was a prince in line to succeed the throne...
