I have just read through 26 pages and can’t take any more from people who don’t understand Texas!!
I’m a Texan and dang proud of it! The Lone Star is the only flag that hangs outside my home. Yes, I’m an American but I’m a TEXAN first. My
family came to Texas from Germany in 1848 to find a better life. They found it and all I can say is…God Bless Texas!
In case y’all don’t know anything about Texas; here’s a little lesson for y’all.
We are a proud people and love our state. We are polite. We say yes sir, no ma’am, please and thank you. We have manners and abide by a code of
honor. And men hold doors for ladies too!
We love our trucks and the gas that powers them. Those battery operated cars can’t pull a horse trailer and are useless on the ranch.
We work hard for our money and most of us don’t expect handouts from the government.
We take care of our family and neighbors. If someone is down on their luck folks will band together and give them a hand.
Most of us don’t talk on our cell phones in public places. That’s rude and disrespectful to everyone around you.
We have signs along the highway that read, “Drive friendly, it’s the Texas way.” We don’t honk or give fingers to people. If you do that sort
of thing someone will straighten you out real quick. We got road signs that read, “DUI? You can’t afford it.” And don’t be surprised if you
see a tricked out Escalade pulling someone over on the highway with a sign on it that says, “This vehicle was confiscated from a local drug
dealer.” You don’t want to mess with a Texas Ranger and I’m not talking baseball!
We love our guns which is why we don’t have a lot of crime. If one bad guy pulls out a gun, 20 good guys will pull theirs too. Guess who wins?
Houston was talking about flying drones over the city to control crime. I figured if they did, It wouldn’t be long before we had “drone” season
and started selling tags.
We respect our land and got a lot of it! (About 267,338 square miles. Only Alaska is bigger than us)
Natural resources…You bet! We got oil, lumber, water, natural gas, coal, silver, gold etc.
We got cattle, deer, chickens, horses, crops and plenty of hard workers to tend to all of it.
Did I mention we have our own power grid? (Which the feds are trying to take away from us now)
We are God loving people who live in a right or wrong world. It’s black or white; no gray area here. (And I’m not talking about skin color
either.) If you abide by the law and keep your nose clean life will be good for you in Texas.
Color don’t matter here as long as your blood runs Texan.
Many local business owners are 3rd and 4th generation. In some places deals are still done with a handshake.
We are not politically correct and will say exactly what we think. If you don’t like what you hear, shed that thin skin, consider the source, put
your fingers in your ears and move along.
In many of our cities and towns we can leave our homes and trucks unlocked and no one will mess with anything.
This is just my opinion and I certainly don’t speak for all Texans, but I do know the things I have mentioned pretty much hold true in North, East
and West Texas. Sorry to y’all in South Texas. In a state this big you gotta expect some problems. It’s nothing we can’t sort out if we could
take matters into our own hands.
I guess the reason the rest of the United States hates Texas is because we work hard, play hard, and when it comes down to the basics of existence we
don’t really need the rest of the country. We got everything we need right here. We might struggle, but the Texas spirit will pull us through. And
we have been known to fight till the end…Remember the Alamo?
Don’t kid yourself…Not a lot of Texans talk openly about succession but if the bull sh*t gets deep enough…The world will understand what
‘”You don’t mess with TEXAS!” means and it not a trash campaign.
A lot of Texans have been “Getting Ready” for a long time. It’s a whisper that could turn into a roar if things get bad enough.
Think what you want about Texas but don’t underestimate us! We will do what we need to do to survive. If it means succession….SO BE IT!
