They only see what they want to see. The good thing about Texas is that we have every thing a person could want. plus anyone who is from Texas is proud to be from Texas. Do you ever notice that where ever you go in the world (I have been many places in my 21 years of life. My dad lives in Austraila and I have been around the world.) When someone ask you where you are from. Texans say I am from Texas. NOT I am from the USA. haha EVERYONE knows about Texas. That is what I notice.
just my 2 cents.
