Texas is definitely one of the best states I've been to. Very diverse, not sure what Loneshot means.

how people vote in a state would be VERY far down the list of reasons to move somewhere for me...ignorance exists in all states

the economy, weather, a dozen other things, etc >>>>>> how 60% of the state votes

But i doubt that, so why are a bunch of middle and poor people consistently voting for republicans.

CA has plenty racism and ignorance of its own, but i can't imagine its on Texas' level. Isn't Texas the place where they are (or were) voting to stop teaching evolution in schools. I do remember there being something about them editing textbooks or something of that nature.
the irony here is that this post is full of ignorance, from top to bottom

I'm sure much of my sentiment is ignorant, i never disputed that. I haven't lived there, but i have family that does, and most of my family that lives in CA came from Texas.

But when i read news online of how they actively pursue editing textbooks to favor republican principals or what the church wants taught, that is definitely not something that makes me think its a go-to place to raise a family.

I think how the majority of a state votes is a pretty good indicator of how a majority of the people think. Its not really difficult to understand. If a candidate stands for bunch of things and reflects certain characteristics that may be anti-anyone not white or rich, and the majority of a state votes in favor of that person, maybe as a non-white and not rich person, i don't want to move to some place whose most likely to vote for policies that don't favor me.

like longhornfan said (good buddha, i can't believe i'm agreeing with him) austin, dallas, houston, and san antonio all voted for obama. unless you wanna move out to the boonies, then it's very doubtful that you will be surrounded by right wing zealots.

Even if you were surrounded by right wingers, what are you so scared of?...you think they will be hanging blacks in their front lawns during the day or something? Are you not aware that there are Christians that are perfectly friendly and normal?

I don't even really know my neighbors or who they voted for, and I really don't care

For all I know everyone around me worships Satan at night...and that is fine with me, I don't give a fck...it doesn't have any impact on me.

Maybe there was a time when it didn't matter, but how anyone can keep a friend who consistently votes republican in this day and age where they don't even attempt to hide their racism and extremism, that is beyond me. If the majority of Texans support candidates of this nature, why would i want to live there?

I don't imagine Texas to be a cowboy slinging klan rally, but if they consistently support the racist, the war mongers, and those seeking to alter public education to favor the right and religious, then whether they have diverse cities and a good economy means little in the grand scheme.

so if you lost your job in Cali, and couldn't afford to support your family, and were offered a high paying job in Dallas, you would refuse to go because it is a "red state" ?
