This "reputation" is the evolution thing? lol

amazing what the media can do

I base that reputation on people I know and not the media. I work at a furm that is originally headquartered in Texas so a lot of the people I work with grew up there and didnt have good things to say about the public school system.

point is, the city is extremely liberal...period
Yes I understand it's liberal. It's simply not most the liberal. I chose two conservative sources for those lists. You can see what criteria they chose.

please, tell me how Austin resembles New York? lol


Dallas has a large down town area and professional sport teams...those two things alone make it closer to NY than Austin.

Never said they "resembled" each other. I understand that Dallas is a larger city. However Austin definitely holds much more appeal to most New Yorkers than Dallas. My point about the New Yorkers who had been to Austin is most would not ever think of vacationing in Dallas.

as usual, prime is blinded by homerism. and really, maher, a libertarian is who you choose to show how liberal austin is?


Now, Austin is liberal, but very far from being the most liberal city in the US. It sticks out because it is in Texas.

How are you guys determining what makes one city more liberal than another?

Austin is a college town full of liberal college kids...it would be liberal in any state.



Also, I'm a Dallas homer, I don't even care for Houston...Austin I do like but not because it is in Texas...Texas is fckin enormous, its like 4 states to me.

austin has 50k college kids in a CITY of 800k. That is not a college town like AA or Iowa City, etc.

again, its quite liberal, but as an outsider who moved to texas, much of that is by contrast to the rest of the state. No way its more liberal than almost every coastal city in Cali and the Northwest.

I went to a school that had probably 20k students in a city with a population around 80k. I don't know how liberal the town was, but 1 in 4 people were drunk.

CA only appears to be on the decline because they want to hold on to all the high income property as well as create more. White people are moving back into compton (and South Central in general) while others are leaving CA because they can't afford it. Before you know it they'll all be trying to move back.

The rest of the city IS liberal though, not just the college kids...it is a music city as well, the music life there is found all over.

It's not like it is some college kids mixed in with conservative rednecks at all...the entire city is liberal as fck...and just because the state capital is there means nothing either, any republicans working there doesn't seep into the cities clubs, restaurants, general feel, etc.

After my recent US trip if I was moving anywhere city wise, it would be Portland, Seattle, San Francisco or New York.

Tampa/St. Pete here.

The Summers are brutal, and it always seems like the weirdest shit that you see on the news takes place here, but this is a great place to live. Having great beaches, pro sports, and tons to do makes it a very desireable area.

OP is a chinky faggot. Needs to get the **** out of Texas.

**** all the messicans that live in Texas and the black people can get the hell out too. GO BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY.

^^^^What Loneshot thinks all texans are.

He acts like Central California doesn't exist or anything.

Austin has more appeal than Dallas to NYers. Dallas is very upscale. Houston is where the jobs are at and needs a public transit system of some kind. It will have a bigger population than NY in a few years time. Book it.

Texas is a conservative and business friendly state...California is very liberal and not as business friendly. And Texas has lots of jobs. Coincidence? I think not.

I'm in the process of getting my visa for work and if it goes through, I'd be down in Odessa area, so it would be cool to check these cities out on my days off.

West Texas blows man but it's booming. Lot of rich cougars though...

The sheer SIZE of Texas blows me away. I heard from one end to the other on I-10, it's 800 miles. That's roughly 4/5th of my total drive time when I travel from Tampa to Ohio. All in ONE state.
