As a non-native who married into Texas, I'm not sure how I feel about this article.

The most dangerous thing in the world is a yankee with a U-Haul

They out to be quarantined like any other dangerous disease


Look what these kind of people did to Arizona and Colorado? They come in and bring their defective liberal brains with them.
They vote, they get elected to city councils and school boards.

This trend sucks and Texas is doomed

San Antonio!
I am a transplant to Texas, but I came here expecting to adapt to this state and not the other way around. We chose Texas because it suited us on a number of levels, I am a conservative right winger with strong patriotic beliefs. I believe in helping those in need but not those who are lazy. I think everyone has an obligation to help society in one way or the other, be it military service or simply volunteering in some manner to benefit others. I believe in a government that serves us and not the other way around. I highly respect those who sacrifice for the greater good, such as those in the military but also first responders such as the police, fire department and EMTs. I treat others with respect but expect the same from them, and when they violate that I have no qualms in calling them out on it.

I believe these to be true Texas values and ones that should be honored and defended. I welcome any other newcomers to this state that accept Texas for what it is and honor its vast, rich history. Those with the intent on changing it into something else are lacking respect for this great land, and I will respond accordingly.

Like rats fleeing sinking ships!!

Also, consider the source... Time magazine.
This article is in line with the agenda to turn Texas Blue. They want Texas so bad they are going to do or say whatever they can to get it.

I was not born in Texas either, but my daughter was and God willing, so will her children be as well, and I'll be damned if all the attitudes and politics I fled is going to set up camp here!!
I will do what I can at the voting booth, but honestly I believe it's going to require a bigger response then voting alone.

All this naysaying and what a lot of people are forgetting is that the true believers are staying in their home states. The people fleeing to Texas are those fed up and want to join like minded people.

I do know some people who moved here that are very liberal and did so because of work transfers. It happens and will keep happening. However, what we should be considering is the people moving here voluntarily. Many of them are doing so because they are tired of their rights being violated, tired of high taxes, and tired of insane regulations that strangle both business and the common man.

If you're really worried about it, don't stop voting. Too many states they simply let this happen and complain. Texas has a pretty good voting record and hopefully will continue to do so.

Remember, the future belongs to those who show up.
