    We dont pay an emperor nanny Mayor. We are not taxed to death to cover union salaries. The cost of living is much cheaper in our state.

    Not sure bro but the cost of living is much lower.

    Look, I dont have to sell Texas to you. People are already coming here by the truck loads. It's booming in every city here.
