    Unlike Texas all of the obnoxious people in California are located in pretty centralized areas, so California probably.

    Texas is sooooooo much cheaper than California. Plus the politicians in California are retarded. Shit and drug needled filled streets... GIVE THEM MORE FREE NEEDLES!!!!! Dumbasses.



    Austin, San Antonio, and Huston are pretty liberal. I'd argue that El Paso and Dallas swing more liberal than republican. Beto came from El Paso and he's a socialist...

    Sure the cities are better but with the state as whole is still republican, I mean ted cruz

    It's the same story pretty much anywhere: the big cities are filled with Democrats, everywhere else is Republican. Same goes for Texas. Bordertowns with Mexico also tend to be heavily Democrat, although that's pretty much due to illegal immigration (as their party affiliation leans heavily towards Democrat).

    I've lived in both states for a while, and they both have their up's and down's. Overall, I'd still pick Texas, because it is by far the most affordable place to live. California does have really nice weather for the most part, although depending upon where you live the constant threat of natural disasters on top of the ridiculous cost of living and taxes make it so you have to be very well off to live there. I've also found Texans much more tolerant that Californians, despite people's misconceptions about parties and whatnot.

    The reason border towns have swung democrat is they don't want their land seized for a pointless wall. It has nothing to do with imaginary votes being cast by illegals.

    This bring an interesting point. Texans are partially responsible for the high cost of living in California.

    Every digital order a Texas gamer placed through Blizzard increases the real estate value in Irvine. Every Uber ride in Austin makes a Bay Area Victorian a smidge more expensive. Every small business running ads in Dallas, raises a tower a tiny bit higher. Every Pinterest board in Houston, reshapes the place where people went to prom and repaired mufflers and dreamed of parrots and poetry. Each time some body rent a place in Galveston through Airbnb, rent in California get a little bit more out of reach for the every day people. Every time a woman in rural Texas order birth control online, commercial real estate lease in San Francisco goes up a tiny bit.

    I can't figure out something smart to say about the fact that Chevron now owns the largest acreage in the Permian Basin.

    guess it depends which state has an area that never gets tornados.
    North Texas is a major part of Tornado Alley. It gets more tornadoes than Kansas.

    I'd pick Texas. The Texas coast is beautiful.

    yeah death penalty for an abortion is totally being sensible human beings.
    FYI, a Republican of all people killed the abortion death penalty bill. It didn't even make it to committee.

    mostly.

    though don't they also have some dumb shit about soda cup sizes? basically trying to micromanage people's lives with stuff like that.

    that's what i don't want. i don't want anyone in my life, telling me what to do on that level. if i want to be a housewife to a woman, i want to be able to do that with nobody telling me i can't. if i want to own a few guns, i also don't want anyone telling me i can't do that.

    Texas. Without hesitation Texas.

    I live in Virginia and have visited both states for prolonged periods. The general attitude (as in, the median attitude of all the people I met) was more positive and polite in Texas. Californians, as a general population, seem rather aloof, arrogant, and selfish.

    The attitude of most of the locals I encountered almost managed to mess up the beauty that was blizzcon ( 3 of my 8 visits were for the Con).

    I am ok with hot weather and the occasional natural disaster. There is not nearly as much humidity in DFW area as there is here, so the heat is more bearable. And the People... So many of them so polite, and generally kind. Sure, there were some assholes.. Just as there were SOME nice people cali.. But the numbers were so lopsided.

    Northern California is actually the more extremist side of California. SoCal is where the chill people live (SoCal defined as LA and below). The further north you get, the crazier people get. Granted most of the crazy is concentrated into the Bay Area.

    I've spent a decent amount of time in Texas and California, they have their ups and downs on each side. Advantage of California is that you are unlikely to be unemployed. Disadvantage is that you are more likely to have to live in a car while still being employed full time, because speculative real estate raising property values and the collapsing economies in the midwest are driving people West again putting more people into the state.
    Advantage of Texas is you are likely to find somewhere you can buy and own a home. From what I've seen a possible disadvantage: unless you are near a city you are relying on a profession of agriculture or animal husbandry, or you will be unemployed. Another disadvantage is that Texas appears to have a more severe drug problem due to their Mexican border than California does.
    California has better weather than Texas, just plain fact. There is a large variety of climates within California, which means just about any climate a person would prefer they can find in California. Texas has two climates, the coastal climate and the inland climate.

    California is actually very politically active and the state closest to a true democracy (and there is a good amount of red and blue districts, republicans do themselves a disservice every year actively avoiding California during presidential elections). It is far easier for citizens to get their proposed legislation on ballots, and just about everything gets voted on, at a city, county and state level. If you don't actually want to have the inner workings of government thrown in your face every day, then California probably isn't a good place to be.

    From what I've seen, Texas is not that politically active, the government does things sometimes, and people react to it after it happens.
    What are you willing to sacrifice?
