I've asked dozens of hillbilly sounding Texans if I sound different to them and they all said no.

Southern accents always make me giggle. I went to drop something off at some Vietnamese lady's house in Houston with a friend of mine. This lady opens the door lookin all fobby and ****, we tell her we were droppin **** off. She looks at us for a second, then says: "Y'all come en en rassle y'aw sayelves uh sayt" (English translation: Welcome to my home, please come in and find yourselves a seat). I about died right there, that was the funniest thing I'd ever heard.

Damn, you read that far back? That is what I hear. The UK people at least are fascinated with Texas.

Normal.

I'll notice a yankee accent in a heartbeat though. Especially strong Bostonian, New Yawkah, or Joisey.

In Texas, it is still a "hanging offense" to steal cattle.

I'd like to Thank the people of Texas for being so nice upon my return to the States for R&R. It was nice to receive a warm Welcome Home again.

I've spent a great deal of my life living elsewhere, and I've had the same feeling as well. It's always a warm welcome home in Texas.

I assume you are serving, thank you!

Texas gets all the good congressmen

This guy is running for congress

The answers below are exactly how they were sent in Morovich’s reply.
Gun rights questionnaire

(Questionnaire courtesy of National Gun Rights Examiner David Codrea)

1. Do you believe that the Constitution is the "supreme law of the land" and that the Bill of Rights acknowledges our birthrights?
Morovich: YES
2. If so, should these rights be proactively protected from infringement by all levels of government, including city, county and state?
Morovich: YES
3. Please give some examples of gun laws you consider constitutional.
Morovich: none come to mind, my family owns automatic weapons in compliance with law, but this is really unconstitutional.
4. Please give some examples of gun laws you consider unconstitutional.
Morovich: Certainly assault rifle bans and any restrictions or requirements to license/register.
5. Does the right to bear arms include the right for any peaceable citizen to carry them concealed without a permit, as in Vermont?
Morovich: YES
6. Do you believe that Americans have a right to own, use and carry weapons of military pattern, and will you use the prestige of elected office to publicly promote that right?
Morovich: YES
7. Do you support or oppose registration of weapons?
Morovich: Oppose
8. Do you support or oppose licensing requirements to own or carry firearms?
Morovich: Oppose except restrictions on felons and non-citizens.
9. What specific gun laws will you work to get repealed?
Morovich: all, as possible.
10.If elected, will you back your words of support for firearms rights up with consistent actions?
Morovich: Yes
11.Do you support the right of law-abiding college students to carry for self-protection while on campus?
Morovich: Yes, but there should be a minimum age limit as applied by State Law.

What area are you considering? This place is huge, and lifestyles vary quite a bit, depending on where exactly you are. Have you ever been here, to TX?

Houston? No thanks...

As far as city's go, I like Austin and San Antonio. I'm about an hour from each, with nobody around to bother me.

DFW is nice, but it's too flat up there for me.

Ah, you're a young buck. Your aspirations and goals will change drastically over the next few years, I promise. Texas may or may not be the place for you. A person really needs to experience it first hand to make that decision.

Texas is a place for people who love anything outdoors, have any desire to own massive amounts of land (thousands of acres easily attainable), BBQ, swimming and toobing practically year round, very lax alcohol laws, horses, playing cowboy, shooting guns, very large fires, football, etc, etc.

All of your bigger cities have very upscale areas and people that are into expensive cars and eating on a golden plate, but most of them are either here temporarily, or still like to be a Texan on the weekends.
