All Texans chime in. Its time to secede.

Inspired by our CA bretheren (who have not 1 but TWO regional forums for their state), I think Tx is big enough to have its own regional forum.

I think Texas actually owns quite a few of the regional subforums, thanks to the quick thinking of a certain unnamed someone.

As an honorary Texan, I cast a token vote for secession.

Is Austin really part of Texas? It's looking a whole lot like California around here to me. Bad drivers, self centered egomaniacs, brunettes trying to pass themselves off as blonde's.
Oh wait...........we always had those. But I'm sure Cali is screwing us up, I just cant prove it.

So...just out of curiosity, I took a quick look at census info and found that there are approximately the same number of people in the 6 LA-area counties as there are in Texas...about 21M. I still don't understand why that area doesn't just sink into the ocean! Without a doubt though, TX is under-represented on this board (or at least in this regional forum)!

bump - c'mon guys, don't think 27 votes is going to do it. If you know any Tx members on the forums I'd suggest PM'ing them a link to this thread. I've done a few.

I thought this was a poll about Texas seceding from the US of A. As a Californian, I'd've voted for that. But it's only about whether Texas should be it's own region in BF - how disappointing. But what the heck, if they want it . . .

I don't frequent the regional section too often, but if Texas had its own forum I might.

Just voted!

Cool - we're getting there - almost 40 votes. I think a Texan forum would generate more traffic once it was created and the locals start yacking with each other...
