But as somebody who sees himself equal parts New Englander, Cincinnatian & Texan based on where I've lived, I can say that millions of decent and hopeful people live in Texas & that there is a lot of hopeful forward-looking energy here.
The image above suggests we should take a look at the whole picture and not just at our own limited conceptions.
I can't explain all the anger that seems to show itself at the voting booth, but I can say we have many good things in Texas.
You'd do well to come & visit Texas to see for yourself.
It is always a mistake to generalize about millions of people. This is just as it is almost always a mistake to generalize about the individuals we meet in day-to-day life.
