    Real Texans would, too.  (argue against the inclusion of Texas as part of the South. 'Cept maybe deep piney woods folks.)

      but Texas. I am from San Antonio, I know the mentality. My friends cannot believe I left and never want to go back. They are shocked.

        Yup. My mom was a proud member of the Daughters of the Texas Revolution.

        I'm going to change my signature after the election:
        Texan born, bred and fled.

          Even though I've been away forever, I do consider myself a Texan. I never considered myself a Southerner. I grew up in SA and the DFW area.  I went to school in east Texas, and well, things are a bit different there.

          The family was very proud of the pioneer & TX revolution cred. I don't know if it was changing times or the shame of defeat, but they never talked about the civil war.

        My friend recently left New York to go to college in Texas where she has some family. She sent me an e-mail saying that she couldn't cash a check at the grocery store because she didn't have a Texas driver's license. They would not accept her New York license, so she showed the clerk her passport. The clerk said, "We can't use that as ID. You have to have a Texas driver's license." In Texas, a local driver's license trumps a U.S. passport. Is Texas part of the U.S. these days or did they secede without telling us?
