Re: Which US state has the most pride?

As far as the nation knows, they'd think Texas. And they'd think right. The Lone Star State. We put our flag on everything; beer cans, trash cans, flower fields you name it. The rest of the nation knows what our flag looks like. Sad to say that I think I only know what about three or four other state's flags look like. Western movies. Real cowboys, rodeos, barbeque, etc.

However my personal answer will differ...

This maybe because I live right next to Louisiana, but I have to tip my hat to them for their state pride. They get straight up ruthless when it comes to their sports teams. Like nothing I've ever seen. And have you ever been to New Orleans or Baton Rouge or Lafayette? They cram their culture down your throat in every possible corner of the spectrum. Zydeco music, LSU, crawfish, mardi gras, the New Orleans Saints, the fleur de lis, gumbo, and the list goes on. I like all of that stuff, but jeez they never give it a break. I have friends and family that live in Louisiana and I'm honestly not trying to sound like a jerk here, but when I receive gifts and/or cards from them it always has something to do with the Cajun culture. Like a constant reminder "look where I'm from"

Those Louisianans have lots of pride. LOTS.

TEXAS!

Shucks, during World War 2, when Army Rangers captured a bunch of Germans, the Germans could NOT understand that it wasn't the Texas Rangers who had captured them!

And don't forget Santa Ana trying to sneak out of Texas in a private's uniform, after being soundly defeated at San Jacinto on April 21, 1836. (Battle of San Jacinto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) Forevermore known as a coward to all real Texicans, Texians, and Texans.

Yep, I live in New Mexico, but I grew up in South Texas and I shall always be a Texan.

I am not from Texas, but when we go there to visit our daughter, everything we see is branded with the Lone Star.
I have to say it's Texas.

I have to agree, I love this place... not to mention we live in the best part of wyoming, the Big Horn Basin! and we are a short drive up to beautiful montana too so I think we have the best of both worlds we can easily enjoy both states but at the end of the day we come home to wide open spaces of home

Re: Which US state has the most pride?

I would have to say Montana, Wyoming and Texas are the top 3. I live in New Mexico but that is only because of my work. The only nice thing about this state are elk and oryx.

Other than that, I have as much pride in this state as I do in the phlegm that you cough up in the morning when you have a cold. The state is way too off its rocker for me.
