Texas Bolo Ties Everything really is bigger in Texas!
If there is a state in the US that is the most proud state it has to be Texas! And it’s no surprise that there is a category of bolo ties dedicated to the state of Texas. Many Texas Bolo Ties are available with a popular bolo being the Texas Longhorn, Texas Ranger, and the state of Texas symbol. Of course we would be remiss if we didn’t mention cowboys too. Cowboy Bolo Ties
are a part of Texas Americana too.
If you’re thinking that “pride” can’t be part of the list itself, think again. How many states can you think of, with citizens who have so much pride for their state, add ‘Texas’ to everything– just to make it better? The pride Texans have for our state goes farther back than the California gold rush and is an intricate part of our everyday life, but don’t take my word for it…come to any city in Texas, find a good/busy area of town and shout something like “Texas sucks and I wish we could give it back!!” But you best make funeral arraignments ahead of time. Sure, every state has a little pride, but nothing beats Texan pride (this is where all non-Texans roll their eyes).
Everything really is bigger in Texas! At 268,596 square miles, Texas is the second largest state behind only Alaska. With 25.1 million people, according to the 2010 U.S. Census, it is the second most populous behind only California. Texas has the largest state capitol building and the highest speed limit (85 miles per hour along a stretch of toll road between Austin and San Antonio); it’s also the nation’s leading cattle, cotton and oil producer. “Size always went with macho,” explained Richard B. McCaslin, a history professor at the University of North Texas. “It’s all part of that pride of Texas—being bigger, stronger, better, faster, richer.” Of course, bigger is not always better: Texas’ adult obesity rate stands at over 30 percent, and it emits more than twice as many greenhouse gases as any other state.
One of the reasons why Texans love their state so deeply is because we are taught, from an early age, to love Texas. We’re required to take Texas History, not just U.S. History, or World History, but Texas History. How many states can say that?
