Texas Welcomes Freedom Loving New Yorkers – Sounds Good To Me!


Moving to Texas sounds like a better idea every day. Heck, the Attorney General there is inviting freedom loving New Yorkers to move to his state.

(Greg) Abbott, a possible candidate for governor of Texas in next year’s election, used campaign money to buy ads on websites of news organizations in New York City and Albany.

One ad says in classic Western script: “WANTED: Law abiding New York gun owners seeking lower taxes and greater opportunities.”

Clicking on the ad leads to a Facebook page touting the virtues of Texas, including the fact that the state has no income tax so “you’ll be able to keep more of what you earn and use that extra money to buy more ammo.”

Abbott told Reuters the ads are a “way to tweak our liberal friends up in the Northeast.”

“It is tongue in cheek, but there is a deeper message here,” he said. “Texas really does stand as the last bastion of ultimate freedom in this country. Over the last decade, more than 4 million people moved to this state, and one reason is freedom and one reason is economic opportunity.” (Read More)

Abbott also said he will also challenge any gun ban Congress may pass. Good for him.

The only problem is relocating a business based on an existing customer base. Sigh. Maybe some day…
