Where do I start answering that question? Texas has never given up on the reality that it used to be a separate country. A wild west mentality has given Texas some of the loosest regulations in the United States. The recent weather problems with its separate power grid is only the latest disaster to hit Texas. Who knew that Texas was the only stand-alone power grid in the Country? I guess a multi-state power grid is too socialist for freedom-loving Texans. How does freedom feel when you don't have power for days and then have to clean up the water damage from broken pipes?
