>They [Texans], quite literally, believe that they are the best people in the world.
Well, I've been to SF and I was quite surprised by the number of USA flags which were displayed there, so apparently it's not only Texas..
And nationalism isn't a good thing in my book as each country has a lot of skeletons in its closets..
>USA government != USA people
Well, USA people still elected Ronald Reagan, Bush Jr (twice!!), elections which were quite surprising for a foreigner like me (not that us French did much better with Sarkozy..).
