9. I was kind of hoping we'd go for Elgin,

7. Love Austin.

I lived in Dallas for three years and it is light blue in the city and "urban" areas, but Austin is the bright blue dot in that big ass sea of red.

10. That is fantastic

Austin is where the growth is coming from in that state. How well would the state do if Austin seceeded?
