This debate is pointless...everyone knows Chicago is the best city on earth!

Maryland is a great state. Texas is backwards in almost every way. No thanks

Vince .. that is just not true. You don't have to be rich to live well in Texas.

No state income tax, no city income tax, low cost of living and affordable housing.....I'll take Texas.

Regarding small business and national franchise registrations. I've been told by many national national national chains that they have pulled out out MARYLAND because of the over requirements and "ridicules" requirements. I have been trying to register a company in Maryland for six months that has been doing business in Virginia for ten years, and in is still not approved. This is a small business, ten employes at first. But more red tape.

Compare the number of businesses and people leaving Maryland to those leaving Texas and you will find the answer. Texas is by far the better place to live especially if you believe in freedom!

If you missed the Perry vs. O'Malley debate on #Crossfire , find it online. Fascinating and occassionally entertaining.
On @crossfirecnn Perry and O'Malley poured out factual claims. Did one stick in your head as particularly curious?

At least in Texas people don't laugh at you when you tell them you have a bunker

Is there a third option? Neither state.

O'Malley is taxing the state into poverty. People are leaving Maryland in droves. Those taking advantage of entitlements are 40% of his voting base, and 30% are gov't employees. Me, I am going to Pa.

We live in Maryland and can't wait to get out of here... and Texas is were we are going. O'Malley has destroyed this state more than any other governor in the past.. the taxes are off the charts, our schools are cheating to get the numbers up, we have a huge number of businesses leaving for surrounding states due to the taxes... I just need another 5 years to retire (early) and we are out of here. We have many friends in Texas (Austin) and the cost of living (period) is so much better that it's ridiculous. O'Smalley makes us sick!

Texas was a better place with Ann Richards - from a Texan
. @CrossfireCNN Perry & Republicans are building toll roads all over Texas. They are adding tolls to interstate highways. Mismanagement.

Texas has the best low wage jobs in the country
by Vince9/18/2013 11:11:55 PM
Bobby6...sure Texas is backwards...we happen to have a great economy, jobs, good gun laws, affordable housing, low taxes....you bet, we're really backwards from the way the rest of the country is living.

If you like working at Walmart, then Texas is your kind of place.
