Relocate to Texas..?
I've had enough. Our government have betrayed us massively over Brexit. Local politicians won't listen to anything I have to say about the state of our local area. We're having our culture and way of life destroyed by mass immigration and foreign cultures. The roads / traffic everywhere I go is unbearable. House prices are ridiculous. Saving rates are in the gutter. They tax the living shit out of me on my salary, other property I own, fuel costs, council tax, TV licence and more. Gay/Transgender agenda is constantly being promoted (even police cars & vans have been decorated in rainbow colors!). Policemen walking around with rainbow painted nails. Businesses everywhere flying the rainbow flags. I wake up this morning to the news the EU have decided all new vehicles will be built with speed limiting devices controlling how fast you can drive and motion trackers based on which road you're on. I could go on and on...

I'm tired of it all, and not having a voice. Whenever a concern is raised, it's brushed to one side and ignored, and you're slapped with a label to silence you.

My company have offered me a position in our Texas office, close to Houston. I've visited 8 times, and from what I've seen, it's very different to the UK in many ways...

Has anyone done a similar move?

What are the pro's / cons for a Brit moving to the US..?

I meant liberal hotbed compared to more rural Texas and small towns. Big cities always have a large proportion of libtards - even in Texas. If you want solid conservative environment, look outside the big cities.

Not really. I grew up in Houston so it would depend on where you live.

Suburbian areas just outside of Houston's are Trump's kind but if you live right in Houston, it tends to be under Democrat rule. It is a HUGE city. You literally have to drive an hour just to get out of houston.

Sounds to me like theres alot of jealous folks that would love the opportunity to move to Texas but since they can't, they'll try to put down the state as much as possible.

You'll love the Liberty area. Far enough away from downtown but still close enough to the loop if you need to traverse there. I'm south of downtown in Galveston county

Not true... just more proportionally in the mix.

The climate is a little hot and humid, but at least there are jobs, conservative people and good living amenities. I would only caution you to study floodplain maps if you want to buy a home there. Texas floods and gets other bad weather. I would take my time looking and rent for a while until you’re sure you like it and it works for you.

Also be aware that there are just as many gooney cults over here as there are in UK, just as many insane gender inverted masonic lunatics all over the place, including gov & corporate. I would trust no one. I would buy a firearm and KNOW how to use it, but be very quiet about owning that. If you have a family, you will also want to pay close attention to their safety.

Texas is currently experiencing a huge influx of new residents, as people pour out of other states due to high cost of living and taxes.

Re: Relocate to Texas..?
I was born & raised in Texas, but have lived in many different states across the US. I have always come back home as quickly as possible. This time I have no reasons or desire to leave again. I’ve lived in the NE Piney Woods, DFW & now in the San Antonio area. I love the Hill Country but I highly recommend the Piney Woods as well.

Welcome to Texas!

**Edited to add...
My neighbors are Brits who moved here 30+ years ago. They love Texas & go back to GB every couple of years to visit. They vow to never return for the very reasons you want to leave. That said, they are thinking about moving because the Texas heat is really bothering them now that they are getting older (65+). They are looking for a more moderate climate.
