Texas for Texans - video of growth fundamentals of this state

Texas continues to grow despite the economy. At the heart of it is the "Texaplex", those cities where housing continues to boom, new jobs created, and major corporations find inexpensive corporate headquarters. Based on the information provided in this video, our challenge is how to absorb this growth or possibly discourage it on behalf of preserving our environment. To me, this means we need to consider how we can continue to flourish without destroying our beautiful state. The stats are impressive and instills a sense of state pride, but should we be a population sponge for the United States?

There is little wonder that some people think about separation from the the other states and reforming back into am independent nation rather than being part of a country. I do not promote such a position, but I see why some people do.
