When preparing our next directional vote we realized just how much bigger Texas was than the other States we are currently bordering. It’s bigger in population, it’s bigger in size, and it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that it’s bigger in popularity.
We have assembled a team of unlikely allies (Arkansas, Missouri, and Iowa) that may have a chance against Texas based on size, population, and attractions. It’s still not an entirely fair fight:
Texas(24,782,302) > Arkansas(2,889,450) + Missouri(5,987,580) + Iowa(3,007,856)
Texas(268,820) > Arkansas(53,179) + Missouri(69,709) + Iowa(56,272)
But, from a voting perspective a vote for either option sends our trip in very different directions. A vote for the Arkansas, Missouri, and Iowa coalition will ultimately send us from the French Quarter in New Orleans all the way to the cornfields of Iowa (with visits to the Ozarks, Hot Springs, and the St. Louis Arch along the way). Or, a vote for Texas sends us through it’s eastern border towards Houston and Austin and with Texas being so big we will need your help to decide which direction to travel next (West vs. North)
Should Arkansas, Missori, and Iowa have listened to the saying “Don’t mess with Texas” a bit more attentively? Vote now to decide.
