The western region of Texas was once made up of mostly native Americans, until the civil war. It now has a much lower population than the rest of the state, mostly consisting of Hispanic people. The major political party switched from democrat, around 1948, and it is now a conservative republican region. Livestock, petroleum and natural gases, cotton and grain, wind turbines, and agriculture are a big part of the regions resources. West is ignore the gun laws, join drug cartel and kill everyone.
