I wouldn't say "more traditional values". Instead, I would say "clear, direct, thinking". Texas will talk endlessly about their high school football team, but anything more serious is put to rest in three sentences and a quick decision.

The common man, perhaps. The texas politicians are another story.

Another insider joke (sort of). On Catholic radio today, I heard something like this:

Host: "You mean all of Texas isn't rural and conservative?"

Guest:"No, there's Austin."

I met a Texan chap once, he came to NZL on a student exchange. He was a fine fellow, kind hearted and a real gentleman to boot.

It made me LMAO when I found he brought a year's supply of toothpaste because he thought we were all running around in flax skirts living in mud huts.

He also thought we didn't have roads, so brought several good pairs of tramping* boots.

*We call hiking tramping. He was somewhat insulted at first when we asked him if he enjoyed a good tramp.

The look of horror on his innocent little face was explanation enough!

Actually, not so little face, the guy was built like a brick outhouse.

As an aside, tramp is used the same way here as overseas, though not very often.
