In a parking lot in Taos, New Mexico, I found this intriguing bumper sticker on a pickup truck (naturally) with Texas license plates:
“You may all go to hell, and I will go to Texas”
Naturally, I turned to the all-knowing, all-seeing resource of Wikipedia (ha!) to read up on the 19th-century folk hero: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Davy_Crockett.
From that omniscient resource, I learned that Crockett supposedly made the statement in 1836, after returning to Texas after an electoral defeat:
The actual quote, according to Wikipedia is, “I told the people of my district that I would serve them as faithfully as I had done; but if not, they might go to hell, and I would go to Texas.”
Gotta love a person with conviction.
