Welcome to the apocalypse! The entirety of the world has been nuked. Only two states in the US have survived: Texas and California. They must battle over resources. Who would win?

Texas is conservative which means they have weapons, California is liberal which means they will call the Texans racists and sexists

Texas. Cali doesn't like firearms.

The question is misleading. Oklahoma would win it all.

Texas easily. California would be already essentially disarmed by itself.

That's a joke California cannot do anything right, let alone beat a state that knows what they're doing

Zerg vs Protoss? Tough call. If the Zerg are fast enough, they could win, but will ultimately completely destroy that for which they are fighting. If it's a long game, I'd say Protoss.

Our navy would be far gayer and superior. We also have better natural defenses to the east where not only lie our rugged mountains, but many of our reddest, NRA loving counties.

A California Navy? I agree, nothing could be gayer...

I think California would win, because their population is a bit bigger and they're right on the coast. It wouldn't be that hard for California to train up an army. They do have almost 8mil gun owners.

I think Texas would win, although their population is a bit smaller they are right on the Gulf. It would be easy for Texas to build an army that already knows how to fight & shoot straight. Texas has 9mil gun owners, a million more than California.

I think a 30% population advantage is pretty significant.

Not to mention that California's "guns" suck.

California. They would just let Texas take everything and then tax the hell out of them and take it all back!

They are trained to live on taxes. They are a creative dependent lot.

Let's put it this way: California has gun control. Enough said ;)

Super liberal California who hate guns, or super conservative Texas who have people who respect the 2nd amendment? Whoa, tough choice.

Not all of Cali hates guns. It's just the libs.

Which is most of the major cities in California.

Texas, of course. Guard the border. Shoot anyone outside our borders trying to get in. We have resources and will. Cali will burn, quake, toke, or regulate themselves into non-existence.

Careful, the libs here want to regulate everyone, not just Californians.

In the two state apocalypse, we will use your regulations for toilet paper.

No brainer. Most of us know weapons well and have several of them.

I'm going with California. The gun laws may be much stricter here, but no one follows them and we have some pretty strong gangs. I think it would at least be a good fight.

We also have more people in prison than any other state and at least five times the population of Texas. I still say we have a fighting shot.

He'll you guys have a larger population than Canada. All the gun nuts on here don't realize if you compared the number of conservative gun people vs. the number of Cali gun people it would probably be more in Cali.

Let's see, rifles in Cali, can't hold more then 5 rounds, and no mags, Texas rifles can have mags with unlimited rounds, plus they have 3 times as many as CA. I think Tx, wins hands down!

The Mexicans. They have been biding their time playing "The Long Game" waiting for their chance to take back what they believe is rightfully theirs.

Darn. I was hoping for their help. We could really use all of those illegal guns they have down there.

Left over guns from Operation Fast and Furious? ;P

Or left over from Cali Dem Senator Yee and his involvement which includes firearms trafficking, murder-for-hire, drug distro, trafficking in contraband, & money laundering.

Oh wait he was for gun control!! Lol

Oh yeah, I forgot about that... Maybe they could get some help from the Democrat MO senator that was drunk and carrying a loaded 9mm while protesting outside a police station not too long ago.

LOL. I'm planning this attack now just in case. I don't plan on losing to Texas without a fight. However, maybe I'll get lucky and be in Texas when this happens.

Do you not know what is of you speak? California is the land of gangs and minorities but all humans unite against a common enemy. It would be like if Aliens attacked earth, all of our problems with each other would cease.

Oklahoma would win it all. The question is very generous to Texas. :-)

If Texas and California are all that's left (per the question) how is Oklahoma going to win?
