Constitutions are not designed for metaphysical or logical subtleties, for niceties of expression, for critical propriety, for elaborate shades of meaning, or for the exercise of philosophical acuteness or judicial research. They are instruments of a practical nature, founded on the common business of human life, adapted to common wants, designed for common use, and fitted for common understandings.

Texas used to extend that way, guess we could again if they're interested.

Sure, the upper peninsula of MI isn't connected to the lower part by land either.

Wouldn't it be fun if counties all across the country seceded from their state and joined the State of Texas?

Was referring to the original map of the Republic, but England had colonies all around the globe so I see no reason why it wouldn't work. :)
