There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

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. :)
