To our north is Wyoming. We also to our south have the four corners, where Colorado meets New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah — several of which are already conservative states troubled only by the influx of illegals who have the potential to swing elections (and in fact, this has been the Democrat’s logistical playbook).
And then there’s always Texas — which while not contiguous — may just one day like having as part of its state a mountainous outpost filled with those who are largely self-sufficient and who cling to their guns and their religion when they’re being told they need to forget all that garbage and just embrace the new normal.
Why Texas might want that I can’t say for certain. But then, new and fresh ideas tend to spring up when opportunity allows them room to grow.
This is an interesting notion. There is nothing that constitutionally says that the territory of a state must be contiguous. And I could easily see a Texas with outposts from coast to coast.
Imagine a Texas governor traveling around the country, not to cherry-pick local industries, but to offer annexation and safe haven to disgruntled liberty-minded conservatives?
Okay, sure, probably a pipe dream. If nothing else, though, it might be fodder for a fairly interesting SF novel. Maybe even the one I’ll be writing next.
