After much political tension, the Hawaiian monarchy was overthrown in 1893 by a coalition of islanders, many of American descent, and Americans, who proclaimed a republic instead. Five years later it was annexed by the United States.
As to whether it is logical or illogical, I think the question is to ask whether Hawaii is better off or worse off, to ask whether the change was a good one, or a bad one.
