Election night was not a happy one for roughly half the country and now some people are calling for drastic measures: they want their states to secede from the country!
Americans in 35 states have signed a petition on whitehouse.gov asking that their state be allowed to withdraw from the United States (peacefully of course) and start a new government.
Most of those petitions come from solidly conservative states but there are even calls from New York, California and Oregon.
So other than being unhappy with the election results, what has some of these people so upset? We take a look at the argument from Texas in the video above.
