Last night, while America slept, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union in a historic referendum that has caused a bit of a stir in the world.
People in the U.S. had some feelings about Brexit.
But someone posed this very important question.
To which the answer was...
The Brexit movement renewed hope for some people who want Texas to secede from the U.S.
And thus #Texit was born.
The state's secessionist movement is small, but has been growing increasingly mainstream. In May, the secessionists almost got away with making Texas Republicans vote on their cause.
However, the Supreme Court ruled that secession was unconstitutional in a 1869 case involving Texas.
