    We could divide a section of the country in half. One half of this section would govern by conservative ideals the other would govern using liberal philosophies. I wonder how each government would do. Is this possible? You would think that these days some computer simulations could be done to determine an outcome. What are some thoughts or ideas on this?

    The liberals wouldn't be happy with the conservatives governing themselves and would send a representative over to the conservative side on a daily basis to tell them how they should be doing things. They would also find some way to tax the conservatives.

    You'll have to find some actual Conservatives to go over there first.

    :lol::lol::lol::lol: Where have you been? Look around and you can see exactly how things would work out for the liberal model.

    Bankruptcy, destitution, poverty.

    Look at Illinois and California. Look at Detroit.

    You mean the so called Liberal California that voted for Prop 8? The one with the Republican Governor? That California?

    Yep thats the one. If you know anything about just how prop 8 got passed you would understand a few things about this state. The governor is a kennedy puppet, cators to liberal special interests and has his hands tied by liberal.

    Yep that califronia.

    Each state is already free to govern themselves by whichever ideal the people elect.


    I was thinking more along the lines of having an economic competition between the 50 states sort of like football rivalries but instead we'd somehow measure economic benchmarks and then televise the results every fiscal quarter with state cheerleaders and mascots and everything. Lol there would be federal incentives for the best preforming states and large infrastructure awards to the winning states at the end of every year!

    Corporations could buy TV advertising and the US would make a mint off the half-time show!




    Just a thought :lol:
