I have often had the thought that if we divided our country into 2 parts. One with all the Liberals/Progressives and the other with Conservatives. Each would their own countries and then see what both countries looked like after say 10 or 20 years. I suggest it would be like East and West German. This article says much the same thing in that if the Liberals got all their wishes they wouldn't like the results but would guess they would have no idea why things would be so bad.
