I was wondering if America ever split into 2 halves, red=Republican and blue=Liberal, what do you think the outcome would be? I was thinking that even though Liberals hate Conservative views (and vise versa), they're Liberal views couldn't survive without Conservative, but Conservative would be okay at least for a while without Liberals. Most businesses (job suppliers) and the people who pay the most taxes that keep America going tend to lean Republican. Also, most violent crimes occur in low income Liberal districts. On top of that, most Liberals are against guns and want to depend on the government to protect them or do not think that crime is bad enough to need any protection at all. On the other hand, there would be no or less of safety net for low income people as well as a less tolerance for gays, minorities, nonchristains, government regulation of companies, and other social and environmental issues on the Republican side... Even with that said, I'm just wondering how would Liberalism be able to survive without Republican footing the bill and supplying the "low paying" jobs that Liberals are always complaining about?


In you're opinion, what would a split America look like? Does each side actually need the other, or can both sides survive without one another?

Do Liberals need Republicans and vise versa?

Yes, both parties need the 'other guys' to point fingers at. It keeps people from looking at the whole picture and realizing both parties pretty much suck and put the country's interests in at best a poor second place to their party's interests.

Splitting America would be a bit harder to do than getting a divorce.
