I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Worse off.  The middle ground would be much better if the GOP and Dems could start cooperating just a little instead of scoring points in an effort to win the next election.

Agree again with sbdt8631. Balance is necessary for prosperity. If one or the other had full control then we would hit extremes that would not help the country.

Fun question though so I'll take a stab at a guess. Probably make a good sci-fi movie.

If conservatives ruled then the country would have a solid concrete wall on all borders so nobody can get in. The 1% would grow even richer and there would be a ton more poor people. Also people die in the streets as there is no healthcare for the poor. Slums overtake most of the country except for protected bubbles.

If liberals ruled then there would be no separation of classes as redistribution of wealth would be extreme. Also nobody would really work since everything will just be handed out to you if you need it. Most technology and factories would be shut anyway to protect the environment since they all pollute. Terrorism will increase as we stop getting involved in all wars outside our borders. Our borders also would become much more blurry as immigration will be open totally. Very little jobs available but the masses wont want to work anyway and just live off the government.

If the Republicans controlled the country we would become a Christian Theocracy where divorce, abortion and homosexuality are illegal.

If the Democrats ruled atheism would be the national religion and the Kardashians would be our spiritual leaders.

I agree too.  It's the 'fight' between the two sides that keeps us (more or less) in balance.  Without adequate opposition, people become bullies whether they mean to or not.

Kardashians? Most atheists I know hate that kind of stuff. Maybe Neil Degrasse Tyson would be leader.

Great quote. However not applicable in all situations like politics.

He must have got his quote from FoxNews.  ;)

If the Democrats ruled we would have more male-female scandals, Clinton, Edwards, etc.

If the GOP ruled we would have more male-male scandals, Larry Craig, Mark Foley, etc.

True so do I.  But the rest of the country would need to get their religion from reality TV.

U.S. Rep. Barney Frank admitted he helped his ex-lover land a lucrative post with Fannie Mae in the early 1990s while the Newton Democrat was on a committee that regulated the lending giant — but he called questions of a potential ethical conflict “nonsense.”

The rich do what the rich do to get richer, where as the deadbeats do what deadbeats do to continue to be deadbeats.
