Joenation, FryDaddyJr, and other extreme liberals like them are unrealistic agitators, for whom practicality will always take a back seat to idealism. Their progressive ilk all want to "transform" the United States of America, lock, stock and barrel into their vision of a utopian nation in one fell swoop. Well, the scientific community works very differently than that. As with all good experiments, a small scale test is in order to prove a concept before implementation on a grand scale. I think we should put them all on their own big island where they can show us the errors of our ways. Guam might be an ideal location. There they can develop Utopia to their heart's delight . . . an independent, self-sustaining entity, with its own laws, resources, etc. If, after 100 years duration it turns out to be what we as a nation wish to adopt, well then we will have seen the results. That would give them the chance to convince us less clairvoyant conservatives to make a better informed, data-driven decision. I'm sure that, being the social scientists that they claim to be, they'd agree that to commit to such a vision without having seen the results first would be complete insanity. Unfortunately, I think they lack the patience for such an experiment.
