I think leaving ALL of those major philosophical differences to be decided at the state level would go a long way toward satisfying both sides. Move where the laws suit you! Yes, it would probably divide the country but obviously it would better suit the two sides.
How can that be argued with! The federal gov't will not give up that power though.
Oh, and I'll bet it would become much more apparent what works and what doesn't because states left to their own control would leave them to fail or succeed based on thir own choices. I like that idea. For example: legalize all drugs? Let's see how that works out for you. Give away free healthcare? Let's see how that works out for you... And on the other end of the spectrum, allow everyone to open carry guns? Let's see how that works out... I think the results would be very telling.
