Review of Indiana, Indiana

Great If You Are A Republican
Star Rating - 12/5/2011
Indiana made history in 2008 when it voted democrate for the first time in a presidential election in like 46 or 64 years...all though the state goes through periods where leaders work in a bipartisan manner like the senator team of center leaning Republican Richard Lugar and Blue Dog Democrate Evan Bayh. But like all good things that team came to an end and Mr. Lugar is left standing alone on Capital Hill defending the middle ground for those of us who still believe it exists. Rhe state wasted untold amounts of my tax dollars to amend the state's constitution to criminalize same sex unions. That was the deal breaker for me. Seperation of church and state does not exist here. Leave your union membership at the door. Expect everyone around you here to assume you did NOT vote for Obama. And don't expect the local high school to teach your children evolution side by side w/creationism like federal law mandates. They just see that as some no good outsiders oppinion...unless of course that outsider is Jesus Christ or one of his followers. Think Chicago's got gangster political problems? Who do you think it's little sibling Indianapolis learned from? There's still a lot of those old partnerships thriving here today. I thought that maybe when my generation got old enough we would help pull politics into the middle around here, but not enough of the old, white, rich, protestant, men have vacated their positions yet. Too socially conservative and Christian based politics here for me to wanna spend another 35 years here. Getting out ASAP
