Indiana is the only state not to speak officially English in the US. so their politics is very unique.

Do they widely speak another language?

Naw.

That's our adjective for 'person from Indiana' Smiley

I used to live in Indiana and one reason might be that the people like things simple in the state.  Liberals make things really complex in their plans (healthcare for one, mainly to hide the real socialist plan behind it).  The people really hate tax raises as well.  

What can be more simple than 'the government pays for your healthcare' Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

But it's a nice white-picket-fence-and-nicely-mowed-lawns conservative place, not a guns-and-low-laxes-let's-kill-the-poor place.

And the locals are all so friendly Smiley
