That's... interesting. According to their website here
Indianapolis City Council is 16 (D), 13 (R). Former Mayor Bart Peterson is a Democrat and was mayor from '00 to '08. Maybe you don't pay attention.
Maybe you're jusy playing the 'hope nobody checks' game. I don't know, but you're wrong and it took me about 8 seconds to prove it.
Indiana has a state debt of about $37 billion. This is even after nearly 40% of the budget is Federal funds. When your bank account reads
-$37,000,000,000.00 I'm pretty confident that is the opposite of "money in the bank". The unemployment rate is 8.2%, the state economy is 40th in
the nation even though it's the 15th most populous state, the average income is $35,689.00 which is also 40th. I'm not sure what your definition of
a healthy economy is.
The crime statistics per 100,000 of Indiana versus US in parantheses: total 3,494 (3,295), violent 332 (386), property 3,162 (2,909), homicide 4.8
(4.7). If you can say that Indiana has low crime then the US as a whole is even better. These are 2011 numbers since they're the most recent complete
Corruption? Lincoln Plowman, Bud Gray, George Pabey, Jefferson City's fishy audit, Carl Brizzi, Tim Morrison, serious questions concerning the State
Gaming Commission. There's a start on some recent corruption problems.
As for your last bit, that's total speculation and meaningless.
