I also remember that Oklahoma passed one of the toughest anti illegal immigration bills, head over to that forum for the details.
Yep. True story.

Yup Oklahoma is quite conservative. The most conservative people in Congress are from Oklahoma. The one Democratic Congressman from Oklahoma was included in the "Dirty Dozen" by some environmental group and was elected to the board of the directors of the National Rifle Association. So right up the OP's alley.

Still it's possibly more Bible-oriented than he wants, but maybe not. Major County, Oklahoma has went for the Republican since Landon and they seem to have a mix of religions.

And interestingly, OK is the highest in terms of percent population who are all or part Native American, IIRC.

Hmmm ... maybe, in spite of all the fascination Lefty university profs have with indigenous people, indigenous people themselves are far more conservative than most university profs.

Actually Alaska has the highest percentage of Native Americans. Although if we're counting "part Native American" it might be Oklahoma.

I think American Indians are generally more conservative than University professors, but most counties with American-Indian/Native-American majorities are fairly Democratic. Rolette County, North Dakota is about the only consistently Democratic county in its state. Apache County, Arizona is pretty solidly Democratic. The only Republican-leaning counties I find with Native American majorities are Mellette County, South Dakota and San Juan County, Utah (Navajo, Ute). Although voting information on Alaska boroughs is harder to find.

Still a great many American Indians are Evangelical Protestants, Catholics, or of conservative "Indian initiated" forms of Christianity. So I'd imagine many fall into the "Economically Left/Socially Conservative" spectrum that the media and political world likes to ignore. (It reared its head with Bart Stupak, but they were happy to nip that in the bud as quick as possible)

Haven't you ever seen an Indian redneck? There's plenty of them where I live.
