    I've heard so much hype about increased diversity among the newly elected...what a joke. There is NO diversity. Before any ethnic, class, or sexual orientation, these people are Democrats and Republicans. Now that we've cast our votes, our influence as individual citizens is over. The RNC and DNC, as they have been for over 150 years, are in complete control. Republicans and Democrats are solely responsible for the deplorable social, cultural, and economic condition of our nation. Diversity? Hahahaha...
