So you see, unless you are a 60 year old, rich, white, highly educated man, you are not represented in congress.  If you are not represented in Congress, then who is?  Well, other senators, congressmen and their ilk (those in the same brackets)

If you want real representation, then take ever opportunity to vote young, female, Hispanic, African American.

Take back America.  Get out and vote, not just in the general election when it is too late because the candidates will almost surely be white, older and rich.
