    A sign of the times. The United States needs to understand the progressiveness of this country. A good thing. So many of us are not those that control the government of this country.


    (CNN) – In an election that broke boundaries, Hawaii elected the nation's first practicing Hindu to the U.S. House of Representatives.

    Congresswoman-elect Tulsi Gabbard, who will represent the state's second district, told CNN Monday that her election "shows the respect, diversity and love and aloha that people have in Hawaii that would allow for something like this to happen."
