  1. This guy have nothing to do… Is a clown trying to call the attention of the people and is useless… Instead of present a plan on how his party will manage the country and what to fix and do to improve the life of A&B, he just spends his time talking about the bad things that others politicians do… He believes that the people will turn back those politicians and follow him..
