    “Anyone in politics is either a criminal who is part of the problem, or a naive fool who thinks they can make a change, in which case they really have no idea how the system and/or how politics really works, or the influence that sits above politics. Why vote for a criminal or a fool??? What you have in politics is one or the other!!! Politics simply exists so that people think they have the power to vote for change. The change you are voting for is about as irrelevant.”
