Hi, It´s Marta !!

I read this post and although it´s very old I want to write a comment.
I agree with these people called ''angry-ones'' and support them because I think that if you don´t like the government, the politicians, how politicians solve problems or the way to solve this problems you have to go outside and try to change all of this things.
In my opinion, you can´t complain about how things are, sitting on your sofa.
