  3. No. But try and take some advice and become part of the solution, not part of the problem.

    Hate filled invective establishing that (a) National is Evil, and (b) John Key is Evil, provides no particular insight or analysis to political problems.

    Also suggesting solutions to said political problems that aren't grounded in any sort of political reality and are therefore useless tends to short-circuit any influence you may have.
