A lot of people want to shout, "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it
anymore." But they have no workable alternative. We have a workable
alternative that people mad as hell about the voting system should be supporting. We
can tell them about it. Lots of people can say we have a good idea. But
still, we're not popular.

Politicians are generally incapable of supporting something that's not
popular (not everyone of them is incapable, but the vast majority are not capable of
it). However, we are becoming less unpopular. If we keep it up, we will
become popular. Then, they will support us.

Thanks.
