  1. THE SOCIAL POLITICAL PARTY IN ROMANIA IS SUPPORTING CORRUPTION!!!
    They have already adopted a law that protects all convicted politicians
    who stole money from the state under 200 000.
    I am a ROMANIAN, I want all CORRUPT POLITICIAN to quit, first DRAGNEA,
    the leader of PSD!!!!
    PSD is the political party that came to power after the communism was
    over in 1989, they have sold all the factories and confirmed them
    bankrupt, people lost their jobs, then around 3 million Romanians had to
    go to work as immigrants in Spain and Italy, meanwhile politicians like
    Nastase, Hrebenciuc, Sova, Vanghelie, etc, had their bank accounts full
    with MILLIONS OF EUROS. We don't have hospitals anymore, the doctors
    went to work in Germany and France for a better salary because here the
    government are treating them as carpets on which you wipe your dirty
    feet. Teachers are buying their clothes from second hand because they
    don't have money to buy new ones, we don't have social services, nobody
    cares about THE PEOPLE THAT ARE PROTESTING ON THE STREET, THE GOVERNMENT
    DOESN'T SEE THEM!!!
    THEY ARE INVISIBLE PEOPLE!!! NOBODY CARES!!
    THEY WANT THIS LAW FOR THEM AND THEIR LEADER LIVIU DRAGNEA!!!
