Looks like they are listening intently.

It's good to see people interested in politics. Sadly, here there are people who have no clue what is going on, yet vote. That is dangerous. Of course, I want everyone to vote, but they should inform themselves of the issues first.

I hate political speeches, you never know what to belive.

Democracy in action.

The crowd is attentive. The empty space in the photo makes the scene seem orderly.

I've become a bit like Randy over the years. Good to see that there was a bit of a crowd though.

Apathy runs rampant.

VP, I think you already know what my feelings are regarding politicians... The Portuguese will elect a new government in a few months and the political parties campaign, although not official yet, is already unbearable! They speak as if they had nothing to do with the economic and social mess we've been living for four years... YUCK!
