Many scurry want information, heated conversations, sleepless nights, conferences with people, to be attentive to what's taking place around you. I wish to be seen being a human, rather than as an musician or politician. I don't got into politics to become superstar. I am one. I also don't got into politics because I'd like additional money. I curently have more than enough to live a good life as well as my children. I also don't got into politics to make sure "a warm place". I don't decided randomly PSD. I wish to become involved. I decided PSD, because that is clearly a big and solid party, which is dependant on concepts of equality and public justice, fighting for something of social security, and because I am hoping to maintain a promise, to aid me in my own tasks. Elena Udrea isn't my rival. I've my own advertising campaign. When the contracandidat is normally more powerful, you harder wanna earn." ”
