“I feel happy that we’re now able to see what goes on behind those doors and see what people are thinking. It gives us an opportunity to do something about it.”

“I have absolutely zero confidence in our elected officials. It saddens me tremendously to think that this great country is being led by people who don’t know what they’re doing.”
Josef Lord
