    Many people think that all politicians are greedy and want to get rich doing nothing but saying slogans. Many people think that all politicians are dishonest and steal millions and millions of taxpayer money. I wonder if this man wants to go into politics because he wants lots of money without hard work, or if he believes that he can be the only honest politician. He certainly doesn’t look experienced in things like finance and law. Maybe he believes politicians don’t need to know anything, it is enough if they don’t steal public money… and maybe he’s right!

    “supported by escalator” 🙂
    I do not know how you are doing in Japan, but if you moved to America and wrote a book or a newspaper column, you would be a millionaire. Your stuff is edgy and fresh, and I can never get enough of your reporting. It is hard to pick favorite quote from the site (like “I recommend Jap taxi driver to British royal family”).
    Thanks as always for your work!

    It happens everywhere. Din anyone at all stop and talk to him? Or, does everyone in Japan have their own party that they always vote for every time?

    Almost everyone ignored him. And Japanese party and candidate system is so complicated that I cannot how to explain.

    I believe this independent candidate is trying to tell something. All you need to win an election is just some motto/slogan that will draw people to you. In my country (Turkey) the slogan is “religion”, in USA it’s “keeping our country secure”, and I believe other countries have different political parties throwing slogans to attract people. This guy waiting in front of the excelator exit, obviously is not trying to win the election. He is just trying to show people that they should not vote for slogans… They should think about how to cast their vote, how it will affect their lives… But I am someone who thinks that the republican way of governance is not the way to go. Does anyone think otherwise?
