29. What am I against?
I guess it's just too hard for me to explain to you. I don't know who to be for or against in this situation and I don't care. I just want the president of my country to quit acting like he's king of the world. That's it.

I can guarantee you, no matter whose side I picked in this situation the game would end the same. I do not matter to the process. I am not a player. I'm not even a spectator. I'm a passer-by. Now, I'm moving on.
