51. This fear of Nader works almost like homophobia!
Homophobes hate gays because they are insecure in their own sexuality, so they feel threatened by gays.

People that are secure in their own sexuality do not feel threatened by someone else's.

This fear of Nader I see in many threads in DU works almost like homophobia. I wonder if the people that are insecure in their own belief system, or in the "electability" of their candidate, are the ones that feel the most threatened by Nader.

People that are secure about their belief system and in their candidate, even if he has dropped out, do not feel threatened by a candidate like Nader who won't even have his name on the ballot of most states.

I don't see John Edwards having kittens about Nader!
