SICK and TIRED of Naderite defeatism
Nader said in 2000 his objective was to build the Greens, and yet he betrayed them. He's also said time and time again that the Democratic Party should be destroyed.

She says: "Why are you running, Ralph? Why are you doing this?"
He says: "Why not the best?"
She says: "Think a lot of yourself, eh?"

2. Back to his old tricks, too.
"Democrats are the same as Republican" BS.

Get a clue from Seattle Ralph...you and your Republican backers aren't going to con the American public a 2nd time.

Here's an idea Ralph. Go to the DNC and ask them for a million dollars. For that million, spend the next 8 months apologizing to the American people for repeating that big lie in 2000. Tell them that you've had an epiphany: Republicans are destroying this country and we need Kerry elected if democracy has any chance of continuing.

3. Democracy doesn't stand a chance until...
...we finally give up this ridiculous two party system. As US citizens we are only given the illusion of choice, but our two options are picked for us by elitists in each parties. I'll support Nadar or any third party candidate until there some real, substantial election reform is implemented.

4. Well, that ain't gonna happen this year.
So let's stick that straw man over in the corner. After we take control of our government back from the criminal cowards that run the Republican Party and after we elect a reform minded Congress, then you can hope for a different political system to be voted in.

Of course, if you like Bush, then feel free to vote for Ralph.

5. Sure, we should have 50 parties, like France did in the 70s.
That way, our government will collapse over a taxi strike. :rolleyes:

6. Yeah, Perot was no elitist. Just rich.
This isn't a parliamentary nation. Canada is. Up there.
