37. Absolutely, Nader has practiced what he has preached all of his life.
Nader doesn't whore himself out as major party candidates constantly do. Nader has balls and he has great ideas and intellect. That's why the two major parties were so terrified of having Nader in the 2000 debates. They were terrified of his populist, progressive message because the powers that be wanted a corporate owned candidate to win the election.

The ironic thing was that if Gore and the democratic party had not been terrified of Nader and his message he would have helped Gore by destroying Bush. Gore had no intention of actually debating Bush or exposing his horrendous Texas record. Nader would have destroyed Bush in the debates and Bush would have been a national laughingstock. Not once did Gore attack Bush's failures as governor. Hell, Gore actually agreed with most of what Bush said.

Nader called Bush "a corporation masquerading as a human being" which perfectly described Bush. Nader also called Bush a bungling governor. As my friends and I all watched the debates we all thought the same thing. We thought Gore was deliberately thowing the election because he was so incredibly inept at debating and he had zero knowledge of Bush's horrible record as governor of Texas.

The Commission on Presidential Debates, a front group headed by only one democrat and one republican decided to screw the electorate and seize control over our election process. As a result, we had a 'show' between two candidates completely funded by corrupt corporations. Nader's donors averaged less than $50 a person and Nader was owned by no one.

It's sad how so many people whine and whine about the current political climate when THEY created it by voting the same way and expecting different results, a sign of insanity.

Nader is a national treasure and a TRUE progressive. How many 'progressives' can you count in democratic 'leadership'?
