Hey President Nader! Won't you introduce us to your running mate? We expect you might have a team player in mind. The democratic nominee? Let's see a team effort to multiply electability. Run with your team. We know who we'd get with George Bush and don't care who we'd get with John Kerry.
Here is opportunity for which more than half of America has been waiting. America's best hope to dump corporate government and two party stranglehold. A true Independent candidate for millions of Independent voters. Voters who dared not hope for any meaningful change as a result of this November election. A candidate who could win election with just over one third of vote. A candidate who will speak for disaffected and disenfranchised Americans.
Try to imagine a President who will veto every corporate give away Congress passes, for four to eight years. Ralph is a spoiler all right. Not for Democrats who thought electability was all that mattered; but for all of us who have had enough of puppets of corporate money. We know Ralph is no friend of corporate power and this is his main reason for providing America an alternative. Thank you Ralph! America is indebted for your patriotism. You have redefined word for us.
I recently wrote it would be worth a twenty year effort to empower third parties to compete with good buddy, just us, Democans in Washington, D.C. Imagine how an Independent, no party President could advance that cause in four years. Maybe party American people have been catering is nearly over.
Democrats lost White House in 2000, minute their electable candidate called George Bush and conceded a close election, before votes were counted or contested. Because Democrats can't see or appreciate truth that they had backed a quitter, they blamed a Republican court and Ralph Nader for Bush victory. Now they are blaming Ralph for this year's defeat. It is good they can read writing on wall and proclaim it. Maybe having someone to blame is what matters most to Democrats. As long as they are out of power, they have plenty of people to blame. Let's give them what they want.
Democrats are supporting not their best candidate, but one they are guessing can beat George Bush. Anybody but Bush they cry! John Kerry is an anybody - he'll do. He could not defeat President Bush if Ralph Nader did not run.
Ralph Nader just made a Kerry victory impossible and is real and only alternative to our current President(s). The only candidate who can defeat him hem this election. This is precisely because he can split vote three ways, mobilize youth, Independents, non voters and bring people to polls that are fed up with business as usual. That segment of America, over half electorate, can and probably will make Ralph Nader a shoe - in.
Democrats who supported Howard Dean should be backing Ralph. Democrats who supported Wesley Clark should be supporting Ralph. Those of us who would support Dennis Kucinich, can support Ralph Nader. I think Dennis might be an Independent pretending to be a Democrat. One who may be waiting until after convention to support Ralph. Wouldn't Dennis make a good Vice President?
