I'm sorry Patt. I agree with you about so much. But the people I wish would CRAWL into the woodwork Are, in this order, McCain, Clinton and Obama. I'd take Nader over any of them 100 times and though I can't vote (being a resident not a citizen) my husband will be voting for him with my fill support. when any of the others take on the Federal Reserve, commit to socialized medicine, to real taxes on corporate profits, to pulling out of Iraq they'll get my interest (not my support). If he's a threat to Obama or Clinton then their answer is simple - ADOPT HIS POLICIES AND HIS HONESTY. They they will get the vote he might take from them.

I agree, Sara. Ralph Nadar talks the truth. If you have never heard Nader or his former running mate Winona La Duke speak, you're missing out on hearing 2 outstanding individuals talk the truth. Not many people are willing to stand up and speak against Big Corporations. Nader knows he can't win, but wants to get crucial issues out to the "mainstream" media that simply aren't talked about.

I agree with Blue Bunting, this is really old and it was also predictable. I'm sorry to say that a vote for Nader is a clean vote for McCain. Kucinich speaks the truth but sadly he was not voted in, he did however have the grace to step out and following that he continues to speak out. Leaders can speak up without compromising the election. We obviously NEED a NON-Republican leader NOW, so we need to go with what we have, our future and that of our children depend on it. Please continue to speak the truth, but use cast votes wisely.

With Ralph Nader in the race, he may take up the 12% of undecided voters.
Clinton and Ombama have some serious gaffs during some of their speeches. At least Obama told the truth about how some people feel in Pennsylvania, while Clinton told outright lies that never happened in her life. Back packs and book bags were never used in the 60s and 70s, and were the new kid on the block in the 80s to present. I never carried a back pack or a book bag. Never needed one. I saw the actual video of Clinton getting off the plane in Somalia, and there was no sniper fire or any other gun fire. It took her two weeks to figure out an excuse that she was over tired and misspoke. It's funny how an out right lie is now determined to be a misspoken statement. A page right of the Bush play book.. I'll vote for a frog before I vote for Clinton. My decision has nothing to do with her being a woman. I think a woman would be a great president, but not Hillary. She has too much baggage left over and her "who do you want to answer the phone at 3:00am with the sleeping children, who were not really asleep is nine years old. Some of those same children in her ad are going to be voting age in the upcoming November election, and they said they don't want Clinton answering the phone. They are backing Obama.

Nader is a Democratic vote stealer. If he was not in the race it would either be Clinton or Obama. But we need to face the truth. No president can do whatever they want unless their last name is Bush, Cheney, and or Rove...

Noted, thanks Gregory.

Is Ralph looking to gain only money from the public for this involvement?
He comes and then he gone, doesn't seem like hes serious about running.
Ron paul on the other hand is a real man of change and peace, but unfortunately he doesn't get any TV time, I wonder why.

Yes, Diana, Winona La Duke and Nader are two dynamic-truth-speaking individuals. I've heard both speak, and was deeply moved to finally hear truth spoken. If a politico speaks truth, they don't have a chance of winning it seems because the majority of the U.S. population only listens to mainstream news instead of searching alternative publications to learn the "rest of the story". I always mention the works of Howard Zinn, and suggest everyone reads it. Zinn is one of the best! He has a new book out,"A People's History of American Empire" check it out:

While I don't have any patience with the sham of electoral politics in the U.S., Winona LaDuke is one of my heros. LaDuke's book, "All Our Relations," is a classic and THE primer for anyone who wants to understand capitalism and globalization.

Even though they are running in hopes of educating people, participating in electoral politics lends credence to the sham that passes for democracy in this country. And their educational efforts are doomed to failure because political partisans use their emotions rather than logic:

Psychology of Partisan Politics

Waste of time and effort. Much better to focus on those who do understand and just ignore the rest until after the new administration settles in and they see that nothing has changed and might be open to reason again.

Nader has been steadfast in his conviction of integrity in politics along with fair play and equal rights for nearly 50 years. The Democrats are part of the Fascist setup just like the Republicans. They are both bought and paid for by Corporate money. Kucinich is gone now. I really think Nader is just trying to get people to understand that a two party system like ours just does not work for the people. I also recommend people read about Winona LaDuke as Mark suggests. LaDuke,"We don't want a bigger piece of the pie. We want a different pie."

Thanks Greg! There is practical no major difference between the two parties. It is hard to choose between rotten apples and oranges.
