Ralph Nader: The People's Choice
30 Oct 2000
Ralph Nader is the only rational choice is this presidentical election. If you believe in free speech and a free media, you must vote for Ralph Nader to send that message to Washington.

Ralph Nader is the thinking American's choice for President.

Build the Green Party, Build the Party of Joy and Justice.

A Vote for Nader is a Vote for Survival.

I think the best reason to vote for Nader is that if Gore loses, the progressives will have broken the tradition of the democrats being able to take the left for granted. It would only mean a change in rhetoric for the next election. But it would definitely be a break from the Democratic Leadership Council's recent sucesses at making the democrats into republicans. Hopefully the democrats would be forced to move to the left in policy as well as rhetoric in the more distant future. But voting for Nader, constructing a gore/bore defeat would definitely be a big step in that direction. The only way ultimately for people to pull the democrats to the left will be to abandon the party until they feel compelled to move in that direction. It brings crocodile tears to my eyes.
