Parent Article: Nader Ups the Ante

Re: Nader Ups the Ante
24 Feb 2004
I second the notion that if elected Kerry will simply serve as a scapegoat for the crises ahead. It would be poetic justice in a way, since Kerry, though not directly at fault for W's mess, has been complicit in it, most ntably by signing off on the carte blanche to wage war, for which he now cynically ducks responsibility by claiming deception by Bush, who claims deception by faulty intelligence. The popular line these days is "everyone thought Saddam had weapons." Former U.S. Marine and U.N. weapons inspector Scott Ritter didn't, but no one, including Kerry, seems to want to remember that fact. Kerry can spew finely crafted propaganda until he's blue in the face, but it won't change the fact that he will not be making any significant changes to the way the U.S. has since time eternal pursued its cynical geopolitical strategy as the pawn of global capital. The sad thing here is that Nader (or Kucinich, for that matter), has chance of winning. Whichever of Bush or Kerry is elected, the country will continue to waltz, a little to left, a little more to the right, towards a dark, vioelent future.
