Well, I know that having an online political discussion can breed danger, but I figured....what the hay. I can always shut it down if any Republicans post gibberish. HA! I keed the Republicans!! Which I have license to do since I voted a straight GOP ticket from 1990 to 2002. Ha! That's a good one! Not that I don't respect Nader for his 2000 run, but both parties in turn learned their lessons about the repercussions of letting anyone know that Independents even exist (ie. Perot costing Bush Sr. '92 and Nader costing Gore '00). Though a 2008 Nader campaign is completely impotent and practically a joke...anyone who doesn't know what Nader was about 8 years ago should read his [link=http://www.rxshuster.org/ralph_nader.htm]2000 Declaration Speech[/link]. Though it's full of detail it's a brilliant regarding closing the "democracy gap" between control that the corporate government exercises over our political government. If your attention span is too short to read a speech, then these videos'll pretty much sum up why the Nader's, Kucinich's, Gravel's & Paul's don't stand a chance.....
