Nurses for Ralph Nader

  1. I thought I would throw this up as we have a Nurses for Bushie thread, several times, and a Nurses for Kerry thread.
    Time to have a Nurses for Nader thread..

    Ive always liked and respected Ralph for a long time now. He has made only one mistake and that was for killing the corvair, my first car was a corvair and I loved it.
    But, Ralph has always stood for decency, and honesty, and safety. He is against wasting of human life. Lets all show support for the likes of Ralph Nader.

    Long Live Ralph Nader

    A great American

    Sorry Tom, this is one time that you & I don't agree........a vote for Nader will be--just like four years ago---a vote for Bush. There is no way the man can gather enough support to be anything but an obstacle in the path of taking our country back from the right-wing nutcases........and I for one am not willing to risk handing Bush another hollow victory.

    not once did I say I was voting for him

    I just put this thread up as a balance for the all the bushie threads and the kerry thread

    However, I do fully feel that when they have their debates, that Ralph Nader should be allowed to participate in those debates.

    I agree Tom, Nader should be allowed to participate in the debates. Nader is the "true" anti-war candidate. I'm not aware of how Nader plans to help Nurses but I do know that Nader could sway many of the anti-war voters his way. Not good for Kerry.

    I too am a nurse for Nader, although I'm not voting for him this year. Did that in 2000, in Florida no less. I'm sorry. It's too important to waste a vote on Ralph this year. I agree with his stance on corporate malfeasance, pollution laws and most other issues.

    I also think he should be allowed into the presidential debates to keep the other two honest. That won't happen, just like in 2000, because this country is a duopoly, run by parties that are opposite sides of the same coin. Unfortunately, the head on the Republican side of that coin is seriously flawed this year, and should be re-cast.

    I'm not worried about Nader taking votes away from John Kerry. Nobody I know who voted for Nader last time is going to do that in 2004. The idea of another four years of Bush is so scary that they'll vote for the person most likely to defeat him. The Republicans are the ones who should worry. I believe a lot of principled conservatives will not be able to stomach pulling a lever for this radical now in the White House. This summer will see more revelations and actions that will disgust the McCain-type Republicans. They won't vote for Kerry, but the WILL vote for Ralph. My prediction is Kerry 57%, Bush 40%, Nader 3%, with 2% of that being registered Republicans and 1% being people who reject the two-party system.

    I voted for Ralph in 2000 also, but not this time. I like Nader, but like you said, another 4 years of Bush is too scary. I knew Gore wouldn't win Texas anyway in 2000, but there are a lot of republicans that are really turned off by Bush. There are even groups like "Republicans against Bush" and "Conservatives against Bush". How great would it be if Kerry won Texas this year!

    I used to like Nadar, but now I absolutely hate him ...

    What an egomaniac. Thanks to him, Bush is in office.

    And he'll probably do the same thing this time.

    Yeah, that's a hellava accomplishment.

    He isnt an egomaniac in anyway

    there are concerns he wants to address with the American Republic

    He uses this as a medium to do so
