Idiocy=Nader

Webster defines Idiocy as:

1. utterly senseless or foolish behavior; a stupid or foolish act, statement, etc.
2. Psychology. the state of being an idiot.


All terms for which I would describe Ralph Nadar on this day.

If you haven't heard, Ralph Nadar has decided today (not months or weeks ago) to run for President. I would like to remind everyone who was a legal voter in the 2000 election just what happened when Nadar through his hat into the ring. Dubya beat Gore by a handful of votes. It wasn't all Florida's fault! Thousands of votes were wasted on Nadar's empty campaign that was bound for nowhere. These were votes that were Gore's....plain and simple.

This is a low-down, rotten political move. I have to wonder if Ralph Nadar is simply just in the pocket of the Republican Party......a wolf in sheep's clothing so to speak. I can't honestly believe that it could be anything else! The man has no chance in winning and we know that the votes spent on him could be going to a viable candidate. I really don't care if those votes would go to a Republican instead of a Democrat. As long as they are not wasted on him and his useless cause!

Now....I fully understand that this is the society in which we live that allows this to happen. God Bless America. Our justice system is also supposed to be fair and we have seen from time to time that its well-intentioned system can backfire on us as well. So I really am avoiding the whole "Free democratic society" discussions here.

So to those who choose to support him, it is a free country. But remember, you will be wasting your vote on an individual who stands no chance in reaching the White House. Your vote for Nadar throws votes to a Republican candidate who will continue to reinforce the current value system that already resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Hi Rita - I totally agree. Why waste a vote on someone who has no shot. Might as well just write in Bugs Bunny. I'm still upset about Nadar running in 2000.

I know....it just makes me crazy. I can't stand the thought of McCain and his over-cosmeticated wife being in the White House as a result of this loon running for office.

I really enjoy reading your blog, it always has great insight. But I am very frustrated with the media’s lack of questions to the presidential candidates about global warming. Now that it is down to just a few candidates I would think that this would be a bigger issue.

Live Earth just picked up this topic and put out an article ( http://www.liveearth.org/news.php ) asking why the presidential candidates are not being solicited for their stance on the issue of the climate change. I just saw an article describing each candidate’s stance on global warming and climate change on earthlab.com

http://www.earthlab.com/articles/PresidentialCandidates.aspx . So obviously they care about it. Is it the Medias fault for not asking the right questions or is it the candidates’ fault for not highlighting the right platforms? Does anyone know of other websites or articles that touch on this subject and candidates’ views? This is the biggest problem of the century and for generations to come…you would think the next president of the United States would be more vocal about it.

He's a doddering old egomaniac. No one will take him seriously save a few misguided souls this time.
