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.
