When I heard this morning that Ralph Nader is running for president again, I was livid. Absolutely fucking livid! He is going to screw up another election. He most certainly isn't going to siphon votes off of the Republicans, just the Democrats. He has no chance whatsoever of winning, so what on earth is his motivation? Delivering us 4 more years of Bush/Cheney type of policy? He IS NOT going to be President no matter how hard he campaigns, no matter how much money he raises. He has no hope. The only thing his campaign can possibly do is ruin another election. I'm sure the Republicans are positively giddy at the prospect of this idiot running again.

This is not very eloquent, but frankly I'm too irritated to put my words down with any intelligence. I really had such high hopes for this election. I want so badly for a Democrat to win. We NEED a Democrat to win. This morning, when I heard about Nader's campaign, I just got a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach. Haven't we already been down this road twice before? This country has barely survived the past 8 years, and we won't survive another 4. We need a Democratic President. I'm afraid for the country. I really, honestly am.

I don't get it. part of me thinks that maybe he was paid to throw a wrench into everything by the republicans. HMPH I say!

You know I agree with you, except for one thing: The country may have survived the Bush/Cheney years, but our democracy has not. We need change to restore constitutional democracy, and that means electing a Democrat, like you said. Sign me up!

If you want to know more about the motivations of Ralph Nader, I strongly suggest watching An Unreasonable Man. It is really good.
