I have a SERIOUS problem with this
Ralph Nader has announced that he will be the Green Party's candidate for president this year. This makes me VERY upset. This year's election is SO vital to the future of our country! If his presence in the election causes McCain to win (like many people claim his presence in the 2000 election sealed Bush's victory) I will either have to explode or move.
Doesn't he understand how important this is? He claims that "if Democrats can't landslide the Republicans this year, they ought to just wrap up, close down, emerge in a different form."
Then get out of the way!
I realize that he has many issues he wants to bring to the debate, but he KNOWS he's not going to win the election! Fine, announce your candidacy, bring up your issues in the debates, but then drop out before the actual election! If we want ANY kind of change in this country, we cannot afford to lose a single vote to Nader! McCain supports Bush and aligns himself with his ideals! He wants us in Iraq for another 100 years! This country CANNOT have him as our next president!
What is the purpose, really, for Nader to run in this race? Does he just need to make himself feel better by having a few people vote for him? Does he want to be on TV some more?
Ugh, I'm so frustrated!!!!
Please, whatever you do, don't vote for him!
