Once upon a time...

A relative of mine that lived in texas told me in 2000 that she would not vote for bush because he ran texas into the ground and he would do the same to the country. As much as i hate to say it at that time i supported bush over gore, i realize that i was wrong.

So what do you think is the ****ty situation of this country the result of bush or the consequences he was rendered?

RE: Once upon a time...

so instead of making a choice between your only two options (let's face it, is ralph really gonna make it?), you're helping to allow the idiot run the country for another 4 yrs?

It's kind of like those hot topic kids who pretend to be poor and buy $150 ripped jeans so they can be "different." It's that same syndrome just on a different end of the "Social Darwinism" spectrum.

3rd party candidates

Actually, Ralph Nader's goal is not to get elected, it's merely to get 5% of the vote.

The Republicans and the Democrats have given themselves a sort of monopoly on politics. When you pay taxes, there is a little box that asks if you want to give $3 of your taxes to give equal contributions to political parties. If Nader gets 5% of the vote, during the next presidential election, his party gets part of that money, which would be way more then he could ever hope to raise on his own.

Ross Perot did it in 1992. That's when the Reform Party was started, and that's why you saw him in the debates in 1996.

So, voting for Nader is not a waste of time. Actually, a 3rd party candidate getting 5% of the vote would be the first step in drastically changing politics in this country.

I'm still voting for Bush.

RE: Once upon a time...

Perot did not start the reform party. It was first formulated in the mid 1800's along with the Populist party. Same concept though, and everything else you said is correct...and remarkably similar to what i said in the "nader sucks' thread.

My vote is for kerry.
