Hi,RealDemocrat,I appreciate your question,and you're obvious concern for our country.First in answer to your question as to who I will vote for,I'm going to vote for Ralph Nader,like I did last time.I know the propaganda spin blamed Nader for costing Gore votes, but when you look at all that happened to the elections last time,you will see that was nothing more than smoke and mirrors.Just the usual propoganda tool utilized to distract and cover-up the now known criminal actions to circumvent the whole election process.
Let's consider just some of the known facts surrounding the 2000 elections.We know that there is a criminal rigged black-box voting machine fraud.We know brother Jeb Bush and cronies,(daddy bush's cronies) stripped who knows how many registered voters of their votes,and their choice.We know Gore won the popular vote by far.We also know that most if not all of the electoral college is indebted to daddy bush&co.So they obeyed and lied and perpetrated a crime against the voters,Al Gore,and every other candidate.For sure if the electoral college had the guts to be honest,Gore would have been the president instead of Bush.
So with just these known facts,and they're bad enough,who knows what other crimes were committed to rob us of free elections.Taking just these facts into cosideration,you must see that the whole Nader upset a Gore victory,just does'nt hold water.Seen in light of the facts,the whole debate about Nader costing Gore the election does not stand up under close scrutiny.
The reason I'm voting for Ralph Nader is unlike almost all other poloticians or prespective candidates,Nader has integrity,honesty,the skills and abilities,and experience to make a fine president.Ralph Nader is his own man,no-one wns him and he can't be bought.Most important,Nader really does have Americas best interests at heart,and has the knowledge and courage to confront and formulate real solutions in the deplorable state we are faced with now.
I would like to say why I have this opinion which I should,considering the forum.I'd have a problem if I did'nt know why I'm voting for him.
Ralph Nader opposes the illegal war in Iraq,and has made a public statement (april,13/2004) calling for congress to start impeachment proceedings against Bush and Cheney over the illegal invasion of Iraq,and lying to the nation,the congress,and the international community to justify this abominable action,and the atrocities taking place their now to our troops and the Iraqi people. You can read the press statement on his website which I'll list at the end of my reply.He even instructs congress on what basis and all the legal steps appropriate in this call to action step by step.(you never know,congress might have forgot how.)
Nader strongly condemns the"patriot-act" and is pushing to repeal this sinister userping of our civil liberties,and restoring our rights.
Nader is against corporate rule,and wants to put an end to the illegal tax-havens set-up for big corporations,and the like.He demands corporate accountibility/responsibility.
Ralph Nader also opposes free-trade agreements,and the loss of our jobs,businesses,etc.shipped out to other countries,to enrich the few.
Nader also is dedicated for a real` living/work wage single incomes can actually live on decently.
Ralph Nader is for quality safe adequate health/medical care for everyone.
Most people know Ralph Nader as a staunch longtime consumer advocate,and he still is very much dedicatedto consumer health/awareness,and recourse for consumers.But he has always been just as dedicated to the issues listed above,and for restoring our constitution.
I don't place blind trust in anyone.And I know Ralph Nader is just human being like the rest of us,and that sincere humanness is a breath of fresh air.I sincerely believe that Ralph Nader is man with integrity,ability,honesty,and the moral character and courage our nation so desperately needs now,as this is the most crucial test we as a country need to pass if America is to be saved.
For my own concious I could never vote for Kerry,Bush,or any other candidate affiliated with and actively involved in and with those enterprises who insidiouly work to continue the destruction of our precious country,and the rest of the world.
We need to stop letting the poloticians,corporate interests,and the propoganda press brainwash and indoctrinate us straight to our destruction.
We should not let those mentioned above or anyone else make us feel like traitors for saying enough of this two (really one) political parties whose loyalty lay not to their duties and oaths to our nation and our best interests,but to their corporate/bankers/global elitist masters and their hideous agendas.
It makes me sad to realize that their are fine people somewhere here with the qualities,talents,and courage who really do want to serve our country well,and we rarely hear anything about them if ever.What a shame and what a loss.For all of us.
We need to have the courage to give the powers that be,the loud message that we are fed up with not having any real say in how are country is run and by who.
And we need to let the propoganda press know we're just as sick of them and their complicity in dumbing America down and protecting the interests of their masters who they know full well are purposely destroying our country for world dominion and money.
Please just visit Ralph Naders websites,do your own research about him,Kerry,and any candidate who's running in this election and any election.and please remember any qualified candidate has the right to seek public office.And please remember we do not have to continue to be enslaved with the worthless
"two party" system that continues to destroy us decade after decade,till now we are on the abyss of destruction.We must stop letting ourselves be decieved into passively accepting our fate.
I respect everyones right to make their own informed decision to support and vote for the candidate of their choice.But I also respect the right of other qualified candidates to run for office too.
And I believe that as a public duty,all truly qualified candidates should be given equal time,forums,and exposure for free.
And full disclosure of their affiliations,track record on issues, any financial partnerships,etc. which would automatically disqualify them if found to have unsavory/traitorist obvious conflict of interests,such as any financial interest in the arms industry for instance.
I recognize the sincerety of the people who make up this forum,and I hope that even if we don't always agree with each other,we at least recognize that we all joined this forum because we do care about our country,and whats really going on in the world.
