Dan Keding BS: Nader is coming on Meet the Press now (113* d) RE: BS: Nader is coming on Meet the Press now 24 Feb 08


GG - if you could calm down a bit and stop stating everything in absolutes life would be easier for you and for everyone else reading your posts.

You obviously didn't read mine or if you did you only remembered what you wanted to remember. I stated very firmly that I believed we needed more than two parties in this country and yet you accused me of otherwise. How do you know who I have supported in the past or who I have voted for in the past? Do you know for sure that I have never voted for a Green Party or other third party candidate in any election? If you think so then you are wrong. Do you think I vote lockstep with the Democrats on every election and on every issue? You're wrong.

I do think that if we are to have viable national third party candidates then it must come from the people not from the media. It should come from a grass roots movement that delivers power back to the people through local and state elections. Even the Green Party and the Libertarians have been unsuccessful locally in most states.

Maybe we are all wrong. Maybe nothing will ever change. But if people still continue to have enough faith to VOTE then we should not diminish that faith. If you want to work for Nader because he will bring change then I think you should do just that and for you that is right and I applaud your decision. But if I choose to vote for someone else who I think can bring about change then who are you to attack me or anyone else on this forum just because we don't agree with you.

There are a lot of good people who will be voting for Obama or Clinton who marched and worked to get the vote for African Americans and try to put an end to discrimination and who marched and worked to end the Viet Nam war. There are people who you are insulting who have been in the trenches and are proud of what they've done and don't need to be preached at for their political views.

Enough said.

Dan
