Ralph Nader, the Republican's Best Friend. **UPDATE
As I'm sure you've heard by now, Ralph Nader is running for president. I wish I could say I was surprised, by as you can see, I'm not.
It looks like the bickering and backstabbing among the progressives has finally paid off for McCain.
Will his impact be less than in 2000, or even 2004? Of course. Will it still be enough to make a difference? Probably.
Florida, Ohio are toss ups even without him in the race.
Other than those two states, name me one State the Democrats can possibly pick up from last time, that the margin of a few thousand votes won't make a difference. This chart shows vote totals from 2000, show me a state we have a chance of picking up that his votes wouldn't make a difference.
Add to that, the vote stealing and voter purging that we know will take place, and it sure looks like we're getting a McCain administration for Christmas.
This sicken me, it truly fucking sickens me.
Welcome to permanent tax cuts for the rich. Welcome to war in Iran. Welcome to a Supreme Court that will turn back every protection the poor and the working class have. Welcome to back room abortions.
Fuck Nader and fuck ANYONE who doesn't vote a straight Democratic ticket. Fuck your so-called principles. Your principles won't get science back into your children's classrooms, your principles won't provide health care for your family when your employer decides it's too expensive, your principles won't put $5.00 a gallon gas in your car, your principles won't keep the Government out of your email, telephones or bedroom.
Fuck this shit.
You know I don't believe in hell, but that's where Ralph Nader belongs.
Go away Ralph Nader, you have destroyed any legacy of good you may have ever had.
***Updated!!! Anne, has this video posted, which sums it up quite nicely,(without all the cussing and stuff.)
