Ralph Don't Run

As you know, I'm not one for politics.  But this morning my inbox contained the following link and powerful message.  It's important to me because I didn't have information like this in 2000.  I was one of the few who tipped the election in Bush's favor by voting for Nader.

Please don't throw stones!  I've learned my lesson - the hardest way possible!  Now I owe it to my community [and myself] to speak out.  I'm not willing to sit back and let history repeat itself.  Are you?

VISIT RALPHDONTRUN.NET and get the facts.

What a great website and information I certainly didn't know!! To be honest, like you, I don't know too much about politics. I go on the issues that are most important to me - female issues, family, healthcare, environment. But I'm getting older now and a little wiser to how important this stuff is. Thanks for opening my eyes on one issue I might have otherwise overlooked. :)

Freee we all make mistakes, but you've not only learned from them but are sharing what you've learned as well. And at least you VOTED! Good for you! Pat yourself on the back for that. :-) I'm not a political person either, but it's high time more people got this involved with the affairs (not meant literally lol) of those running for office.

Good for you! I couldn't agree with you more on this one. Thanks for sharing the website.

I understand anyone voting for Nader, certainly I can line up with him on a number of issues. But a vote for Nader is a vote for Bush. Simple as that. The irony is devastating, since Nader supporters have even more to lose by splitting the leftist vote and letting this administration run the country further into the ground. Good for you Trish! We can't allow this to happen again.

Unfortunately, a third party does not have the strength to win the White House, at this point in time. Often times, it feels like you are voting for the lesser of two evils and you can't vote your conscience. I guess that's why I was hoping Dean would be the Democratic nominee. I thought he was a breath of fresh air. Great decision Freee!!! :-) ---Robbie

I had a very sickening feeling when I saw this on the news this morning. I really thought Kerry had a chance, but now it looks rough. I can not stand George Bush. I have such ill feelings towards that man and look down on those who support him. He is not a good man. Not a good man at all.

Yikes Freee....I love to comment in your journal. But politics? lol, couldn't you have talked about religion instead? :::smile::: I totally agree that anyone who votes for Nader will only lessen the chance that Bush can be defeated. A vote for Nader IS a vote for Bush. Definitely weakens the Democratic party's choice.

Oh yeah, guess I should add I'm a Republican....

I also voted for Nader in 2000 -- a protest vote against the two evils that I didn't want to choose the lesser of.
Not this time! I'm a member of the ABBA party -- Anybody But Bush Again! That means voting for the Democratic nominee, the only person with a realistic chance of winning.

No Freee--this scares me too! I don't know if this country would be fit to live in after four more years of Dubya! Thanks for speaking up!

Yep...exactly what my parents have been saying about Nader. "Don't Run!" When I think of the possibility of Bush getting reelected, I get chills and a feeling of nausea rushes through me. Thanks for posting this!

thank you for this info and i hope everyone will realize this time around that voting for nader or him even running will only help bush. i'm not sure about politics but i do know that i can't stomach another 4 years of bush.

Sorry, Trish, my computer took so long to load that I gave up on viewing it. :-/ However, I gather it's saying that a vote for a third party candidate generally splits up the democratic vote, which I knew. I honestly don't see what they hope to achieve. This country isn't going to elect a 3rd party candidate right now. He'd be better served by joining the Democratic party, since his beliefs are closer to that anyway.

Yeah! freee! don't sit back, speak out!
because, well...I wont. and so you will have to for those of us who can't wont.
isn't it a pain?
It's not that I am not lazy...I just dont' understand politics...nor can I remember the horrible things they do. I guess I am too forgiving....
isn't it a pain??

XO, Isabel

Silly Ralph Nader. I can't believe he's doing it this time. I know he's doing this to get publicity and monetary support for this organization, but this election is crucial. This is NOT the time to put self-interest first before the nation. He should step aside, shame on him!

Hmm! interesting.....I hear ya! and also I'm with you 100% .

Nader did not cost Gore the election. This myth has to die. The majority of people who voted for Nader would not have voted had he not ran. Nader addresses issues that democrats are too timid to address. It was Nader, not the dems or repubs, who went after corporate criminals, like Eron.If more Americans would vote for the best candidate rather than who they thought might win, Nader would be in office right now fixing this country.
