CAREFUL WHAT YOU WRITE ON THIS THREAD! Intelligent critique is ok but no Bashing.
That's probably why there are votes, but no commentary
I voted for Nader in 2000, but not this time around.
A vote for Nader is just another vote for Shrub.
I'd like to know more about american politics. Can someone explain me who Nader is?
Ralph Nader was a consumer advocate/activist. He helped prompt one of the earliest mass consumer recalls due to a prioduct defect in a car. He ran for Persident in 2000 on the Green Party line, and many Democrats feel he cost Gore the election by taking votes in tight races in some states. You see, in the US, there is not a direct election of the President. There is the elctoral college. When I vote, I'm actually voting for the electors pledged for a candidate in my state. Gore won the popular vote, but lost the electoral college majority, and this is why Naqder is so controversial again, because of the fear that this may happen again.
Hope this helps and wasn't too partisan
Two years ago it would have been Bush most likely, but now I feel much differently. I am starting to disagree with more and more of his policies and issue stances. But, then again, I feel that I know next-to-nothing about Kerry. This seems like such a bleak race! I'm thoroughly confused and have no idea who I am voting for....but hopefully by November I'll make up my mind!
