Yet again, Ralph Nader has thrown his loserish, if not idealistic hat into the proverbial presidential ring. How many forays into the race does this make? I'm pretty sure he's been running for the oval office since the Civil War, but who's counting?
This begs my question...nay conspiracy theory. Is Ralph Nader really trying to win the race? My theory is that he is nothing more than a pawn of the "Grand Ol' Party" to further boost their chances of controlling the White House. There's no sane way that he can be so dilluted as to think he has an ice cube's chance in hell of winning. So he's either hopelessly optimistic and therefore unrealistic or diabolical, neither of which I want in charge of appointing administrative posts! I find it odd that as progressive as Nader claims to be, he still feels it is a good idea to risk another Republican administration with a new version of war monger at the helm.
Flashback to the 2000 election...George W. Bush celebrating a victory over Al Gore with only a few HUNDRED votes seperating the two candidates in Florida. Interestingly enough a few hundred THOUSAND people voted for Nader; people whom, it is logical to assume, would have voted for Gore otherwise and thereby preventing the swearing in of the nincompoop who has been plaguing our country for the last 8 years. If Nader succeeds in what I truly believe is the GOP agenda, and we have to deal with 4 more years of atrocious decision making that further grinds our once great nation into dust, I'm off like a prom dress and moving to Canada.
