signs, beating drums,
and playing music,
dozens of Ralph Nader supporters
converged on Pioneer Square in Seattle to protest Nader's exclusion from
the first presidential debate being held 3,000 miles away in Boston. The
nightly news spent more time discussing Gush and Bore's wardrobes than they
did reporting on
thousands who marched in Boston to protest the blatantly anti-democratic
exclusion of third party candidates from the debate. Why are they so afraid
that they wouldn't let Nader into the audience even though he had a ticket?
Maybe they remember how underdog
Ventura went on to become governor of Minnesota on the strength of his
performance in televised debates. I don't want this website to become too
political, but if you look at the issues (issues other than what the candidates
wore), you can't help but feel that voting for Nader is the only ethical
and responsible thing to do. In 1996, 51% of eligible voters did not vote.
If half of those people turned out this year and voted for Ralph, he'd WIN.
Vote your conscience, not your fear. Spread the word, protest, and
Let Ralph Debate!
