Ralph Nader the Hater Enters the Race!

Oh Ralph Nader, you’re so silly.  I don’t get why this guy feels the need to jump into a race.  I mean, we can all see through his “righteousness” reasons.  Frankly, I think he just wants his 15min of fame in these historical times.  I caught him on Tucker (on MSNBC) yesterday, and it was just funny.

Tucker drilled Nader on his show, citing one of the priorities on Nader’s agenda:

Impeach Bush and Cheney

Are you serious Nader – the mere fact that he has this as his priority for the moment is quite pathetic.  Sure, there are plenty of people who would love to see that, but what a waste of time.  I think I became politically dumber by listening to that!

Anyway, I don’t think he’ll “steal” votes away from anyone.  He may get some Nader-ites to join his cause, but it won’t affect the outcome in the least and he’ll be a distant memory once again…

until the next election that is.

  1. The rightwing propaganda machines know how to appeal to people such as yourself.

    You like to feel macho and cool and better than other people. If Tucker ridicules Nader and makes it look like he is a fool than you get to feel superior.

    The reality is that if you were in any way superior you wouldn’t fall for these sort of crappy cheap tactics in the first place.

    Not only does Ralph Nader have a right to dignity and to have his ideas seriously debated, the American people have a right to hear him and to debate what Nader will do as opposed to the other candidates.

    Tucker has his lets make fun of this guy routine fine tuned down to an art.

    The rest of us wonder why he’s afraid of actually debating the issues Nader raises. Why does he have to resort to personally attacking anyone who is not a rightwing radical.

    The American system is all about debate. The news programs are supposed to give us the facts not political spin.

    If you can debate the things that Nader stands for then I can respect you but if you can only make fun of him then that doesn’t impress anyone.

  2. Well, i certainly don’t feel “mightier” after making fun of Ralph. I hopped over to his website to look into his policies(?)

    here’s one: No to nuclear power, solar energy first

    This is a waste of time. The U.S. has already made initiatives with this, evidence given by ZERO new nuclear power plants made since the 1980s.

    here’s another: Impeach Bush/Cheney

    I already addressed this.

    and: work to end corporate personhood

    no explanation for any of these by the way.

    Nader’s a funny guy, but you know what he did do for the country? He’s the reason why car windows go up so slow! (it’s true, look it up)
    :)

  3. [...] From a “Politics and Religion” post titled “Ralph Nader the Hater Enters the Race“: [...]

  4. Corporate personhood. Our forefathers were against corporations. Google Jefferson and his comments regarding them. Corporations are doing precisely what Jefferson said they would.

    Corporate personhood means that corporations have the same rights as citizens. You should read this article for a better understanding of what we are up against and why corporate personhood is not right.

    Also Nader is the only candidate who would fight against the usury committed by bankcard companies. that is no small thing.

    Nader would “Promote the general welfare” which is vital. He would defend and uphold the Constitution and rule of law and American traditions. Something that NONE OF THE OTHER CANDIDATES HAVE BEEN DOING.

    Over the past 8 years we have seen what happens when a self interested minority takes control of the government. The neocons are for the most part Jewish Zionists. I’m not being anti-semitic I am just speaking a fact.

    The entire definition of the United States can be changed based upon whether or not a self interested minority takes control of the government and doesn’t represent the general welfare and American traditions and interests.

    We shouldn’t be ruled by corporate interests, Jewish interests, black interests, white interests, Christian intererests, gay interests, etc etc etc. We should be one nation where all of us have the same interests and are equal under the law. This system works to guarantee everyone’s rights and interests. We should not allow minorities to divide us up into hispanics, blacks, gays, Jews, Christians etc.

    Over the past 8 years under the neocons we have become a country that is universally hated. We are a rouge superpower run amuck and we are feared by every other country and they don’t know who we are going to attack next. America no longer represents what we have stood for through our history.

    We have rounded up Isarel’s enemies and locked them away at Gitmo without due process and tortured them.

    We are committing a holocaust against the people of the middle east.

    Americans are losing our rights and the Consitution is being disregarded and trashed.

    We are international war criminals.

    We have stolen the Iraqi people’s natural resources and TURNED THEM OVER TO CORPORATIONS.

    Ralph Nader is Lebanese. He is not white. He is not Christian. Yet he does not represent a minority who will champion Lebanese rights and be devisive and go against American interests. He is an American who will defend America and the interests of all Americans.

    Does our God or our Consitution suspend the rules of right and wrong depending upon who is doing the deed?

    Not only should Bush/Cheney be impeached but they and the Jewish neocons should be tried for war crimes and the crimes they have committed against us and our Constitution.

    They have broken laws whose precendents were set at Nuremberg.

    Were the Nuremberg trials a joke? Were they merely a tool of the Jews to enable them to be able to gain special treatment from the governments of the world and from the people.

    What is the difference between a Jewish state and an Aryan Nation. Why is one considered evil but the other ok?

    If Hitler’s crime was to invade other nations that had nothing to Germany than why are Bush/Cheney and the neocons not evil for what they have done to the Iraqis?

    After Nuremberg the reporters in Germany were put on trial. None of them were in Hitlers inner circle but they had helped him sell his agenda. They were found guilty and executed.

    Ralph Nader is the only candidate who would stand up to the corporate media in America. Can you put a price on what that would mean to the American people and to our way of life?

    Tucker Carlson is not your friend. He is not someone you should listen to or respect. He is your enemy.

    Ask yourself why Tucker Carlson has never informed you or the rest of us about corporate personhood. Ask him why he never reports about bankcard companies and their crimes against citizens.

    Ralph Nader is a true American. Ralph Nader is a MAN. That is more than I can say about Carlson and all the others of his ilk.

    We need Ralph Nader because he is an American who will hold us together as a nation and represent ALL OF US and not some minority or corporate interests. He is our last faint hope.

    If the others get into the White House they will destroy us with globalization and the new world order. Check out my last post at southernvoice. Inform yourself. That way you can take on the Tucker Carlsons and know them for what they are. Enemies of America.

    By 2050 the UN perdicts that America will be overrun. Not with just illegal Mexicans and South Americans but with immigrants from Africa, Asia and the Middle East. Muslims are already driving Brits to leave Great Britian and Africans are tearing France apart with riots and even Finland has had Muslim rioting. They say it is not a matter of if but a matter of when they can change the governments to Islamic ones.

    What is happening in Europe is what we can look forward to. Is that the country and future you want to leave for your children?

    Inform yourself. Vote Nader.

    this is eerily similar to the scare tactics used by the administration for the past 8 years. Quite a slippery slope argument and irrelevant.

    Let’s put it this way, if Nader is the saving grace of this country, then we’ll see him in office (and we both know he won’t be in there). I question why he took so long to enter the race… he’s attempting the ultimate Rudy G. strategy except with no real major contests left.

    Nonetheless, let’s enjoy him why we can.

    Out of curiosity, why doesn’t he post his policies on his website? Maybe I’m missing them somewhere, but that would seem like a logical place to put them.

  6. Ralph Nader is a valid living American hero, and he is exercising a fundamental principle set upon our nation’s foundation – presidential elections should be about the candidate who will best represent the three branches of government, not political solidarity.

    For many decades these parties, a tragic mistake in the opinion of Washington, eventually lost support and faded into history, and new ones emerged to champion new rights such as the Republican party, which became established in order to end slavery and promote civil equalities (ironic, given the current media portrayal). The last legitimate attempt at this sort of expedience was the Progressive Party of Theodore Roosevelt, the last major party to recieve more votes than one of the establishment parties – and led directly to Wilson’s disastrously debilitation of Constitutional principles in 1912. From that point on, the US has creeped towards larger government, oversight of internationalism directing our nation’s policies, and constant global conflicts to bloat bankers and corporate interests ahead of the citizens.

    Therefore it is understandable to react to any threatening presence that resolutes a purist message in comparison to the two party system which merely alludes to members of a certain ilk. On the other hand, it shold not become a matter of “victory at any cost” either to discredit a valid patriot for recieving a mere 2.5% in the 2000 election and overlook the numerous cronyist corruptions that led to George Bush’s stacked election results. It should have been an indication of how he would govern, but many Democrats have turned to assaulting the rights of Nader rather than evaluate the ills of election fraud, just look at the current problems concerning superdelegates and DNC rules banning MI/FL primary votes. The Democrats have learned nothing, in fact they have resorted to the sort of chicanery the GOP abused to dominate Washington for 6 years, and those of us who love our nation and want a clear conscience in the voting ballot welcome Nader’s announcement.

    If it bothers you, then vote for the candidate you think has a better chance of winning just to stick it to the other side. Those of us who are true believers are so disgusted either way we would not have voted in this election, concerning the awful options, in the present circumstances anyway.

    Change is more than just a slogan, it is a lifetime of commitments and accomplishments. And contrary to Clinton’s shrill whining, no one embodies that sort of authentic achievement more than Ralph Nader.

  7. Just as in 2000… and we saw who we got then!!!

    A vote for Nader was a vote for Bush.

    And now:
    A vote for Nader is a vote for McCain!

    DON’T VOTE NADER!!!

    If ya’ like going to war in the wrong country for no apparent reason vote McCain.

    Uhhh…lemme see… terrorists from Saudi Arabia flew planes into buildings on the direction of another Saudi in Afghanistan…. soooo….OBVIOUSLY… we should invade Iraq.

    Yep! Lemme have some more of that logic…. Maybe Bush can run as Vice-President…. Is that allowed? Because he and his staff are real geniuses.

    Remember folks, the ONLY reason Bush got the White House was because of Nader. Thus Nader can be blamed for: The Iraq War, The economy, The price of oil, and possibly even 9-11.(one can only guess on that last one) McCain is just as nutty as Bush but smarter which makes him more dangerous.

  8. Hi All,
    just wanted to let you know my account has been “suspended” here at Politics and Religion…

    I hope that it is activated again at some point :( I’d hate to leave this blog.

    Justin

  9. I’m sorry to hear that.

    I wish Nader would step aside and allow someone else to take the third party spot.

    Also wondered if you had any comments on the recently deceased William F. Buckley.
