Another four years of the Bush regime? Not on your life. If we have to take Ralph down in the effort to save this land from the neo-con fundamentalists, so be it.

We are not living in normal times in LA or anywhere. Even many mainstream political observers are finally waking up to just how VERY dangerous the fundamentalist neo-con onslaught really is in Washington (see Republican Kevin Phillips' "American Dynasty", as one example). Unless you want to court the very real possibility that you (and perhaps your children) may spend your remaining years under marshall law or in some dingy internment camp, you'd be a fool to have anything to do with Ralph Nader at this point in time.
This is no exaggeration or the ravings of some paranoid conspiracy theorist. I too, campaigned and voted for Nader in 2000, partly in the hope that if Bush did win (which he didn't), the neo-cons would galvanize the left. That actually happened (witness millions in the streets last year), but I vastly under-estimated how really dangerous the Bush regime could be. Now we all see and if you don't feel the chill you're not paying attention. I'm looking 60 in the face and i've NEVER seen anything in this nation that looks remotely as threatening to freedom, democracy, the U.S. Constitution and the well-being of the biosphere as the regime that is now occupying Washington. Simply said: there's zero room for Nader on the precipice of the new fascism that now threatens to engulf any freedoms we have remaining.
Another four years of the Bush regime? Not on your life. If we have to take Ralph down in the effort to save this land from the neo-con fundamentalists, so be it. The lives of my children and my grandchildren are far more important.; your lives and those of your loved ones are far more important . We can deal with the duopoly and the corporados under Kerry or whomever, but under an entrenched Bush regime we won't even have the space. Join the resistance to Bush and Nader. It's truly a matter of life and death.
