Thread Name: BS: Election of the US President
Subject: RE: BS: Election of the US President
I must confess that I am partly responsible for Bush becoming president but, looking back, probably would have done it again... Yes, I was not only a Nader-ite in 2000 but I also was part of the campaign as a precinct caption...
Our goal back then was to capture enough votes nationally to get the Green Party into the debates in the '04 election... We fell short of that goal and in or failings opening the pathway for Bush, his lawyers and his daddy's Supreme Court to steal the 2000 election...
This election, however, was much different... The Green Party, or what is left of it, had no overall goals... Sciencegeek is correct... Voting Green was a wasted vote and wasted energy to get there...
