Having volunteered with Nader for 3 campaigns

I bet I would enjoy reading that book, but I also think it would bother me to "re-live" the hell we went through... Ron Paul is aware, as you saw in the beginning of the vod.. he knows.. he knows what happened in the GOP at the RNC.. we were all there, even if only virtually.. still.. I think Ron Paul has a better plan than Nader-Amato.. The solution is taking the GOP.

=( no audible version

Dang, i wish there was an audio version. I don't have time to read that much anymore so listening to books on my commute to work is how a get caught up on books.....

Does anyone know if RP and GJ get the same love

we give Nader and Stein on Green party forums and sites?

My guess is probably not. But I am ok with that. Evolution is away from statism, so I believe we will win over our Green brothers and sisters in due time.

Grand Illusion

I love the name. Has anyone here read it?

You think that in the USA two

You think that in the USA two parties republican and democratic, actually in the USA one party demorepublican.

Ralph Nader looks pissed!

And we are all, too. More and more people are talking about the "one-party system" and this conversation is not going away.

With liberty and justice for all...who can afford it.

Things can change starting on Nov. 6th

Judge Jim Gray:
“If we just get 5%... it will be the beginning of the end of the two party system.”

If the Libertarians can get over five percent of the popular vote, they will be entitled to matching federal funds (about $90 million) from the Federal Government, passing the threshold under the Federal Election Campaign Act.

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

Only until

both parties decide to change the rules. Sorry, just being apathetic.

I am warming up to voting for any leading 3rd party candidate (mostly Johnson), especially after watching the free and equal debate. Just for the sake of the possibility of getting over that 5% hump for more funding. Of course until they Oligarchs find a way to alter that rule.

So, what do we do about the Presidential vote tallying machine??

...located in Spain and controlled by Balderton Capital out of London, controlled by TWO GOLDMAN SACHS former V.P.'s???

It won't matter if we have the vote.

Thank you Christina Tobin!!!

Fixing the current voting system, is one of the most important things that we can do. :)
