TODAY: Mass Demonstration Planned On Wall Street ***

!! D I G G I T !!
http://www.votenader.org/events/nyc/

Ralph Nader and Matt Gonzalez are bringing their Independent Presidential campaign to New York City October 15th & 16th! The Nader/Gonzalez campaign stands with people of all political stripes — Greens, Libertarians, Republicans, Democrats, independents, and Constitution party members — disillusioned with the two political parties that were behind the bailout of Wall Street crooks.

Protest the Bailout on Wall Street
Thursday, October 16th, 12 Noon
Federal Hall, next to the NYSE
26 Wall Street, New York City
Contact: (804) 852-6116 or josh@votenader.org

Join us in New York City next to the New York Stock Exchange to let the crooks on Wall Street and their politician lackeys know that the American people are not happy with their crooked deals.

"Inflatable icons of greed at the stock exchange"
Ralph and other important figures will be speaking before a diverse crowd objecting to the bailout. This is going to be an afternoon to remember!

Wall Street protests have become a Ralph Nader specialty. The picture at the right shows an October 2002 rally at which Ralph warned that the Stock Exchange had been turned into "a speculative casino ridden by corruption, deception and crime," words being shouted from today’s headlines.

If you cannot make it to the protest or rally —
or even if you can — please help us spread
the word by forwarding the information to anyone you know who might join us!

To volunteer to help at these events, contact Austin at 804-852-6116 or e-mail Josh at josh@votenader.org.Spread the Word!

hey guys...

I just had a thought. Please dont tear me up too bad on this. But his is my question/idea:

It is 'illegal' to protest and cause disturbances and get in the way of people who don't want you in their way. That is sad, but is true. You end up on a list with 'evil' people.

Now I ask: Who needs you now more than anyone? The Representative that stood up for what was right.. twice. and maybe even some other time (if you are so fortunate). I was thinking that these people might be undergoing a little pressure and stress from TPTB right about now.

So here is my thought: Is the thought of holding a public "Thank You" gathering in front of your Representatives office an idea worth kicking around? You would not be doing anything 'evil'. You would be showing support for an elected politician. Kind and courteous! He/She may even come out to talk and have a nice meet & greet! Great way to network and let them know that they will have help when needed. It might even turn out to be a good PR/Media exposure chance.

Not a troll- just kickin around an idea that may encourage the ones that felt good about doing their duty when they were supposed to. It might help in the future. Plus it is a new twist to this civil disobediance. I don't know if anyone(including Dp'ers) are ready for something like this.

Everyone knows that members of the House admire RP, his integrity, and bravery. Everyone knows that they also ENVY his ability to collect followers. Give them a couple hours of gratitude and they might just pick up that constitution and look into it again.

Just a thought. Any feedback?

Good creative thinking.

This might be a model for many demonstrations, bringing publicity to those few who are truly for the people. My reps voted the wrong way, but if you are lucky to have one to thank, this would be a great move.

sheer beauty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and some still say that love has no chance.

Great Idea!

!

Good Enough for its own thread?

Good Enough for its own thread?

This is such a great idea!

I love it. I wish my rep would have voted against it. The Thank You gathering would be a good kick off for their local campaigns too, or at least they could get a press release out of it for sure.

LivingTheDream

Thank you.

I was looking for something positive as opposed to tear gas and the likes. The soldiers/police would have a hard time doing anything illegal.

It would also boost moral of any troop coming back from oversees. Instead of us collecting weapons and figuring out how to beat them in our old cammy's, why not let the troops join us? Viva La Constitužion!

I second this! I'm proud

I second this! I'm proud that my Representative, Rep. Castor (Florida), voted against the bailout bill. Therefore, I gave her my vote for re-election. She may not be with us completely on economics, but she knew what was wrong. I'm also proud to say that Senator Bill Nelson also voted against it, twice as well. This is such a good idea, to defend those that stood up for us. This woulñd help us put our energy to good use and we don't need to be on the down slope all day. Ahh!! This feels so good to vent out and focus on the good things in life (but be a realist when you see something bad in life that's bugging the hell out of you). The idea cheered me up again! ;)

this

is absolutely necessary. Otherwise, even Castor wont be there next time... Even if you are standing out there by yourself. Do it one day for a couple of hours and see what happens!

Who cares. Nader got Ron's

Who cares. Nader got Ron's endorsement, but Ron has been handing out endorsements like they're going out of style.

Wrong

and some people call anything an endorsement-"he smiled at the guy standing next to me," he endorsed me.

What are you talking about?

Ron never endorsed anyone except Chuck Baldwin. Didn't you watch his press conference at the National Press Club?

Ron Paul is my President

Lol, Maybe He Has Him Confused With Ru Paul

wait a second here

Ron said at the 3rd minute of the CNN Wolf Blitzer interview together with Nader(not Baldwin)that he wants as many people to vote for Nader as possible.

No, That's Misleading

What he said was that he wanted Nader to get votes because he would expect that would take away votes from Obama, his natural rival. In fact, he said that right in front of Ralph. You're implying that he wants Nader to get more votes than anyone else, which of course could not possibly be the case if he's endorsing Baldwin.

no no no

at that time Ron did not endorse Baldwin first of all.

he endorsed all 3rd party candidates.

Ron is in Congress as republican and would have problems if he endorsed Nader.........they are friends and CFL and Nader's movement are going to be a powerful force...

You can't "endorse" more

You can't "endorse" more than one candidate. What he said was, and in fact this was the point of the pc, was that people of all stripes should vote for one of the minority parties because the two majors have become corrupted (although he didn't use that word). He in no way "endorses" Nader's socialism, let along Nader himself, and made a point of saying so.

I'm not sure of your point in all of this, but it's a losing proposition to come to a Ron Paul website and try to pretend that he and Ralph Nader stand for the same things. I appreciate your enthusiasm for someone who at least is not a Party shill, but Nader advocates "carbon taxes", an end to "corporatism" (i.e., capitalism), more government, etc., etc., which are not things going to fly with Ron Paul supporters or the Liberty movement in general.

Sorry if I came on harsh, you've always been civil.

Peace out, I'm done.

I agree with you

in this that we don't need carbon taxes
global warming is a lie

........cheers!
Nader is learning every day.

The best way to get out of

The best way to get out of the current situation is more capitalism. Not the cheap, Communazi, special interest type of "capitalism" but a really free market. Having the gov't butting in may seem good at first for some but at the end it just creates the same problems it fought.

waiting for more feedback

the crooks within capitalism had to use socialism to bail themselves out.
Nothing against pure capitalism.
