I just got a big win for our movement by forging a principled agreement with a strongly influential young progressive activist. This type of exchange is exactly why I'm so encouraged about our opportunity here with the occupy movement. What do you think?
Here are the posts:
Ron Paul has shown a tremendous ability to find common ground with individuals who have a different ideological mindset. Throughout his career, Paul has worked with Ralph Nader, Cynthia McKinney, and Bernie Sanders.

I've wanted to introduce the two of them for a while now, and after reading what Nader has been up to recently, I REALLY want to make this happen.
Robin is a good friend of mine, and I can bring him to the table, can anyone here help get Nader there?
If you can assist with this, please write me at

Ralph Nader Hearts Ron Paul, Hails Potential Left-Libertarian Alliance
Matt Welch | September 28, 2011
Michael Tracey, who wrote about restrictive teen-driving laws in the June issue of Reason, catches up with the consumer crusader for The American Conservative:
Looking ahead to the 2012 presidential race, one might assume that Nader has little to be cheerful about.
Yet he says there is one candidate who sticks out—who even gives him hope: Rep. Ron Paul of Texas.
"Look at the latitude," Nader says, referring to the potential for cooperation between libertarians and the left. "Military budget, foreign wars, empire, Patriot Act, corporate welfare—for starters. When you add those all up, that's a foundational convergence. Progressives should do so good."
A great response to an important qustion! What is yours?
And I like the "Slug" too. :) (Broadcasting Humor...hee, hee)
"Nader on why should democrats register as REPUBLICANS"
"In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way."
Ralph Nader to Challenge Barack Obama
Gary Johnson to be included in Fox Debate
It appears that there has been a recent decision to split the Ron Paul support. Blue Republicans can be distracted by Nader, and I wouldn't be surprised if Gary Johnson has a "great debate" (in the eyes of the media) and starts making some traction.
Ralph Nader is a five-time candidate for President of the United States, with a particular concern for consumer protection, environmentalism and democratic government. Some claim the lecturer and attorney has been merely a political disruptor over the years, acting as a third-party spoiler for instance in the 2000 U.S. presidential election.
Sounds like what some conservatives are already saying about GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul.
