Yes it was.

Creator of OSHA and the EPA. Champion of consumer protection. This man has accomplished so much good for workers in this country.

They took him down like a dog in the name of party politics.

Republicans called him a left wing wack-job and democrats blamed him for their failures.

Ralph is like a timex.He just keeps ticking away at them.And he seems to be very happy to do so.He is not concerned about money.And is a true hero to America.

Democrats sued Nader in Pennsylvania for registration validity, found enough that were "suspect" and then sued him, personally, for 100k in legal fees.

The Republicans got Virgil Goode to drop out in Pennsylvania with the simple threat of suing him.

Super PACs running wild and the same group of criminals in charge for the last 30 years.

This is not a democracy or a republic. Its an oligarchy. Its a total disaster.

And the people seem to think its as good as it gets.

it sends a message and the message is from the corporate rule.

Bow down to your corporate masters or get eaten alive.

Same thing with occupiers protesting- get the hell out of the way or go to jail. Didnt matter what party ran the city, same result- arrest and beat em.

downvoted for going against the corporate structure again. They don't even realize they're working against themselves. They still want to blame Nader for 9/11. Even though 10 million registered democrats voted for Bush, they would still rather just banish Nader, the guy who challenged the corporate structure.

Yep yep. Occupy got hosed by the political establishment. And beaten by the cops.

The majority of the nation just voted against their own interests. Dominated by fear and false information.

Im going to love how the countdown for new years will also be the countdown to the dreaded "fiscal cliff" (que doomsday music)...)or circus music..

Went out last night, not sure if I have the energy for any partying tonight.

"fiscal cliff" please you gotta be .....moronic if you believe that shit.

Nader is old news! The 2000 election was stolen by GWBush bro (the gov of fla) and the repub supreme court.

Remember? Nader was inconsequencial because 3rd parties are frozen out in American politics.

Understand?

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

Nader is just as important as ever.

Also that's not what you said weeks ago.

[-] 2 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

or has it been since november? lol

The 2000 elections were about people choosing the guy who just sent all the jobs overseas, allowed mortgages to become investment opportunities, and screwed with commodities vs the hick from Texas, and son of CIA head.

And a man of the people that most were too scared to vote for.

Great fuckin choices as usual (excluding Nader)

I love Nader but he is old and done! God bless him and thanks for all his good work. But the 2000 election was about republican theft & corruption!

Period

[-] 1 points by TrevorMnemonic (5827) 1 year ago

Again before the election you were blaming him for 9/11 and Iraq. If it wasn't you it was Factrfun and you were backing him.

He is not old and done. He's been banished by corporate party hacks in Washington.

Nader the traitor has crawled under a rock,

It’s the only place safe from the things that he wrought.

As millennia approached us, we had one last shot,

To keep the plant we’re on from getting, too damn hot.

But Nader thought better his name should be heard.

And Gore was left standing with only his word.

Too bad Gore couldnt get those other 50% of the people to the polls.

Too bad all you people who allegedly care about the planet voted for the guy who shipped all the jobs to ZERO regs China.

Too bad all you people who allegedly care about the planet voted for the guy who implemented NAFTA, using the ZERO regs Mexico for factories.

Too bad you are all a bunch of hypocrites.

But thank god you D/R party hacks are on the way out.

Corporate propaganda 101

Take out real liberals that try to take on the corporate takeover.

They even have democrats attacking liberal groups now. How sad.

Its a full on attack on Occupy from all sides. They couldnt coopt like the right and the TP, so its attack time. Tie them to bombs in Cleavland and NYC, make em look nuts, etc.

Shooz is on a full on assault on reform here right now, firing his six shooter into the sky and howling at the top of his lungs.

That donkey is about to back up and kick him as well, and he doesnt even realize it.

through counter intelligence it should be possible to pin point potential troublemakers... and neutralize them.

Black Bloc was also used to take down Occupy.

You don't speak for me Mnoronic!!! I never said anything of the kind.

Nader is almost 80 years old. He's done. I'm sorry. We love 'em but we gotta move on. Jill Stein is the new green candidate.

We'll always have our memories.

Every president from Nixon to Bush 1 had a sitdown with Ralph in the White House after they took office. Then Clinton broke tradition. The rest is history.

Read my lips - they're still 2 of the worst presidents in history.
