Why we should not vote for a 3rd party candidate (i.e., Ralph Nader)?
“When the house is on fire, it is not the right time to fix the furniture.”
Fantastic debate… highlights my two favorite political candidates. Nader is intelligent and obviously the champion of the regular citizen and consumer. Dean is likewise intelligent. I am still disappointed that he can’t represent me as President. Yet, I believe what Dean says, it’s important to work together to get Bush out of office.
It’s not 3rd parties that take away votes from the big political parties. It’s the big political parties that abandon states where they believe they can’t win. More votes (about 8 times as much) were lost to the Republicans from the Democrats than to the Nader-LaDuke ticket from the Democrats.
