I think it is great that people stood their ground and voted for Nader. If anyone is to blame it is the over 100 million people who didn't vote, or those who don't vote their conscience, or those who vote for the lesser of two evils, or those who do not investigate all possibilities. These people do not support true democracy, but support the two party stranglehold on our duopoly, not democracy. I vote for a candidate bacause I believe in what they have to say and the issues that they stand for. The polls suggest that people didn't vote on Bush or Gore because of where they stood on the issues but on whether they had good character.

By voting for Gore or Bush people have sent a clear message to Washington ... KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! We support skyrocketing health care costs while at the same time seeing declining health. We support declining educational outcome. We support high rates of crime and violence with no clear way of stopping it. We support the decimation of the environment. Gore is still bought and paid for by the same special interest groups as Bush, maybe not to the same extent, but by the same ones. He would only be marginally better than Bush.
