Run, Ralph, Run

I voted for Nader in 1996 and 2000, and he certainly has every right to run this year. “This country has more problems and injustices than it deserves,” he says, and it’s nice to have someone of Nader’s intellect, integrity and prominence to make that point.

That said, I suspect I’m not alone when I say that I’ll be pulling the Kerry lever this November. Yes, there’s too little difference between the two parties. Yes, corporations are running roughshod over Washington. But George W. Bush is an evil, vicious fascist who must be removed from office at once, ideally via impeachment and jailing. If anything, November is too long to wait, but if that’s what’s necessary, so be it. John Kerry, while far from an ideal candidate, would return the United States government to the hands of sane, rational, garden-variety tools of corporate corruption–a massive improvement over the concentration camp goons occupying Washington now.

Nader’s campaign is to be commended for bringing up issues that were in danger of falling by the wayside after Howard Dean’s demise. But voting for it? Maybe in 2008.
