Ralph Nader to run for president

Meet the Press and Meet the Candidate! Ralph Nader has announced that he is running for the White House for the umpteenth time. He said most Americans are disenchanted with the Democratic and Republican parties. I'm not sure that's wholly true, but let's not spoil the message. He claims that none of the presidential contenders are addressing ways to stem corporate crime and Pentagon waste and promote labor rights. Has he got temporary memory loss? Ron Paul has mentioned it, so has Obama, I believe Hillary Clinton has too. Mike Huckabee is not in favour of corporate crime, in fact who is, apart from those involved in it?

One thing his previous running mate, Peter Camejo, said that rings true is, "You've got to keep running to raise the issues that are never discussed. There's a whole series of issues that only a Ralph Nader would raise." Very well said. But then I believe that that is true of Ron Paul.

Let's wait and see if Mr. Nader gets a drubbing in the media!
