For Once I Think Ralph Nader Is Right!

I have to agree with the ClintonDems site on the fact that I think Ralph Nader is right on this one

"This from the Nader website via ClintonDems.com

“But Obama is now head of the Democratic Party, and the Democrats convention in Denver is inviting corporate donors to become ’sponsors’ of the convention, promising executives a ‘once in a lifetime’ opportunity to rub shoulders with Democratic senators, members of Congress, and governors. According to The New York Times of June 7, donors who give $1 million or more are given access to all hospitality suites and private events, providing what one public interest group called, ’special access to federal elected officials [and] national party leaders.’ ”

“Perhaps fearing that some corporate officials might be as dense as the proverbial piano player at the whorehouse who claimed not to know what was going on upstairs, a brochure from the host committee proclaims that ‘this is a rare opportunity to play a leadership role in a substantive discussion on timely issues affecting your industry with . . . elected officials and members of the media.’ ““

Hillary Clinton supporters who cannot stomach the idea of voting for Obama should not vote for McCain. Instead they should vote for better progressive candidates like Ralph Nader or Cynthia McKinney.

If you agree with this article, I think you will find a great deal more at votenader.org that you agree with. Keep an open mind and check it out.

The GOP's invitations give the same access at their convention for $5 million. The practice isn't new and goes back to at least the '84 conventions. It is how they pay for all the balloons. I don't agree with this practice, but on the issue scale - there are much heftier ones.
