Conservative Groups Supporting Nader

Two conservative groups, the Oregon Family Council and Citizens for a Sound Economy, have been accused of telephoning people to help Nader get on the Presidential ballot in Oregon. A watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, filed an official complaint with federal election officials. Both conservative groups denied doing anything illegal, but say they have been helping Nader get on the ballot to detract votes from John Kerry. There have also been accusations of wrong-doing from the Bush campaign in the complaint.

Source Fox News:

Sloan said she also would name the Nader and Bush campaigns in her complaint because of reports that some Bush-Cheney volunteers may have made similar calls from Bush campaign offices.

"If Bush-Cheney was soliciting those corporations to assist the Nader campaign, then that's a violation," she said.

Sloan's group also filed an FEC complaint against Nader last week saying the consumer advocate violated federal campaign laws by accepting office space and telephone service from a public charity he created. Nader has called all the complaints frivolous.

These developments are making the 2004 election a little more interesting with the recent nomination of David Cobb for the Green Party over Nader. The Green Party seems to be trying to detract votes from Nader to ensure Kerry will be in office. At the same time, conservative groups are using Nader as a tool to detract votes from Kerry. Will these tactics be effective? Will we see another close election in 2004 where the race is decided by the votes afforded to Independent candidates? I believe right now we are seeing where the election will be heading. If Nader cannot make the ballot in enough states, he may not have enough sway to take away votes from Kerry and push the election in Bush's favor.

Politics can get downright dirty, as we've all seen. It just goes to show, Bush supporters are scared to death b/c they know they're probably gonna lose in November. I voted for Bush in 2000. Now I can't wait to see the door hit him on the a$$ on the way out.

70 million dollars were spent trying unsucessfully to indite Clinton, while the Bush admin reveals CIA names, Lies about weapons of Mass destruction, Has Ken Lay helping to decide the nation's energy policy, tells Saudi Arabia about Iraq war before Colin Powell, and no one, including Democrats seems to bat an eye. They always make scathing comments and insinuations, while infact they are the most cynical and corrupt people around. Tom Delay Speaker of the house uses sham 'Childrens' charities to gain illegal campaign money. They have sold out the american public airwaves at the FCC to all the big media corps. Bush watered down the money laundering provisions of the 'Patriot Act', because the big tobbacco companies wanted to protect the huge profits they made dealing with illegal drug money. Harvey Pitt, an exlobbyist for the Big Accounting firms, was originally appointed as SEC head. He was supposedly there to clean up Wall-Street and its Accounting practices (Fox guarding the henhouse). The current head of the EPA is an ex-lawer for the firm representing Big polluting firms. The FDA is mostly funded by the big Drug companies. (Doesn't that give you a clue to how un-biased they are) The new medicare bill was scripted by the big Drug companies, which is why they block the freemarket of getting your drugs cheaper in Canada.

If the terrorists had hit the capital and the whitehouse on 9-11 the American people would have been far better off.

If you want Cynicism and corruption, vote Republican

(Please excuse, it just feels good to rant)
