A vote for Nader is not and never will be a vote for McCain, simply because our government is not strictly a two-party governnment. We should fear the day it becomes one, and we should rebel against corporate party dominance every chance we get. Voters have power and every vote sends a message. While a vote for Nader sends the message that one more voter is willing to demand real change, a vote for Obama/McCain is a vote for a continuation of the status quo. A vote for Nader is a vote for Nader, who is not the least worst of two, but the very best of six--a great leader standing up for a progressive, populist platform. A vote for Obama/McCain is a vote that further entrenches us in the stagnant two-party mindset that is speeding this once-great nation to its demise.
