Ralph Nader Makes Another Run

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , — Joe De Luca @ 1:46 pm

To paraphrase Ralph…noboby should tell you not to vote, or who to vote for, and anyone wanting to run should be able to. That is a true democracy. No bureaucracy. No red tape. There are only three requirements to run for the candidacy. Minimum of 35 years of age, be a natural born US citizen, and 14 years of residency.

It goes without saying that the more people run for office, the more choices we have. Forget about whether a third party candidate has any real chance of winning. The answer is, at least under the current system, no. What this is really about is giving people a voice. It’s about non-violent protest. It’s about sending a message to the establishment.

When enough people wake up to the fact that the current system is closer to an oligarchy than a democracy, only then will we get closer to a free and open society.
